Alien Workshop Collage.

This collection of photos and screen shots would be from the making of the Memory Screen video. All the riders are featured - Rob Dyrdek, Duane Pitre, Steve Claar, Thomas Morgan, Scott Conklin, Bo Turner and Neil Blender. However, I'm not seeing any John Pryor. Two of the biggest strengths of the early Alien Workshop were their overall lo - fi aesthetic and intentional obscurity. They created their own identity. I'm sure some of this was done on purpose and some of it happened because they were a new company without a lot of money, but whatever the case might be, the results were amazing.
