You're right in that they meet the brief - I'd read the brief a while ago and thought they were more suggestions/prompts rather than hard guidelines.
Yeah, "working class" and "female lead" are in the suggestions, not the requirements -- but they clearly favoured those stories that met those suggestions. :-\

Interestingly, the brief also contained story prompts, which basically all of these stories have followed so far. So I think between their "suggestions" and their "prompts", they actually had a fairly clear idea of what stories they wanted for these shorts and favoured those ideas which met those expectations.

Yeah, it is definitely sounding like the "Suggestions" were more in the vein of "We suggest you use these ideas if you want us to pick your script."

Pretty good...but why is every one of those shorts going for the slow-burn of Alien 1?
Seems nobody had the balls yet to make an action oriented one to honor Aliens which is disappointing to be honest.

Possibly because these films are made to celebrate Alien which is turning 40 and not Aliens which isn't.

Yeah, finally a short where we see a full grown alien. Good acting too, and a somewhat believable script. Dug that soundtrack too, got a kind of Vangelis Blade Runner vibe to it. Imo the best one yet.

My list so far would be:

1. Ore
2. Specimen
3. Night Shift
4. Containment

It's storytelling 101 to have an every man/woman character for the audience to relate to.  The shorts are supposed to celebrate Alien turning 40, so a blue collar female lead makes sense

This was a close runner up to Specimen, which was perfect! This one had some acting issues, but top notch execution for the most part, a bit unoriginal. Bonus points for bringing in a full grown xeno! :)

This was almost as good as that short film Randy pawned off as Colonial Marines.  ;D

The cliche antagonist, the elevator contrivance and Direction is the reason Specimen's superior, although Ore is excellent.
Also the Alien designs are weak, but the facility itself is fantastic.

Best one so far.

I’m a tad bummed about the open ending, but everything else was completely on point.

10/10
