Title: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: alexpj19 on Feb 08, 2008, 03:30:00 AM
Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum, thought you might wanna check out a teaser for my upcoming AVP short film titeled "Redemption".

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=goa0t9wdzsw

Only opening shots up to the "Action" part are final shots, the rest are just some tests i did before start shooting. i'll be putting a website together, with updates on a project, stills from a new shots and posters.

Enjoy.

all of the "fast action" shots were just a simple tests, final shots with aliens will look completly different, here is a little test i did a few days ago  its a little bit better idea of what aliens will look like in this movie.

I'm surprised it took this long for someone to do a film like this. This is real Predator and CGI environment, right?
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: alexpj19 on Feb 08, 2008, 10:45:57 AM
yeah, invironment 100% CG created in maya, i just started to learn it a month ago, so i'm trying to make it as real as i can :)
Predator and some props were shot on green screen, all home made (card board, duck tape, and a lots of hours )

Yeah, I'm familiar with the technique. Looks pretty cool for only a months work. Did you do all the ships and etc too?

Like I said in the email, it looks very good so far. The alien test shot looks a lot better too.

Post by: alexpj19 on Feb 10, 2008, 03:23:38 AM
Little update on the process:   18 shots are completed all including CG and color correction, I also finished a story boards for the Alien fight ( total body count is 9 ), will start shooting in about 2 weeks, should have enough money saved up to rent a green screen and the crane by than :)

You guys will not be desapointed :)  my Predator will be Really mean to the Aliens  .

Post by: Alienseseses on Feb 10, 2008, 06:03:44 AM
For the love of God, make this film. Don't let anything stop you.

My only complaint is that the aliens seem so light, and the person in the Predator suit should act like there is actually something on him when an alien attacks.

But freaking awesome!

Is the predator's face CG?

Mod- is that the predator mask sold at the time of AVP? You know, the big floppy one?

 :) Guys , once again don't worry about look of the aliens in the teaser, alien shots were just some old tests i did, more recent test and the way aliens are gonna look can be seen here:

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=BU5emjK3MuI

I will make this film no matter what , but its a "no budget" film so it will take awhile, i think it will be finished around summer time.

thanks again for the support.
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: Alienseseses on Feb 10, 2008, 05:02:11 PM
That's good. Still, some problems with the test.

It seems fluid, which can be good, but I think it needs a little more weight.

Also, that pred mask. When I saw the trailer, I thought it was CG because of the movement and coloring. I just think it needs to be darker, that's all.
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: Alienseseses on Feb 10, 2008, 09:37:41 PM
How did you get the pred costume?

And how did you do the shot of him falling from above? Will he cloak in this?
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: alexpj19 on Feb 10, 2008, 10:06:23 PM
Unfortunatelly i couldnt afford a high quality mask so i bought one of thous AVP big masks for $50 and had to do some modifications to make it smaller and adding dradlocks. The jump was done in After effects, i panned camera from the roof down and when i was approaching the ground level i had friend of mine wearing a costume jump up as high as he could an land, than i took a still frame of him in the air and composited in to the scene when i was panning from the roof, as soon it reached predator i removed a still frame and switched to actual shot of him landing. Added shadow and motion blur, thats it.  The costume was home made for halloween originally, its made of card board   carefully covered with duck tape, all the details were also made of card board glued together and covered with duck tape, than the whole thing was painted with metallic spray paint (hammered metal ), than i went to my friends place and used his airbrush to paint the shadows, than with regular small brush i painted damage marks and rust. Body suite has just a "long Jones" thermal uderware  which was spray painted, and i used a velcro to hold  a shoulder pieces.
In this film Predator will be using Cloacking device  :)

Would you be able to repaint the face to add depth?
Man, I have a camera, a greenscreen, Adobe Premiere, and Maya, but I am not able to do what you just did.

Any reason the aliens are CG? They also have masks for those. Well, they aren't good, but they can be tweaked.

yes, I did Alex versus predator as a test 2 years ago, i used a few shots as a temp filler, couse i dont have any action or fight scenes shot yet.  :)

Best looking fan stuff for AvP I think I've seen.  My complaints are the Predator's movement, build, and costume quality (namely the helmet).  And as others suggested, the temporary Aliens aren't so hot.   But for a no-budget film, I'm amazed.  Can't wait to see the final product.  :)

I got 5 more shots completed with cg environment. web site is on the way, and i'll be releasing a short slide show with new stills :)

As for predator moves, he will be moving differently more hunter like when he is in unknown environment on the mission (but not in his own ship ) i wish i could get a better costume, but this one i made myself, so i'll try te use it the best i can  :)

cheers.

Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: alexpj19 on Feb 16, 2008, 03:59:16 AM
well the details of the plot is a secret, but the basic story line goes like this:
Predator character is an outcast , a lonely scout , looking for a mission worthy of a redemption in the yes of his clans elder. He finds an abandoned spaceship drifting in space, and going to check it out .
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: Stalker on Feb 16, 2008, 04:20:24 AM
It's definitely got alot of potential, I like the way you introduced the trailer with the predator text against the space & distorted backgrounds, that was great. As for the actual fights & battles...the aliens look like they just fly through the air when they get hit. It looks a little strange to be honest, but considering that you're probably working with a limited budget, it's understandable. Some great work with the CG & use of the AVP music, it was put together really well, & I'll definitely watch the final film once it's finished.
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film

S.E.E.D may have been good, but the story was just all over the place, you couldn't understand just what the hell was going on.

i agree, Seed was really bad in fact, awesome costumes locations, props and pyrotecnics, the rest was horrable. they had a huge potential, huge crew, nice equipment, professional costumes and free labor  :)   and they coldnt do anything good with it. How ever i give them credit for deadication  and for trying to make a cool film.

cheers.

The effects were good, but the acting story directing cinematography and editing were SH!^

Post by: Stalker on Feb 17, 2008, 10:31:46 AM
S.E.E.D. had potential, & the way they tied the storyline in with the Roswell crash was cool...but once it got into the thick of the action, I didn't have a clue what was going on. There were predators killing humans, aliens killing humans, predators fighting aliens...predators fighting predators, all while the camera was having a seizure. What a wasted opportunity.
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: Corporal Hicks on Feb 17, 2008, 12:48:53 PM
The editing was awful in S.E.E.D and it made no sense. It was just a glorified real life RPG for them.

hey hard core Predator fans, i need some input from you, i'm getting ready to shoot a scene in which my main predator character communicates with the Elder predator. i have a few ideas on how   Predator native language will sound like, but i would like to hear your ideas on it , i'm always open for a cool ideas.  :)

cheers
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: War Wager on Feb 28, 2008, 08:32:03 PM
You could have the Predator speak his lauguage into his wrist computer, slap in a few codes and then it plays back in the Elder's mask/screen or wherever he happens to be.
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: alexpj19 on Feb 28, 2008, 09:03:07 PM
i got their communication devices already done, it will be something like a hologram screen in front of  control panel, something like in AVPr i just posted a snap shot of what the cabin will look like , and the screen will be projected right in front of the chair. but i need some input on how Predators speech will sound like vocally . check out the screen shot in AVP artwork.

Cheers

I thought it was all the clicking noises they make. ^  :-\
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: alexpj19 on Mar 02, 2008, 10:39:07 AM
yeah, but you always thought the clicking is mostly to show their emotions, and yes, predators do click a lot, i guess they are very emotional  :-[
but their speech i thought should sound kind of like "jabba the hutt" but more throaty/clicky/vibraty, with clicking mixed in. 

Any thoughts?
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: Corporal Hicks on Mar 02, 2008, 11:10:00 AM
I don't think you should have any talking between Predators. It's just a recipe for bad.
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: War Wager on Mar 02, 2008, 11:38:30 AM
Yeah, I think you should just stick with the clicking. I mean if you've seen the cutscene from the game Concrete Jungle, you've got Scarface and the Elder 'discussing' his mission. Yet they're only clicking to each other.
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: alexpj19 on Mar 03, 2008, 08:28:56 AM
hey guys, i just got back home after 12 hour day of shooting AVP-R, got some eyepopping stuff
:)  finally shot a few fight scenes, using daggers and spear. i have one more day to shoot a predator scenes and additional day to shoot an alternative opening scene for extended edition that will feature some human characters.
As for the Predator speech, it is a very short scene bt very important, so they must talk , i need to check out a scene from "concrete jungle" for the reference, it deffenetly will be most of it clicking.

cheers.

well the idea for this shot, was that alien is trying to get the predator no matter what, probably using its hands to scratch him, i might put some sparks flying . :-\
Title: Re: NEW AVP-Redemption clip is online !!!
Post by: Corporal Hicks on Mar 06, 2008, 11:31:53 PM
Personally, I think the timing is an issue. Rearrange the shots of the wrist blades coming out before the Alien jumping. I think you should go for an MCU with a better shot of the struggle. See the Alien use it's tail or something. You don't want AvPR style fights.

Otherwise great job! Love the lighting and set.

Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: alexpj19 on Mar 07, 2008, 12:40:10 AM
The Set will be different , more like a corridor, with some sort of reactor at the end, the sequense and timing of this shots will be a little bit different, there are few times when predator gets hit, so yes, there will be "Predator" blood. :) the fight style will be kind of shaky, but i'll try to make it not as shaky as AVP, i will have a few Slow Motion moments, Everyone who saw 300 will apriciate it ;) fight scenes will have a few funny moments when predator will get kind of mean to the Aliens, This video i put together last night to give you guys some idea to what direction im heading to.

hey everyone, little update on a project its going very well, i have finished modeling  a predator's space ship, i tried to stay true to the original design from the first movie  with a touch of my own design :) the pilot chair scenes are done complete with hologram screen and so on, as far as predator character there is a huge improvement, now his face is 100% CG and fully animated :) looks cool , in fact i'm planning to post a screen shot of one of the scenes where you can see his face it will be in AVP artwork section. Im editing Alien fight right now a shot where alien looses his hand than leg than the head  :)   yes   its a butchery ...... 
i have 2 music compositors one in UK and one in itally both are super talented, i have some tracks already composited and its awesome!!!! sounds just like a soundtrack from a hollywood movie.  im also looking for some props for a human charactersi have 4 of them in the begening of the movie, they are kind of a space pirates. this way i'll show faces of people who involved in the production. I also shooting behing the scene footage for some featurets  :)   and once again the website is on its way. as you can see i got my hands full :)    but in the end it will worth every hour i spent on it .

I just saw your trailer, and if I may say... :o

Any negativity I may have dispersed at an earlier time has vanished from my mind.

Firstly, I'd like to say that your film does not look z-budget. The CG is fantastic. The cinematography is exquisite (and I'm pretty dang picky about that kinda thing ::) ) And the soundtrack... !!! I really hope you use that mix in the movies. Gave me freakin' shivers!

I may be ranting, but I take my hat off to you, sir. You have far surpassed my expectations.

the music is actually parts of original "Predator 2 " and "AVP" soundtrack, mixed by me, BUT !!! the soundtrack for AVP-Redemption is being composed from the scratch as i type :) i heard some samples and its AAA freaking mazing :)  i have 2 super talented composers  agreed to write it for free !!!  its in best tradition of the franchise :) last night i've sent first 3 minute clip for the composer in Itally to write interactive track meaning it will change according to the visuals. :)  another news, i've just finished texturing Predator's ship , will post new pictures in my gallery  :)

The Aliens have to die yeah, but I really wanted to see the Predator get knocked around and have to use his healing charge a lot. Otherwise you just end up with bais 'battles' instead of 'fights'. Are all the encounters like your clip?

Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: alexpj19 on Apr 28, 2008, 01:49:28 AM
I'd say  yes and no, fights are fast and short, i have 5 aliens in 1 fight scene all of them dieit involves slicing, stabbing, kicking, punching... u get the idea.he gets hit a few times, but dominates most of the fight, i have only half of the fight filmed, and after your comments i'm thinking of adding a few more hits by aliens. its kind of challenging, couse my aliens are CG, so i'm kind of limited in what i can do :(   I think the fight scene will turn out very cool and entertaining.  :)

now very important question for you guys, im trying to deside should predator Live or Die ?
please let me know what you think, i have both scenarios in mind, now i need to chose one :)

About the Predator, I wouldn't mind seeing it survive the movie because we've never actually seen that before. You know, come out of the 'final fight' (if there is one) holding the skull of his enemy.

Post by: alexpj19 on Apr 30, 2008, 01:11:45 AM
yes, script and storyboards are done, and 70 % of the film is already shot, now i decided to extend the storyline by adding a whole new opening with new characters and changing the end a little bit. Post production is what takes the most time, couse all of the environment is CG.

I love the new aliens so much, but I keep getting the feeling you got the model somewhere...

But still, great coloring and whatnot. How did you replace the old ones with the new one?
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: alexpj19 on May 18, 2008, 08:06:16 PM
I didnt do the Alien model, i wish i would be that good in 3D, i can do the Hard surface invironments  but not organic stuff like that. so all of the credit for the Alien model goes to " Swidhelm " he is the one responsible for this work of art :) , but i am doing all of animation , rendering, compositing and so on. i had only a few scenes animated with the "OLD" model, that was less realistic adn detailed, but now i can really get the camera up close to his face for some shots.

Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: alexpj19 on May 19, 2008, 07:32:42 AM
well all the physics in animation will be hand animated :)  if you were refering to the problem of aliens flying away in the teaser, it was just a test, and i didnt really care about the accuracy of animation, but for the final shots i'm working hard on making animation as real as i can :)

the screen shot did turn out a bit dark, but i'll do some more color correction in the final edit, i have a really cool zoom and pan on this shot, so even with it being dark it looks good when its moving, as far as the background goes, i've just learn the 3D program 3 month ago , so i'm doing what i can :)
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: Alienseseses on Jun 02, 2008, 01:02:05 AM
I think it would look cooler if the angle was more interesting... I don't know, but it doesn't look that interesting in front of the background like that.
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: alexpj19 on Jun 02, 2008, 02:23:50 AM
I agree on a the camera angle in case if its a single frame, but in this shot, i have a quick zoom from wider angle and "dutch tilt" move with slow pan to the right.  :) it looks good, oh plus its a slow motion shot :) Plus the scene has bunch of other angles, in the edit.

Its not that its bad or something, the modeling is great, but use better textures and better lighting, cast more shadows and use bump maps, it can do wonders.

Just an advice from a fellow 3d user  ;)

But they f**ked it up.
It was boring and horribly edited.
They thought when you wiggle arround with the camera a bit and put in sound fx that doesnt match the scene you would actually believe there is something going on.

Yes, it had potential to be the best fanfilm out there, but it turned out to be the worst i have ever seen.
The suits were good, but again, horribly filmed.
The visual effects were standard "After Effects" effects that are already as a pattern in the program.

The little tests and scenes we have seen from this already looks better then everything in S.E.E.D

For one thing, the camera doesn't matter. Secondly, it doesn't need to be high production value. Third, of course it needs suspense. Otherwise it isn't horror.

Horror doesn't mean high quality blood, it means a good scare, and for that you need suspense.

1, Ijust finished putting all final sound FX in the trailer, and its 100% finished !!!

2, You might have to wait few more days before you see it, "Corporal Hicks" proposed a cool idea to do an exclusive premiere of the trailer on AVPGALAXY before i post it on youtube. so it might take a few days for them to set it all up so you can could see it.  :)

First off Alex you did a great job with this movie!

