I have to agree with ivanisavich about the story. It felt predictable, either this is a setup for a gag or a set up for what you were trying to be abvious about. Also was pretty upset that you guys didn't try and design your own alien design. I give you props for all your hard work though. It looks absolutely amazing with everything you did

Ehm the whole point was that it was supposed to be recognized as the giger alien. The pilot surrounds himself with homages to great popculture (weyland/yutani logo, OCP logo etc.).
The tongue comming out with the coffee.. wouldnt be nearly as funny if it was an unrecognizeable robot-design we came up with.

When that is said i designed it using virtually no references since its more or less an interpretation.

We also give giger credit

I understand why you would want to do that, and I thought about it but it just felt predictable. Although the robot design was kinda cool.

I guess spoilers are off at this point(I don't mean you, just in general), but I'll use them anyway because it absolutely ruins the short if you have any idea what it's about:

[ SPOILER - Click to reveal ]
Spoiler:
I suppose they could have made their own design and still be successful, but it's also what made it enjoyable for me. Not because I like the Alien design or something, but because it made me GROAN when I saw it. Maybe I'm stupid or something, but it wasn't until the coffee started swarming out of its teeth that it clicked. So I thought it was quite clever. At first i thought it was a ship mate wearing an Alien costume or something, but a coffee maker Alien was classic. It was predictable from a standpoint that you know something is coming...but geesh, what isn't? It's a short, it's obviousl that something is happening.
