Short Films – The animated short (12:06) fan film “Alien Infinity” is set in the world of Alien. It is not the best animation, but it is not bad. It was published to YouTube by creator Darkus Marque in August of 2015. The synopsis:
A group is sent to the colony on Beta Terran when all communications were lost. When the six descend on a drop ship all they find is death and . . . Aliens.
I found it impressive that Marque made this on his own. As he says:
I made this between January 2015 and August 2015, on and off. Sometimes I’d go weeks without working on it, and sometimes I’d go weeks when all I seemed to do was work on it.
I made it on my mid-range laptop using, mainly, Cinema 4d r15 and Adobe After Effects.
It should be stressed that my work on this film was NOT primarily as modeller. Most of the models used in this film were resourced for free from around the internet. You’d be amazed and some of the brilliant stuff put out there by some very skilled individuals.
This isn’t a great movie, but considering it was created by one person, I think it is impressive. If you are a fan of the Alien movies, you will enjoy it. The film is only ‘Part 1’ of the story, so it simply whets the appetite for more to come.
