2009 Aging, Robots and Hitler

There were two projects that was more important than others this year.
Working for Pernilla August in Beyond was amazing but also being able to make two cut throat prosthetics in just a few hours for a TV series.
In Pernilla August debut as a director "Beyond" 2010,  I was called in to age the Mother in the film. Here Outi Mäenpää is receving her Guldbagge (Swedish Oscar) for her performance in Beyond.

In this film Hitler never died in the bunker so they needed me to make an old Hitler in various settings. This is the actor without any makeup.
The film sequenses were all black and white so the makeup is unusually strong for a film but needed to be like this to show corretcly. Makeup adjusted to look good in black and white.

When the new Star Trek film had its premiere theys guys wanted to look klingon. It was my pleasure to help them! 2009-11 2009-12 I made a pregnant belly for the Swedish film "the Wedding photographer".
A pregnant belly made for the Swedish film "the Wedding photographer". Here my wife is posing with it since she was the original for it. To be able to put the belly that gave you your first child three years later is something that most mothers never get to do. This was lighter and there was no intence pain to take it off as it was with the original one. 2009-25 Check out asylum626.com for the head I made. It is even in the trailer! This head was made for Asylum 626 An ad campaign for Doritos which is very cool! If you haven't seen it check it out. Never seen anything like it before.

Without hair Pictures from the shoot in Lithuania. Pictures from the shoot in Lithuania. Got some emergency cut throats for this film. They called on saturday night when I was out having a meal and needed to shoot monday morning at 7 am! Fun fun! Amanda Ooms got her throat cut for a dream sequence. A nice clean cut with no blood to hide anything. With the time I was given and not able to meet the actress until the same morning I was very pleased with the results.

Shanaz005 An effect that didn't make the film was a hand that got three fingers blown of with a shotgun. Here it is not glued down and Jack is wondering what the hell Daddy is doing. This effect was shoot but can hardly be seen in the film. Half the head was dug down in the ground and this was put on his head to make it look like half the head was missing. This makeup on my wife, Heather was one of the first makeups I have done only for fun in years. The reason for me to do it was to test a new urethane moulding tech that I wanted to do a tutorial on. Check it out under the tutorials menu. 2009-35 2009-36 Testing some silicone prosthetics with baldies edges. A cake made fully in silicone for a theatre play.
Yummy! A silicone transfer Another silicone transfer I have been playing around with some tattoo transfers recently to make wounds and scrapes. Fun and useful! And of course tattoos too Tattoo transfer Tattoo transfer Tattoo transfer Silicone transfer
This was a very stylized dance performance and I got to make some fun robotic style makeups. First of course a test on myself. To get the right shine we airbrushed them with three layers of different makeups and applied a shimmering powder in between. Here you can see Erik Stålberg Jonas Sjöquist as the bad boy with a lot of tattoos and scarifications. The scars look quite red on the pictures but we had to compensate for the low light on stage.
