Inspiration For Screenplay:

Rock n’ Roll is obviously and inspiration for this story. However, I believe the hardship of aging is a theme that haunts us; the dubious dream of perpetual adolescence and the idea that someone is always younger than you are. Life is far from logical, unexpected events occur, plans change and our adolescent dreams are eventually left behind.


The Alien’s Puppets is a rock n’ roll comedy. The film follows Jerry Tycoon, an old-aged junkie, who tracks down his old friends and persuades them to get together their heavy metal band – The Alien’s Puppets – as a last wish before the cancer takes his life. The group embarks on this musical adventure as teenagers, but the dream may end when they discover the real reason for Jerry reunites the band: The Spirit of God Festival.
