AvPGalaxy has posted an interview with puppeteer Morris Chapdelaine who is currently working on Alien vs. Predator 2. He gives some insight into the creatures that are featured in AvP sequel that arrives in theatres on December 21, 2007.
Here is a snippet from the interview:
AvPGalaxy - You are the puppeteer for Alien vs. Predator 2. What exactly does that entail?
Morris Chapdelaine - Actually there are several puppeteers for AVP2. The creatures required many talented individuals to work together to bring them to life and I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to work on such an exciting project! As far as what being a puppeteer entailed on this project the list is quite long. I was closely involved with a team of professional puppeteers and film technicians working together on AVP2. From suit work and sfx make-up to hand, rod, cable, animatronics and hydraulic puppeteering- we did it all and often all together.
AvPGalaxy - Not many details from behind the scenes of AvP2 have emerged, but we know from Anderson's first film that there's been Predator face puppets, Face-Huggers puppets and even a life-size Alien. Which of those did you get a chance to work on in AvP2, if any?
Morris Chapdelaine - I was lucky enough to work on all of the above and MORE on AVP2. Without giving too much away- there was certainly a large variety of creature work in this film! I think the fans will go nuts when they see what we have in store for them.
