If you’re looking for high quality movie collectibles, it doesn’t get much better than art pieces crafted/designed by the award winning VFX team responsible for bringing iconic movie characters to life in the first place. So it’s really cool to hear that studioADI, which was founded by Oscar winning VFX artists Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr. back in 1988 are now developing high end art/collectibles for movie lovers to bring into their homes.
They’re kicking off the collection with pieces based on Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection, going so far as to utilize the original creature molds to craft each one (made to order). Orders will begin on December 1st, and while they may be a bit pricey, they’re stunning art pieces that could easily be the center point of any movie collection; especially as they will undoubtedly be adding to the collection with pieces from some of their upcoming films (Jurassic World, IT, Godzilla: King of Monsters) as well.
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 Alien³and 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 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 $250.00 – $4,000.00.
