Amazing short, and the story, I laughed so hard! xD
Always loved the alien movies, and the moviestyle is just an excellent tribute to it! :smiley:


Excellent work:thumbsup:




Alien == CoffeMachine; HAHAHAA did not see that coming :smiley:



that was amazing!! I want a robot alien coffe machine :slight_smile:


Really nice job guys:thumbsup:

My only crit with this animation is your main character! i think hi dosent fit to this animation very well, this dude look's like bad 3d character from TurboSquid:sad:  

Everything else is amazing a specially ship and alien! i would love to see some wip renders from that cool looking alien:)

im still going to give you guys [b]*****[/b]:thumbsup:


really good work on the whole piece i can only hope i become half as good as you guys.


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



Also was pretty upset that you guys didn’t try and design your own alien design.

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 :wink:


Stunningly good! :applause:


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.


booyah: fair enough :slight_smile: and thx!


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]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.[/spoiler]


I expected that someone or something comes trough that door. When i saw alien i though “oh boy i know where this is going again” But when i realized that it was the coffee machine i was wtf… ???

I start laughing because i really did not expect that. And i think it was genius to implement the alien because we all know that monster. When i saw the alien i expected some typical alien killing action. I did not expect coffee :smiley:


Smart & Funny, excelent work!!

My compliments!!



Thank you all for your comments!

I’d like to make a small credit shoutout to Michael for the detail work he did on several of the shots throughout the film. He did wonders with his paintovers of scenes that had a locked camera - here’s an example:

Cheating - some might say, but isn’t that what it’s all about? :wink: I certainly love what he did for the shots he had the opportunity to run through the photoshop mill.
