Well, I WAS in the huge zombie apocalypse scene in The Final Night and Day, but I only made it into one frame! But I know that I was there! And when we were all in line for “make-up” (being squirted with super-soakers filled with red-dyed water), I was once of the folks yelling, “More blood!!” And I am not even a horror fan… I get all squeamish.
But I am very grateful to director Adam Steigert of Deftone Pictures Studios for giving me the opportunity!
However, in Ombis Alien Invasion (click poster for more info, including cast), I even got a bit speaking part!! Woo hoo! AND a whole scene all to myself as I awakened from the dead, prepared to attack! Three and a half hours in make-up, designed by students of the Tom Savini FX School (Living Dead films, anyone?), and I was ready for my close up! (Click the picture for a link to Tom Savini’s site) The ONLY picture I have is the one of the beginning process…I was forbidden to have a pic in full make-up until after the film is released.
It was a great experience, and I loved being covered in slime! I’d do it again in a heartbeat!
PLEASE Adam, can I get a picture in make-up after May 18th?? I am dying here! 😦
May 18th cannot come fast enough for me! I already have my tickets for me and my kids and a special friend, so yippy skippy, bring on the popcorn! Premiering at the historic Hamburg Palace Theatre, Ombis is sure to be a treat to all involved!!
Here’s the trailer:
Richard Satterwhite as Sheriff Thomas Bracket
Jason John Beebe as Mark
Sara Manzella as Lucy
Michael Sciabarrasi as Mayor Logan
Brenda Rickert as Sarah
Kathy Murphy as Daisy
(with a guest appearance by Susan Woodward as Donna!)
Oh, yeah… I also threw my hat into the extras pool for the new Spiderman movie that is going to be filmed here in Rochester! 😛 Here’s hoping! I wonder if my aerial arts “skills” might be called upon…. (forefinger to chin, pondering)
