Grief (2022)

This horror anthology feature follows the 5 stages of grief. Grieving can be scary, and often you’ll have to face the demons within. For this production we were allowed to make a few of these inner monsters. (more pictures coming soon…)

Greed & Gore (2021)

A production with “Gore” right there in the title is of course any FX artist’s dream!
For the short film Greed & Gore, we got to kill almost every character in a variety of gruesome and creative ways.
Pictures coming soon!

Snow Blinded (2021)

Snow Blinded is by far the most challenging film we worked on so far, because applying extensive prosthetic makeup for a shoot in the middle of the snowy woods is no walk in the park!
As we can’t give away any plot development yet, I’m just going to have to leave you with this teaser pic…

Neurovenge (2020)

Who says that your smart home system doesn’t have a secret agenda?
For Paper Padlock Production’s first feature film Neurovenge we fabricated a sleek little smart home unit. “Jackie” has dome camera, that can flash its light in different colours as it’s speaking to the actors. In addition, we also did some cool stabbing and makeup FX that we unfortunately can’t show you yet either…

Smart home unit Jackie communicates with flashing different colours light.

My Dinner With Chuck (2019)

For this short film, director Joe Parente needed an Alaskan King Crab capable of following instructions, like looking around the restaurant and talking with his fellow actors.
We provided the team with a realistic, life sized, cable controlled crab with beady alien eyes. With the help of 2 puppeteers, Chuck can move his eyes, claws, antennae and mandibles. His 32 parts (not counting inner mechanics!) are cast in resin and foam latex.
Special thanks to Ripley’s Aquarium Toronto for the research support!

Beyond Hell (2019)

Beyond Hell” is an indie feature film by director Alan Murray and producer Gavin Downes.
We designed the facial prosthetics for main demon Belial, and trained their team of make-up artists to apply the make-up. We also created a number of background demons, and a bar full of dead bodies.
