I think I can probably mention this officially now, but Matt Allsopp, the guy who did all of the great early concept art for Kaleidoscope Man has taken some incredible leaps forward in his
career recently. From us he went on to do the concept artwork for the multi million dollar movie, Godzilla, and has just completed the concepts art for Star Wars Ep 7 - The Force
Back in 2004 Matt was a student at Nuneaton College when my nephew Steve (who was an art teacher there) said to me, you just HAVE to meet Matt, his work is exceptional!
Well, indeed it was, and he came to work for me for around 6 months after that, and created hundreds of the spectacular images for the movie. He also designed the DVD cover for my first feature film, Written in Blood.
Unfortunately for me, at the time I was struggling to get Kaleidoscope Man properly financed and I had to close my company. So Matt had to move on.
It wasn't long though before the work he's done on Kaleidoscope Man was seen by the likes of Gareth Edwards who employed him to work on his second movie, Godzilla. And so Matt’s career really took off.
Check out this video Matt and I made back in 2006. It's a little dated, but shows how Matt
created some of his amazing images.
Matt is now back working with Gareth Edwards again on the new Star Wars spin off movie, Rouge 1.
Like me, Matt is a big Star Wars fan, so I know the new movies are in good hand.
Take a look at some of his amazing work he did for Kaleidoscope
Keep up the good work Matt and I look forward to seeing you again at the kaleidoscope Man premiere.
