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!

 Post subject: The 'Other' Colony Survivor

I was doing some research on the Colony and when I was doing a frame by frame viewing of one scene (where the APC rolls past the Casino around the corner to park outside South Lock) there appears to be a giant 'man' peeping over the top of the Casino building.

It isn't noticeable on the dvd which is where this poor screenshot came from because of the poorer picture quality, but it shows where to look on the bluray and maybe someone here can do a bluray screengrab. :-)

Amazing! That's probably Nigel Brackley or Jamie Thomas driving the APC model by remote.

Yep, there he is!

I thought the same thing, Harry, with him driving it by remote. Mainly because he appears to be looking at the APC and never looks away at all. And he probably doesn't know he's even in the movie if all he's seen so far are the VHS and DVD releases!

I just heard back from Nigel Brackley after asking whether it was him or Jamie in the shot and he said this;

Quote:
"I can 100% say it is not me as I did not get involved with the driving of the APC when on set.
This would have been done by either Anton Prickett or Brian Cole."

The investigation continues!

Pretty sure the 'hat' is 80's hair ;)

I'm leaning towards the guy in the image being Anton Prickett. Harry has an image of him on his website (see here) http://www.harryharris.com/ds.htm Notice the similar hairstyle and facial structure.
