The 1979 flying puppies


Posted Mar-05-2013 10:00 AM

The flying puppies from Prometheus technically called: [b]Topography “Pups”[/b], were conceived in 1979 by Ridley Scott in ALIEN. Apparently due the film technology of that time was not possible. For more information: [url=]The Flying Mice:[/url] [i]Ridley Scott originally wanted to have small flying objects that would fly up and down corridors and fix any problems. These flying objects were to be called Mice.[/i] [i][/i] [i]I wanted to have small flying objects, like sensors, which flew up and down the corridors. They would find a problem, stop by a computer bank and fix it like little handymen. I wanted to call them Mice. At the beginning of the film they would be the only things that were alive on the ship. We d have shot a long empty corridor so you d hear them coming before you actually saw them. Then WHOOSH! It would pass by the camera, going through the corridor. I think FOX felt it was too much int he direction of SF, and we dropped it.[/i] [b]- Ridley Scott, Fantastic Films -- © 1979 James Delson[/b]

oooooooo, thats intersting! that might have literally blown my mind if i saw that in a movie from 1979. wowzers!

Not a map, an invotation

Thats why we see them in Prometheus because they did seem like something that they tried to do at one point. George Lucas had the same issue when he was thinking about making Episode 1-3 back in the '70s but couldnt, due to money and technology at the time. This franchise is way cooler than any Star Wars that has ever come out.

The Anunnaki were on the earth in those days--and also afterward--when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, mighty men of high reno

cool thing
