It's amazing to see how creative people can be when it comes to film-making, all it takes is passion, a little bit of money and lots of dedication. Short films and fan films continue to grow in popularity and I don't see any sign of slowing. Alien: Special Order, a fan film from Louis Thomann, is a shining example of what can be done if you put your heart and effort into a project! Check it out below and let us know what you think!
“Alien: Special Order” is French filmmaker Louis Thomann‘s love letter to the Alien films, which took two years to assemble. The premise is simple: “Bring back life form. Priority One. All other priorities rescinded.” The impact: beyond unprecedented. Mixing elements of found footage, “Alien: Special Order” is breathtaking, shocking, violent, intense, and nothing short of spectacular.
“This is a fan film based on the Alien movies that I started to develop almost two years ago all alone, and was created on spare time only,” said Thomann. “Without any budget, shot the film in real conditions was something that would be impossible to achieve regarding the need of the scenery that took place in Alien, and so, I’ve decided to develop it through the Source Filmmaker, a video game engine created by Valve Software, that allowed me to create an animation film in real time.”