2nd I love when a talented person comes along and does a fan film on AVP. Movies like SEED and now this one, goes to show all the idiots at Fox and all the retarded directors like the Strause Brothers that you can make a very good AVP film with a small budget. No excuses! A fan just proved it with REDEMPTION.

3rd Thank you for standing up for us, at least now we know someone talented out there cares about what the fans want.

Sweet!!!, glad you guys like it, i showed all of your comments to the guys  ( the one that had to wear the costume for 12 hours in 2 days of shooting, and my other friend that supports me in my crazy ideas, and helps me to set up on the shoots and moving lights and so on, and now he is actually putting some props together for the human scenes)  now they are super excited to continue endure all of my abuses :)
next weekends we are starting to shoot scenes with the humans. will be more screen posted with new characters :)   And yes i am a big fan ,  and im trying to make a film to make any fan happy, including myself  ;D     its kind of going slow couse im doing all of postproduction alone, but very steady, about 1 shot a day, and i think it will worth your wait.  thanks alot for your support.

Amazing stuff man. It's nice to finally look forward to another movie and know that it won't suck ass. You should be very proud of yourself. ;)

I hate to lower the mood, but it's gonna be painful watching Aliens getting swatted here, there and everywhere. If the Aliens managed to critically injure him and that he would need to resort to healing himself, I would be totally happy. I like the feeling of watching a fight and thinking "He's gonna die. Oh no, he's gonna die. Oh he's definitely dead. Oh nice one! He's gonna die now! Oh wait..." etc etc.

I have to say, and as far as movies go, it looks pretty cheesy.  But for a "fan film"  with not a huge budjet, it looks alright.  I don't mean any disrespect, I personally have not seen any other fan films accept for Alien versus Predator versus Batman.  That was actually okay in my opinion.

I'm not saying it's crap or anything.  It lppks good.  Just compared to some of the other fan films out there, let's just say I will have to see the polished full draft before rating it.  That's all. 8)

Just saw the new trailer for this thing


NO ONE CAN DO THIS TRAILER JUSTICE WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT IT.

It is by far the best thing I have ever seen come out of anything that is within the aliens vs predator universe. This is, to me...how it should have been from the beginning. When this film comes out and we can all actually criticize it properly, then I hope to whatever universal power is out there, that it is better than what I have just seen, and if it, for the love of all that is right, go and get into the movie business, because to me this is not even a fan trailer, it's beyond that.

hope the pred gets some trouble with the aliens, a few dead preds could look good indeed, but since its a renegade pred its kinda hard to involve more i guess...

possibly some abandoned pred ship docked in the human (?) ship and some pred corpses :D

I like it. To be honest, the whole thing has that fake "Video game" feel, because of the CG, but it honestly looks like it is working.
My advice- for fights, claustrophobic halls don't work because it is limiting, and it is unlikely you animated the thrown aliens getting bounced off the walls in realistic fashion. Open spaces are better for fights of scale.

Post by: alexpj19 on Jun 12, 2008, 04:35:32 AM
wow, i got overwellmed by comments, questions and suggestions !!!   thats awesome!!!

so here some more info :

_Yes, there will be more than one predator (not necessary dead though) .
_Yes, there will be facehuggers, (some of them face hugging)   :)
_Yes i agree on CG environment, its far fro top otch, but im just learning, so if there are any short cuts, i take them   :)   hopefully it will get better 
_Predator - Queen fight, will be awesome but short :( sorry to many technical challenges, but i promise it will be entertaining.
_Will predator survive?  at this point i have 2 endings in works, so im not sure, but if he will , i really want to make last few shots mind blowing, or if not than atleast cool.
_Predator or Alien fan?  well i'de say im more Predator fan, but i also LOVE aliens :)
_Predator kicking to much alien ass to easy .... hmmm ...  im seriously took it in consideration, and re choriographing a few fights :)   
_Humans.... yes there will be humans "not marines" how ever, there will be shooting and dismembering   :o  ohh and hopefully a few scares 
_Cast, unfortunately no professional actors will be there (mostly my friends), BUT i'll be very peecky about thair preformance , and i have very spacific directions for thair acting :)  i think it will go well.
_Horror.... I know there is not much horror in Aliens anymore, just because we all watched the "Alen" movies like a thousand times and everyone is familiar with a creatures. but there are more ways to create a suspense and scare with such a well known characters, i'll try my best to do that. 
_"Sulaco" i always thought it wold be cool if some renegate predator will discover abandoned "Sulaco" in space and aliens will be on it  :)  , but through the story i'll try logically explain aliens on it. 
_Length of final film estimated 20-25 minutes.
_release date...... hmmmm.... not sure, but aim for the Fall
_Music score will be all original.
_there will be more clips with Behind the scenes , on my website and on avpgalaxy   :)
_as for the budget its "none" however, i've spent about $500 so far, its including the cost of making a predator costume few years ago for halloween :) its all cardboard and ducktape. cost of paint, some little props, materials and so on its $20 there or there.
_editing and compositing all done at home on my PC, using after effects and Premiere in my free time, which is usually from 8pm to 3am :) as you can see i don't get much sleep...WHO CARES!!!! i'm making AVP movie !!!! Tough it up Alex!!!  "Slap..Slap" 


alright i think it should cover most of the comments :)
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: Alienseseses on Jun 12, 2008, 01:36:07 PM
You know, there really is a lot of horror you can get out of alien still. And it isn't all tied to how it looks. If there are characters you care about, you can send them into a place that may or may not have aliens... Just the fact that the aliens can take someone out of nowhere is scary.

And here's an idea. Let's say there's a character who might have been facehugged, but you don't know, and everybody splits up and we lose track of the person. Later, somebody finds that person's body, realizes what happened and an alien attacks from behind.

Post by: Alienseseses on Jun 12, 2008, 01:48:36 PM
Basically, if you want to get horror out of an alien, you need to use at least two factors.
1) We have no idea where they came from
2) It isn't the creature that scares us but what it can do.
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: xenomorph36 on Jun 12, 2008, 02:02:23 PM
as i posted earlier on the main page, i think it's a fantastic film!

i like the way you made the aliens the way aliens should really look. As for the graphics , i think it's really good considering you've only learned this for a month. i'm majoring animation and i hope i will learn and be as good as you when i become 3rd year student.

Good job and you should use this as a portfolio just to show off how talented you are. I'm sure lots of companies such as feature film, game industry and etc will look into ur work and get u a job  :)


on a side note , i really liked the visuals, as for the story (which i havent seen , and is too early to judge) it seems kinda shallow and not very creative. However i'm judging you are a 3d artist so i guess story isnt very important anyway so dont worry about my last comment.  ;)

1) That doesn't matter, we know exactly how Kane's Son got on the Nostromo, but he was and still is one creepy bastard.
2) The creature is what causes the scares. As soon as it appears on the screen, you know whoever's in that area is f*cked. (Or at least thats how it should feel) What the creature does is usually just for gore 'n' grittiness purposes.

1) I didn't mean that. I mean that the creature came from a huge abyss in space, and who knows which planet it came from. The fact is, it can be anywhere.
2) You also missed my point here. The alien is scary, sure, but not because of how it looks. Maybe in the first one, but we know what it looks like by now. What is scary about it is that it can kill you, regardless of how intimate we know it. It can destroy people in many ways, and not just physically. If the movie is just the alien standing there hissing, it isn't scary. But if the movie shows the aliens killing indiscriminately and nothing else, it chills.

Post by: alexpj19 on Jun 12, 2008, 07:11:50 PM
yes!!! new weapons for sure, its one of my favorite part of all predator movies, new gadgets :) 
comment on the story line, i thinks its way more important than visuals, but in my case besides the story im really focused on the visuals, when its low budget you always trying to make it look big. so thats what im trying to do, but i think when you see a third trailer you'll kind of see what the story will be about. and one more thing , its a short film, and its hard to tell a complex story, so my story is simple, but has a twists and few nasty surprises. Plus the way it will be told will make it entartaining. oh and by the way last night i improved a Queen, by adding more little details, dints and wrinkles on the skin. it looks good, im gonna post a new still in my gallery
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: Alienseseses on Jun 12, 2008, 07:21:16 PM
That's cool...

But I also think that the things to be improved are:
1) lighting (very dark)
2) pred face- It looks kinda fake
3) Alien weight. These things may be fast, but they still have mass and shouldn't float so much.

I saw the trailor, it looks incredable. I may have liked AvP-R but compared to your new upcoming film. in my opinion, this is Way better then the two AvP movies fox has made. this just goes to show that Fans know way more then what the directors and company knows. although its a fan film. when I saw the trailor it confused me for an actual film. I'm glad to see your not using the Alien: Resurrection body design. its nice to see some originality to the creature. three films with the terrible Res design is bad enough. but your use of a diffrent design is incredable. I have some questions myself...

1. what types of Aliens will you be using in this film. I know the queen is in it, but what about the other types. like Warriors (ridged boney skulls) or Drones (the original Dome head)? or both?

2. I know we all been dissappointed with the Predalien in AvP-R, and I know its unlikely, but when you stated there will be other Predators then the lead charactor, does this mean there is a possibility of a Predalien? if so, what design would you use? I'll give you a design I made if you like. I'm sorry to bring up the predalien idea, but I had to ask.

3. does the Predator have a name that you refer it to, although its not uttered in the film. (e.g. Celtic, Scar, City Hunter, Wolf... etc)

4. in your film, will there be enviroments on the ship be refrenced from ALIENS? like the Cryo chamber, Mess Hall, Dropship bay, and the acid burn on the floor from the facehugger in the opening from ALIEN3?

5. when you asked about what launguage the Predator should speak, try a derelict language that exists. or, make a totaly new language up. I would salvage the Cybertronian Launguage from the 2007 Transformers movie and derive a language from it. I can help you if you like.

and finaly...

6. please tell me you will release a DVD. although how you could get it out to the guy or gal who wants it is beyond me.

thats about it.

Aliens, Deffenetly rigged skull design, very bug like , always loved it, its just more dangerous looking.
No Predalien in this one, but i will have facehuggers and eggs.
Predators name.......hmmm,  on the set i call him ...Scott....  sorry no name for the predator.  :)
Environments, i was thinking to make a loading dock with some loaders standing around, possibly a dropship,  not sure if i'll do it yet.
As for sound of Predators native language, i've done some tests, and i'm kind of liking the direction im going, still need some fork.
Final product will be available for the download on my website or maybe here on avpgalaxy. free for all, dont know about DVD yet.

Post by: TITANOSAUR on Jun 13, 2008, 08:30:43 AM
ok, maybe if you deside to make a film with a Predalien you give me a call, Yes?

what about the Alien's screems? will you be using the screem of the Peakock/Elephant screem used in ALIENS?

Hey alex just wanted to make some suggestion :

1) Predator communication  - use their clicking voice combined with hand mimics - they used that in all predator movies (including AVP movies)

2) About ending - i dont know make him survive, and after going through all that carnage - he restored his honor. BUT...... after returning to his planet he is captured by some space marines or special squad or his elder is not satisfied with his successes and wants to banish him again. Now Scot....khmm... i mean zour predator is pissed out and challenges elder and then - FINISH. I really think that a ending should be cliffhanger, and its very possible in your case.

Anyway love the work so far, keep it going...
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: alexpj19 on Jun 13, 2008, 04:57:19 PM

A bump map is a map that is being used in a 3D program for bumpiness (On alien skin for example) and exaltation.
It interacts with the light and makes for a more realistic look, especially on skin and stuff.

The problem with the eyes there is that they have no reflection, that makes them look too dry.

I downloaded the same head and i solved the problem with a "hypernurbs" object.
Its a shape modifyer that gives the selected object more polygons and makes it a lot smooter and more organic.
He has to look for something like that in maya or whatever program he uses.

Otherwise he did a pretty good job on the head.

Hey guys, any ideas for Predators name in "Redemption"  ???  what do u think about "Dagger" or "Scorpion",  any ways, im open for ideas.  Also i was thinking today and came up with the idea of maybe start developing 2 prequels stories for AVP-Redemption. one is about Predator only, about how he got kicked out of his clan in to excile, and another one about "Sulaco" right after "Aliens" so its gonna be only "Alien" short, no predator, and "Redemption will connect 2 prequels together.

Well, there's only one Predator no real need for a name, but if your going to give one. Make it part of the charater not an add on.
Second an all Alien prequal awesome.

Post by: War Wager on Jun 18, 2008, 04:41:08 PM
I'm not really fond of naming either, but if you have too, name him based on his physical appearence/something he does to an Alien etc.

I've always thought 'Jaguar' would be a good name for a Predator.

I like my idea:  "Rogue", but Scot should be changed.  Sorry guys, just sn't doing it for me. ;).  Reminds me too much of that dork from X-Men.  He was the sissy boy, and for that I don't want that "bad-ass" Pred to be acociated with such a name.  Rogue suits him; reguarding the trailer, how it states that he is looking to "re-gain" his honor.  He must have done something terrible.  "Rogue matches that description perfectly. ;)

http://io9.com/5017454/only-you-can-redeem-alien-versus-predator

he two Alien Vs. Predator movies came and went without offering much more than a few moments of Predator-human bonding. Fans were outraged at Fox for fouling up one of the easiest plots ever: all they had to do was let the two species fight each other, but instead there was a whole lotta' nothing. But now the fans have taken matters into their own hands and created their own film: Alien Vs. Predator: Redemption. The zero budget movie follows an exiled Predator regaining his honor in the middle of an Alien/Predator war. Click through to see how Alien Vs. Predator should have looked.

According to the film's production blog,"It's a 'No Budget' fan film project created with a purpose to appreciate the 2 Best Sci-Fi franchises." They have hopes to see this movie finished this fall. From the collected FX shots and other spliced-together scenes I'm just happy you can see what going on (unlike in the murky AVP2). Bring on the real grudge match between these two alien species — it can't be any worse than the official film.

You got it. ;).  That is exactly what I meant.  I'm glad you remembered that when making the film.  Now, I look even more forward to the finalisation of the film.  This will turn out great.

We all know whats gonna happen. ^ They're gonna go "Hey, the fans really dig this. Heres a thought, mabye if we make AvP3 like this... people will actually like it and we'll get more money!!" *GASP*

One little question though, will there be any rock/rap music in the movie itself? The trailers had these and it put me off a little. One thing I don't want to see is Aliens and Predators fighting along to rock music. :-X

Everything looks great so far, but i dont buy this whole FOX thing.

Why would they care to comment about a fanflick someone made on the internet?
They dont care about the fans anyway, so why care about a fanfilm and say that he did a great job?
They cant be that dumb.

Fox might not care about the fans, but they do so love shitcanning fan projects. Game mods, games, fan films - At some point or another Fox has issued cease and desists telling fans to go nick off.

well, one of my friends, has a contact at Fox, and he contacted them to make sure they gonna let me finish the project, and let it be shown at some short films festivals in Europe, we sent them the trailer, and response was "it looked awesome, its all cool if we not making any money, and doing it only for the perpuse of entertainment of the fan and will put a huge disclaimer about intelectual property of fox and so on, so mow we are waiting for the official final response to give me a green light on finishing this project. thats all. :) dont get me wrong its not like the want to buy the idea or market it in any way or anything like that. its just every one says ...ohh its gonna get Foxed, well hopefully they'll say "its cool as long you dont make any money off us" which i never planned on the first place, im just super excited about making my own AVP short.

Its just that, in this fansection, there is really a lot of BS going arround and i´m a little sceptical now.

Hell, we even had a whole fanfilm going on for months that turned out to be a fake.

