- Full Description
Collora began at Stan Winston Studios on Leviathan, and soon became known as a creature designer and sculptor, then moved into concept design, sculpting, storyboarding, art direction and finally directing. Thirteen chapters both interview and closely examine his work as well as Forest Rogers, Peter Konig, Allen Williams (we've handled his sketchbooks), Norman Cabrera, Fancage Didier, Paul Komoda, Andy Bergholtz, Ed Edmunds, Bruce Fuller, David Meng, Chez Zar, etc.
Collora made his directorial debut in 1999 with the short film Solomon Bernstein's Bathroom. 1999 also saw the birth of his toy development studio and independent production company Montauk Films. Collora attracted attention with 2003 short film, Batman: Dead End, intended to act as a director's demonstration reel. After premiering the film at the San Diego Comic Con, it became popular on the Internet and was downloaded more than 600,000 times in the first week.
Director Keven Smith called it "possibly the truest, best Batman movie ever made." Collora filmed a similar project, 2004's World's Finest, with much of the same cast and crew. In 2010, Collora released his first feature film, Hunter Prey.
In 2015 Collora announced that he was working on a new film entitled Shallow Water and was seeking to raise $550,000 via Kickstarter, making it the largest campaign of its type in the horror category. A book about making that film is also new in our stock: The Art of Shallow Water.
Sandy Collora was born in Brooklyn, New York. After freelance assignments in comic books and gaming magazines, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dreams in Hollywood at age 17. He designed the logo for Jurassic Park, and his designs can be seen in Men in Black, Dogma, The Arrival, The Crow, and Predator 2.
