The practical effects was a welcome change since quite a few of the alien effects in previous shorts seemed to be mostly cgi.

Alone is my second favourite (Harvest is above). I agree with Hicks that in terms of the storytelling it was the bravest one. It also continues some of themes from Covenant (lone android, fascination with xeno, drawings) that i highly appreciate. Actress did a great job acting taht very emotionly restricted synth. Especially i loved Ash homage.

It's my personal fave, although Specimen and Ore are more complete.

Very loosely based off an early Cobb hammerhead nostromo design.

I mentioned it before, but I really enjoyed seeing the old-fashioned model shots in this. Brought a smile to my face.

Yep thats it, I was even briefly talking to the prop store to let us shoot on the original Nostromo model. But that never materialized.

I loved the model work, I know it doesn't stand up as well when compared to the other shorts with ship shots but we were always a slightly different production.

The model was about 4 feet, absolutely gorgeous too, it probably needed to be about 15 to 20 feet, but I knew we didn't have the cash/resources to make something massive-- we could've gone cgi but I really wanted the process to feel like making a movie in that era, that was important and just plain fun for me. So it wasn't just the final product that was an homage, but the production itself.
