Goblins, Ghosts and Old-age makeup

Well it’s darn near Halloween 2007 and people are scrambling for
what this year’s costume is going to be. I realize we’re just 10 days
away, but I wanted to plug an old friend’s monster mask business
in the Bay Area – Chuck Jarman and Bump In The Night Productions.

He, his wife and his crew are all probably swamped right now, but I
wanted to get the word out. Just so happens that this plug for Chuck’s
work came along as I was reminiscing while updating my website
SCULPTURE page. I put up some quicktime clips of Chuck and long-time
friend Dan Morgan and I creating an old-age makeup back in the late
1990s. Chuck also assisted me on “The Link” alien makeup project.
These next screen grabs, like the one of Chuck above are samplings of those clips
from the archives.

That's me applying makeup

Dan Morgan is a stage actor/comedian and quite an FX makeup technician
himself and that’s him under the foam latex. The clips are a really cool
glimpse of the work we used to do in our earlier careers. Hope you’ll enjoy.
