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. :)

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

Yeah same here cuponator3000, and I can't embed them, they are restricted, unpublished, suspended or password locked perhaps??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?

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

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.

Thanks DK, 

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.
