Frank and Len are back for Season 2 of CreatureGeek! Frank and Len catch up on what’s been happening on their off-time, what movies they have seen and also discuss the future of the show. Also, even though we say there is video with this episode, there isn’t and we apologize. Len explains at the top of the show.
Thanks to the gang at Tested.com for giving us a home and letting us continue with Season 2!
Just a quick note that Frank and I will be back this Friday with a brand new season of CreatureGeek! We have new guests and a slew of new shows. So mark your calendars as we crank up Season 2 of CreatureGeek, the SFX/Makeup show for fans and pros!
I found this a while ago and I thought it would be cool to share it here. These are home movies of actor Roddy McDowell whole working on the Planet of The Apes. The makeup artist is Don Cash who worked on a ton of classic movies from the 50’s and 60’s. It’s a pretty cool watch and worth at least 15 minutes of your day today. Check it out!
On this, the season finale of Creature Geek, Frank and Len welcome creature designer, makeup artist and character creator Shannon Shea. Shannon talks about working with Stan Winston, about his new project “Scream At the Devil” and also about his upcoming book. Let us know how you liked this season of CreatureGeek and if you want us back, let us – and the folks at Tested – know!
On this, the first CG for the year 2015, horror character actor Bill Moseley starts off the new year with some talk from the third side of the makeup world: the chair. Bill talks with Frank and I about his time in the makeup chair creating such popular characters such as ChopTop. He also talks about his time as a writer for National Lampoon. Plus, much chatter about cow anus’s being removed during alien abductions. Enjoy!
On this, our Christmas episode of CreatureGeek, Frank and I welcome Oscar Award winning makeup artist, Michele Burke. We chat about her method of creating iconic makeups like those from Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Tropic Thunder and Rock of Ages. We also chat about great gift ideas for the fan and the pro makeup artist. Happy Holidays everyone!
While Frank is currently on assignment, he sent me a really cool link of some rare shots of guest and friend of CreatureGeek, Rick Lazzarini’s work on the 80s classic Mel Brooks film, Spaceballs. Presented here without comment, but the photos sort of speak for themselves.
