In December I spent some time over at Make-up Effects Lab where we worked on a Jaws sized Great White for the show “Pushing Daisies”. The show was quite popular despite it’s being cancelled
I don’t have pictures of it fully finished since I was only involved in molding and casting the enormous beast. But these do give you an idea of it’s size.

Last year when I moved to Los Angeles the work didn’t come that quickly. The WGA strike had just started and it was traditionally a slow time of year. My first job came in the form of some rapidly mass produced dead chickens for the Jim Carrey flick, “Yes Man”. The work was done at Autonomous FX in Van Nuys.
Now that the movie has been in theaters I thought it was about time I shared a couple of these pictures. They are seen briefly as the main characters visit a poultry processing plant.

So, last year I made a bunch of prop babies foe this film, Timber Falls. I’m not actually credited for it but what can ya do when the production company doesn’t even exist anymore.
When Mike (Josh Randall) and Sheryl (Brianna Brown) stake their tent in the rugged mountains of West Virginia the worst they expect are mosquitoes. What they get is a nightmare.
Sheryl vanishes. Mike wanders through the woods searching on his own and meets a God-fearing woman who says she can help.
Little does Mike know, her help is the last thing he needs. After a string of horrific events, he finds Sheryl bound to a table in a remote cabin cellar. Candles and crucifixes line the walls.
God has something evil planned…
You can find the website here. It’s Really just a link to the movie’s myspace page but you can see the trailer and some clips and pics. The theatrical release is this Friday though I don’t actually know how wide that release is. If you do see it make sure you cheer when you see my deformed little children in their pickled homes.

Last Thursday saw the exciting “Toil & Trouble” Exhibition and Fundraiser at San Francisco’s Space Gallery.
There’s was a beautiful display of the Witches Lair set as well as the Winter Cemetery set. Both created by Art Director extraordinaire Mikie Graham. There’s was also an awesome display of the Witch with Lara Grant’s incredibly rich costume and a new mask that I made just for the show. And of course Sungjib Kim’s photography was front and center to show us all exactly what it was about.
Many artists displayed and sold witch related art as well as other fabulous pieces. Prizes were raffled off and smooches were doled out in the kissing booth.Some much needed attention and funds were garnered for this very deserving little film.
I brought along my latest pickled punk, Marko i(&) Josip
Lara Grant’s dress with my witch mask
And my latest creation, a zombie marionette with poseable arms and fingers
He was displayed in the window for all passers by to view
You can also see Jame’s Sime’s photos here .
I also just discovered that Story About A Witch just acquired a snazzy new website here. So check it out and keep an eye open for more news on this beautiful movie that’s definitely destined for something more.
