ALIEN (1979)

"You still don't understand what you're dealing with do you?" Alien is a 1979 science-fiction horror film that had it all; a kick-ass hero played perfectly by Sigourney Weaver, directed to visual perfection by the legendary Ridley Scott and introduced one of cinemas most terrifying villains designed by H.R. Giger. The film still looks great by today's standards.


I used a variety of lighting effects and shadow blocks to enhance the claustrophobic feeling of the Nostromo ship. The "light at the end of the tunnel" is white and pure to represent Ripley's salvation. I spent a lot of time on the details for the corridors. I wanted to make sure it felt authentic in the way it represents the film.
