On-set

Michael Fassbender

Lighting inside helmets allowed the actors to be lit in low light levels preventing dazzle from studio lighting when filming. The small carried flashlights on-set weren't very bright and seldom lit the area, the larger ones proved more effective when used in the Alien Temple.

Production

Derelictcraft53

As well as real torches used, production crew made use of dummy torches, these were set props and were carried on the belts of the crew’s EVA suits as they ventured from USCSS Prometheus. Made from a resin and painted, matching the real ones, these items had no parts but would be substituted for real torches in close up shots and when not in use.

Post Production

The actual film set unit is available for purchase from Prop Store, with the actual light units available from purchase awhile ago.

(Flashlight)



Alien: Isolation
With the increased capability of programming and lighting used in the game, torches used by the crew replica the beam of a powerful flashlight.
