I LOVE the 1978 movie Alien.  The atmosphere, the design, the cast, the ambience, the pacing - everything is just darn perfect.  Toy company NECA has been making figures based on the movie Alien and it's franchise, and I've been picking some up, making some dioramas here at the studio and making some more "cinematic" photographs using the toys.  I wanted to share a little about how I'm making them and share some of them here on the blog.

"The pit is completely enclosed. And it's full of leathery objects, like eggs or something."

I love the 1979 movie Alien. It's one of my favorites.

Toy maker Super7 just came out with these retro-style "ReAction" figures from Alien. I had to get the figure for Kane and take a photo of him.

This image was made using little colored finger lights I got at the dollar store, and cut up clear plastic water bottles for the "walls".

I wanted something dark, with just a kiss of light on his helmet so you can see his face.  The finger lights bounce off the water bottles and give the little color highlights.
