E.T meets its maker, Carlo Rambaldi!

Carlo Rambaldi (September 15, 1925 – August 10, 2012) was an Italian special effects artist who is most famous for designing the title character of the film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) and the mechanical head-effects for the creature in Alien (1979) (for both Rambaldi won an Oscar). Here is E.T meeting his maker. Unknown photographer, if you know who, do contact me.

A creature named “Alien”

Surely one of the most famous “faces” in cinema, the alien from the “Alien” franchise (1979) by Ridley Scott was created by Swiss artist, sculptor, painter and set designer Hans Ruedi Giger (1940 – ).

Using recurrent themes in his work such as body mutilation, nightmares and surrealism, Giger (along with creature-maker Carlo Rambaldi)  was the genius behind the famous film monster, inspired by his Necronomicon illustrations.
He also did the the Ghost train in the dream sequence in “Species” (1995). His work extends to music, to all KoRn fans, he is behind the famous microphone stand of the vocalist Jonathan Davis and the brilliant Celtic Frost cover “To Mega Therion” (1985) depicting the Jesus slingshot.

Here are photos of Giger with his beloved monster, all rights go to H.R Giger. (www.hrgiger.com). I am not the author of these images.

Visually stunning and poetic.
