Touring Tom Woodruff’s Amalgamated Dynamics Studio

Amalgamated Dynamics FX Shop (click to see it bigger!)Love it (a few of you) or hate it (most of you), the newest AVP flick gives us an excuse to tap into the minds behind our two favorite monsters. To celebrate the DVD release of “>Aliens vs Predator: Requiem (review), the good people at Fox invited us down to Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc. to check out the creature workshop and interview series FX maestro Tom Woodruff, Jr. And unlike AVP:R, you can actually tell what’s going on in our video!

Click below to see Tom chat about the Predalien design, the challenges of an Alien suit actor, and his support for more stand-alone Alien/Predator films (“So say we all!”). Also be sure to check out our kick-ass creature gallery of pictures we snapped inside the workshop.

Just remember: Aliens are FIERCE!

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Forgot to ask him. Isn’t the facehugger weird? I’ll see him again shortly, so I’ll be sure to ask.

  • Kryten Syxx

    Andrew, did Tom say what the strange facehugger was from? Concept or something that got scrapped from one of the films?

  • Sirand

    Fierceness.