So keep it cool, i´m still very thankful that you gave me the link to the Alien model and i just found a queen, eggs, sulaco, dropship, APC etc etc

Do you think it would be possible, IF your film is a smash hit, that Fox could deside to let you run it in sections to make some cash off it?  I mean, I would want some "green" feedback for all my hard worw, like you have done here.  Do you htink Fox would be willing to make a deal, reguarding this idea?  Have you even thought about making money off this deal?


@ Corperal Hicks,

I personally have not heard the term "Foxed".  Can someone tel me the history behind it?  I think it would have to do with something along the lines of filing lawsiutes, but I could be wrong.

Yeah, they did the cease and desist thing to me. All I did was post a few pictures of that stolen alien suit. And Fox didn't even have copyright over the pictures.

I don't want to join the witchhunt but you probably shouldn't have contacted Fox. Well, it's not like you can hide it from them, because the fan film is becoming pretty popular. Just don't get your hopes up. Fox have shut fan projects down for far less than what you've done so far.

That's what I did in my recent fan film, I had chest bursting but I didn't show it all in one sequence. I wanted to let the audience know what was going on but not let them see. ;)

@ alex,

  I have a better/faster/cooler forum than my last one.  Freewebs was too slow.  I was wondering if you would like to advertise your story there aswell.  That way, your popularity could grow even more!  I can't wait for the film to deput, but in the mean time, you could let my members know about it.

Whatever you decide to do, thanks dude.

So, based on that I love Aliens more, heres what we know of the Xeno's in AvPR:

- 4 - 5 on screen Aliens plus the Queen
- Eggs will make a welcome return
- No Burstings
- No PredAlien or other Alien types
- Facehuggers are bring transported on a human ship
- They will land some hits on the Predator

Alex, please conform that the last one is true for certain. *crosses fingers* :)

yes all sounds correct, predator will be getting a few scratches :)   also the main location is "Sulaco" there will be 5 human characters  one of them will be female, no androids. there will be a few surprising twists and a gliimps of the Predator's world  ( different from AVP2, the way i would like to see it )   ;)

Predator scanning something on his computer

Predator knocking facehugger tube (fantastic)

And finally when predators spear hits the dude (excellent composed)

So far A+

Wait, just realized... When he gets speared, why does blood keep spurting? Wouldn't there be blood for a second but then it would be sealed by the spear?

Because it probably looks better, simple as that.

I havent seen it yet though, because it wont play for me.

It might work some other ways, but in the video it looks like a sprinkler of blood facing down turned sideways on the computer.
I think the spear is good enough.

maybe the guy moved a bit when he was impaled, opening a wound not sealed by the spear, alowing blood to escape at hight pressure

The blood, make it darker and increase the motion blur when it sprays.

I think that if you take the muzzle flashes and make them brighter, maybe make the whole area brighter when it fires, you get something really cool.

Post by: Stalker on Jul 30, 2008, 03:58:50 PM
I'm very impressed with how cinematic & professional the trailer looks, great work.

But for the second time, get rid of the hip-hop music at the end. This is just my personal recommendation, as I think it's tacky & detracts from what is otherwise great...not to mention it gives me horrible flashbacks of Godzilla '98, since I'm pretty sure that was the song that played during the end credits.
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film

guys, the scenes with the human are not final, and for music  i used the same soundtrack cause i didn't have time to put a new one together, i needed 2nd trailer for the Sci-Fi convension in Norway asap, if i wanted to be shown infron of bunch of people on the big screen, so i had to do it fast :) and once it was done, thought you all might want to see it too .  shooting scenes will be fixed, and there will be now rap in the film, only havy, moody, spooky, awesome mix between predator and aliens  soundtrack, all original written from scratch.

Must say what i have seen so far is truly amazing for someone who is running with no budget.
i agree when they say that this will probably be better then requiem in regards to IT ACTUALLY HAS A STORY!!! erm hem yes anyway...get a little carried away... just one question tho... please tell me its not what i think it is. in the trailer at 1:15 just after we see the soldier impaled, we see the pred either sitting or kneeling, that looks suspicious... he's not about to get chest busted is he? PLEASE DO NOT LET THIS END LIKE IT DID FOR SCAR! seriously 2 preds already dead and not even 5 minutes later the last is face hugged i mean COME ON can you be more biased???? Erm hem sorry got a little carried away again, yes well that's my 2 cents, yes moving on...

hey man no worries, no predators will get chest busted, how ever , face huggers will try to hug them !!!  :)  there are some things i liked and disliked about both AVP movies, so im kind of trying to go by my own senses of what will be good  for this film  but i also take every suggestion in consideration :)

It's not biased unless the Predator is another Wolf, i.e. God.

Well so far we've assumed it's only one predator, & that's what the trailers have indicated...but Alex just referred to "predators", & "them", so we might see more than one in the film after all.

The reason I used the word "Biased" is directly because of Anderson. OK i know we've all heard the slandering against him, but seriously, has anyone here watched AVP with commentry, Paul W.S Anderson himself declares himself the "Gate Keeper" of the Alien Quadrilodgy, all he talks about the whole film is how he wanted to get the movie to match the environment that best showed of the best sides of the Aliens. OK I'm done with slandering Anderson because we have all seen enough of that.
But in the end if you really want satisfied Fans, you cant do a real Verses Movies without declaring one side the victor, and when that happens an uproar from the fans of the other speicies will occur. there can usually only be Predator or Alien films, or Predator with Aliens in it. once again theres my 2 cents down

now please take note i am not a hater, I'm not here to just slander just so were clear so please don't start throwing rotten food at me I'm on your side...

I don't see how this film relates to Paul Anderson at all. AVP was biased...but so was the Strauses' sequel.

Neither of them are related to Redemption anyway. It's Alex's own film.

Anderson never called himself the 'Gatekeeper', thats what he called Henrickson since he's the second most featured actor in the series besides Weaver.

You're right, in a Vs flick were there is no winner, just like Freddy vs Jason and AvPR done to some extent, both sets of fans won't need to quarel (as much) You could argue that the Aliens won in AvP but it's still hardly a victory.

I'm all for the Predator walking out the victor, but it would be nice to see the Aliens kill off the Predator too. In this situation on the abandoned Sulaco, either side can win, theres no continuity errors to worry about.

well as far as the movements go i really like Predator 2 and AVPR the way predator were moving but there are some moves of course i had to just come up with and just think how predator would move in certain situation thats it. Oh by the way im think king to include a little scene when predator is healing himself.  :)  i know some people asked me about it.

Post by: alexpj19 on Sep 30, 2008, 06:43:54 PM
well , my main focus is on post production, putting all of CG and life footage together. as for how far in to filming the live action footage? for the first release which will happen in the end of this year im about 80% done :)   for the extended cut which will be released some time next year that will have all new opening, human storyline, new ending and Predator's home world, i have only 50% done :)  ohh. yeah as you just figured out there will be a 2 versions of this film  extended will be almost 40% longer than the short one :)

I just caught up on this project, but I wanted to say that it is really looking great. The amount you have done with so little as great. I myself am looking into possibly making fan-films, and this serves as real inspiration.

I would really like to see more of the Aliens, they look really good.

If anything, I would deepen and darken the colors of the Pred's face, it comes out too light in CGI form. But wow is the way you directed his motions great.

Dont fall into the same flaws with fights that Reqium did, as in making the aliens look too much like pushovers..even if you are more of a predator fan it would seem more intense if they seemed more dangerous.

As for humans, Im curious to see how it shapes up. Oh, for Blood, you probably know this but Ill say just in case. You can use Syrup with red food dye and a little blue. It looks pretty decent, here's some in action I made: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Yv6-79DucrQ (Jump to around the 2:20 mark)

Anyways, I really cant wait! Any previews of one of the fights?

Yes it was. I can't imagine how hard it would be to create a complete film, WITHOUT a budget, and all done by computers in any less time.  Alex is hard at work, we just need to be patient.  Plus, the suspence will grow and grow and grow, for when the film does come out, it will be AMAZING.  ;)

Or everyone will be overhyped and when they see the 15 minutes they will be disappointed.

Quoteand all done by computers in any less time.
I'm not saying anything against the work he does neither do i say it is anywhere near easy creating such stuff, but 15 - 20 minutes of footage and working almost a year on it now is not very fast.

I can remember the hype for 'AvPR' was almost unbearable and the BS's enthusiasm for it was contagious. We shouldn't jump to the conclusion that it's automatically going to be great, I done that last year and I paid the price.

I did say multiple times that i like the stuff he's doing and that i look forward to it and its true, he has done an amazing job so far.

BUT, i do see this as what it is, a fanflick, and of course his costume does not look as good as something that has been done by professional artists, hence why i said i like wolfs design better  ;)

QuoteI just want support here.
I do give my support, but critic is something that is needed and just makes this thing better in the end.
Why say that everything is perfect when it isn't? The first shots that he did didn't looked so great and they have improved because someone always said what he can do better, and he did. I told him to use the bump maps properly, and he did now, its part of the progress.
I'm still thankfull that Alex gave me the link to the alien model some time back and that i had the chance to work on something that great in my own freetime, so god knows i love this guy ! :)

by the way, i remember in an interview that you said that you are having some one compose an original score for the film. are you planning the film's score to reference the AVP and AVPR films' scores, or the predator and alien films' scores? or both?

It is. Will you be making any other posters closer to the release Alex? Since you've got different Alien designs I thought they would be used for new ones.

Well, a tagline I did for an AvP3 teaser was 'It Began In Our World... It Will End In Theirs'. You're free to play around with that if you want.

Unless you're not wanting any connection to the movies.

Hey Alex,

I noticed people were making some fan made posters/wallpapers.  Well, I thought I would give it a go.  Below are three options, one of them will have a color change aswell, so you can see what I mean when I say "You can choose to have the colors changed.".  Hope you like them...

(I will be adding more later.  You can see them before they are posted here on Spectrum's Fan Art Gallery: HERE: http://www.avpspectrum.webs.com/apps/photos/ (http://www.avpspectrum.webs.com/apps/photos/) (Spectrum's gallery)

I quite like that last one Chris, although the Alien stands out a bit much.

Heres some more taglines:

- The Silence Of Space Will Be Broken...

- For Honour To Be Restored... Death Must Be Vanquished

- The Hunter Will Become The Hunted...

I quite like that last one Chris, although the Alien stands out a bit much.

Heres some more taglines:

- The Silence Of Space Will Be Broken...

- For Honour To Be Restored... Death Must Be Vanquished

- The Hunter Will Become The Hunted...

Thanks, I thought the Alien did. I should have faded it out a bit more.

Those are nice tag-lines. I really like the second one.  ;)
DO you think red? Or green would be a better color to use?

:D Okay, I thought it looked good like that too.  I am thinking of making a HUGE wallpaper of the film, but it will be like a "cut through" where you would have shots of the Pred on one, and the Aliens on the other with the scenes in the middle.  It will be BIG, so it will take a while, what do you think?  Should I make it all red?
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film

Nah, have varying colours b/c all red will make it seem a bit boring. Nothing too eye-catching about one single colour on a big picture IMO.

I think so too. I was gonna have the Alien side green, and the Pred- red, but I thought it would look more like a Christmas scene.

it doesn't bother me much at all, plus they were talking about the teaser with bunch of test shots in it, but i know when the film is out they'll be downloading it and telling all their friends about it. i guess some people just like to bitch about everything and not appreciate the amount of work people put on to it.

Thanks so much Alex, glad to hear from you. 

@ That rediculous idea of a critics list I just watched, I must say I am disgussted.  I read through them all, and I guess they are talking out their asses becuase they don't have any concept of what real, hard work is.  They probably are 40 years old, living at home with their mommies eating fudge-pops in their basement typing up these (what I don't call) reviews.  I would love to post a comment on that blog telling them all to go F***K themselves, and really tear down all of their self-esteim, BUT I don't want to be a part of some piece of shit community that don't understand positivity. 

I am glad to see you are being the bigger man here Alex, and not letting their comments get to you.  I am the same way with stuff I do.  UNLESS they insult my family, then their ass is mine. haha, but when it comes to online crap there really isn't much you can do.  :-\

I am sorry they had to be such retards and put down your amazing hard work, but like you said "when the film is out they'll be downloading it and telling all their friends about it." I agree.

Anyways, that's all I have to say.  I am sad that people have to act like a bunch of arss holes when there is no call for it.

@ The posters I did,

I can't wait for the new screens.  I am planning to make an even LARGER one (If that is possible...haha :D) but with a few suggestions from War Wager. (Ship in the background....less creature shots...make it look more enthusiastic) <<<- Did I spell that right?  ;D  But yeah, you can expect a real kick ass poster in the works as we speak.  Good luck with the rest of the film, and I hope your Christmas was awsome, aswell as your new year. 2009!!!! people!  That means:
1- Jurassic Park 4 (so I heard)
2- Terminator 4- Salvation. (Confirmed)
3-  Transformers 2 (So I heard).

2009 is to be a Sci-Fi year!  Along with ALIENS: CM if they hurry up, and ALIEN RPG!!!!!!  ;D

Good luck Alex,, keep up the awsome work.  ;)

Post by: Chris P on Jan 02, 2009, 09:10:51 PM
Okay, I don't know about you but I am really excited for Alex Popov's fan film: AVP Redemption, so now I am gonna be making signatures for people with the AVP Redemption logo and advertisement on them. 

You can either order them here, or choose some of the ones listed below:

Here's what to do when you like one listed:
(Assuming you use Photobucket.com)

1-  Save the picture to your drive (doesn't matter)
2- Create an account on Photobucket. (If you already have one, just continue)...
3-  Go to upload files...
4-  Choose the pic you saved.
5-  Once uploaded, click edit.  From there you can change the color, put your username on it, and any comments you want.

I find advertising is a good way to show your appreciation for someone else's work.  I am advertising the film with my sig., if you want to aswell, I encourage you to.

- Thanks.  ;)

List:

I can see your point but in what way does a sig support the movie? I think everyone here on AvPGalaxy knows about the movie now and a Sig doesn't make the movie any better.

What i personally think is you want to make yourself a name and act like your a part of the production with all the Wallpapers and Sig's.

Don't get me wrong, i don't want to Rain on your parade but keep this thread cool with facts about the movie and not advertising for another advertising thread.

That is not it at ALL.  You see, there isn't much I personally can do to "help out".  So I figured since I am fairly good at making images, that I could contribute in that department.

I don't want to "make myself a name", I have one, and it's Chris.  I don't need people to know who I am I frankly don't really care that much whether this person knows me or this person knows me. What I do care about is how people precieve me. (Not what they think, but how I am treated). 

Here is the thing,

I stumbled upon this thread when browsing before and previously the only AVP fan films I ever heard of were Batman: Dead End, and pretty bad action figure films.  When I saw this one I thought WOW!  So, when something deserves recognition, I try to do my best to help recognise it.  I don't want to "act like I am part of the production", because I am NOT in any way. 

Is it so wrong to support someone's hard work?  I made the sigs because they stand for something, knowing about it is one thing, showing your appreciation for it is another.  I'm a walker, not a talker.  ;)

Just to clarify, cause I don't want people getting that impression of me.  8) - Thanks Johnny.

@ Alex,

If you thought I was trying to do what Johnny said I was, you got me wrong.  I just want to have fun, and help.  I think the film rocks, and sinse one dude posted some posters, I thought I should try a couple myself.  No harm intended and the sigs are more of a symbol of appreciation than an advertisement.

