Filmmakers’ statements

Alex Loubert: For me, this film was all about taking my next steps in the evolution of my cinematic career. I have worked as a PA, an AD and an actor, and I decided to take my fate into my own hands and start making my own content. This was a labour of love, a creation with many mothers and fathers and I was thrilled to be part of it.

Zach Ramelan: For years science fiction has captivated me because of its ability to predict and exaggerate our future society. So, when Alex Loubert approached me with Companionship I immediately signed on, intrigued by the universe we were going to build together.

Each step of the way I was completely blown away by the hard work and dedication our creative team provided. Any idea felt achievable, from creating massive visual effects on billboards to designing a futuristic apartment. This movie is a fine example of collaborative creativity conquering any obstacle in its way, and that’s what film is all about.

To me, Companionship is more than just a film, it is a universe of possibilities. Every time I watch the movie, I make up new technology, characters and stories in that reality. It’s a fun world to explore, and I’m so damn happy I got to play in it.
