If you enjoyed David Fincher’s Alien 3, you’ll enjoy seeing some more behind the scenes footage of what went in to creating the special effects for the movie. The video below focuses on a baby Alien called the Bambi Burster. It reminds me just how much I love practical effects and I’m glad they seem to be making a comeback with the new Star Wars movie.
The “Bambi Burster” was cut from the film, but this video shows a test of the unfinished puppet. In this case it looks like they were having a hard time getting the movement down. It is awesome that these guys got to play with all of the cool toys back then.
