Colin Chilvers


Born: England, UK


Colin Chilvers (born 1945) is an English film director and special effects coordinator. He is known for his work on X-Men (2000), Superman (1978) and The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975). Chilvers directed the "Smooth Criminal" segment from Moonwalker. In working with Michael Jackson, Chilvers told Rolling Stone, "I showed Michael a movie that I felt would fit the theme of the piece, The Third Man. He loved the look of it, that sort of film-noir look, so we used that to get the camera man to light it in a similar way." Chilvers won a Special Achievement Academy Award in 1979 for Superman.
