SpiderDad was created by a little boys father, me, Mike Wilson. With a passion for film and all things action, I decided over 12 months ago to help make our son’s dream come true, by replicating his most favorite superhero, Spider-Man. Jayden is a massive fan of the famous web slinger, having watch hundreds of Animated TV shows, as well as the films. For me, it was about making this dream become a reality. But not as some guy in a costume, bought from Ebay or Amazon. But to look and move as real to the character as possible. As a person who works in TV, Film and Live Show business, its the small details that make a huge difference. It was this moment I thought of SpiderDad.
“The SpiderDad Film was inspired by my son Jayden who sadly lost his 18 month battle at Christmas to a Grade 4 Brain Stem Tumor called, Glyoblastoma Multi-Forme. Before he died, we began filming with the full intention of giving Jayden his very own Premiere at home, with drinks and popcorn. Just like at the cinema. I was very passionate about making this look and feel as real as possible for our little super hero. Even to the finest details of webbing effects, stunts, the Spiderman suit and generally providing a feel good energy about the film.
Sadly, the little fighter became very ill, and his very own Premiere wasn’t able to happen. It became a dedication project to the bravest, and most courageous little boy we know, always willing to give a smile and thumbs up at even the most difficult of times. In addition, we wanted this to also raise awareness and money for the charity who gave our family so much support whilst caring for Jayden, as well as the continued after care for our entire family and his big sister Ella.
We’ve been working closely with my YouTube partner, Rightster / Flow to help with the promotion and monetization of the video. 100% the money raised through Views and Ads will go direct to Naomi House. The concept of this fund raising Spiderman video is simple. Watch and Share to as many people as you can. The best part is, you don’t need to part with any money to donate. YouTube does the rest.”
As Wilson told the BBC, he originally envisioned the film to debut with a Hollywood-style premiere for the film at his home, with Jayden as the guest of honor. Each view of the short will equal a contribution towards a fundraising campaign established in Jayden’s memory, raising money for children’s hospice Naomi House & Jacksplace.

While the sci-fi and horror communities are quick to embrace the first two films in the Alien series, people were far more polarized by Prometheus, the 2012 sci-fi/thriller directed by Ridley Scott that took place in the same cinematic universe. ‘Derelict’ is an editing project for academic purposes. ‘Prometheus’ wasn’t exactly an Alien prequel, but this treats it as such by intercutting the events of Alien with Prometheus in a dual narrative structure. The goal was to assemble the material to emphasize the strengths of Prometheus as well as its ties to Alien. ‘Derelict’ is in black & white to better marry the visual quality of the two originals (and also because both films look great in black & white). Roughly 30 minutes has been cut from Prometheus and about an hour of Alien has been used in its place. Some content from the deleted scenes of Prometheus was also used.
