"Open the goddamn hatch we have to get him inside..." ALIEN

I love toys and action figures. I love Ridley Scott’s 1979 science-fiction masterpiece “ALIEN”. I especially love toymaker NECA and their toys based off of that film.

I took a week and sat down with some of these figures and created some small “moving stills” vignettes so that I could play with composition and moving the camera and smoke and lasers and all kinds of stuff.

Over the next three days I’ll be posting the three videos I created from that week of playing and experimenting. Some of these use audio and music from the 1979 film.

This is the 3rd of 3 posts.
