Mark Coleran has designed many of the user interfaces seen in films, from Blade II to Children of Men. His delicate balance between futuristic fantasy and present familiarity is astounding.
It’s easy to do overdramatic access denied screens, but Coleran’s work is eye catching, understandable and even clever. In an unused interface for Children of Men, a “coverflow” view like iTunes is shown. Before iTunes even introduced coverflow.
You should really see some of his work.
He’s also a designer for real life UI. Gridiron Flow looks like the one thing that would make any Creative Director, Designer, or Art Director’s life easier. In a simple overview you see all files related to a project and how they relate to each other.
