This is a makeup from a short film. The character is experiencing a cancerous infection brought on by a Dr.-Jekyll-and-Mr.-Hyde-type drug. The cancer is not only bringing the character closer and closer to death, but doing so through an entropic process as the body’s cells fall into chaos. Included are images of the sculpture and final makeup. The makeup appliances are made of gelatin, which also relates to death, as it is made from the bones of animals.
Jasper has been designing and creating sets and props for theatre, haunted attractions, and film since childhood. In recent years, he has been featured in Sapere Aude, the San Francisco Chronicle, and several industry websites for his horror and special effects work. He is currently studying special makeup and creature effects, and can often be found in his backyard, prepping designs for student films.
