Now that you've seen Prometheus, you might be wondering just how it was made. We've already taken a look at aspects of the film's UI and worldbuilding, and now fxguide has published a lengthy article (and half-hour video podcast) detailing some of the key special effects sequences in great depth. With the help of visual effects supervisor Richard Stammers, the piece explores a handful of shots from the film, ranging from something as simple as the titular Prometheus spaceship landing on a planet, to one of the film's more gruesome scenes.
