MONSTER PARTY GOES TO WHERE THE RUBBER MEETS THE FACE!
SHAWN SHERIDAN, JAMES GONIS, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, genuflect at the feet of the artform that has shaped them! Raises your glasses and man your bladder pumps, as MONSTER PARTY salutes... THE ART OF PRACTICAL EFFECTS!!!
MONSTER PARTY loves practical effects! Sure, CGI is now all the rage, but nothing puts a spring in our step like seeing an actor bring life to a foam rubber makeup appliance! Or an animatronic alien wreaking havoc!! Or latex skin bubbling! Or stop motion dinosaurs! Or live action dinosaurs! Or... Sorry. Sometimes we get a bit carried away.
In this episode, we champion the genius of classic makeup legends like Lon Chaney, Jack Pierce, John Chambers, William Tuttle, and the Westmore family, as well as the groundbreaking work of trailblazers like Dick Smith, Rick Baker, Rob Bottin, and Stan Winston. And in the SFX category, we've always got some love for greats like Willis O' Brien, Ray Harryhausen, and Eiji Tsuburaya!
Joining us for this parade of practical praise, is a guest who knows of what he speaks He's an Emmy Award-winning makeup FX artist, who has worked on such iconic projects as JOHN CARPENTER'S THE THING, LEGEND, THE INCREDIBLE HULK TV MOVIES, CRITTERS, TREMORS, COMMUNION, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION, STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE, MEN BLACK, CSI, and MORE! Please welcome our new mega-talented monster kid friend .. JOHN GOODWIN!