I would, but the thread is really for information.  The posters there were getting a little out of hand and I think addinga whole stack of sigs would put a few people off.  :-\  It happens, so I just wanted to make this thread for this purpose.  For people who want to show off their artistic works.

That's all.  It's not like I am wasitng space.  ;)

Thanks Corporal.  I can't wait for that news post either.  ;D  News hasn't been all that common lately has it.  :-\  I hope Alien 5 or P3 or AVP3 raise their head soon.  ::)....wait, no.  Not AVP3.  :D

Not me, I would much rather see an ALIEN 5 preview or a Predator 3 preview to an AVP 3 one.  Plus, Redemption should be great, all things considerred.  ;)

AVP 3 is bound to happen though, the way Requiem left off and even the Strause brothers stated so.

@ Alex,

I was just thinking of this (not sure if it's been asked already) but " what inspired you to make the film?"

Was it the fact that the A/P fans needed a "good" film instead of the "FOX-published" ones?  :D

OR...

Did you just want to do it for fun?

What was it?  I was just curious today.  ;D

AvPGalaxy - Can you tell us a little of the origin of the project? Where did you get the idea to do a green-screen movie?

Alex Popov – It all began when I saw "Batman Dead End". I decided I wanted to make my own Predator fan film. The next step was making the costume. I did some research on the web about how to make cheap armor and decided to go with cardboard and duck tape. It took me about 2 month to make it and about $200. Lucky for me I finished right in time for Halloween. In 2 days I won about $800 in cash prizes. Eventually I started to think about some storylines and did some test shots. My first test called "Alex Versus Predator", you can find it on YouTube.

Originally I wanted to do all real environments. Maybe in the woods or some construction site, but after a few month playing with Maya 3D and poser I figured I just might give it a try with a green screen. I bought a few pieces of green fabric and scratched it across the hall at work on the weekends and did a few tests. It looked pretty good. After that decided to go with a green screen. So all the scenes on the green screen are shot in the hall way. However some of my friends recently purchased big space in another building and for helping them paint it blue they gonna let me shoot it there. Its much bigger. All the walls and floor will be painted blue. So from now on I'm shooting there.

Er......don't you mean lack of :o :o :o

Uh..hem....On another note...most poses are somewhat reminiscent of Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man.

And the last spinning Predator head shot reminded me of the scene from Blade Runner. When Decker was viewing the security tape with Brian. And afterwards Roy Batty's head was spinning around as were the other replicants earlier ;)

Over all I really like the presentation of the figures ;D

Exactly.
The other pics and videos look great because there is always a real Element in there, which is the Predator or a human character. It feels right.
The pic above looks like its out of the AvP2 videogame, there is no film feeling to it.
Of course hes doing a great job on this, but that doesn't mean i have to like everything and when i think that something doesn't look good then i will say it, simple as that.

i did this shot last night, im not 100% happy with it yet, partially agree with John, i think its the camera angle makes it look 2D, i might change it, but for now it will work, its a short shot more like establishing where they at, the alien just runs out of the corridor in to a big Loading Dock. thats the idea.

 Hi Alex  :)

With this year being the 30th anniversary of the 1st Alien movie. Have you thought about releasing this at a venue that has a large exposure?

I read that the fan film Batman Dead End premiered at Comic Con. There's also Wizard World?

I'm hoping that there will be some Alien events at these conventions because of the anniversary.

Hopefully that at some time in the future an Alien Convention will happen (when I asked on this forum if there are any Alien conventions..I was told there wasn't enough support  :-[ )

well it has to have some more traits from predator than just the madibles and small portions of the dreds.

I don't have a problem with different coloured Aliens. Afterall, the DogAlien suited it's colour tone brillaintly. I've always seen the PredAlien being differently coloured from the human born ones. I'm not saying black wouldn't suit because it sure as heck would.

The colour is determined by the surroundings, not the host.

Alien - Cold metallic environment, cold metallic colouring.
Aliens - Black with blue highlights everywhere, same colouring.
Alien3 - Orange-brown/copper environment, same colouring on Alien.

Etc.

The only Alien to not follow this was the PredAlien with its yellow.

I remember a pic from an Aliens Alien where you see that its painted black/brown with yellow highlights to catch the light. Tom Woodruff said that when you look at them in broad daylight it looks almost like a halloween costume.

Touche!

But then look at how they look on-film.

Really the Aliens are light colours which lets the surroundings dictate how they look - The Alien in Alien 3 was actually ashen grey for the most part.

The only real exception has been from AR onwards, and Alien, where they were pretty much the colour that they wound up in the film.

as long as he isn't gonna turn out to be a queen and try to use Chet's reproduction method, I'm happy.

I'm actualy gonna consider after seeing the film, wether to make it canon. I'm sure Its an awsome film, but I want to see it first.

Yeah, but hair/fur is there to keep whatever has it warm. Assuming Preds are brought up in hot locations, 'hair' on their head wouldn't be of any use.

Aliens don't take eyes or noses. They don't take ears, either, which are not only sensory organs but help us with balance. They don't take external genitalia, hard-wired as it is into our biology.

Something that would make the Predators live longer would likely have no use to an Alien, which we haven't ever seen reach old age and die.

Scar's dreadlocks were set on fire, and he seemed perfectly fine with the whole thing.

If there were important, no intelligent species would keep them flopping in the open unprotected. They wear armour over their face and body ... yet neglect this seemingly indispensable organ flopping around their head?

There's nothing saying they're tubes either - They don't seem hollow.

At the end of the day there's nothing they could be that would mean an Alien should take them.

Except people don't bother thinking and just say "Well dur it lookz kool".

maybe the dreadlocks are to help the Predator cool its body down. Idk.

I didn't animate the figure in the programme, this is the stage of how you open it.

And there was a reason why i chose a darker look and didn't lit the back of the head but you wanted it spot on so there it is.
That's why i can understand why Alex makes the movie dark, its hard to hide the in-perfections of the 3D figures.

I still think it looks good though. Great design.

Actually, in War, one of the AVP novels, its explained that pred hair actually is like mammal hair. One of their manhood rituals is the excruciatingly painful permanent braiding of the hair, after which it is bound up in the tentacle-ish things that we've always seen, which are evidently some kind of plastic-y material. Very, very EU but it works for me.

Actually, the novels aren't canon, good that it works for you but i go with what we've seen in the movies, which is they don't have hair but tubes running out of their skulls.

Predators with normal hair is even more ridiculous then all the concept art where Predators have tits.

I would call them spikes yes. They are robust, if they would be normal hair they would behave like normal hair (like flopping, or moving because of wind) but they seem to stick where they are even if the Predator moves fast.

There is no indication to not call them spikes.

in every fight im trying to find a balance, if its a long range battle than predator uses weapons and alien dies fast, if its up close fight than predator gets slapped around in it but still wins, cause he needs to get to the queen some how, right. so i hear what all of you are saying and trying to take it in consideration.

@ Alex,

Just don't make it too easy.  Also, keep the "Alien Essense" alive.  The AVP films ruined that.  Aliens are silent, deadly, almost impossible to kill (going by A L I E N), so make it a struggle.  Also, notice how all the Preds die at the end?  Well, maybe you could have him survive, to break away from the trend.

All in all, it's up to you, I would just say to remember the species in how they were "meant" to be, not how the AVP films F***ed them up.  ;)

QuoteI would just say to remember the species in how they were "meant" to be
Then he has to go by the original Predator as well, which is the stalking killing machine that's a bitch to kill and can rip you apart with its bare hands.
The footage he has shown us so far speaks against it already, it looks very AvP´ish with all the code of Honor shit that's going around. I want to see them used as tools again, i don't want to follow him half the movie and see every single motivation that makes him do things.
I want to see the Demon like Predators from the first two movies back, that are almost like ghosts in their appearance, they know where you are and they pop up and you're the hunted.
People always complain about the Aliens portrayed wrong, but so is the Predator.
Quotealmost impossible to kill (going by A L I E N)
That's not a very good example, what did they have to defend themselves? A selfmade flamethrower that when you shot it it caused more damage to the ship then to anything else. All they could do was run away or hide and trying to blast it out of the airlock.
Going by that there is no indication to say that its almost impossible to kill. Neither going by the other movies especially Aliens, which is an Aliens bitchslap fest.

I'd like to think AvP kept the Aliens in their grounds. The Grid fight is pretty accurate on how an Alien would try and kill a Predator. Attacks it up front but when it realises that isn't working, it uses it's enviroment.

As for the Predator, I've never liked this 'honor' thing. If it kills an unarmed foe then I wouldn't think it would really give a toss.

But then again, i don't think it was accurate of how a Predator would fight an Alien.
The only good move was to remove the Aliens tail, that's about it. Otherwise it behaved like a wrestler or exactly what it was, a short couchpotato in a rubber suit. Sometimes like both at the same time.

How else was it going to fight the thing?

Its blades melted off, it had no spear, the net is useless at extreme close range and it had no gun. All it could hope to do was beat the shit out of the thing, which it tried to do in spades.

Unless you wanted it to break out the martial arts ;)

Anything that doesn't look like a wrestler that has overweight is welcome.

QuoteIts blades melted off
And that was a failure to begin with. A species that fights Aliens for thousands of years, that has managed to create space travel technology and has a highly defensive weapon system isn't able to enhance their weapons to make it acid proof? Very unlikely.

Quotethe net is useless at extreme close range
Given the scene where the Predator shoots the net while the Alien is jumping at him in high speed i would say the net works pretty good at close range. there is the scene while they just stand there and the alien is snorting at him, there was enough opportunity to use the net gun.

Quoteit had no spear
It was right next to him sticking in Colin Salmon , all he had to do is to just grab it.

QuoteAll it could hope to do was beat the shit out of the thing, which it tried to do in spades.
And there would be nothing wrong with it when he would at least try to kill it. It was on the ground, he had thick sandales, try to crush the head, rip its inner jaw out while its on the ground, just do something to kill the thing.. but Noooo.

QuoteUnless you wanted it to break out the martial arts
I just wanted it to behave like something that knows what its doing. And there comes the agile problem. Its just standing there letting itself getting fooled by the Aliens tail or even falling to the ground instead of jumping in the air to avoid something like that.
When Predators don't have weapons they become fighters, they punch and use their shattering strength, give the Alien a good swing like the first one did with dutch, let nothing untried to harm the thing, not tackle it or roll on the floor.

The net was the right weapon to use, but like I've said countless times before, Anderson thought it would be so much cooler to have Celtic pose and that's why he lost.

a lot of good points, aliens are not that smart, its pure animal instincts, stock, hide, attack, kill. they are hard to kill if you are a human with no gun (Alien1 & 3)  but if you have long range weapon or 10 times stronger than  average human than its all about how fast and accurate you are. Aliens 2 had piles of alien bodies, specially when they keep coming towards the turrets (not too smart). as for the predators fighting skills they would use weapons and if out of them than it comes to fists, kicks, wrist blades, maybe even using the environments. as for wrestling and rolling on the ground....well... if the alien jumped on you and pinned you to the ground, wrestling skills are helpful i think, to somehow get up or change the position to get on top or something. than nothing wrong with wrestling. that's why its kind of challenging to come out with a good choreography for my fight scenes  :)  as for the hand weapons, yes they should be acid proof.

Oh, yay.

QuoteAliens 2 had piles of alien bodies, specially when they keep coming towards the turrets (not too smart).
Firstly, it wasn't "piles". The confirmed kills are around, what, 30? Of 150? The bodies weren't piling up when they were going for the turrets, because there were still masses of them chasing Ripley and Hicks at the end.

Secondly, running at the turrets is something humans have a long, long history of doing. Yet we also have rocket scientists and neurosurgeons.

They had acid-proof weapons. The wristblades just weren't one of them.

QuoteGiven the scene where the Predator shoots the net while the Alien is jumping at him in high speed i would say the net works pretty good at close range.
Hi, I said extreme close range. As in, Alien grabbing you close range. The net needs space to unfold - At the distance Celtic had with Grid most of the fight, it would've just been a rolled up net punching into the Alien's stomach, and nothing else. Not terribly effective.

Quotethere is the scene while they just stand there and the alien is snorting at him, there was enough opportunity to use the net gun.
Not using the net then was smart. The Alien could've easily dodged - The shoulder cannon fires a faster projectile, and they can dodge that. Hell, they can dodge bullets. The Alien would've seen the net coming from the end of the corridor and, y'know ... stepped to the side.

QuoteIt was right next to him sticking in Colin Salmon , all he had to do is to just grab it.
Grid jumped on him and knocked him away from the spear. From then it was more interested in not getting killed, and then it had the Alien in the net.

QuoteAnd there would be nothing wrong with it when he would at least try to kill it. It was on the ground, he had thick sandales, try to crush the head, rip its inner jaw out while its on the ground, just do something to kill the thing.. but Noooo.
And this is where Anderson giving the Alien the tiniest bit of f**king credit comes in, and not having its head splattered by a Predator's boot.

Except the times we see bullets bouncing off. And that the actual number of times we see an Alien irrefutably die are actually very, very few. Mostly we see Aliens get shot and fall back out of frame, but that doesn't mean they're dead.

Quotethey just overrun humans with their numbers.
Yeah, because tactfully using the various environments to sneak up and ambush their prey had nothing to do with it whatsoever. No sir.

That's the problem AvPR had right? If you have one Predator he cannot die because he has to go to the end, (plot armor, more powerful than anything.) It becomes a problem when the Predator kills 20 Aliens without breaking a sweat because it would be 'cool'. As long as the fights are plausible and the Aliens are shown to be formidable opponents, I'll be happy.

I gotta agree with SiL, he's right in all counts, especially about using strategy to take the humans out.

Alex, if I may make a suggestion...don't have the Predator tackling multiple Aliens at once. Do a few one-on-one fights, that way more effort can be put into making the fights seem plausible, then everything else: long range caster shootouts.

Post by: War Wager on Feb 06, 2009, 06:45:26 PM
I guess at the end of the day, you want a badass Predator. The best (and only way actually) to do that it is to have him go up against dangerous enemies, ones that are capable of killing him if he makes one wrong move, yet he still ends up triumphant. Also, fights are way more entertaining when you can't tell whose going to win. I know 'Scott's going to survive to the end, but it would make the battles more interesting if the Alien bloodies him before it dies. Scenes like that in Requiem? Nope.

I do also agree with Sil.  He proves a valid point. (Nice job explaining the Aliens' in their intirety)

@Alex,

I would stray from 5 Aliens dead in 30 seconds, cause then it would turn into a blood bath brawl as opposed to an intense, skill driven one-on-one battle.

(Way more entertaining to watch each speacies fight one on one for a longer time, than a bunch of them in a short ammount of time.)

- My suggestions.  ;)

also. make sure the Environment suffures the fiight too. like something getting smashed here. and a wall crumbling there. give that ship hell!

also if ya can. see if you can make some referances to the Original ALIEN. like Scott blasting an Alien out of an Airlock or something.

also, I always wanted to see a Predator go Jason Voorhees to an Alien when hes about to kill it. so like after a long fight. have the Predator like rip out the Alien's Extending Jaw and Idk. Stab it into its head. also. if you realy like to try a 2 on one. I'd say after a few minutes of the Aliens kickin the Predator's Ass. have the predator get the upper hand by grabbing an Alien's Tail and Impaling the other Alien with the other's tail.

Also. try having the Predator use its Environment as a weapon. such as if it can't use his weapons for some reason or another, he should like grab a bar or something to beat the Alien up.

