I cannot get enough of the Alien series in any form but I cede the title of my favorite film to Blade Runner and its incredible sequel. Science Fiction interests me greatly and I would enjoy having my own Walter around to discuss philosophy and go on adventures with. I’m a student of history and working towards a teaching certificate to teach in the United States and abroad about humans and their collective experiences.
Michael Joseph Kenwell,
Administrator at Studio Yutani, Worlds of Tomorrow and Early Voyages. Contributor at Xenomorphing. A Trek & ALIEN fan since the age of 8, I became a Star Wars fan embracing the Original Trilogy, as the Prequels were released and have always maintained an interest. I am also a fan of several other popular franchises as well such as Babylon 5, Riddick, Starship Troopers, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, ROBOTECH, among other small franchises & films and a fan of Anime & Manga from my youth as well. In the past 10 years, my interest in Blade Runner & ALIEN has piqued with those dystopic franchises fast becoming my favourite Sci-Fi films with The THING franchise as a close runner-up among my favourites. I’m a strong participant of FB groups, I recently created FB group ‘Worlds of Tomorrow’ stresses a multilateral approach to Science Fiction embracing a large variety of SF franchises/worlds.•

Christopher Bustos @coalescedchaos, I’m 26 and I’m a multimedia editor and creator based out of Minneapolis, MN. I work on my own trailers and fan edits and also create digital and traditional art, graphics, and GIFs. I’m the creator of the Prometheus (Chaos Edition) and Alien: Covenant (Chaos Edition) fan edits released in 2018. The first real exposure I had with Alien was in 2005 when I saw the home release of AVP. I then sought out the four original Alien films which instantly captured my soul. Ripley’s battle for survival, her incredible self-sacrifice, and her eventual melding with the star beast itself struck such a personal chord with me. I knew these films were special. My deeply rooted love for the franchise tipped into an obsession with the additions of the Engineers and David 8 to Alien’s lore when the first prequel, Prometheus, was released in 2012. My venture into Alien’s online community began shortly after. Here I am years later still thinking about Alien nearly every single day.

Paul Ripp @wormriderlv223, Editor at Studio Yutani. My love for Alien first started back in the early 90’s when my Dad had me watch the original 1979 film, while mom was out for groceries. While the facehugger, chestburster, and Bigchap captivated my fledgling imagination all those years ago, it was the Space Jockey that fascinated me the most. It is because of this fact that I have taken so quickly to Ridley Scott’s prequels, and why I identify with Prometheus’s heroine Elizabeth Shaw; “I am still searching.”.
