For "Improvise", Kuciara worked together with director Ben Hibon and the producers at Axis Animation. He was provided with rough storyboard for the entire animation and his task was to bring those sketches into keyframe quality images that would be then used as lighting and VFX reference, although several keyframes were cut from the final trailer. Additionally, Kuciara had the chance to design the look of large machine that Amanda Ripley uses to distract the Alien. His final task in the project was designing the Motion Tracker that Ripley assembles from a toy robot and scrap parts at the end of a trailer.
