Film and FX Updates...

On June 9, 2008, the independent horror film SATANIC PANIC wraps up production with its final day of shooting. The silicone creature suit that I designed back in 2006 and created this year for the film was applied to actor Nikki Taylor Melton and filmed. The original creature designs and finished silicone suit cannot be displayed until the release of the film, but the FX props I created (satanic ritual dagger and sacrificial amimals) can be seen on my website.

On May 22, 2008, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull came out in theaters. Though uncredited, last summer I worked the Skeletons, Bones, Mummies, Snake, Crystal Skull, & the "Special" Skeletons at the end of the film while interning at Stan Winston Studio. I even helped take a life-cast of the main Russian General's back, from which a fiberglass pulling back-plate was made to protect the actor's back in the "ant" scene.
