The short is coming together. Shooting dates are set. Locations are secured. The script is polished. A slick FX shop has come on board to help out with the effects. And just this week, I secured the talents of a really gifted illustrator for the design of the aliens and their various machines.

His name is Alex Ruiz and here’s a sample of his work.

I’m currently reading The Making Of Star Wars, which I highly recommend. In it, some of the people involved with the film talk about how Ralph McQuarrie’s concept sketches really informed everyone’s vision of what the movie would look and feel like. Looking at Alex’s work, I’m starting to understand what they were talking about.
