5.0 out of 5 stars HR Giger's Film Design 13 Mar 2013
By Faustus
Much of the content will already be well known to fans of Giger's work (Dune, Poltergeist II, etc) but knowing about a thing and exploring the genesis of a thing are very different experiences.

It covers a wide range, from short films, lengthy personal projects, to music videos and even furniture building. But the real treasure is when it goes into detail about the films that didn't make it past the design stage. There's one in particular that has the potential to equal David Cronenberg at his most bizarre; it's both repulsive and tantalising in equal measure.

There's a lot of space devoted to his involvement with the Alien franchise. The film was his most commercially successful, and is the one that stuck most faithfully to his designs.

You loved Aliens,You loved Species,but you want to find out more.....more.....well now you can,that is the reason this book is here,It includes a lot of input from H.R.Giger himself as well as a lot of the film directors hes worked with,Ridley Scott (Director of Aliens) provides an intro that places you back into that eerie atmosphere that you encountered on the first screening off Aliens,And once you have read that you turn the page & are astounded by how close the detail was tranferred from Gigers paintings into the films!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Meet the Master 6 April 2007
By Priscilla V. Rooyen - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
H.R. Giger studied architecture before he decided he wanted to be a full time artist. But his backround helped him in his art as you will see. Everything he draws, paint or build is perfect. And his airbrush technique is so unique, he should make a DVD on how he does it! In this book you can read how he got his ideas for movies like Poltergeist, Alien and Species. And also other foreign and unrealized movies. (I think his Dune would have brought exciting nightmares!)

My brother has always loved the Alien movie series, and anything to do with it. He was stoked about this book. The condition of the item was as described, and the shipping methods were eco friendly and a good fit/good protection for the book. Seller reccommended.
