I had the pleasure to work with some new people just recently. I got offered a cool new script doing some fx makeup which is right up my alley. Shot over a few days and with a small crew we produced an amazing little short film. The priest I used a bald cap and latex and tissue, colouring to make it look singed and burned. The second actor had less burns. I used gelatine and my favourite illustrator pallets. Thanks again to Sarah Iversen my makeup assistant for helping me out once again. Well done to Phil Wittmer Films for putting together a great short film. Till the next one …….

Once again I got to work with Little Red Balloon Films and Troop Productions. Fell was there previous short film. My brief was 5 humans and transform them into cats…. and to be as realistic as possible. My amazing actors were all based in Brisbane whilst I was in Sydney. Many nights were spent researching products, prosthetics, and transforming my own face into different coloured cats. I worked very closely with my two makeup assistants Beck Gardiner and Katrina Anger.
I ended up ordering my prosthetics from North Fur in Canada. Using a combination of prosthetic paints airbrushed and wolfe colours brushed on creating texture. My actors were all so excited for the opportunity to transform. Each actor being in the makeup chair for nearly 3 1/2 hrs. I think they loved every minute as much as the makeup team. A special thanks to Beck and Katrina, I couldn’t have done it without you both. Lauren Brown and Keiran Brice a special thanks for allowing my contribution to the film and for pushing my creative limits even when I felt like I had hit the wall. You pushed me further to be able to deliver past my expectations. This is a very proud moment in my career. Looking forward to the next film……Read more →
