BBC’s Waking The Dead – Behind The Scenes of Prosthetic Makeup Application
The Bleeding Knife tutorial was based on a gag for a scene in the BBC TV show Waking The Dead which I did last year, working for a fantastic FX guy Waldo Mason who did most of the stuff for the show. Working with him & Viv Riley, the series makeup designer was a lot of fun, and I extend my sincere gratitude for the job.
The BBC have also just released a short ‘making-of’ video featuring the application of drowned corpse makeup I made for the show, and I thought it would be cool to post it here. Thanks to Ed for doing a great mould and for helping with the application – you rock! Check it out and let me know what you think!
Please note: This clip may not play if outside of the UK owing to the BBC licencing laws and stuff. If so, apologies – out of my control but will be posting my own pics in due course once the show has aired!
(UPDATE April 3rd 2011: The show aired part 1 today, and on April 4th part 2 will be on. I will put something together and post ASAP!)
