Robbie mentioned this in the comments a few days ago, but I haven’t had a chance to post about it yet. But it seems that a company called The Third Floor, was tapped by JJ Abrams to do the previsualization animation for the Cloverfield/1-18-08 movie. For those of you that don’t know what previsualization is, it’s basically what you would think it is, computer animations of major f/x scenes done before actual shooting begins so that camera placement and special f/x and stuff like that can be worked out before actually going on set to shoot the scenes. You can see a few different shots from the trailer in their “reel” section of the website, it’s nothing we haven’t seen before so don’t get your hopes up.
