Recollections of Alien

By Norman Chan

A huge repository of behind-the-scenes photos from the filming of Alien.

Joey clued me into Recollections of Alien, modelmaker Jon Sorenson's new site archiving photos from his work on the production of Ridley Scott's Alien. In addition to personal anecdotes about the building of the movie's spaceship and set miniatures, Sorenson shares a plethora of photos from set, revealing incredible details of his work on the Nostromo, Narcissus, Refinery, and alien Derelict ship models. These photos and will show up in an upcoming e-book that Sorenson plans on releasing later this month, with a limited edition hardcover book to follow.
