In 2013 Amazon.com commissioned a bunch of pilots, a couple of them in stop motion. Dark Minions was one that was not picked up unfortunately but it's always fun to work on this stuff. I think it came out looking great and everyone on the team worked their butts off. I did the face painting and the hair. Here's a link to the trailer.
Misha and I are obsessed with Face Off, the special effects make-up show on Syfy. So much so that I sought out a class with the season 4 winner Anthony Kosar all the way in freakin' Chicago. Here is a link to his work and class schedule. I would highly HIGHLY recommend enrolling if you are interested in make-up effects. Anthony couldn't be nicer and he was a great teacher. I took the silicone effects class and learned how to make some grody wounds, working my way up to a full blown zombie make-up. It was sooooo fuuuunnnn. I am really looking forward to taking another class when I have some time off. Here are some pics!
My Badass Superstar husband Misha collaborated with Further Films on a pitch for a stop motion feature called "Death of Me" based on a short story by Cornell Woolrich. This is a maquette of the main character Walter. He was designed by the talented Julian Narino and sculpted by the gifted Mike Murnane. I painted him with the idea of creating a down-on-his-luck, 1930's, Chicagoan working stiff. The pitch ultimately didn't take off but it was really exciting to work on.
In an effort to get more of my work out there, here is more of it! I wish I was a more exciting caption writer. Sorry ppl. Anyway! Here is a spot for Engergizer I worked on with Screen Novelties. They are always a pleasure to work for. Check out their site HERE I did some of the general fabrication and painting on the robot and painted the pilot's handsome face. I don't know how to post a video so here is the LINK Here's a close up of the FACE. I am ashamed by how blurry these pictures are.
