Steve Neill is an artist, visual effects creator, and filmmaker with over 40 years of experience in the film and television industry. In 1971 he interned at the American Zoetrope in San Francisco with Francis Ford Coppola and received much of his filmmaking education there. He moved to Hollywood to pursue his career in 1974. He has since worked on movies such as “Star Trek the Motion Picture,” “Ghost Busters,” “Fright Night” and more. He has appeared as a creature suit actor in many films, commercials and TV shows.
Steve has had lifelong experiences with non-human intelligence starting when he was six years old. He first became aware that memories he thought were unique to him were shared by others when he read “Communion” by Whitley Strieber. Today Steve has created, written, and directed a new dramatic series about his experience, “But Something is There” because he doesn’t know what this intelligence is, only that it is there.
Steve is also well known for his artwork on the subject of what are called “Grey Aliens”. In 1990 he created that now familiar iconic image of the “Grey Alien”
Steve calls them Visitors. He doesn’t know if they are from another planet, parallel dimensions or something we have never thought of. Only that they are there and this experience is shared by millions of people dating back generations in families.
Many of these people never come forward or talk about it because of the stigma and shame brought on by Charlatans and government.
Steve’s artwork has been seen in countless TV shows, movies, books, magazines, and even X-files over the years. Today he continues the art and expresses his experience through it.
Currently he is working on a short film all animated through Virtual software which will allow the audience to experience an encounter with the Visitors. This will take Steve’s popular art to a whole new level of artistic expression.
