For 30 years, Los Angeles based Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc. (studioADI) has been the premier Creature Effects studio in the motion picture business. studioADI was co-founded by the Academy Award-winning duo of Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr. in 1988. The team has been responsible for 3 decades of iconic Creature Characters from the Alien and Predator franchises to the recent smash hit horror film IT. Today Woodruff and Gillis announced The studioADI Collection, art inspired by their iconic creations from Alien³ and Alien: Resurrection.
The studioADI Collection consists of high-quality fine art pieces which are not mere collectibles replicated by factory workers. These are hand-crafted works of art created by the same studio and artists who originally created them for the films, from the actual molds used in the production of the history-making films Alien³ and Alien: Resurrection.
“This is the collection designed for fans of these entries into the Alien franchise as well as aficionados of the art of creatures and monsters of iconic pedigree,” said Woodruff.
The studioADI Collection will launch on December 1, 2017, and the art pieces will initially be available exclusively at http://studioadi.bigcartel.com/category/art
“The studioADI collection is our tribute to the films that have been an important part of our legacy as artists. Each piece of art reflects the same detail and passion we poured into the characters when we created the original Alien films,” said Gillis.
Full descriptions and dimensions of all the art will be available December 1. Some pieces will be available as exclusive limited editions. The pieces will be priced from $250 – $4,000.
Below are descriptions of two items:
“The Newborn” from Alien: Resurrection was the terrifying mix of human and Alien DNA gone wrong. This Full-Scale Bust is cast from hand-laid translucent polyester resin from ADI’s original production molds and is painted to the same exacting specifications by ADI’s painter who painted the character for the original film.
