fxguidetv #181: Neville Page Character Design + fxphd Preview

Neville Page has worked with some of Hollywood’s most successful and respected directors – James Cameron, JJ Abrams, Ridley Scott but to name a few. He has design creatures and characters in Super 8, Tron, Cloverfield, Prometheus – from Romulans to Klingons,-  from Alien babies to Judging on Face Off. – He was the lead character design for Avatar, and quite simply his work is respected worldwide.


An exceptional designer – his life is as complex as it is interesting. His parents were literally in the circus, he studied acting, has taught design in switzerland… nothing about Page is ordinary.

    This was so helpful! Creature design is one of the major aspects of films that truly inspired me to become part of the industry. I can never find any good information on the process. This website is a goldmine for young visual effects artists like myself.

    Thanks for taking the time to share!