Idk. just throwing in some ideas. but I speek for us all to say we don't need to see an uber Predator like Wolf was potrayed in AvP-R. infact. if you can. see if you can make some scenes where Scott gets in such a bad fight and something happens to where the viewer think's he's dead. and right when you beleave hes gone. he comes back with a vengiance.

You overrate the acid blood way too much.
It doesn't mean that when the Predator stabs an alien there is acid blood all over the place.

There is a shot in Aliens where Hicks is on the ground and an Alien is jumping right over him, he shoots it with the pulse rifle and he doesn't get a single drop of acid blood on him.

Vasquez shoots it in the mouth like 5 times and it needs a bit of time before the acid blood starts to flow and she gets her foot burned.

Plus the Predator has a hard and tough skin, wolf must have got quite a bit of acid on his face when hunting aliens at one point of his life, he is still alive, Drake from Aliens on the other side isn't.

It hurts, it burns but it doesn't mean it has to kill a Predator when he gets acid on him.

Well yeah. Kind'a does.

Especially in the head. Never got a cut anywhere on your head? The tiniest little nick will bleed way more than the same size wound anywhere else on your body. There's a lot of blood going up there - Stabbing into an Alien's head is the last thing you want to do.

Unless the script's being done over by the Brothers Strause/a Predator fan.

QuoteThere is a shot in Aliens where Hicks is on the ground and an Alien is jumping right over him, he shoots it with the pulse rifle and he doesn't get a single drop of acid blood on him.
Him not actually hitting it may have something to do with that.

QuoteVasquez shoots it in the mouth like 5 times and it needs a bit of time before the acid blood starts to flow and she gets her foot burned.
The blood starts as soon as the skull and skin are breached.

QuoteIt hurts, it burns but it doesn't mean it has to kill a Predator when he gets acid on him.
I never said it should. That would be stupid.

But so would stabbing an Alien in the face up close. Damaging your hand with severe burns when you're trying to fend off opponents close range - Not particularly clever. Surely Predators are at least that smart?

As for the Predator skin, doesn't really hold - Lex's scar was no worse than Scar's.

Stabbing something into its head and having a cut isn't really the same thing.
Its like with Lex and the alien, she impales it and the blood shoots into the direction of the spear.
When you hit or stab something really quick the exit wound will always be bigger then the entrance wound. Its like with a bullet, when you shoot someone a high speed projectile in the head the hole is tiny in the front and much, much bigger at the exit wound.

QuoteHim not actually hitting it may have something to do with that.
Then why does the alien bother to screech ?

QuoteThe blood starts as soon as the skull and skin are breached.
Nope, when you watch the scene you see that the alien gets hurt with the first shot and you can see tiny pieces fly by. It gets hurt with the first shot.
Going back to your example, when you cut yourself it still needs a bit of time until the blood starts to flow. The blood needs to get pumped through your skin and flesh until reaching the surface and given that the alien has a hard outer shell the blood need even longer to come through that.

QuoteBut so would stabbing an Alien in the face up close. Damaging your hand with severe burns when you're trying to fend off opponents close range - Not particularly clever. Surely Predators are at least that smart?
In the heat of the combat you just think of your survival, not that you get out of the situation without a scratch. You do whatever you think is effective of killing your enemy, when the enemy is dead and you re hurt that's the point when you start to think about your actions and how you could have done this and that better.

QuoteAs for the Predator skin, doesn't really hold - Lex's scar was no worse than Scar's.
It does hold because Lex only gets a little drip of blood on top of the alien finger on her skin while the predator did ram the whole facehuger finger with its open wound into its head when marking himself. Bit of a difference.

You're right. Stabbing is worse. You open up more blood vessels.

Look at someone who's shot themselves in the head. Even if there's no exit wound, blood starts gushing out of the nose and mouth in almost comedic amounts.

QuoteThen why does the alien bother to screech ?
I could ask that about any of the fifty billion times the Aliens screech when they're not even within sight of a character between Alien 3 and AvPR. Ever since Aliens they've just ... screeched.

Dead facehugger, meaning neutralised acid.

Given the alien has a very long head filled with its brain you could stab from any angle and still injure it very badly. You don't have to stab it right in the face so you can avoid the blood coming out of the mouth.

We see a Predator on top of the pyramid with an Alien head impaled on his spear, no traces of acid blood on him, so one could say its possible.

QuoteI could ask that about any of the fifty billion times the Aliens screech when they're not even within sight of a character between Alien 3 and AvPR. Ever since Aliens they've just ... screeched.
The Aliens still have more then one screech fitting different emotions. Were talking the movie Aliens here, and in that particular one they only screech when they are getting hurt or blasted away. Otherwise they give more of a hissing.
So again, why does the Alien bother to screech when it isnt hurt? Like they did in this movie when they are getting shot at only.

QuoteDead facehugger, meaning neutralised acid.

Then why was the acid blood still active on the alien's finger lex killed 20 minutes ago or even more?
That only confirms my argument even more of Predator having tough skin, when Alien acid can burn someones face 20 minutes after its killing then how tough must it have been for scar burning himself with a alien he killed seconds ago ? Still, there is almost no difference wound wise. And scar was burning him with the whole open finger and not just a drip of acid like Lex.

The script calls for the Aliens to be screaming during the entire scene, "More like sounds of anger than pain" or somesuch. I can find the exact quote if you want.

QuoteI said "do whatever you think is effective of killing your enemy", wrestling and rolling around on the floor being none of those methods.
Some effort is usually required to kill something. It doesn't just happen. The Predator had to get into a position where it could kill the Alien. which is what it tried and succeeded in doing.

QuoteThat only confirms my argument even more of Predator having tough skin, when Alien acid can burn someones face 20 minutes after its killing then how tough must it have been for scar burning himself with a alien he killed seconds ago ?

A tiny nick on a hugger's finger burns through two decks of a starship, with each deck being several feet thick.

If the acid was still going full strength when Scar marked himself, he'd be fricking dead.

Unless you're going to start saying that Wolf took a fricking shower in the acid or something for it to do as much damage as it did, which is what he would need to do to get that burned when Preds are obviously that resilient.

And man, at the end of the day, all I'm saying is the whole idea was just stupid, for lots of reasons, and the acid blood is just one of them! That's it. I'm not saying the Predator would die, or be incapacitated, or have to go setting off his self destruct - Just that injuring his hand is the last thing it'd want to do, and an experience hunter would know that.

That's it!

But you know how it goes, what is being done in a script can be much different what makes it to the screen.
All we can really go by is the movie, and it shows that when an alien gets shot or hurt in any way they give that particular screech out.

Its only logical that when an alien gets shot the screech is more meant to be a emotion of pain  then anger. You say the script says that they are screeching throughout the whole scene, which they weren't doing in the movie. Another example of a idea that was ultimately dropped.

QuoteSome effort is usually required to kill something. It doesn't just happen.
The difference is to know what effort is appropriate to make it happen. There are many ways, all I'm saying is rolling on the floor or wrestling are not on top of that list when you're fighting a dangerous species. If you re fighting something that is just as dangerous as you are you have to know that you are going to get hurt anyway, the only thing that still counts is that you kill the thing as effective and quick as possible and not worry about that you don't get a scratch on your pretty face, otherwise you're stupid, you don't go into brawl with the thought of getting out of there completely unhurt because you're getting hurt anyway, the only way to do it is that you demoralize your enemy as quick as possible before it gets to the stage where he demoralizes you.
Which is exactly what happened to the Predator.

QuoteUnless you're going to start saying that Wolf took a fricking shower in the acid or something for it to do as much damage as it did, which is what he would need to do to get that burned when Preds are obviously that resilient.
Drake in Aliens got quite some acid on his face, one side of his face looked almost the same as wolf`s, Drake died, wolf lived. He got serious damage but they have to have some sort of tough skin otherwise he would have been dead.

This is also confirmed by the original movies, the jungle hunter got a solid log on his head, any human would be dead in a second, although he was injured he was still alive, before that he was blasted by two point blank grenades. Dutch gave him a good swing to the face with full power, a human would have a laceration or worse, he had nothing. Predator 2 was hit by multiple shotgun blasts, the same one that Harrigan used to kill like 6 guys with a single shot, and unless you're Alex Murphy who becomes RoboCop you're dead, predator lives and gets shot by Harrigans gun at the rooftop again. Hes injured, yes, but anything with human-like skin and organs would have been dead a long time ago.

Look what we did to this thread, sry Alex  :-[ Lets wrap it up now, if we want to argue further more i suggest we do it in the right thread.
Although we disagree on many things and go back and forth all the time i think its nice to have a normal argue with you without any insults, something this site should have had more often.

Johnny out.

And yet we don't see any bullets hit, nor do we see the Alien die, nor do we see it bleed. :)

QuoteThe difference is to know what effort is appropriate to make it happen.
Which is impossible if you've never actually fought whatever it is you're fighting before :)

QuoteDrake in Aliens got quite some acid on his face, one side of his face looked almost the same as wolf`s, Drake died, wolf lived. He got serious damage but they have to have some sort of tough skin otherwise he would have been dead.
Actually it's more easily explained by the fact that the acid was going directly into Drake's face, while it was largely just eating at Wolf's mandibles and the skin between them.

You're also forgetting that Drake's wound was scene immediately after the acid hit him - We don't know what it wound up looking like. Wolf could easily have been hit with less.

QuoteThis is also confirmed by the original movies, the jungle hunter got a solid log on his head, any human would be dead in a second
Skin strength would have nothing to do with that, or pretty much anything else after this you listed. Mac still sent a round through the Predator's leg with an ordinary assault rifle, before even picking up the minigun. :)

Anyway!

So what remains to be filmed, Alex?

Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: alexpj19 on Feb 07, 2009, 10:32:26 PM
well the hard part is to imagine every second, every shot , camera angle , every move of the characters in the scene in your head first and sketch up the story board, once you got that done in every detail dericting the actor is not that hard when you know exactly what you want. the second part is technical, how do you combine all of the element to make it look like it belongs there.

I'm glad they have too. That's one of the problems I have with AVP2,  the ridiculous Predalien design. The back of the Predalien looks fine, the tail is excellent, but everytime I see the front chest of the Predalien, I cringe. It looks stupid and weird. What's even worse, is the fact that the Predalien is multicoloured. Even though all the other Aliens were multicoloured as well, the colours blended in well. In the case of  the Predalien, the colours just don't fit and tonally stick out from each other. It makes it look like two creature have been mashed together :-\

From the alien side of things, AVP2 didn't capture too well. The aliens looked like men in suits most of the time, despite the amount of the technology available to avoid a result like that and Predalien, as stated before, looked like two creatures had been mashed and crammed together.

Keep in mind, Fox may have already caught wind of this, and if thats the case, they may attempt, if they haven't already to try and stop his production with a cease and discontinue order, due to copyright laws. I've seen it done before with a mod for a game, I've seen it already done with an AvP fan film, and I am beginning to fear the worst and they forced him to stop.

This isn't the first CGI fan film AvP movie that was started, the first one I was following was stopped roughly a year before the first film came out.

Keep in mind copyright laws prohibit such actions due to the fact that as awesome as the film may be, the people who created them either use their creation as a sort of resume or a product to promote their work, even though it  wasn't intend to generate money.

If this is the case, I ask Alex to not string people along and let us know he's still alive, and has not be contacted by FOX. I saw the trailer, its bad ass, and it deserves to be completed, but its availability to the public may be limited, if not non completely closed to public eyes.

A few months ago ALex had contacted FOX and they gave him the thumbs up to continue the ptoject as long as he didn't make any profit off the film. 

FOX could have changed their minds if they heard he went against the deal, but I doubt it. He probably got caught up in other things. He should be allowed to have a life to ya know.  ;)

You really thought something happened to him?

A quick look at his profile showed me that he visited the forum regularly after all, it's just that he doesn't post anything. Why? Because he wants exactly the reactions you guys are giving him.

So basicaly i just couldnt finish filming what i need, but hopefully i'll work something up soon, and finish a few last scenes. :) project is not abandoned and it will be finished.

Terminator project is something im working on while i didn't have anything on AV{RD, now i just shot last scenes for it, so im back on working on it till August 8  when i go on 3 weeks vacation. :) enjoy the photos, OHH, by the way, original "Scott" wasnt available that day, so i had to use another Scott, a body double :) but i think he did a very good job.

So people who state a fact is a troll?? Peculiar..... must be a new definition of "troll".

It's basic design knowledge; bright text on dark background, dark text on light background. Not exactly rocket science.

Just look at the guy with weird definitions, Mr. Domino's sig image. Bright red text against a very dark blue background. It's even highlighted with a white outline.

So it's epic fail.. unless your intention is for people to strain their eyes in order to be able to read the text.

No, you didn't. But you also did word it very nicely did you? Since the internet is a method of communication that relies heavily on how you word your posts, it's important to come across in the correct manner. You came off as a jackass and as such other members came to the defense. It's why it's called a community. So if you didn't mean to sound like a douche, I suggest you be careful with how you word your posts.

I want to congratulate you once more for both of the AvP and SW videos you've made. I'm impressed!.

Just a piece of advice on the Predator's eyes. Could you try a dark orange instead of that bright white color?. I honestly think the Predator would look pretty cooler with that "little" touch.

Hope this helps and keep up the good work! ;)

yeah, you should try to mix both scores from AVP and AVP-R, with some of your own music in there too. 

i would especially like to hear "Alien Fight" from Kloser's score and "National Guard Pt.2" from Tyler's score mixed together, cause they almost sound similar at one point.  but you make the soundtrack however you want Alex. (obviously  :D)

Also, how are you making your original music?

guys what do you think of a track for one of the scenes to be a kind of a techno made out of some tribal drums, its fast but fits  the action, kind of like hunt in sci-fi space jungle. its a bit out of the line of traditional soundtrack but it has some elements of traditional sounds. what do you think?

alright guys its 2:30am and the soundtrack is finished, i decided against the techno sounding track for that one fight, now i need to do a sound effects and shoot one last scene for the opening of the film which i will do next weekends, oh and the opening title with ending credits, so total length will be about 16 minutes. so i think the release date is some time in April. :)

hey Alex, You gonna post the movie on Youtube in parts? like they did with TransFormers G1 episodes?

it'll be good for thoughs who have shower internet service (like myself) post three parts (or episodes)

but if its like, 30 minutes you can simply post 2 parts.

just an Idea is all.

can't wait to see it though.

Hey guys, im working hard to finish it , last weekends i went back to the studio and shot few additional scenes  so now the film 3 minutes longer and has a few human characters so im making a new opening from what it was a month ago, i think its a small addition that will glue the story together.so far im on schedual + - 2 weeks. after final shots are finished i just need to finish sound effects and make an opening and closing credits. Oh and by the way, Predator got another little gadget. hope everyone will like he uses it for a few seconds but it looks cool. :)

can't wait to see this movie! I bet, it'll blow the official AvP films Fox made. lol, btw Alex, make sure you give Giger Credit for the Original Alien design please.

take a damn chill pill people. as I said. I was only suggesting to Alex to give Giger the credit. Jeez. flippin out over a suggestion, and for thoughs who are gonna be a smart-ass and say, "you need to take a chill pill yourself---" I am just fine, I am simply defending myself.

Actually I am serious, but this isn't the forum section to discuss it, but for the record, the aliens were never portrayed as fighters to begin with, let alone "fighers at close range." They specialize in ambushing, and attacking in the dark, which is to their advantage. They aren't warriors.

