Effectively Speaking – Alien and Martin Bower Interview – NEOZAZ


I first encountered Eric Moore, and his prolifically fulsome knowledge of Alien lore, when he began posting same on the Facebook page for The Alien Minute Podcast.

He shared photos from the miniature sets, props, and other behind-the-scenes gems that enhanced my enjoyment of the podcast as John and Mitch covered the film.

Eric is a fan who not only <ahem> speaks effectively about the movie, he is an accomplished model-maker.  See for yourself:  he posted a photo of his Nostromo laser pistol recently on the TAMP’s newsfeed recently.  (To see it, you should visit and request to join the group.)

He has his own podcast, Effectively Speaking, which recently covered the topic of Nostromo.  It includes visual effects artists Andrew Glazebrook, (Hyperdrive, The 25th Reich, Gingerbreed) and Martin Bower (Alien, Outland, Space: 1999).

If you’re into behind-the-scenes information on the topic, you’re going to love it.  I enjoy seeing (or should that be ‘hearing’) other fans finding original ways to bring a fresh look at an old favorite.

(And thanks, Eric, for bringing a more Nostromo trivia to the mix.)

P.S.  And while you’re there, you’ll find other interesting ‘casts that Eric has produced in the past four months.  Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Battlestar Galactica
  • Silent Running
  • Space: 1999‘s ‘Dragon’s Domain’ (probably my favorite 1999 episode!)
  • Return of the Jedi
  • Forbidden Planet
  • Quatermass
  • and many others

Look to the Effectively Speaking Facebook page for photos mentioned in the ‘casts.
