My wife and I watched J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 the other night. While she merely enjoyed it, I loved it. It was like stepping back into my childhood, especially the sci-fi influenced imagination of my childhood.

The film takes place in the summer of 1979 and follows a group of friends making a super-8 zombie film and what happens when they witness and train crash that releases an alien into their town. It’s insanely fun. Especially if you were 11 years old in 1979 and spent the summer wishing your town would be invaded by aliens.

It gave me the idea to create a little collage of sci-fi in the summer of 1979. The result is above.