So it is impossible for Aliens to impale Predators, impregnate Predators, tear Predators apart, etc.

They are physically incapable of doing this to Predators.

Right.

Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: BANE on Apr 27, 2010, 11:43:58 AM
I have to say, whoever said that Aliens could not impale predators with their tail is pretty dumb (I mean that with the utmost respect). Look at what the queen did to Bishop!!! I mean, yeah, its the queen, but the warriors and drones of the hive still have really sharp tails. In the first movie (Alien 1979) doesn't the alien stick its tail underneath Lambert and we hear her scream? I take that to mean that the alien stabbed her with its tail. Clearly, seeing as the predators flesh is just as fragile as ours (predator 2; got blown apart by Mike Harrigan's shotgun shells...) wouldn't the alien be capable of impaling a predator as well?

As for the xenomorphs being ambushers, I agree with that. However, just because we haven't seen something doesn't mean the aliens aren't capable of it. I mean, it ambushed the first predator when it stabbed it with its tail. The second predator was also clearly a threat, so it jumped on him. It ambushed one, jumped on another. In the prior alien movies, the aliens have never had any reason to get into an all out fight; the humans were, as you say, easy pickins.

Just adding to what AintGotTome2Bleed said, if the Queen in aliens is able to f**king hide from Ripley, Newt, and Bishop and is able to stealthily strike Bishop, then I don't see how anyone can say that Aliens can't do jack shit to the Predators.

QuoteClearly, seeing as the predators flesh is just as fragile as ours (predator 2; got blown apart by Mike Harrigan's shotgun shells...)
Clearly wrong.

Predator 2 didn't get blown apart by Harrigans shotgun, he had some tiny holes infact. You know what a shotgun at that range would do to a human body? Unless you're Robocop you would be blown to pieces as seen in the beginning of Predator 2, where it took one shot in order to kill a human.

A grenade explodes right in front of the Predator in the first movie, he doesn't have a scratch. And it's not so much the skin as it's the muscle structure that's very, very tough. After all the Predator 2 jumped of a really high slaughterhouse right in front of King Willy and he didn't have to seem a problem with it at all.


I'm tired of this "the predator is just like us" bullshit, in Aliens they scream like bitches when they get hit by a shotgun, that's a reaction to pain, does that mean that their skin is "just like ours"? No.
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: BANE on Apr 27, 2010, 01:54:03 PM
That is where you are wrong. If you recall, the predator definitely DOES have scratches after the grenade explodes in front of it...how else would Dutch follow its trail of blood (lots of blood I might add)? Oh, he got a splinter. NO! However, I must agree that more damage would have been done to a human if a grenade exploded in front of them. I concede that point. However, therein lies a question that I would like to ask people involved in the movie; when the predator is shot by Mac firing blindly into the trees, he bleeds a load of blood onto a leaf. However, when a grenade explodes in front of him he bleeds only a small amount more (IMO). How does that work?

Anyway, on to Predator 2...The predator stops bullets shot by Bill Paxton's character (Forget name) at near point blank range. Clearly their armour is really, really strong, which is a possible reason for why it had surprisingly littlle damage after a grenade exploded right in front of it. In that case, the grenade blowing up is not a valid look at the predators flesh. The shotgun shots did not make little holes, they cut huge chunks out of the predators stomach. However, I must also concede that yes, more damage would have been done to a human.  However, the flesh is clearly COMPARABLE at the very least. Maybe the predators is a LITTLE stronger. The fact is, they're a hell of a lot more muscular and tougher, and so are able to live through things that would normally kill humans, making them seem to have tougher skin. But they really don't. Maybe a little, but not enough of a difference to liken it to a rhinos hide to human flesh.

I never said the Predator was just like us...what I said was the skin was just as fragile. Now, maybe i was off by a little bit, but not a lot. Their flesh may be a little tougher, but not enough to go ape shit over someone calling them equally fragile.

Yeah, after the second grenade exploded right in front of him, and he only got this little scratch on his foot, wow, he's bleeding to death, a human probably wouldn't have a leg at all after that.

Besides, he only bleeds a little bit, with the Predator luring him into the cave with it's blood, by the time the Predator unmasked himself and is chasing dutch we don't see him bleed at all, that means the wound is almost healed by that point in time.

Mac shot at him at close range, firing at him for 8 seconds, he still only got that one wound on his leg, or to quote mac "Nothing on this earth would have lived, not at that range".

Except that it didn't stop him, Lambert fired two full rounds at him, and he still got owned a few seconds later.

Your point doesn't work here, at all, as he has most of his body uncovered:
(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/gallery/albums/movies/predator/productionstills/promo08.jpg)

Just like Predator 2, so saying it was the armour is not a valid argument.

QuoteThe shotgun shots did not make little holes, they cut huge chunks out of the predators stomach.
(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/gallery/albums/movies/predator2/bluray/normal_bluray1079.jpg)
I wouldn't call that huge chunks, considering it's a shotgun that blasts through humans, he didn't even had internal bleeding, meaning that that bullets only scratched the surface, indicating that they have a pretty tough skin and muscular structure.

(https://www.avpgalaxy.net/gallery/albums/movies/predator2/bluray/normal_bluray0147.jpg)
All killed with one shot, at a more far away distance i might add.

QuoteI never said the Predator was just like us...what I said was the skin was just as fragile.
But it's not, Keyes fires at it with liquid nitrogen, that would burn a human, the Predator doesn't like it as seen, but he doesn't show a chemical reaction to it that humans would, which would be burned skin.

So even that point is wrong. I agree, probably most of the damage get's blocked by their muscle structure, but they are also extremely resistant against fire, shrapnel and liquid nitrogen, making it very clear that their skin is also pretty though, not just "a little bit".

The Predator sure take damages from gunfire but thus are minor according to Predator 2 mostly.
Well there's still a theory about the cloaking device which works as a field protector while the Predator is cloaked but that doesn't apply in the situation of the shotgun when Harrigan fire a whole magazine.
Predator are naturally strong.
But Aliens so... they both have strong organisms and skeleton reinforcement.

Get a dictionary, Ambushing, and attacking at close range have nothing in common. You can ambush at far range, or close range, I never said anything about close/far range.

I simply stated aliens are ambushing creatures, they don't square off against anyone aside from the black dude in alien 3, like that wasn't much of a challenge. Even then it took the alien a good minute to kill him.

My point is, and still will be that aliens can not go toe to toe with a predator and win, they can't square off and overpower a veteran hunter/warrior. Maybe an unblooded pred like the ones seen in the first avp, but against a predator like scar, or the one that fought Dutch, sorry, not happening.

Can't wait to see the movie, the CGI use of the Predator's face in the trailer seemed to work. I have confidence the final product will be very finely polished. Just, please have a plot and characters that aren't walking, talking cliches.

Maybe Xenomorphs prefer to ambush people but that's just good combat tactics, it doesn't mean they don't have the means to go toe-to-toe with an enemy. The Xenomorphs are fast, strong, have a barbed tail and acidic blood. Why can't they take a veteran hunter? I'd say they would be perfectly engineered to go against anything its size and still come on top. Their intelligence and good sense to conduct ambushes is just a bonus.

You seem to imply that predators have 'power levels' or something, predators don't noticeably increase their size substantially in age. The only thing that changes is experience and that's debatable on how much that affects the combat in the first place. Sheer physical strength and speed would be the deciding factor in a brawl, there's no room for finesse when you're wielding massive wristblades. Besides, novice predators would probably be highly trained in combat even before their first blooding, (you can infer this because they're a warrior culture.)
I'd argue it wouldn't make a large difference if the Predators are veterans or newly blooded, there's only so much experience does for combat techniques when strength and speed would be the obvious deciding factor.

I simply stated aliens are ambushing creatures, they don't square off against anyone aside from the black dude in alien 3, like that wasn't much of a challenge. Even then it took the alien a good minute to kill him.

My point is, and still will be that aliens can not go toe to toe with a predator and win, they can't square off and overpower a veteran hunter/warrior. Maybe an unblooded pred like the ones seen in the first avp, but against a predator like scar, or the one that fought Dutch, sorry, not happening.

Can't wait to see the movie, the CGI use of the Predator's face in the trailer seemed to work. I have confidence the final product will be very finely polished. Just, please have a plot and characters that aren't walking, talking cliches.

Maybe Xenomorphs prefer to ambush people but that's just good combat tactics, it doesn't mean they don't have the means to go toe-to-toe with an enemy. The Xenomorphs are fast, strong, have a barbed tail and acidic blood. Why can't they take a veteran hunter? I'd say they would be perfectly engineered to go against anything its size and still come on top. Their intelligence and good sense to conduct ambushes is just a bonus.

You seem to imply that predators have 'power levels' or something, predators don't noticeably increase their size substantially in age. The only thing that changes is experience and that's debatable on how much that affects the combat in the first place. Sheer physical strength and speed would be the deciding factor in a brawl, there's no room for finesse when you're wielding massive wristblades. Besides, novice predators would probably be highly trained in combat even before their first blooding, (you can infer this because they're a warrior culture.)
I'd argue it wouldn't make a large difference if the Predators are veterans or newly blooded, there's only so much experience does for combat techniques when strength and speed would be the obvious deciding factor.   

Im not going to go on a self praising rant, but because of my profession and career, basic and advanced combat was part of my training. I'm no Chuck Norris, but I consider myself big and strong enough to be somewhat intimidating in a fight. However, despite my size, if I knew I was going up against someone with extensive experience then I would have something to worry about, despite his size. Speed and strength fall short in comparison to experience in most situations. Sure an 80 year old man with experience would lose against a 25yr old dude in his prime, but thinking realistically a 25 yr old dude in his prime against a 37 year old with years of experience and still relatively in shape, the advantage falls in favor of the experience.

"Chance favors the prepared mind." I would actually say the opposite to what you stated is actual fact. Theres only so much speed and strength can do for you, in the end experience will be the deciding factor.

guys dont forget all of my aliens are CGI interacting with an actor, im not a 3D guru so i had to work around alot of corners, like trying to choreograph the fights so they would be more realistic for me to do, of course  i wish i could do more with 3D animation but at this point my skills are still limited :( plus the dammage on the predator would be very hard to do in post, it takes alot of tracking and rotoscoping. so keep it in mind when u watch it. still tried to make the fights some what fun to watch.

alex, if it is even half of what we saw in the trailers, its amazing! Can't wait!

I'd agree only if two opponents were roughly matched, and I'm not going to debate the merits of physical attributes in comparison to experience, but the Predator uses wrist blades. They're long and unwieldy, there's no fancy maneuvers. The Predators just hack and slash with them. I doubt they'd really pick up anything revolutionary, simply because they're probably highly trained by the time of their first hunt and their very weapons would limit what they could do.
I'm sure experience would refine their skills, I'm not denying that but I remain convinced that experience in the Predator's case wouldn't be such a deciding factor.
The Aliens themselves have the same kind of combat technique in each case, they use their claws, tail, bite in open combat. I'd argue after fighting a certain number of Xenomorphs there'd be precious little gleaned. It's like observing a dog. They might have their quirks but they all walk on all fours and have fur.
Xenomorphs don't have martial art styles, they all universally bite and claw and impale people. That's why I think strength and speed would be a greater deciding factor in a straight up fight between an Alien and a Predator.

Post by: TITANOSAUR on May 08, 2010, 05:18:52 AM
this is what I wish FOX would do with their movies. (actualy I wish all Major Movie Companies did this) instead of rushing trying to get it done on a release date, that has nuthing to do with the movie, they should work on the movie, polish it up 'til they its real good, and then show it to a test audiance, then, If they like it. put out trailors, posters, and interviews then release the film.

you see, this is why we'll never have "The Perfect Movie" because untill major movie company do what Alex is doing to make his movie good, they'll never achieve this.

now for some total day-dreaming for things that will never happen...

wouldn't it be cool if you where able to get Fox's OK and put this movie out on theatres then on DVD? it'll be SOOOO Kickass! then NECA will call and want to make millions of action figures of your Pred(s) (is there one or two. sorry I forgot) and the three Alien figures. then you'd make a shit load of money (it may be Fox's License, but they'd still have to pay you because it was your hard work that made the movie not theirs).

but as I stated before. all wishfull thinking. *Sigh*

Anyways, can't wait till the movie comes out. we should start doing some fan art. lol.

Uh, a lot of movies do.

And even if a movie tests for an audience they can end up crap. A lot of really good movies had negative test responses and a lot of shit ones had positive responses.

Test audiences are useless. If you get a group of people who are predisposed to not liking certain things your movie does, you're going to get an undeserved negative response.

We'll never get 'The Perfect Movie' because the people who make them are flawed.

Due to my sheer awesomeness, Alex let me have an early look at the film. It easily exceeds S.E.E.D in every way. From the opening titles, you know it'll be special. The blend of CGI and practical elements is mostly seemless with only 1 particular section that stood out to me - I wont spoil anything as I promised not to.

The fights were mostly fair and balanced with only a scene or two that made me kinda wringle in my seat as an Alien fan. Alex tried real hard to make it work and I think it does so kudos for that.

The length seemed just about right. It never dragged and it carried well.

You're gonna love it. Think he said it's going online publically in about 3 or so days.

Drones, predalien, queen, humans etc. I felt like it was a bit of an overkill.
[close]

Besides a couple of things, the fx were good and it was a nice combination. I just wish you had a better pred suit.


But thx again, it was a nice pastime, i don't know if it was worth 3 years of your time but you did a good job.

Hah, there are no words for how much I love this film. It's literally 20 mins of pure Predator awesomeness. The things that the Predator accomplishes takes the concept of species balance, throws it on the ground and pounds away at it's face until it's nothing more than a greasy smear on it's fist.

The Sparta kick on the Alien left me with an enormous grin. So awesome.

DUDE! I loved it! So much! I'm an Alien fan, and I felt the species were balanced, as there was only one Predator. The Aliens got a decent amount of hits and made the battles VERY enjoyable. I love this fanfilm, and I'm probably going to watch it again later! AWESOME! And thanks for a quality AVP animation! :D

I felt the second part is rushed. Too many fights in a very short time.

But overall it's entertaining and I like it.
Good job.

One question, does this Predator have a "name" that it should be referred to as on the forums?

And I would love to see you make a feature length animated AVP movie! :D I would love to see what you can do with 2 hours!
Also, I liked the avpgalaxy.com reference in the credits. :P

Superb film, i enjoyed this 20 min fan film more than i did AVP Requiem and at times more than the first AVP.

My favourite parts:

The build-up and how the Predator was introduced etc, and how he made his arrival and moving throught the Sulaco.
The use of original Music from Aliens/Predator.
The tone, really felt like i was in the world of "Aliens" but at the same time Watching a Predator film.
The part where the Predalien gets shot by the marine, and the original Predator theme came in sent chills down my spine.
The ending, very dignified and had the same feeling as the scene where cage is set on fire in "Kick ass" or when tallahasse is making a last stand in "Zombieland".

Very well made film, this is one of my favourites now for sure, and i think we have a new Predator to add to the mythos, defo helped to span the wait for "Predators"

All in 9/10, it's only not a 10 for me as someone mentioned already the alien combat segment was a little haphazard, other than that all was outstanding!

I enjoyed it, but I was a little disappointed with some elements. I'm not complaining, I know it took a long time to make and a whole lot of it was awesome, but there were a few bits I didn't like.

