ALIEN



Title: Giger’s Alien (1979)

Source:

IMDb: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079210/

Summary: Very aware of being part of an important project, the modern artist H.R.Giger made a short film out of his work on the settings and the costumes of Ridley's Scott's classic. As a result, he gives us an essential document focusing on the artistic aspect of movie-making. We are so much used to the standard "making of" concept focused on the director and the actors that we get kind of unsettled by this unusual angle.” (quoted from IMDb.) Includes "Space Jockey" construction, warrior head mechanical effects, shots of Giger himself constructing the original Alien with bones and clay, an interview with Ridley Scott, and more.  Subtitles.

Summary: The horrifying vision of Swiss artist H.R. Giger and the creative genius of effects masters Steve Johnson and Richard Edlund come together to give birth to a terrifying "biomechanoid" alien in the sci-fi thriller, Species. The challenge for Giger, who won an Oscar for his work on Alien, is to design a female life form, called Sil, which is both beautiful and frightening. Once Giger's designs are complete, Johnson, founder of XFX Inc., creates a full-size robot, to be used on set with the actors. Then, four-time Academy Award-winner Edlund creates a digital version of Sil in the computer using a state-of-the-art "motion-capture" system.
