Three decades and multiple creature effects later and Los Angeles based Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc. (studioADI) are giving the horror industry perhaps their most memorable monsters yet.
Co-founders and Academy Award winning effects duo Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr. are taking some of their most recognized monsters and making them into fine art.
Gillis and Woodruff are responsible for movie beasts from the Alien and Predator franchises and more recently Andrés Muschietti’s It.
Today they announced the release of art from the The studioADI Collection inspired by their Alien³ and Alien: Resurrection’s Xenomorphs.
But these are not assembly line replicas, they are high quality pieces made by the same studio and artists who worked on the originals: The actual molds used in the production of both films the Alien³ and Alien: Resurrection were used in these exquisite pieces.
“This is the collection designed for fans of these entries into the Alien franchise as well as aficionados of the art of creatures and monsters of iconic pedigree,” said Woodruff.
The studioADI Collection will launch on December 1, 2017 and the art pieces will initially be available exclusively HERE.
“The studioADI collection is our tribute to the films that have been an important part of our legacy as artists. Each piece of art reflects the same detail and passion we poured into the characters when we created the original Alien films,” said Gillis.
Full descriptions and dimensions of all the art will be available December 1.
Some pieces will be available as exclusive limited editions. The pieces will be priced from $250.00 – $4,000.00.
Below are descriptions of two items:
“The Newborn” from Alien: Resurrection was the terrifying mix of human and Alien DNA gone wrong.
This full-scale bust is cast from hand-laid translucent polyester resin from ADI’;s original production molds and is painted to the same exacting specifications by ADI’s painter who painted the character for the original film. The piece measures 30″x20″x40″
“The Queen Alien Embryo” was seen in David Fincher’s Alien³ was nestled next to the beating heart of Ripley, played by Sigourney Weaver. Cast in translucent urethane and hand painted by the same ADI artists who created the piece for the film in 1991. At 7″x 9″; this piece of art is perfect for desktop display.
The studioADI Collection launch on December 1, 2017 will include the following art pieces, which are all hand-crafted and individually made to order:
