Alien: Ore is one of six short films produced to celebrate the 40th anniversary of 1979’s Alien film.
As a hard-working miner of a planet mining colony, Lorraine longs to make a better life for her daughter and grandchildren. When her shift uncovers the death of a fellow miner under mysterious circumstances, Lorraine is forced to choose between escape or defying management orders and facing her fears to fight for the safety of her family.
Among other effects, Image Engine artists built and animated the alien asset in Alien: Ore using the design and performance in the original films as inspiration.
