Harry Harris

Harry worked as concept lighting designer, and subsequently on the art department at Alien War London in 1993. Items from his collection appeared in the Boxtree book The Aliens Colonial Marines Technical Manual (Lee Brimmicombe-Wood) in 1995.

In 1997 the Hudson costume in the HHACA collection was taken to Rebellion Games where it was worn by a model and filmed on video, to be used as reference for the marine graphics in the forthcoming Aliens vs Predator computer game.

1998 saw Harry provide reference material for GEOmetric Design's planned release of a series of vinyl Colonial Marine figures in 1:8 scale.

The collection has been on public exhibition four times: at Tower Records when Alien³ opened; at the first Alien convention, at Memorabilia '98 at the NEC in Birmingham, England, and at the 1999 Aliens Fan Club Convention in Shepperton, England. The UK magazine Model and Collectors Mart featured a series of Alien collectors' guides, for which Harry consulted. Sci-Fi & Fantasy Models magazine issue 30 carried an interview with him.

The collection was featured on the British TV programme Collectors' Lot, on Friday October 20th 2000.

In his professional capacity Harry started his career as a lighting designer and technician, moving to production sound technician around six years ago.
