I spent the last few days running foam. Foam rubber is a temperamental substance at the best of times. It’s hard to predict the results from one batch to the next even if you do everything exactly the same. Even with all the experience I have using the stuff I’ve never had a puppet come out of the mold without needing some touch ups. There are 6 characters in FORM HELL HE RIDES and each of them will be spending time at the work bench (some more than others) but aside from one puppet which I’m not sure shouldn’t be redone, none of the other 5 need a second run. That’s a pretty good average.
On the festival front, FILTH has received the award for Best Special Effects from the Sin City Horror Fest in Las Vegas. I found this out while watching the Facebook live stream of the awards ceremony. It was a bizarrely surreal moment. It’s also been nominated for awards in 3 categories (Best Foreign Film, Best Production Design, Best Poster) at the Wreck Havoc Horror Film Festival.
