 What is a Fantasy User Interface?

Fantasy User Interfaces also known as FUIs are those super cool display systems that can be found in movies, tv shows, and computer games. In modern filmmaking, most FUIs are added in post-production but some films still feature on-set displays that the actors can interact with.


 01 - Objective

Create a Fantasy User Interface for an existing character, story, universe, etc.

Artboard 4@2x

02 - Mood Board

The overall mood for this project is fun and playful which is why the mood board is so colorful. I chose images with contrasting colors that stand out like the colors used on Buzz Lightyear.

07 - After Thoughts

Creating this interface for Buzz Lightyear was super fun! I enjoyed taking on his perspective and designing an interface that would be brought to life in a whole other world. In the future, I plan on adding an additional screen that will overlay on top of his arm when he taps on it trying to get it to work. It's only on the screen for a second or two but would make the piece stronger.

Want to chat? I'd love to hear from you.
