Article on Cloverfield in Cinefex Issue Number 113


In Cloverfield, New Yorkers flee for their lives as a colossal beast of unknown origin destroys the city. Conceived by J.J. Abrams and directed by Matt Reeves, the film put a new spin on the rampaging-monster genre by having all of the action filtered through the shaky lens of a bystander’s handheld camcorder. Visual effects supervisors Kevin Blank, Eric Leven and Michael Ellis teamed with special effects coordinator David Waine to oversee the guerrilla-style shoot, while Tippett Studio and Double Negative handled environmental and creature effects.

I don't have my copy yet, but I flipped though it, nice spread on Spiderwick, and Cloverfield went from a an Overview to a nice feature as well! I saw a couple shots of mine in there from Cloverfield though, more to come once I get my copy...
