Alien: Special Order - Short Alien Fan Film (Read 8,741 times)

French Alien fan Louis Thomann has just released his fan film, Alien: Special Order! Built using the Source Filmmaker with assets from Alien: Isolation and other games, Special Order is the result of nearly two years of Louis’ time putting together this awesome tribute to Alien.

“This is a fanfilm based on the Alien Movies that I started to develop almost two years ago all alone, and was created on spare time only. Without any budget, shot the film in real conditions was something that would be impossible to achieve regarding the need of the scenery that took place in Alien, and so, I’ve decided to develop it through the Source Filmmaker, a video game engine created by Valve Software, that allowed me to create an animation film in real time.”

Pretty damn good. No real story to be had, but great atmosphere and work with the animations.

well done homage to the good aspects of the Alien movies, the creator understood what made the movies so outstanding

I liked it. I liked the view from inside a helmet. I also liked how the Queen was used.

Well done!

Still Collating...

Much better than I was expecting. I really liked it. It looked great, all of it: the hive, the alien, the Queen, even the crappy A:CM eggs had a nice look. Great atmosphere and the animations were nice, too. I'd definitely want to see more!

I really enjoyed it. The environments and lighting is so good, it looks like live action. By the end of it, I wanted to see even more.

Is it supposed to be the Derelict on LV426?

It was a good short!

It is only a shame that they used same musics, same effects, same mechanics gone cliché (for example victim cooconed, waken up by human just to chestburst), same reactions... It just feels like a bold lack of fantasy and ideas.

Fantastic! This was so much fun to watch. It had little homages to the other films, yet it all flowed so wonderfully. The only thing I'd say was questionable was the "B.S." line, it just felt alittle forced and out of place. Other than that I'm stunned. The scene where the queen appeared in front of the guy and the grandiose music started to play was my favorite part, it really felt like a was watching an actual Alien film. This is how you do it. Take notes Fox.


"Is it supposed to be the Derelict on LV426?"

I'm not sure. Looking at that warning strobe and closing door at the end makes wonder if it's some kind of company owned hive, and those guys were fooled into going down there as food or to see if the hive was still active. Could be the company has finally found the derelict, and has sealed the original hive though. Either way, something dirty is going on there.

I'll admit, when I saw the title I thought it was going to be some art piece with aliens set in a restaurant. Boy was I pleasantly surprised.

Holy crap I had the shivers watching this! While nothing  "new" or original was tried in what is happening, everything about it felt so right! Marvelous use of the music from all 4 of the Alien scores, I really loved the animation of the Drones in particular, they felt very aggressive. The final part with the Queen was the cherry on top, both visually and musically, amazing finale! Congratulations to you sir, you made me feel more with this short film than both Ridley's 2 last entries in the Alien universe did. This is the stuff I miss about the Alien universe. Oh ,great intro with the lighting, not sure if you're seing a planet in space first, then it comes to you that you are entering a nest...argh!

This is amazing and more effective than either of the Alien prequels.

Yeah, my thought after seeing the warning light and the door was it was some sort of corporation owned hived up area too. Made sense with the Special Order title. I thought that perhaps they were just a research team. There was some dialogue about finding the subject when they found the unbursted woman.
