Neville Page, the creature designer has become the go-to guy in the Hollywood for designing pretty much anything that requires to be rendered in CGI. He has specialty in creature design (i.e. Cloverfield, Star Trek, Avatar, Piranha 3D), but he is also a concept designer on Tron Legacy. Now, he is designing the in the J.J. Abrams/Steven Spielberg collaboration “Super 8”. “Super 8” is categorized as a secret project of J.J. Abrams and so little information is available about the movie including who is concerned in the project.
For the creature of the page Cloverfield monster, he had worked closely with the filmmaker J.J. Abrams. In recent interview with Wired during new San Diego Comic Con, it has been suggested that “Cloverfield” monster designer Neville Page is tapped to pattern “the range, the gamut” for the arriving sci-fi. J.J. Abrams is a fan of Neville and so it is not surprising that Page is back to design.
“Super 8″, written and destined by J.J. Abrams tells the story of bunch of kids who are shooting a movie with a Super 8 camera that notice upon viewing their footage that they have captured what appears to be an alien on film. “Super 8″ is pronounced to give more concentration upon illusory creatures’ prisoner upon movie by oath cinematographers. Shooting of the film is reportedly programmed to start in late September in Weirton, West Virginia. The upcoming movie will probably come out in the summer of 2011.
Neville Page says that he is doing a broad range of design work for Super 8. He first saw the teaser when they were just completing the edition of it. He is extracting the idea of the destructive alien from Abrams’ mind. He said that creature will humiliate from a bumping cargo seen in the teaser trailer. As per Neville, he has not even designed such type of creature.
Actually, Neville designs industrial design as it is the background of his and so he was eager to work on Tron Legacy, however the process is comparable to designing creatures. To introduce a cameo in Piranha 3D, Page was actually asked to James Cameron however, he was a bit busy with Avatar. About the questioning that how he keeps the ideas coming on such varied projects, he replied, “My background, quite frankly, is more ‘Tron’ than it is creature. The process of invention of a helmet or a creature – it’s the same stuff; it’s just different subject matter, really.”
