Jed, a young Scot on a boozy night out at his remote local pub is forcibly abducted and teleported to a distant alien dive-bar by two bored sociopathic female aliens, who challenge him to defeat them in a drinking competition or suffer being eaten alive as an after-party man-snack. But on the upside, the beers are free.

about Spacebeers

The brainchild of director/producer Maurice Schutte and screenwriter Philip M. Howe (who met during a boozy night out during the Cannes Film Festival), the universe of Space Beers will hold many stories- the first of which is being told in the form of an animated prologue to introduce Zendra (Sophia La Porta) and Talia (Victoria Broom) a short film brought to life by co-directors Maurice Schutte and Bouke van Veen. Space Beers is not your typical sci-fi production. We slur our words and shoot from the hip, steering clear of the sterilized and oh-so-perfect “clean white environment” aesthetic, choosing instead a grungier colour palate.

The Space Beers universe is, well, as big as the universe! But what you probably didn’t know is that most of the aliens out there are just as messed up and bored as we are. Sure, some have all the latest gizmos, like faster-than-light travel, flying bubble drunk-tanks, and A.I powered alien abduction machines, but what they don’t have is Earth beer! Well, they didn’t, until a young Scot named Jed is abducted by two bored, sociopathic aliens girls on a bender, in our forthcoming Space Beers film short (2017).

So, the story so far…

Animation film, check! Short live-action movie, check! Branded beer courtesy of Two Chefs brewery, check! Pop-up bars in discussion, check! Leading to… FEATURE FILM FRANCHISE! Sound ambitious? Hey, there are diamond covered aliens out there that drink booze from the skulls of unicorns. We want in on that action!

Space Beers is being produced by the Space Brewery, a production company headed by producer Maurice Schutte and executive producer Martijn Boomsma.

Zendra and Talia, two psychotic alien students travelling the universe on a gap year, visit a far-out dive-bar to ease their terminal boredom. But, unimpressed by the unsavory local clientele, decide to teleport random aliens to their table for an epic drinking competition. However, when you have daddy’s unlimited credit card and the entire universe at your fingertips, it takes a bit of trial and error to find that perfect challenger.
