Aliens swooping to steal innocent souls from Baildon Moor is the subject of a self-made film trailer by a Keighley graphic designer.

Sci-fi fan Adam Mawson had long considered making a movie based on alien abduction, when he hit on the idea of creating a short promotional film, as if the movie had been made.

The father-of-one from Strathallan Drive in Baildon used his mobile phone to capture some images of the town and moor before creating special effects using self-taught computer software skills.

Mr Mawson, who works for L&S Prints in Keighley, said: “It’s a totally new venture for me.

“I’ve just got a passion for films and had these ideas for making an alien film based around Baildon.

“It’s just an ideal place for it with the houses so close to the high moor where there have been lots of sightings of UFOs over the years,” said Mr Mawson, 37. “It would be a really different, interesting place for something to happen.”

After filming footage on his phone, Mr Mawson added the magic of speeding stellar lights and extraterrestrial images to create a gripping promotional clip, which is now available to see on YouTube at

He said: “None of the friends and family I’ve shown it to can believe I made it all myself!”
