The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

My 5 year old really wanted to dress up like a Colonial Marine so we busted out the props and the green screen!

Thank you very much! The cockpit is actually a closet I decked out as a spaceship for the kids for Christmas and the hallway where the gunfight happens connects my house to my garage. The final hallway was just some Tupperware bin lids taped together to make a miniature set. We had a lot of fun!

Thanks guys! We literally spent an afternoon on this, but there is some context. First, we had a lot of the set dressing and models from film (and hopefully someday miniseries) Last Flight of the Freya 7:

But also my older son and I made an Alien Day promo video for our local comic shop:

https://youtu.be/e2mMNZp8woI

Not being old enough to help on that must have been eating at my younger son so he pretty much wanted a redo.

Bigbisont and Red_2: MAKE VIDEOS! It is so much fun.

Knoxville: please feel free to share any of these videos with credit. ;)

Years from now, at family reunions, watching the video that you made together will be a tradition, and a great memory for you all as well. Well done, very well done! :)