EDIT:

Spoiler
I didn't like how the acid blood didn't come into play very much, I know it was probably time consuming or something but it would have been nice to see a bit more.

I didn't like how the Aliens only landed a few hits on the Predator, rather than injuring him. It reminded me a little too much of AvPR.

Queen and Predalien felt a bit rushed into the film.

I'm pretty sure the Predators had the incentive of sending forth a professional combatant - one whose got years of experience fighting the Xenomorphs. I say this because their technology potentially fell into the wrong hands, judging from the prologue. That's a pretty big deal for them.

Either way, this film was very well done. The CGI was good too, considering the budget. But what mattered to me even more was the Predator's mannerisms - VERY reminiscent of the original. Fox could learn a thing or two from this.

You are asking way too much from a fan film done with a $500 budget.


I myself enjoyed the film. Being what it is, it's fantastic. Oh, if AvPR had half of this film... seriously, some bits are awesome. Like the Sparta Kick :D
The 3d models are very great also. Bit loss on the slimy part (they are dry) but I don't really care. Love the use of the original soundtracks. Seeing the ship with the original Alien overture gave me chills. :)

The ability to tell a good story doesnt cost money at all. Like i said, my main problem was the pacing, first half very good, once he's inside the ship it felt rushed and there was just too much going on. Less is more sometimes, the queen was just overkill.

So if anything, he had too much of an budget, putting way too much things in a short feature, not allowing it to unfold.

It just went *boom* alien *boom* predalien *boom* human blows predalien *boom* predator kills human *boom* queen and then ship explodes. END

I'm not, I'm saying this from a fanfilm perspective, that was the same problem with S.E.E.D, it had all those great costumes and stuff and it failed due to bad storytelling and bad editing.

The second half felt rushed and uninspired, whats so hard to understand about that? You don't agree with me? Fine, i don't give a shit about that, nor do I'm saying that i could have done it better, still, my point stands. It was good, but i wasnt impressed like some people are. Big deal.

That's not what the fan film's about. It's fairly clear you can't do a good story with both Aliens and Predators in the same thing. Even Fox can't manage it. How do you expect a fan to come up with a A+ story? Especially a film that's just 20 mins long.

I didnt meant the story as a stand alone thing, but how it was told. The second half felt rushed, with too much stuff going on, it felt like he just wanted to finish the damn thing no matter what and threw stuff in my face all at once. Thats my beef with the movie.

Bollocks. AvP2 (game) had a great story that tied into each franchise without overruling anything. It simply used them as a narrative spring to propel its own well-done story. Sure, it wasn't perfect itself, but it was a good story. You don't even need the 12-15 hours of gameplay to tell it, since any game artifically lengthens its own plot to accommodate the gameplay itself.

That said, 20 minutes or so isn't enough to achieve that. It sounds like the story itself wasn't the underlying issue as much as the pacing was, though.

Bravo Maestro you have accomplished what Fox can't do in 2 awfull movies, In matter of fact, does the redemption title is in anyway related to AVP or AVP-R? because it's definetly a Redemption.

I enjoyed this movie so much there are some memorable parts in this fan film that it's worth to remember, I give you 5/5, CGI is very well done and the fight scenes were also very good, the only thing that pisses me off is all the bitching about the "little dissapointments", 3 years people I dare you to reach what alex did here for all of us, In my opinion this is by far the best AVP fan film ever done, SEED was good but not good enough and  no matter what AVP redemption kicks ass, the movie is a llittle rush at the end?, yeah, so what? it's fan made people don't expect that everything works perfect. Music and editing very well done too. Say whatever you want to say but at the end you will be watching this movie all over again.

If I have to critique something it would be the predators mask, but in general the costume was awesome, Predator looked and felt very light, like Wolf, like the way it should be. 

5 stars

Tastes & Color can't be argue. If someone like something, and someone don't, that's it. No matter what you think of people's opinion, they are in right to more or less like it or not.

I think Alex Popov did a very good job (VFX imply a lot of work) about CGI.
Concerning the story, well it seems a bit basic but not so bad at all.
My disappointment was the fact the second part was rushed (When predator get to the ship.)
And probably also the fact that Aliens again are piece of shit. But then it's my opinion and you may have a different one, I don't care I have mine.

Anyway good work.

I can only watch the first five minutes right now because my internet's a filthy whore, but I'm impressed.

The Predator corpse and the ensuing predaburster looked like images and the Predator suit doesn't look quite as natural as I might've liked, but you really capture some brilliant atmosphere. Your use of music is also really appropriate; it builds on the visuals without overshadowing what's going on. The acting and costumes were really nice, too. There was a liiiiittle bit of forced linage going on, but overall it was all very smooth.

The first five minutes get an 8/10 from me, where 5/10 is an average, enjoyable-if-forgettable experience.

Not bad. As stated before, a few errors with pacing in the second half (the first was spot-on), and I do take issue with the portrayals of the Aliens, but I'm not gonna get into some debate over it. Overall, fairly enjoyable. When the Alien music started to play at the start, I got a chill up my spine. I love that score. I also imagined that when the Predator realized the man had a grenade, his face was a little like this:

Hey Alex, I'm trying to download the vid, but my god forsaken connection keeps failing on me when I get a quarter into the film and I would always have to reload the vid. (My Internet is Bitchass slow) can you make a three parter? you don't have to if you don't want to, just saying. I'm sure theres more people like me with the same problems. and thus, sence I can't watch it all the way through, I can't give a review nor can I rate it, Comment, and Critique it. so untill I can watch the whole film, I can't say anything about it, cause in my mind, that would be disrespectfull if I just saw a few minutes, even if it is unintentionable.

Copy the video's URL and set it as MP4. Then paste it into iTunes. This may not work, though, as the file may be too big.

EDIT: AGH! You need to pay to convert videos from Vimeo...thats f**king bull...I'll see if I can find other websites, I know there are plenty out there.

ipod takes mp4, and i am splitting it in 3 parts to post it on youtube, its just its still giving me some sound issues, but it will be there hopefully tonight.

you sure its not just your computer? well take your time, I like to watch this without the sound being mucked up.

Youtube shouldn't take it off. if they do he can always post it on another site after all. he did it with VIMIO. (as to why he can't put the three parts on VIMIO is beyond me, possibly cause he already posted the full vid on it and its against their rules or somethin) personaly, its Youtube's seemingly obsessive need to delete awsome vids that makes me dislike the site. dispite the fact that I watch the vids on the site. its when they delete such cool vids that pisses me off. especialy when the vid has nothing bad on it or anythin.

That's because King Kong was an overblown piece of shit that outstayed its welcome ninety minutes in and sucked all the fun and adventure out of a timeless classic and replaced it with a computer generated monkey skating on some f**king ice.

Just saw the video and I thought it was kinda good, but not that great like Batman: Dead End. There were some fights in the film that there were either too rushed or there were just mimicking other films like the--

Spoiler
spartan kick from 300 and the Alien attacking from behind the Predator so that it can destroy it's plasma caster, which this reminds of the scene in AVPR.
[close]

I was also kinda disappointed about the--

Spoiler
death of the Predalien. Sure it kick the Predator's butt for a short period of time, but it was easily killed by an injured marine. Why he is still alive? I mean, I thought the ship was overrun by Aliens. Maybe he use "The Newt's Hide n' Sneak Technique" from the Aliens movie or something, I don't know.
[close]

But besides all of these few problems, I thought the movie was kinda interesting. It has a couple of good special effects here and there, a solid storyline, and it is definitely way better than AVPR, however, it wasn't that better than Paul W.S. Anderson's AVP and Alien: Resurrection. But so what? So what? The movie was supposed to be a fan film and all fan films aren't great. The reason why I like fan films is that they tribute our two favorite franchises of all time, and I respect that. :)

If Alex Popov didn't took any ideas from other films and rushed all fight scenes throughout the film, then this fan film would have been one of the greatest AVP fan films of all time.

If I have to rate this, I'll rate it an solid 3/5.

Good job, Alex Popov.  :)

Word. It sure as hell seems like Alex could establish a short-story within this one, starring him. Fanfic perhaps? Either way, that'd be the icing on the cake - even if the marine lived a short life, it would be interesting to see his tale when (maybe prior) hell broke loose.

What would you call him though? I'd personally go for Pvt. Lambern. Fits him pretty well, imo.

I realise that due to how the fights were done, making a single long fight would take forever, but making the Predator/PredAlien fight more substantial, maybe dropping the marine, and not having the Queen fight at the end would've fixed some pacing issues. Or maybe PredAlien fight goes a bit longer, Pred gets more hurt, Pred has a bit of a fight with the marine, marine blows himself up, and the Pred is impaled by debris when he lands in the Queen's chamber

All up, though, I really liked it.

My only real issue with the Aliens is that they spent a lot of time doing nothing when they could've been killing the shit out of Predalex. One got its arms cut off and didn't even give a shit, so it's not as if the film downplayed their resilience or anything, but the fights with the Alien warriors would've been improved a lot if they had been less of a case of the Aliens waiting for Predalex to choose how to kill them.

It would be better dramatically to allow the Aliens to get the upper hand and then have Predalex pull some act of cleverness or ruthlessness out of nowhere. Or even if the Aliens fought well, but Predalex was just a step ahead all the time.

I really like the Predalien fight, especially when
Spoiler
Predalex impales its head with the thing's own tail... and then it gets up.

Good work on the Predalien design, too.

Hey guys, you where wondering who that szuran dude was, well I was reading the comments about the AVP Redemption's release, and his name did come up.

Quoteszuran | 15 May 2010 16:18
It sucks. The pacing is non-existent (there's a sudden jump from "it's calm" to "shit hits the fan"), there's no plot, there's no hero I can relate to, so I don't give a crap about anything. CGI is very poor (texture resolutions would be considered low even in 1999), animation is laughable, and the photography, along with lighting, is amateurish. Oh, and did I mention Predator's chicken legs? Come on...

I know this is a fan film made by one person only, but still – it's so bad I want my 20 minutes of life back

Frankly, I don't blame Alex for wanting this guy to piss off. theres no valuable Critique, its not even an F**king review. he's just putting Alex and his movie down for no apparent reason. obviously he's jealous cause he's not Talented or as willing as Alex is to make a fan film.

Re: Story comments. The film was from the POV of the Predator. To carry a more substantial story on that, you'd have to have some kind of voiceover or maybe more going on to make it interesting. Only other way we'd have had a story would be through inclusion of more human characters and that would make or break it for people based on that actors skills.

To compare Redemption's downfalls to SEED is over-the-top. S.E.E.D failed more so on it's editing during the second half of the movie and it's actors skills. I couldn't hell what the flip was happening with SEED. With Redemption, I just think it was basic and I think for being a 20 minute long fanfilm, it carried it well.

If you ever want to make another film, I think one story that could be cool is from the last marine's POV. From when the aliens get lose to his sacrifice to try to kill the Predator.
Also, I remember seeing some Terminator clips of yours. Are you making a Terminator movie, or were those clips just for fun?

I am just in from work, watched Redemption last night on my Pioneer Kuro 50 inch Plasma thru Ps3, looked the part when it was upscaled, and the sound was actually very good through my system, well impressed, look forward to an even higher quality version to keep.

As much as i love it, i have to disagree with a comment someone posted regarding this being better than Rodriguez's "Predators". Only because i don't think tis fair to judge something you haven't seen in it's entireity yet.

If you mean the general setting and story is personally more favourable to you, then i take that back of course.

I was pretty impressed with the whole thing. As a fan film, its great. 10/10 for the efforts ! Best avp fan film to date.

But, it does suffer from the aliens vs predator problem avp:r had. Only 1 pred vs 5 or so aliens. I'm not saying that a pred can't take down 5 aliens, its just the way he does it that really annoys me.

A predator ''a la Riddick'' is not a good idea. Really it ain't...

Spoiler
Really ? A predator killing aliens with 2 small daggers ? Really ? *cough*acid blood much ?*cough* I can understand that a small budget will hurt things as you can't really do everything you want, but yeah.. Forget about the daggers next time. Stupid idea... Especially when the pred was stabbing the alien like 20 times. That was so bad I laughed at the stupidity. Not saying you're stupid, but the scene is.
[close]

Another point I disliked :

Spoiler
The ''this is sparta'' kick will upset any alien fanboy out there, but the slow motion really makes it worst, I don't believe that slow motion belongs in a avp movie.
[close]

And this fight was the worst :

Spoiler
Predalien fight was pretty funny actually. Head lock for the win, everybody knows that you will kill an alien by hitting it bare handed several times... The predalien atleast used his tail.
[close]

This might come out as a rant, but I'm only expressing my opinions here on what I know you could've done better. How can anyone complain on the effects ? They're great for what this is. I can't really complain on the pacing and and effects and all really. If you really wanted to, you could have tried harder. But its pretty standard and it gave us what we wanted. A.V.P. action. I did see that your goal was not to tell an epic story, but really to get to the avp part. The introduction to the main action was good enough to get me into it.

Again this is the best fan film we have for avp. Congrats for the effort, I think everybody here appreciate it. I'm looking forward for more stuff from you.

Overall I'd give it 7/10, some really nice ideas and effects for a fan film.

Like somebody (aeus? idk) said before: this fan film takes the concept of species balance and drives its face into the ground repeatedly. You just have to accept it.

This was allot of fun.

For a fan film I though it was exceptional. Great use of the tools you had at your disposal. There were moments when this felt very professional.

Wasn't a fan of the story elements though. I felt like it was pretty much AVP:R in space and that turns me right off.

Before commenting I have to say congrats on just getting the muth'uckah done.  I know first hand how hard this is to do - especially doing it all on your own - and will be releasing a Star Wars fan film in the not to distant future that mixes a lot of live action with CG, and would be well chuffed if I got half the positive comments this is getting.

Unfortunately, I couldn't see large chunks of parts 2 and 3 cos I have a shitty monitor with knackered brightness controls.  What I could at least look pretty good - although Aliens seemed to stand around waiting on occassion during fights.  It at least looked like there was some variety in the combat between Predator and Alien.  The Predator nabbing the hugger out of the air, flinging it then shooting it, was great.

In terms of the effects, it was obvious what was CG in terms of the environment, but the Predator meshed so well with them I often couldn't tell if the Predator was live action or computer generated.

Couple of minor nitpicks - the rotating WY logo at the start all dirtied up didn't make any sense.  Also in that scene bit too many jumps around and interference with the video feed too.  Another thing with the establishing shot of the Predator planet - isn't OUR system the Solar System?  The scenes setting up the Predator going on his mission with a couple of transmissions seemed a bit redundant - but since I don't know if there's a pay off for these, I can't really comment.

But, all in all, I will sit down and watch this properly on a decent monitor - which is saying something since most fan films aren't worth a second look.

Well done.

@SM - 'Solar system' just means orbital planets rotating around a Sun. Ours is coined Solar system because it was the first we knew of. Just like our only natural satellite is called the 'moon', but clearly other planets in our system have moons.

in that case it might well have had "Location: Space" you might aswell not bother saying that it's a solar system Solar System is a measure of scale not location, (like saying planetary system, or star cluster, or galaxy)

also there is a distiction between THE Solar System, THE Sun, THE Moon, THE World and just A Solar System, A Sun, A Moon, A World etc.

Like it fixed things that Paul Anderson did wrong...

I don't know if it's already been asked or not, but what program did you use for the rendering of characters/ creatures.... In the style of King Willy, this is great, man.

Truly great...

Makes me look at things I've done and think "why even bother".

