I've been kept busy for the last 2 weeks with a local production of a play version of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. I was on a team of make-up people and also played a zombie, along with my son. He had an awesome time! We even had a midnight show and it was by far the best - I think many in the audience had hung out at the bar nextdoor to the theater beforehand. They were really vocal - and it was cool.
Here I am making Rob Merickel up with his green base coat. Rob headed up the make-up team and did an awesome job.
I was shooting a scene in my garage today and look what happened. Hmmmm.....
I'm going to be MIA for about a month working on a project I am not allowed to talk about for a while. Be back sometime in November.

Just got back from 5 hours of reshoots for DEADLY PREMONITIONS and my first time working with Morgan Mayhem. She was awesome - a real trooper and horror movie fan so she really "got" what we were trying to do. I think she even had a good time getting all bloody!
The week is going to be crazy with working on the Night of the Living Dead play for the next five nights straight and shooting more DEADLY PREMONITIONS pick-ups and stuff for EATER on Saturday.
The trick is to keep breathing, right?

Tempe Video is going to be putting out a double-feature DVD release of two movies I worked on - THE EVILMAKER and EVILMAKER 2: ABOMINATION. My buddy John Bowker wrote and directed both horror movies; I did camera/lights/sound and co-edited the first movie, shot and lit the last one. I even contributed a piece of music to the first one and helped with sound effects - I fondly remember sitting on the floor of John's house recording him punching a cantelope for just the right sound!
If all goes well, I'll be shooting a sequence for DEADLY PREMONITIONS tomorrow night. Working with someone new but she seems quite cool, so we'll see if she enjoys getting all bloody!
Bought a blonde wig last Friday for Amira to use in some pick-up shots I need for DEADLY PREMONITIONS - she still has the outfit she needs to wear, but her hair is a bit shorter now. Planning to shoot in a wide shot so the wig won't be too noticeable. Gotta keep on pushing to get this thing wrapped up!
