Hi everyone, I'm a Youtube content creator. A few months ago Fox Studios was bringing the Alien Covenant David's Lab set to our location for us to shoot. I pitched all three of my ideas and Fox Studios loved them and wanted to shoot one of my pitches.
However I had to shoot it in 5 days. So within those five days I had to expand on the pitch, develop a story that stays true to the Alien franchise, cast and crew it and shoot it in less than 8 hours.
This video is something I came up with. Of course if I had more time I would have done more. I will be posting two other comedic Alien Covenant videos to my channel and here.
Prologue: the crew of the Harbinger a mercenary ship has intercepted a distress transmission from the remote planet of Origae-6.
The signal came from a young woman named Eve. Eve has offered a reward to the crew of the Harbinger to gather any information about the mysterious disappearance of the crew of the Covenant.
I'm considering expanding it for a stronger lead in and getting to know the characters and a climax battle ending back in the ship. Let me know what you think. Just remember this was all shot in less then 8 hours and written in less than 5 days. :)

A fan film mystery...

I cannot access the page! Google says it may have been suspended. Copyright issues, I assume.
*EDIT* All links take me to my own YouTube channel. My primary Google Account has been expelled from YouTube (haha copyright issues, ironically. I just wanted to post music!), but I logged into a different account and was taken to my channel's homepage
Not a map, an invitation
thanks Ati, I'll fix that up :-)
Yeah same here cuponator3000, and I can't embed them, they are restricted, unpublished, suspended or password locked perhaps??
I can't see yours either Ati. Can you see the OP's videos?
Maybe Region coded?
IRaptus - No, I can't.
IRaptus - I've found it on youtube:
Please embed it in his article. Thx!
got it. Updated in OP
IRaptus - You're welcome.
Nice job FantacularTV_1!
So this was filmed in the actual set of David's Lab was it??
Haha I love the classic Aliens motion tracker phone App!!!
Excellent film FantacularTV_1!. Thank you.
Thanks Iraptus and Ingeniero. Yes that was the actual David's Lab or at least most 80 percent of it. I'd like to make a longer short film. Im just not sure if Fox will allow it. But I'm going to try and take the necessary steps for it.
I also have to comedic films awaiting approval that I'll release on my channel. Same location at Davids Lab
Nicely done FantacularTV_1! Thanks for sharing.
wow it must be so great to have a chance to visit the site and shoot a film for Fox. It's so legit. Happy for you and great work.
FantacularTV_1 you are no lesser director/writer than Cameron or Blomkamp. Fox have to see your short in case they have some doubts about Ridley Scott.

Jones, it was great, stressful writing a 10 page script casting it and crewing out within 5 days and then trying to shoot it all in less than 8 hours.
daliens-Thank you for the compliment. They have my short along with a few others who shot there. Everyone else did some comedy skits (which I also did as well, releasing in a few days) or reviews or reanactments.
My project was an original and cinematic one. From what I read on Internet rumors is the studio possibly wants to reboot the prequels. I'm trying to develop a different story that is an extension of the Alien franchise stories. Maybe a web series with Fox Studios and Youtube Red. Obviously with a bigger budget and bigger cast.
FantacularTV_1 We have had discussions about off shoots as mini series, Netflix shows etc. That would be great if it could happen.
DK-The Alien franchise is such a great franchise. Its one of the few pre-sold franchises, meaning it doesn't have to do too much marketing. Its a build a huge fanbase on its own. Many more stories can be build around it. Hopefully. In the meaning I'm considering to try to expanding it with a Lead in and a final battle in the next few months.
I just saw the making of video and had to share this- VERY COOL!
FantacularTV_1 I have featured this thread. Great work!!
Thanks DK, Thanks IRaptus
I hope you get access to the Space Jockey set!
