Amalgamated Dynamics Inc. Shares New Alien vs. Predator Behind-the-Scenes Video

Over the last few years Amalgamated Dynamics Inc. has been sharing some very cool behind-the-scenes videos from their work on Alien 3, Alien Resurrection and the Alien vs. Predator films to their studioADI YouTube channel.

Following on from a recent video showing the filming of the flashback scenes from Paul Anderson’s Alien vs. Predator, studioADI have released another AvP video showing behind-the-scenes on the filming of Scar blooding himself and a close-up segment of big Celtic vs. Grid fight during the middle of the film.

“A quick trip through the pyramid stage on the set of ALIEN VS PREDATOR reveals a near naked Ian Whyte being suited up as the Predator. This guy kicked ass! Also some behind-the-scenes coverage of Tom Woodruff, Jr. operating the insert Alien head with the working inner mouth and while Lance Henriksen and Sanaa Lathan await their cues.”

Be sure to head on over to the studioADI YouTube channel and check out all the other behind-the-scenes videos that have been uploaded. In addition to their work with Alien and Predator, there’s also plenty of videos from ADI’s involvement with other films.

I would also recommend checking out their War Crimes videos in which Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff Jr discuss in detail their work on the later Alien films and the reasoning behind some of the controversial design choices.

    This illustrates very well why the predators in this movie look so bulky and short (even Scar); the greaves are so chunky and short that they make the legs look way thicker and shorter than they are. Really poor design in my view. The armour could - should - have been much thinner and more form-fitting.

    I swear...I was at a sports bar and it aired on tv.  It showed unmasked predator...And upgrade slamming a pred into a car. And yes the upgrade is like 10ft tall. But looked cool. Am I the only one!?!?! I can't find anything online!!!??

    The problem was that they didn't go far enough with the predators and pyramids thing. They had storyboards of Preds hunting Mayan warriors in the jungle... That would have been cool! Like Apocalypto except that guy dressed like a Pred would actually be a Pred! Come on that would be awesome.

    So why is it that so many movies put their best material in a flashback and throw it away? Make the movie the flashback!

    Turning the predators into ancient astronauts was the worst bit imo.

    I always had a soft spot for that von Daniken thing - I blame Stargate - so that never really bothered me. That said, there's no denying how cool those sets looked. I'm sure they could have made an awesome spaceship or colony set for that film. They did such a great job with the cash they had

    I dont mind the idea of ancient astronauts in fiction, like with prometheus. I just didnt like the idea of it being the predators. Having them guide our early civilizations wasnt something i liked or wanted regarding their lore. Otherwise i really enjoyed the armor and weapon designs even if the effects looked a little fake.

    The sets were also great. I do think the film could have been amazing with some slight changes in, setting, tone, and execution.

    As much as I hate the film I do enjoy behind the scenes stuff.  I've always been interested in making of's and behind the scenes documentaries for films.  Glad they share this material on youtube.

    Alien inner mouth is too long, Predators dreadlocks are too long, Predators upper teeth are in pair normally (snake reference) but in this movie they have more upper teeth, I dont like these changes, but in this film. . I respected that as something different made for totally different (lore) dimension. The entire movie was filmed in my country (Czech Republic) thats the reason why they created so much with such a low budget, we arent that expensive. Paul Anderson is horrible director, so this movie could be even worst thanks to him. My dream is to see one day an Alien or Predator film from someone like Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson or once again from James Cameron, damn. . I will be highly interested in the Predator from James Cameron perspective, of course if he ever will have any interested in it.

    I don't think they ever quite got the Predators fighting the digital Aliens quite right on the top of the pyramid.  That stab the centre one does doesn't look like it connects with anything.

    Other than that it was one of the best scenes in the film.

    Why was this never released before. How much more stuff is out there. The studios should dump all the footage on you tube or something. 

    Looks like ADI has been and will continue to release these kind of things. We'll endeavour to give them better coverage too.

    That roar though :laugh:

    Say what you like about how well or not AVP stands up as a film, it contributed a lot of cool stuff to the mythos- Preds as von Daniken's 'Ancient Astronauts' etc, and some great design... New weapons, Pred armour, Celtic... It really expanded the Universe. I'll take the good from it and ignore the bad.

    Janky plot elements aside, I'm with you on the new weapons, armor, etc.

    I genuinely don't believe it added a single thing worthwhile, but each to their own.

    I'm only now just realizing how long the Predator dredds were in AvP. I do love ADI are posting these videos, think I'm going to have to cover these on the front page. It was somewhat surreal watching them film that part of big fight - looks so strange like that. I remember that image of Celtic and Grid face-to-face as being used quite frequently in the marketing too.
