Inside Alien

If you're like me you may well occasionally daydream of visiting the sets of the films you love so that you could just wander round and drink it all in. As Alien was filmed over thrity years ago it's quite unlikely that any of us will ever get to accomplish this. Besides which, there was a tightly enforced ban on visitors and photography. Fortunately this didn't stop the legendary Jon Sorenson, Roger Nichols and Dennis Lowe. We owe these gentlemen a debt as the images below are their photographs taken during the production and although some of them are a bit raw I love them because they give a very honest account of what it must have been like to wander round Shepperton and Bray studios whilst everybody got on with making the film. Cheers lads. There's a chance some of these pics were taken by other people that I'm unaware of - if so, please let me know about it...
