Here is a taste of what’s coming up on Nerdstalking in October. These are a few pages of the original storyboards Ridley Scott created when he got the go-ahead from 20th Century Fox to make Alien. An artist as well as a director with only one feature movie behind him (1977’s The Duelists), Scott drew every major beat in the planned film, including the infamous chestburster scene. He would later bring in illustrators like Ron Cobb from Star Wars and French artist Jean Giraud aka Moebius to flesh out the Alien designs. The rest, as they say, is cinematic history.
