Behind-the-Scenes Footage – JJ Abrams’ Super 8

If watching Adam Rifkin’s killer movie (now a Showtime original series) Look has taught us anything, it’s that cameras are everywhere. Case in point … J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 is filming right now in West Virginia, and of course there was a local on hand with a camera and an itchy YouTube finger!

“I just recently found out that the movie Super 8 was being filmed in my hometown, and we walked down to see the set last night (10/08/10) during filming. There were a lot of military vehicles, soldiers, and 70’s cars. (We even caught a glimpse of one of the stunt cars.) The whole place was lit up by huge stadium lights, and it looked like they were shooting with a camera on a big crane arm. Hope you enjoy.”

So reads the description of the five-and-a-half-minute long behind-the-scenes video which you can dig on below.

J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg’s alien-based terror tale Super 8 stars Kyle Chandler, Elle Fanning, Ron Eldard, AJ Michalka, Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basso, Joel Courtney, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee, and Zach Mills.

I>Super 8 tells the story of a bunch of kids who are shooting a movie with a Super 8 camera that notice upon viewing their footage that they’ve captured what appears to be an alien on film.

Look for more on this one very soon!
