Home Movies Shot On The Set Of ALIEN

In honor of Ridley Scott‘s return to the ALIEN universe he created (side note: my excitement at Prometheus really cannot be accurately measured) today’s post is a look back at that first iconic film from the points of view of the crew who worked on it. What you’ll see above is not your usual polished and prepped “Behind-The-Scenes” piece, but hundreds of individually collected bits of raw footage shot on the set of ALIEN in 1978 and 1979.

Some of it was apparently shot on video, some on 8mm – some bits even look to have come directly from unused film footage. Given that most of it was shot for personal use though, very little of this footage has actually been seen before; and it provides a very intimate and unique approachability to a film many of us have seen dozens of times before.
