We shot one of those “turn off your cell phone or ____ will take you out” bumpers for Alamo Drafthouse last October, and I designed and applied the key makeup for the main zombie in the shoot. Anna Hanks, a friend and local writer, took a great set of reference photos and posted them to her Facebook page here .
We started at 6 AM and I was assisted by 2 artists, one of whom was Shrrl Gravelin-Carpenter, who has turned into a great Halloween makeup artist.
As you look at the album, you can see that the light changes over time. That, my friends, is the sun rising. Ugh.
Anna took a lot of great detail shots of Charlie’s basic latex-and-greasepaint build-up. I will ask Anna for permission to post them here as well.
I still have never seen the final product, so once I get a link to that will post here also.
