Alien 3 (film)
The EEV from the Sulaco containing the survivors crashed on Fiorina 'Fury' 161, it's sole survivor Ellen Ripley was brought into the Class C Work Correctional Unit, part of the foundry and prison.
George Gibbs and Joss Williams special effects supervisors worked on the effects on set with help from Tom Woodruff Jr. and Alex Gills who were part of ADI which they set up after the film Aliens. As production used a small 1' model Alien the sets were built in proportion with that were the Alien appeared using cut sequences to include actors, other scenes saw Tom Woodruff Jr. wearing a silicon Alien suit and one small CGI shot of the Alien exploding after the sprinkler systems had been activated.
On the set at Pinewood, a giant lead foundry took 12 weeks to construct and put the production way behind. Even with 6 day weeks and 14 hour days, the crew were unable to keep up with the schedule.
Material used most for the sets was wood, which was used for the construction of the Infirmary, Morgue, Furnace and corridors. Surfaces were painted so as to appear as concrete, piston and doors were also painted giving a metal appearance, this they continued through the installation.
Corridor fires were produced on a one third scale model and on the full scale set a flashing light on rails which was pulled along as the flames shot overhead while Ripley and others ducked for cover.
Most foundry and prison filming was on full size sets in the studio with the outside on matte paintings, miniatures and part full size sets including the EEV filming. The Alien 3 set took up 7 sound stages at Pinewood whilst filming, the Leadworks and Blast Furnace sets of the installation were fully practical, built from scratch taking 12 weeks to complete.
The larger foundry filming used a model set of about 20' x 30' constructed on set and supervised by Norman Reynolds production designer, partly made so the director could envisage the whole set and how each part of filming would link together.
The film Alien 3 is set after the film Aliens and because shortly afterwards as they escape, a fire occurs aboard the Sulaco with Ripley's, Hicks', Newt's and Bishop's stasis units being ejected into the EEV.
