Alien vs. Predator (2004) ADI - Queen Alien Puppet Test


In our experience, AvP was one of the better combinations of practical and digital effects. To accomplish the Queen Alien's egg laying chamber scenes, for instance, we created a cable articulated 1/3 scale puppet Queen and a hand puppeted Ovipositor. Digital warriors swarmed her to set her free. We also tested a 1/4 scale Queen rod puppet. This video shows us giving it a first go. At this point it was mostly just wiggling, but you gotta start somewhere! Courtesy of ADI.