Brilliant.

Thanks man, i say never give up on your projects, my inspiration was "Batman Dead End" love that flick. as for the programs i used: all aliens animated in "Poser" you can find alien 3D models for poser all rigged and ready to be animated and rendered, just google search "Swidhelm alien for poser" and have fun with it ;)

I've got the aliens models - the warrior, queen, egg, facehugger... Thought I recognised them, but wasn't too sure. Swidhelm's a member of these boards, too - I've seen him in the Fan Section with his work on a Predator figure... speaking of which, where did you get the Predator model from? I've got a couple of different versions, but none are as good as the one you've used... Just curious... I've always loved messing around with 3D graphics/ images, but I've never managed anything on this scale....

Again, loved the film.

Our system is the Solar System and our sun often referred to as Sol.  Our moon is also called Luna.

Either way it's not a big deal, even though the legend on screen is a bit confusing, it's quickly apparent it's not our system.

i dunno, it's a good fan short sure, but i'm not sure if a 15 minute best bits compilation of AVPR would be any worse, the only good things it has that seperates it from AVPR is a better Predalien design, a queen, a better story and the fact it's set in space.
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: MadassAlex on May 19, 2010, 03:40:03 PM
Better acting and more likable characters, too.

Sure, the marine that shows up doesn't say anything, but he's effective:

- He provides tension and excitement through blasting the Predalien from off-screen. We're left wondering what's going on and the momentary confusion is resolved by the revelation of the marine himself.
- He's afraid of the Predalien, even after downing it. There's human caution there, and we're left shouldering his own feelings of uncertainty.
- He's on the same level as us. It shortly occurs to us that Spartan Scott is still somewhere in the room, and when the sound effects suggest this, we're in the marine's own boots.
- When speared, he acts like a total badass and gives Spartan Scott a run for his money. Instant cred.

You could essentially have the film as we've seen it be the first ten minutes and last ten minutes of a feature-length film. Improve the visual and animation aspects and we've got a perfectly workable introduction and conclusion.

The 70 minutes that aren't there can essentially be a little bit of Spartan Scott entering the ship and altering some of the situations the other marines find themselves in, and a lot of those other marines doing their thing. We've essentially got a spaceship full of Aliens, labs and dark corners with a Predator stalking about and a squad of marines trying to figure everything out. There's plenty that can be done to fill up 70 minutes.

(But I would personally upscale the Aliens a lot).

i concede that the scientist in the video log was good, and a good actor, but after that scene it did feel a bit like AVPR: in space. although i did say "the best bits of AVPR" so it would all really depend on if everything that was added was a really good story. it would be great

Had Alex had more time/resources, do you guys think that a Grid Alien "reincarnation" scene would have been epic. The Alien that got blasted away by the net could have come out of the net, have a slow, dramatic first appearence, and provided a great Alien vs Predator fight with the "reborn" version our out favorite AVP Alien.
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: alexpj19 on May 20, 2010, 01:02:33 AM
Funny u mensioned the grid alien, cause originally I thought of that 2 he was suppose to show up during the predalien fight and almost kill the predator, the only reason he survived is because of marine. And yeah the short film about the marine's survival sounds very tempting right now, it will be just like "alien", small group of people trying to get to the drop ship in the cargo bay , to get off infested sulaco, in the end he is the only one who gets to it. Hears the roars and sees the pissed off predalien in the end of the corridor , aims, shoots , cut to black the end. The rest is told in Redemption. Will see maybe one day, I'll find time to do it , or we can get a few dollars together, and it will help the production ;)

Watched, and was absolutely stunned. 4.5/5 is my vote. Whole thing was well choreographed, well-effected(?), well acted. Almost has a possibility of an extended mythology (absolute potential as a feature film), and has a distinctive "Dead Space"-esque vibe of isolation and survival.

Elaborate please?
TOHO goes apeshit for every single thing out there that merely includes Godzilla and it's not theirs. Shuts down fan videos on youtube and haunts down everyone which uses something symilar to Godzilla.
Clicky (http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2008/11/godzilla-terror/). The article is partly-humorous but speaks the whole truth.

true, but it would be nice if there was a really high quality version on the web, perhaps if an HD version was put on torrent and everyone the got it promised to seed it.

it's all about having a decent and legally binding disclaimer, for example, if it states clearly that donations are not mandatory for those asking for DVDs, and that all donations would go towards making another film/paying for domain/webservices etc and not be used as "profit", and that he could prove those claims after the fact, it would probably be fine.

I've been gone for awhile, finally got a chance to see this movie. I'm not kidding Alex, I really thought this was going to suck monkey balls. I thought it was going to have corny action scenes, bad editing and bad acting and bad everything.

But this movie was f--king awesome :o

Great visuals, a good cast of actors, impressive CGI effects, and the action scenes were sweet dude lol. Your film had a better story, better ideas and better characters than anything in the AVP movies. I'm sure if you were given the same budget as the Strause Brothers your film would have been 100x better and I really mean that.


10/10 it's the best AVP fan-film ever made.

I know this is a couple of weeks overdue, but I've been away.

Having just finished watching AVP Redemption, I really have to hand it to you Alex, it was spectacular, far beyond what I thought was possible in a home-made movie. The use of authentic sound effects & creature animation really drew me in, & in some of the scenes I could have sworn I was watching a feature film. The story was simple & effective, & I thought the fights between the predator & the aliens had intensity in spades. It is by far the best fan flick out there.

I give you a great round of applause, you have some damn fine film making skills, & this was certainly worth the wait.

Hands down, without a doubt, one of the coolest fan films ever. Definately tops Batman Dead End as far as I'm concerned. It was also miles ahead of S.E.E.D., which was quite a disappointment. Best of luck in the future Mr. Alex Popov. You've got talent, good sir.

Post by: Vecrotus on Jun 05, 2010, 05:56:18 PM
This is by far one of the best A/P fan films that I have ever seen and it easily replaces Batman: Dead End as one of my favourites. For what its worth those two years you spent making this film Alex it was worth it. The only thing that let the film down for me was the lighting. It was better than AVPR but worse than AVP's but apart from that this was entertaining to watch from beginning to end. I haven't looked into the archives for this film on this board but I was wondering if there were any deleted scenes?

Probably the fact of the story.
Or the fact that Alien / Predator : CGI = No way.
Or the fact that it was another AVP / AVP-R in the space.
Or the fact that everybody think it's amazing because it's a fan and not official.

Just because you don't like it doesn't mean that it's terrible, sure it's not up to the standards of Hollywood movies, but wake up, it's a fan film. An amazingly well put together fan film, a masterpiece of its own. Alex took the time to make it, take the time to appreciate it.

i kind of agree that it's a bit cheesy, sparta kick for example, but most of it is excellently written and acted, (i'm a massive fan of the video message/log segment) and the VFX are amazing for the budget

Quote from: Le Celticant on Jun 18, 2010, 01:20:47 PM
Or the fact that Alien / Predator : CGI = No way.
Or the fact that it was another AVP / AVP-R in the space.
Or the fact that everybody think it's amazing because it's a fan and not official.

If you don't like it because of this... ;)

i kind of agree that it's a bit cheesy, sparta kick for example, but most of it is excellently written and acted, (i'm a massive fan of the video message/log segment) and the VFX are amazing for the budget

Excellently written and acted. I disagree, I appreciate the impressive computer effects  but how was it well written? To me it was just the Predator going in to eliminate some evidence. The acting was alright, and I know you're not going to have characterisation and back story in AvP but there felt like emotional investment in it, and that wouldn't have been THAT hard to achieve (doesn't need effects, just a character who isn't a silent, badass alien ninja) . Its a pred going in to kill things, cool, it needs to be short, ok, understood, but the result doesn't have the punch to make it: "excellently written and acted."

Hey guys, I got a great news, i got an awesome manager and just signed with the 5th biggest talent agency in Hollywood ! :) Now starting to work on my own Sci-Fi idea for the development in to a full feature, so im kind of drunk to day, celebrating. and also the motion picture department of "Dark Horse" comics and a half of their studio are a big fans of AVPRD, my manager sent it to a producer over there, and they all loved it. so who knows it might be an AVP:Redemption comic book out soon.

This is the story that the AVPR should have had. Set in the dark and brooding atmosphere in space, not in some down to Earth town with a cliche soap opera storyline that would even make a bad soap opera.

Post by: Burn the Floor on Jul 01, 2010, 04:40:54 PM
The major difference between AVPR and Redemption (besides the atmosphere) is that Redemption does not pretend to offer you a plot; it is just straight up action, plain and simple. It doesn't promise characters and deliver cliches, it does not promise story but deliver a cookie-cutter excuse for more action scenes and senseless gore. With Redemption, what you see is what you get.

I heard about this edit at the forums at fanedit.org.

I really enjoyed this alot.
I wasn't expecting alot but exceeded expectations and it's just a whole lot of fun to watch.

You guys that over analyze everything will have a hard time enjoying anything.

Anyway, I was able to download the 3 youtube flvs which seem to be better quality, at 720x480.
The syncing problem is probably because parts 1 and 2 are at 29.919 fps while part 3 is 29.970.
Hence, the syncing issue when I tried combining all 3 into 1 file.

When joining them together with avidemux, I was able to change the fps of parts 1 and 2 to 29.970 without changing the running time. This way I could keep the original audio and hopefully eliminate further syncing issues.
I also cropped out the black bars of all 3 parts and deleted the introductions of parts 2 and 3 so it's all seemless, just like the full version at vimeo.

After joining everything, the end mp4 was still slightly out of sync, but when merged to MKV it came out perfect.

So, the result:

AVP Redemption.mkv
176 MB, 22mn 12s
Video: MPEG4 Video (H264) 720x384 29.97fps, 1000 Kbps
Audio: AAC 44100Hz stereo, 108 Kbps

The audio is original and the video bitrate is slightly higher than the original youtube clips (800~900 Kbps) because I didn't want to lose any quality.

You can download from MegaUpload: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=PDH270EM

May be viewable it at megavideo: http://www.megavideo.com/?d=PDH270EM (MV automatically converts videos upped to MU after a couple of days but the quality is diminished)

At fanedit.info, you can also download a fanedit called AvP Outbreak (by Wraith), which is really good.
If you do get it, download the avi file at MU and not the mp4 at rapidshare, as the avi has much better, DVD quality video along with 5.1 AC3 audio.

Edit: Actually, if Alex doesn't like my posting this, I can remove it.

Please let it be a pushover, not saying your not good enough to whatever it is you want to get from this meeting, but the heads of the company are bound to be tough, and critical.

If that don't make sense then I don't know. Basically you justified them for being critical and I never said there wasn't a reason for them to be critical, I just hope there not.

Your response made no contextual sense, but thank you for clearing it up.

I don't think they have any reason to be critical as such, but to get a movie made is very difficult when dealing with studios.  Alex is in a good position though in that he has Redemption as a good calling card.  It shows everything he's capable of, be that writing, editing, effects, sound, whatever.  It's more broad than simply trying to hock a spec script.

Excellent work Alex!! I really enjoyed AVP:Redemption!!Finally a real AVP film that delivers!!
Great work on the opening credits and all of the Sulaco exterior shots.The Predator homeworld looks amazing and is one of my favorite shots!Also loved the scene with the Elder Pred in the altar chamber with the holographs,very well done.The main Pred in his ship preparing for battle scene also looks very good.Pred arriving in Sulaco looks very good,well lit backgrounds and good lighting on Pred.I specially like the egg chamber scene,very well done.Who ever was playing the Pred made a really good job with Pred movements and fight choreography as well.Great action scenes!the Aliens really look good.Pred targeting laser very well done.Pred cloaking also very well done.Loved the Predalien fight scene!Tail thru head!Ouch!LOL.Marine scene also great,loved the Pred Shield!!You gotta copyright that thing man!!Funny how similar the impaled marine scene was to Nikolai´s from Predators!!I think they ripped you off man!!LOL.
Final battle scene with the Queen Alien simply epic!!
And also epic the ending shot with the exploding Sulaco!!Very well done Fx.
Overall a great production,great soundtrack and good effects.Only have some minor complaints about the Pred wearing boots and didn´t really care for the spinning laser balls too much,but that just a personal opinion.Besides that,everything looks awesome!!
I wish you lotsa luck in your future projects Alex,and who knows,maybe someday you will be directing AVP3!!! :)

I didn't mean like that. It's just, I can't think of a single good crossover film in the long history of crossovers. The closest one that comes to mind is AvP, and that wasn't good at all.

Seeing how Fox just told Ridley Scott, one of the greatest directors in history that he can't make a rated R Alien film and they want a 40 mil low budget movie instead, and the fact AVP is still on hold...

I can only imagine what Fox is going to tell Alex I'm afraid :-\

I don't think they told him not to make an R film. It might've been his decision. After all, wasn't it the environmental horror that made Alien scary, not the gore? And it had a pretty small budget, too. We're not talking about a Jim Cameron film, here.

I don't recall reading anything about them telling him to make it pg13. I know that it will be, and even so, my point stands: we don't need gore; It's Ridley freaking Scott, not Quentin freaking Tarantino.

alexpj19,

I just gotta say: Holy SHIT that was good! Well done my friend! AVP Redemption was thoroughly enjoyable. That was the honestly one of the best Alien or Predator experiences of my life. I kid you not, I liked it on par with the original Predator film. Your film made me the kind of happy that I was when I got my first Alien action figure as a kid in the early 90s.

Just one person making it was all the more impressive. I just found this thread and I wish you the best of luck with Hollywood. I hope your Goliath film takes off and you hit it big. You have some real talent.
Title: Re: AVP-REDEMPTION short film
Post by: Requiem28 on Jan 20, 2012, 05:49:29 PM
Alex,

If you do make it big in Hollywood, would you consider re-making AVPRD, even as still a small, self satisfying film, since you'd be exposed to (don't take this the wrong way) a more professional camera and production unit?

This is a neat f**king thing to show us, I'll definitely be watching this at home when I get there. Hell, I am going to turn on the x-box, play youtube, and watch this on my tv, no way it deserves any less from me.

This proof of concept for a sequel is all I need to satisfy me right now. I honestly hope that this sequel, or side-story ,or whatever it will be, takes off.

How do you get that handheld camera effect? Is this all CG? Is it CG tracked onto live footage?

The handheld camera us my handheld camera work, just walking around my living room, than tracked and imported in to 3d scene in maya, glad you guys all like the test, I'm kind of trying to make up my mind about the sequel, I have awesome story in mind, will see, if I decide to do it this time I'll try to raise a budget for it through the kickstarter, I want to go for much higher quality this time, pay actors, get some props, colonial marines uniforms, costumes and so on, so a lot of planing and things to consider before committing to at least a year long project :) but if I do it will be a web mini series

I would totally donate money towards your project through Kickstarter.

The only question is that can you legally use Kickstarter for a fan project of an existing property? I am not sure if Fox would like that. I know that they have shut down various AVP mods for games over the years.

Post by: alexpj19 on May 31, 2012, 09:48:37 AM
It should be fine , I've seen people raise money for the fan films ,  it's a none taxable donations, not an investman or sale, plus the final film would be free for everyone, but people that donated to the project would get some goodies like, tshirts, signed DVD posters or something like that, as a thank you gift...  ;) or something like that

Check his channel out! He recently released another short which involves Vikings battling an advanced alien invader. Don't know where he got with pitching to Fox (as I recall, he had to pitch some original stories and stuff), but he must be getting the money for these from somewhere.
