So, as we posted Frank’s first foray into makeup, I felt it only right (plus we said we would on show 1) that I should post my first foray into makeup. This is around Halloween 1982. I used the Dick Smith TV/Movie Horror Makeup Kit that I got for Christmas a few years earlier. I remember trying to work the Flexi-Flesh material and by the time I was using this stuff, I ran out of the flesh colored blending stick, so I had to use this blue color that I found somewhere. Whatever I couldn’t color, I just covered up with fake blood. Anyhow, I have a few other photos, but those will have to saved for another time.
On our first episode, Frank talks about his earliest forays into makeup and creature design. He just sent me some photos from the “good old days”. You gotta admit, this is pretty good stuff from a kid.
As soon as I get back home to my mom’s place, I’ll post my makeups as well. They are nowhere as good as Frank’s. On second thought, maybe I won’t embarrass myself.
Great job, Frank!
Today is a really big day for Frank and I because our new podcast CreatureGeek is live today! Not only is it a real thing, but right out of the gate, we have a a big brand name behind us: Tested.com. As you may or may not know, Tested.com is a website affiliated with Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. It is run by Norm Chan and Will Smith, And it is awesome. And we couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Tested family. Both Frank and I are honored to know that this crew believes in us enough to support us. Thanks so much.
So here’s the deal: Right now, CreatureGeek is a semi-regular podcast that will be be done in “seasons”. Each season will be 8 regular episodes (although we may do a Bonus cast from time to time). We’ll air every other Friday on Tested and here. If people like the show, we’ll be back for Season 2. And so on and so on.
So please let us know how you like the show, Leave comments here or at Tested so Frank and I can adjust accordingly. Frank and I have recorded almost the entire first season already just because of Frank’s crazy production schedule, so we may not be able to implement a lot of changes right from the start. But believe me, we will be listening and taking notes.
That’s it. Frank and I are happy to be doing this show and we hope you enjoy it!
