Ridley Scott approached SOAS, University of London, in 2011 to find experts who could help create a new language for the film. Anil Biltoo from SOAS' Language Centre worked to create the language, as well as the alien script, which can be seen throughout. Anil Biltoo can be seen briefly in a scene with Michael Fassbender. Other SOAS staff members appear briefly and are credited, including Wambui Kunya, Sonam Dugdak, Shin-Ichiro Okajima, Kay Rienjang, Zed Sevcikova, and Reynir Thor Eggertsson.
When David is talking with Charlie in the bar/lounge, David has the drop of black liquid on his right index finger intending to place it in Charlie's drink. But during the lead time, his finger touches other objects such as the glass, bottle and the metal billiard ball. However, it is plain to see that David always keeps his right index finger extended throughout the scene and the tip of it (where the black liquid drop is) does not come into contact with the billiard ball, glass or the bottle. The first contact the tip of his finger makes is Charlie's drink.
