Stunning video released by MPC shows off how some of the terrific effects were created in ‘Prometheus’

Sometimes it is best not to know how visual effects are created as it may spoil the film you have already enjoyed. However, in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, the special effects are so breathtaking they deserve an explanation, even if the actual film failed to answer all its questions. MPC have released a truly stunning, and immensely enjoyable five minute video showing how some of Prometheus’ visual effects were created and designed, and it is truly wonderful to watch. The short video is almost hypnotic with a gorgeous score called “A Planet to Conquer” by Phillipe Rey.

Here is the description for the video:

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
