Monster Makeup Madness

This past Sunday we pulled a crazy twelve hour shoot wherein we tortured cast and crew not only with numerous takes, but also mucho monster makeup. You can see some pics here of the great work that a team of people pulled off the other night. The scenes all involve our heroine struggling to come to grips with her shapechanging, her identity and also why the heck she was on-set until 5 am. I sculpted the face and spikes, along with Christine who also  painted them. The very talented Meraly Lopez applied them. Virginia Logan brought the makeup to life! It was a fantastic time and the makeup looked great. We want to bring as much high-level prosthetic work to the film as possible. More pictures of our great cast, including Peter Alexandrou and Kate Britton, to follow!

    • Hi Thomas,

      Thanks for the great comments. Nice to meet you.
      The film’s almost done. Can’t believe it’s taking so long. I just have to touch up some animation, have the composer finish the rest of the music and then color correct the film. I don’t expect it to take that long. In the meantime, I’ve written like half a dozen scripts! Your art look very good, by the way.

      Do you have

      • Your’e welcome. Pleasure meeting you. I must have over 30 ideas written down as loglines and nutshell synopses but working on only two scripts at the moment; one for a gothic horror feature and the other for a horror thriller short film. Oh, Thanks very much!
