Engineer Sacrifice - Alien: Bishop Save The Queen

Synopsis

Michael Bishop is assigned to intercept Ellen Ripley on Fury 161 once the Company is aware of the Queen xenomorph embryo identified in her EEV scan. Inside a Lifeboat module attached to the USCSS Patna, Michael Bishop is to review all relevant material to develop a narrative to convince Ripley to turn herself over to him for recovery of the xenomorph and new material (LV-223 and LV-426 data) has been declassified from the Company archives to assist in his preparation. 

An Engineer in his prime is led by an elder Engineer to his final resting place in the hologram David 8 is watching on LV-223, then again watched decades later by Michael Bishop in preparation for his negotiation with Ellen Ripley.

Alien: Bishop Save the Queen is a non-commercial, unofficial, fan-made film.

There is so much work in these shorts, Ingeniero, congratulations! Or it is a full movie?

How long is it going to be?

 Ingeniero Nice work! I was wondering too. Is there a larger piece coming this spring?

Ingeniero

Thank you Ati.

I wanted to do a couple of these shorts just to tie into smaller segments reviewed by Michael Bishop and the two Bishop APs that are with him. I'm not a sci-fi writer, toy maker, nor graphics artist (obvious)...so the end product with be edited down to the best I can do at minimal animation and stills alongside the captured film portions. I still have a couple of planets to cover events on Michael Bishop's trip (LV-426 and Fury 161) before he arrives with the Yutani Commandos. 

Motivation

The reason for telling the story from my end is that I believe I have a reasonable explanation regarding Bishop's involvement in how the eggs got on the Sulaco EEV without miracles or multiple Bishop trips from the surface.

That will be the last part, Act II, when Michael Bishop starts asking the broken Bishop about his activities. Outside of the short pieces on LV-223, LV-426, Planet 4/Paradise, and Fiorina/Fury 161, the end two act film should be about 20 minutes.

The NECA figures I'm using in the film are:

NECA Alien 3 Scale Series 8 Dog Alien Brown

NECA Aliens Scale Series 8 Weyland Yutani Commando

NECA Aliens Series 3 Bishop

NECA Aliens Scale Series 8 Ripley

NECA Prometheus Series 4 the Lost Wave Fifield 

NECA Prometheus Series 4 the Lost Wave Vickers

NECA Prometheus Series 4 the Lost Wave Shaw 

NECA Prometheus Series 2 David 8

NECA Prometheus Series 3 - Engineer Pressure Suit holographic Form

NECA Prometheus Holographic Engineer (Chair Suit) Series 3

NECA Prometheus Series 1 Pressure Suit Engineer 

NECA Prometheus - Engineer (Chair Suit)

NECA Prometheus Trilobite and (Battle-Damaged) Engineer 

NECA Prometheus - Deacon

NECA Aliens - Xenomorph Queen

NECA Alien - Dallas

NECA Alien - Lambert

NECA Alien - Kane

Secret Guest Star

I used the battle damaged Engineer's face for the Sacrificial Engineer because one side was burnt black and matched the pathogen lines on the Engineer's skin. The final product will have some differences but I wanted the NECA to stand out and I tried to mask or erase any regular face shown in the clips or stills.

Yes sir dk...this spring. Thank you for the compliment.

Ingeniero Explaining the Egg for the Alien 3 intro! The age old question- cannot wait!!!

Ingeniero

Jan-11-2018 2:56 PM

And my wife provided support and got me a loader from Aliens for Christmas dk...so I'll probably write a whole story about loaders.

Ingeniero

Jan-11-2018 2:59 PM

I can't believe I forgot to write above that NECA Frost, Hudson, Hicks, Vasquez, and Burke are also in Alien: Bishop Save the Queen. And the weapons package.

dk

Jan-11-2018 2:59 PM

That is quite the cast and list. There may be some hints in there. The only thing on that list I have, and is my favorite, is the NECA Alien 3 Scale Series 8 Dog Alien Brown.

Ingeniero

My budget is limited and I could not afford real actors.

Ingeniero

Jan-11-2018 3:10 PM

Ha. dk, I use the dog alien the most but I will also use the xenomorph from LV-426 and the Queen.

I didn't use the neomorph nor protomorph from Planet 4/Paradise because I'm not sure where the Covenant ends up and Michael Bishop is limited to seeing segments of David's helmet feed until it cut out on LV-223 in late 2093. I'm building an extended segment in the orrery with David learning of the Engineer's ways and thats why I included the Sacrificial Engineer piece and limited views of Planet 4/Paradise.

I also wanted to build ending credits similar to Dune that shows each NECA character.

Ingeniero Nice! I was wondering if the entire cast would be shown at the end. I am wondering: are the trailers thus far from actual finished scenes? That is some crazy mad time you must put into this.

Ati

Jan-11-2018 3:34 PM

'That is some crazy mad time you must put into this.'

Exactly!

Ingeniero

Jan-11-2018 3:37 PM

No, not finished scenes dk.

I notice things I need to change each time I watch both trailers but before that I wanted a little animation on each of the stills in the final product to have reasonable looking transitions for movement of the NECA portions and make it look better overall. 

Ingeniero

Jan-11-2018 3:39 PM

Atidk...yes it has taken a little time but Alien news is very slow and they keep making Lego movies opposed to NECA Alien movies.

dk

Jan-11-2018 3:39 PM

Is Bishop Save the Queen a nod of sorts to the UK or Sex Pistols song God Save the Queen?

Ingeniero

Jan-11-2018 3:50 PM

I definitely thought of that dk but wanted to play off the chess piece's names of Bishop and the Queen.

I saw the Sex Pistols with Rotten singing in the 90's.

Nice reference and pretty classy.

Thanks for this ;)

I Appreciate the effort, some of the sound effects made me chuckle though ;)

Most welcome. So you liked the bell ring of the cup hitting stone BigDave

All of the sound effects were from iMovie so it was as close as I could get. I'm not trying to be a single person Pixar so it will look low budget but hopefully the writing will make up for that. And evolving skills towards the final product...pretty easy to see I'm learning as I go on the graphics end.

I had to use a general "roar" in the sound effects because iMovie didn't have "Engineer scream from mote swarm infection" in the selection criteria. 

Ingeniero

Jan-12-2018 7:59 AM

Thank you dk.

Yes Ati.

I'm afraid they will form an Artificial Actor's Guild and start demanding more rights and privileges for their participation in my film. I have to admit that I don't know what I'd do if they went on strike. Our relationship has been rather calm up to this point. Yes, not without a couple of arguments and clarifications but my relationship with the Artificial Actors has been calm overall.
