9780972667661: AVP: Alien vs. Predator: The Creature Effects of ADI

Foreword by Lance Henriksen

In 1979, Ridley Scott introduced moviegoers to a new definition of fear and horror with his sci-fi classic, Alien. To coincide with the release of AVP, special effects gurus Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr. opened the doors of their Academy Award-winning creature shop, Amalgamated Dynamics Inc. (A.D.I.), to invite all to a behind-the-scenes journey, as they once more breathe life into the characters that have been scaring audiences for over two decades. Different from many "making of" books, it focuses exclusively on the creature effects of AVP; what it takes to create some of sci-fi's baddest baddies. It follows Gillis and Woodruff and their talented crew of over 100 artists and technicians throughout the design, sculpting, fabrication, and finishing processes. The story continues on location in Prague where, as the cameras roll, their creations truly come to life.

About the Author:

Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr are the co-founders of ADI: Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc. Having provided the Alien Creature effects for both Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection (Gillis and Woodruff also worked for Stan Winston on Aliens), ADI were asked to handle the Creature Effects for AVP. Woodruff also suited up again to resume his role as chief Alien performer for the new movie.

Review:

Film Review Magazine, January 2005: "...this lavishly produced profile will not dissapoint fans of either creature."
