Phobos tells the story of Weyland Industries recruitment test, in which Toby Dye’s exploration of fear unfolds. MPC Design worked closely with Toby to develop a series of elegant screen graphics and UI designs in the nine-minute film, based on the visual language from Alien: Covenant and its filmic narrative, yet steeped in the history of the franchise.
Our team were tasked to create a high tech look and feel that reflected Toby’s clean cinematic style, yet still supported each of the characters’ emotional response. With a creative approach that brings emotive depth to design, our team of artists at MPC Design crafted a variety of solutions that reflected each individual’s reaction to the fear test.
Catch a sneak peek of the Phobos film – Alien Covenant's bonus feature with VFX by MPC and graphics by MPC Design - in the trailer below. Full film will be available on Blu–Ray DVD.
