Hi All,

I've been lurking on this website for a long time and this is my first post ever.
My name is Matt and I'm an amateur filmmaker from Oz and a BIG fan of the Alien and Predator franchise.

Short story:
I was sad that the Neill Blomkamp Alien sequel didn't happen.
So.. I made my own Sequel to Aliens.
All by myself. In my tiny apartment during Covid lock down.
Started this in mid 2020.
Literally Zero Budget, just passion and a lot of work.

Anyway, here's the teaser trailer for the short:



I had to be really careful with this teaser trailer as the short film is only 20 min max.

The short is about 80% done, hopefully I will have it ready by the end of the year.

It's a pure FAN FILM and a GIFT to all Alien/Aliens Fans such as yourselves and I hope you will enjoy it.

Cheers

Matt

Cheers fellow Mate!
Was just checking out your Paranoir Productions, you have a good eye and great ideas, nice lighting, surreal mood and great edgy sounds/music!

Evening People, my apologies for zero updates since my first post, I have been rather busy with something called life, so I haven't been able to come on here and show you guys what I have been up too.

I got rather ambitious with my little film, its running time is now 25 minutes and its become way more complex than my original vision, but I am happy to say I'm on track for MID 2022 as right now I have a good rough cut of the film, that I will be working on, sharpening and polishing, until this little beast is nice and shiny by around June/July.

So this is an animation film correct? Fully CGI no actual actors involved?

I think you probably could've cut it down a good five or so minutes but I enjoyed it! Clearly a lot of work went into it. Very nice costume design.

Also 10/10 on that opening title sequence, just beautiful.

Lovely opening.

I spotted a lot of Halo.

Spoiler
And nice use of the original Alien transmission.

No Mate, filmed actor (myself) playing different roles, matte paintings, and some CGI (I'm not very good at 3D)

Yeah was actually longer, trimmed it down to what I thought was about right, I've had people tell me the same, to long, others told me 'to short' wanted more, I don't know who to please :) glad you enjoyed it, it was allot of work, I'm so glad its over lol

Yeah the outfits, they had allot of revisions, some were terrible combos, before I settled for the final look.

Thanks yeah I wanted something reminiscent of the Alien and Aliens openings, kinda combined.

Thank you so much, yeah the opening I'm quite proud of, to the tiny ship showing how insignificant man is in the big black universe etc

Yeah Halo because their were allot of free 3D assets for it, plus wanted like an updated look to the world of Aliens, its like 30 years on, so wanted something different, including the pulse rifle etc even added my own thing the 'Owl' drive  :)

Spoiler
Yeah the transmission, I wanted my take on its origin, I actually have a whole new terrifying take on the Jockeys, might do that in the future, will see  ;)

Are they intended to be brothers or clones?

Well they are 'Clone Bros' ;D kinda like the Clone Troopers of Star Wars Animated Series, they are NOT the alien universe androids like Ash or Bishop or David... they are actually 'Blade Runner' Replicants, One is a Nexus 7 and the other two are Nexus 8's, and just like that universe they are treated rather badly 'Replicants were used Off-world as slave labor, in the hazardous exploration and colonization of other planets', incase you didnt notice, the end phone call... Thats the Tyrell Corporation logo  ;)

I was expecting this to be the case as I watching, but wasn't expecting you to weave it into the story, so I really enjoyed that.
