And this. These are the small "childrens" suits made to make the sets look bigger than they actually were. The scene being shot was a forced perpective " insert", shot at the model unit studio after the main shoot at Sheppertonof the astros walking on the Nostromo miniature set that was in the background. Sadly, it was cut from the final cut, but does make it to the docos on the DVD quadrilogy set.
I say sadly because that's me in one of the suits....! The only person on the model unit small enough to get into one! The other astro is wone of the very petite girls from the production office.
After directions I set off walking as though I was on the moon...seemed like the right thing to do (I didn;t know that the gravity was supposed to be similar to earth. Ridley immediatly said CUT, and it was re-shot. I felt a right idiot.
