So shooting wrapped last week on Pidge and despite the hours laying on a basement floor with my hand up Pidge’s ass it was awesome and a lot of fun. He turned out really well, and his translucent quality looked great under the lights. I took some test video of a few of his mechanics. The breathing is pump actioned and the eyes are puppet controlled. He also had a puppet controlled lower jaw and 6 points of animatronic movement […]
So the phrase kickstarter has come up a lot in my life lately. I’ve been considering one for the cab company, but this one is for an awesome short that I’m working on. I was approached by Nick Guldner about making an animatronic creature for the short “Pidge” he’s directing. I was intrigued by the story and am always down for making gross blob creatures that eat pigeons… The photo is a work in progress shot of the creature sans […]

This was a show I got to work on in the prosthetic shop of David Scott of Form and Dynamics.

With my strong love of spandex she asked me to be in her “Kickstart My Heart” cover originally done by Motley Crue. The video was shot in two parts with me never meeting my male workout viewer (oh the magic of video editing). The day the video was up online I watched it a dozen times just to see his hilarious performance. He […]
