As explained by Gillis, "We had what we referred to as 'A-B-C-D' makeups, The 'A' makeups were those custom designed for the principal actors, while the 'B' makeups were mix-and-match where we would recombine pieces from other actors to create a new character.
Our 'D' masks—the ones furthest from camera—were overhead slip latex masks incapable of changing expression. The 'C' masks, however, were made of foam latex and could be glued down to get some expression from the characters in the middleground.
Mahan mused, "We would pull the pieces out of the oven, fix them up, paint them and have them ready for pickup that afternoon to be taken to the set.
The pieces were barely cold when Zoltan and his crew applied them. For the final dramatic scene involving Harcourt's demise, the rigged effects were handled in two stages.
The first stage involved a dissolving head and body, while the second stage incorporated a flesh-less arm thrusting out of seawater.
Rosengrant noted, "While the dissolving makeup had to look extreme, it also had to appear realistic within the limits of the alien anatomy Winston's crew had designed.
We wanted to avoid the amorphous 'blob-of-blood' look you see in so many of these slasher and monster pictures. We wanted to be able to see Harcourt's bone structure rather than just the glob hanging off of it.
Elek explained, the crew "dug out chunks from the foam rubber pieces, filled the holes with Bromo Seltzer, then laid the gelatin appliances over the whole thing and colored them so you could not see the holes below.
Once the stuntman, the camera and everyone else was in position, we took a large syringe filled with hot water and injected it into each of the Bromo Seltzer pockets as the camera started rolling.
As the Bromo Seltzer started to fizzle, the hot water began eating its way through the gelatin skin and his face appeared to bubble and melt.
Numerous interior and exterior locations used to suit the needs of the story were filmed in Los Angeles, California. It would look almost as if a group of Koreans or Vietnamese that had moved into the area.
This group would have established their own community. They have their own language, their own signs. The film crew did their own painting and even took a big blank concrete wall and inserted alien graffiti for a scene involving an early physical confrontation between the main characters.
He commented how the crew "came up with individual alphabets and then combined them into certain words like, say, 'enter' and 'open', so that we could repeat them, Occasionally, we'd underline it as though it came from sort of electronic machine, like an IBM report.
It turned out to be such a simple thing once we got it going, but we had to go through a process of 'what is this going to look like?
Certain fictional locations in the film such as the Encounters Club, was filmed at Club Hollywood on Hollywood Boulevard. Two submerged 75 horsepower motors churned to create artificial waves, while separate raised wind machines worked to create the effect of a helicopter hovering over water.
Alternatively, the beverage plant was used as a disguise for a petroleum factory. Unused portions of the facility containing steel tanks were used as an interesting gloomy background.
As scripted by writer Rockne S. O'Bannon , Alien Nation was originally called, Future Tense. The film took some of its concept from the TV series In the Heat of the Night , with science fiction elements integrated in the plot.
It gives us a background but not a lot of detail, Actor Mandy Patinkin's original name for his character was set to be George Jetson. And I was pretty pissed off that there was a screw-up and that the name couldn't be used.
It's a great loss to the piece that we couldn't recover, a great misfortune that couldn't be solved. It would have helped a lot. Not even George, but Jetson.
So in our minds, he's George Jetson. So as far as I'm concerned, anybody who sees the movie, they're watching George Jetson no matter what the hell they call him.
He feels very proud of the fact that he's able to be a cop. I don't have too many Mandy was a riot. I don't know.
It was a lot of silly stuff, creatively. And we had this English director who I wasn't really that fond of.
I mean, nice guy, but It certainly wasn't one of I wouldn't write it down as one of my favorite movies. But it was pretty popular. Cinematographer Adam Greenberg, whose previous film credits included Three Men and a Baby , La Bamba and Near Dark , approached the film with a unique documentary-style technique.

Al S Super Reviewer. Sep 17, Graham Baker's engaging science fiction buddy-cop movie, is a very clever and entertaining motion picture.
It concerns a massive saucer-shaped alien spaceship that lands in the California desert with some , genetically engineered extraterrestrial slave laborers abroad, with no way to leave.
After a quarantine period, the humans who call them "Newcomers," allow the aliens to assimilate into American culture in southern California where they work, play and live along with humans.
But because the Newcomers posses superior intelligence and near superhuman strength, there is a percentage of people in the human community who discriminate against them and call them "Slags.
Walled out of the investigation of his partner's murder directly, he elects to accept the first Newcomer detective, Samuel Francisco, played wonderfully by Mandy Patinkin, Sykes renames him George, and hopes that his new partner will uses his ties in the Newcomer community to lead to his partner's killer.
It is not long before Sykes discovers that is partner's killing was part of a larger conspiracy involving a corrupt Newcomer official, William Harcourt, superbly played by Terence Stamp, and the distribution of a highly addictive drug that use to control the newcomers.
Solid direction by Graham Baker, with impressive cinematography by Adam Greenberg. Followed by a TV series and three made-for-TV movies. Highly Recommended.
