What Liam O'Donnell has achieved with Skylines (2020) is just about every film student's dream...
Starting out as a completely independent film venture, based heavily on the locations they happened to have access to, the film series has grown into a treasured collection of science fiction action movies. All three films are available on either Netflix, Amazon or iTunes and star huge names such as Lindsey Morgan, Rhona Mitra, James Cosmo and Alexander Siddig.
The trilogy's director Liam O'Donnell shares his filmmaking secrets with presenter and actress, Aiysha Jebali as they discuss everything from writing the treatments to post production spending and everything else in-between.
These films certainly pack a punch with phenomenal stunt artists from The Raid (2011), James Bond: Skyfall (2012) and Captain Marvel (2019), alongside actors like Daniel Bernhardt and Cha-Lee Yoon being willing and more than capable of doing their own action sequences too.
"When a virus threatens to turn the now earth-dwelling friendly alien hybrids against humans, Captain Rose Corley must lead a team of elite mercenaries on a mission to the alien world in order to save what's left of humanity."
