What We Did

  • 1 silicone body
  • 1 silicone severed arm gag
  • 2 prosthetic disguise makeups
  • 6 artisans/technicians
  • Build schedule: approximately 4 weeks

Hyper-realistic hand amputation and distorted facial disguise prosthetics. During the film, one of the character’s hands is chopped off. We sold this effect well with a rod puppeteered fake arm with pumping blood. The prosthetic disguise makeups possessed oversized facial features lending an unnatural and unsettling aesthetic to these makeups when worn by the actors.
