Tis been awhile indeed!!!!

So apparently it's been almost half a year since my last post!? WTFudge!?

I can assure you I've been hard at work in the shop at WCT Productions, I was also working on a huge personal project for the last 2 months of 2010.

At WCT I have been recently working on the final season of Smallville as well as the new AMC show The Killing. The most recent film I've been on is a new horror film being produced by Sam Raimi called Dibbuk Box.

The last few months, actually almost the last half year of 2010 had me busy with some very exciting projects. I did work on Rise of the Apes which lasted 3-4 months, then in September I received an email asking me if I would be interest in doing an aging makeup or series of for an upcoming indie film called 0000 (pronounced zero). After seeing the test footage I immediately said "I'd LOVE too!".

You can see here why I said yes......

So after I agreed to do it I spent most of November creating the 3 stage aging makeup then went to New Mexico in December for the 3 week shoot. The makeup was silicone encapsulated with baldies, it also included contacts I had custom made.

Unfortunately I can't show you any finished makeup or sculptural pics until the film is released, but I do have a teaser update coming soon! It should please the true makeup geeks out there, such as myself!!! Then again I've already seen them, muahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!

Anyways updates soon!

The prosthetics look great! And so does the trailer. I think I'm going to go hunting for it right now. Did you paint contact lenses for it?

Thanks Church! The film is not finished yet, I have no idea if it ever will, hope they get things figured out!

I didn't paint the contacts, they were ordered from 9mm.
