Ain't It Cool News has some scoop about the release of ROAR! (Cloverfield Overture).

Ain't it Cool News has some info about the status of the ROAR!(Cloverfield Overture) theme song with some confirmation by Michael Giacchino himself. Here is the article:

Greetings! ScoreKeeper here with news straight from the mouth of the monster from CLOVERFIELD (2008).

No, not the gigantic creature that destroyed New York City. I’m talking about the monstrously talented composer Michael Giacchino who penned a groundbreaking overture played during the closing credits of the film. It’s an amazing composition which pays homage to the classic monster movie sound defined by legendary GODZILLA (1954) tunesmith Akira Ifukube.

I belong to a growing body of folk who are dying to get their hands on this piece of music whether it be a digital download via iTunes or a soundtrack CD. A lot of rumors have been flying around and Giacchino himself sorts it all out.

Available for download in this month’s issue of Film Score Monthly Online, there is an on camera interview with Michael Giacchino in which he addresses the unsuspecting demand for the CLOVERFIELD overture and its impending release.

Giacchino reveals, “We’re working on that now…there are a bunch of legal knots that need to be tied…” He admits had they foreseen the demand they could have been “ready months ago”. Nobody suspected there would a market for one piece of music.

Giacchino also reveals that the original composition was thirteen minutes long while the version which ended up in the film was edited down to eleven minutes. He concludes by saying the version they’re going to release will be the full thirteen minute work. He didn’t disclose how the music would be released.

Slusho Update: A weird sword.

From Cloverfield Clues

There is a mysterious update to the Slusho website. A strange symbol, which looks like a sword and a quote balloon, is appearing on the main page, and on the contest page. I checked the site, and don't see any other changes, or anything else hidden in the flash files - so I don't know what to make of it. Let the wild speculation begin...

Check it out yourself.

More Monster Details and effects!

Thanks to Tagruato Blogspot!

Computer Graphics World Magazine has an interview with Tippett Studio's Eric Leven who served as one of Cloverfield's visual effects supervisors. Some select excerpts from the interview:

Q: What was so unique about the monster?

A: The large creature has a couple unique features. One is his skin, which has a translucent, pale quality. Gus Dizon was responsible for the actual creature paint work for us and was constantly looking at creepy reference pictures of translucent sea creatures. The monster also has a huge ape index, meaning his arms are much longer than he is tall, giving him a long reach (the better to destroy stuff with). We also had fun with his feeder arms, which are limbs near his center of mass, which, in theory, he uses to scoop things up and eat with. We used them primarily to bust up his profile and make sure he didn't look like a guy in a suit with just four limbs.

Q: In terms of modeling, what was the most difficult part?

A: The creature designer, Neville Page, built hi-res models in Pixologic's Zbrush. Modelers John Koester and JJ Kang treated it as scanned data, and our first step was to rebuild them as low-res models and displacement maps. When then changed the design slightly here and there for animation purposes, making knuckles larger or hips smaller, for example, so we could get the monster to move the way we needed him to move.

Article on Cloverfield in Cinefex Issue Number 113

Here's the Cinefex link!

Thanks to Tagruato Blogspot.

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.

In addition to posting the Monstrous! ad, Meyemind says about the article:

"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..."
