As Expected, Cloverfield Monster Designer Working On Super 8, Talks About Film And More

by Dan Koelsch

Neville Page has become the go-to guy in Hollywood for designing pretty much anything that needs to be rendered in CGI. His specialty has been in creature design (i.e. Cloverfield, Star Trek, Avatar, Piranha 3D), but he is also a concept designer on Tron Legacy and has a star-studded resume. From his list of recent work, you can tell that J.J. Abrams is a fan, so it’s no surprise that Page is back to design…something for Super 8. Watch him talk to Wired Magazine about Super 8 and his other work in the video below.




Page says he’s done a wide range of design work for Super 8, and that he first saw the teaser when they were just finishing editing it. Page watches the “thing” bust out of the train, and he hasn’t even designed it yet (mind-bottling). He also talks about the process of designing organisms for both Abrams and James Cameron.


Page’s background is actually in industrial design, so he was excited to work on Tron Legacy, though the process is similar to designing creatures. Page was actually asked to bring up a cameo in Piranha 3D to James Cameron (who directed Piranha 2), but he was a bit busy with Avatar.
