Requiem" is an Alberto Martinez Production. It's a Zombie film
being shot in and around New York. SpatCave was hired to do costumes,
props and special effects make-up for the film.
Alberto had sent
me over some drawings about a new zombie that he wanted, one with a
huge gaping maw of a mouth. Tony sculpted it up really quick, I detailed
it, molded it and cast it in foam latex for the big scene. Here we have
Tony, John, Johnny, Heather and I all working together to get the appliance
applied, painted, detailed and ready to be shot.
The basic appliance
is in place, and the mouth works the way it was designed!
Heather gives it
the base coat, then goes in and details in the shading and highlights
Then comes the big
mouth work! We needed to detail her lips and teeth so that they wouldn't
be seen behind the appliance.
Next I installed
the acrylic teeth that I made and stained a few days earlier. And once
it's all in place, she's ready to get bloody!
This was a typical
Zombie like most others used in the film. Tony did the application,
Heather did the base paint and details.
And when put all
together, it's pretty gruesome.
Alberto also wanted
a zombie that had half his face ripped off showing bone underneath.
Our buddy Rich got the honors of being the victim in this case! John
did the application, Heather blended the appliance, and I went in and
gored him up!
Here's the gore,
blood gel and blook being added in.
