Alex Jeager and the ships of First Contact

Alex Jeager was the key concept artist at ILM on ST First Contact. We first met by phone and later in person on one of my trips up to see all the model work going on with the new Enterprise and the Phoenix. Alex was in charge of creating a lot of the designs for the borgification VFX sequences, the Borg Queen, various details on the “E”, the color scheme for the Phoenix, VFX storyboards, and mostly he was the one that designed the Federation Armada that battles the Borg over Earth. Alex back in the days was a pen and marker guy and advancing to computer modeling and photoshop work. on FC he did a bit of both CG and Traditional renderings and here are some samplings of both. As requested here are many of the concepts that didn’t make the final film and a special group of images from my favorite of Alex’s incredible designs, The Akira!!! I am probably the only one that can’t get on Alex’s web page but I can get to his Blog and both links are over in the Blogroll to the right!!! Hope you enjoy all the cool drawings and CG meshes by the incredible Alex Jeager!
