TALES OF HALLOWEEN
This was an animatronic puppet created for the anthology film ‘Tales of Halloween’ for the ‘Bad Seed’ segment. Directed by Neil Marshall this genetically modified pumpkin comes to life and to kill trick or treaters and carvers alike on Halloween night. The puppet was fully animatronic with full pivot and open and close jaw. The roots were pneumatic for random movement.
Jason, Mike and the crew at Autonomous have been, and continue to be, excellent partners in creating the world of Stan Against Evil. And when I say obscure stuff like, “It should have sort of a Paul Blaisdell feel,” they instantly know what I’m talking about.
Jason and his team understand that creativity trumps all, while always understanding the budget and schedule. I love working with them.
Over the course of my many experiences with Jason Collins and Autonomous masterminding the prosthetic and creature effects on my shows I am his biggest fan. His artistry, ingenuity and knowledge seem to know no boundaries. Also, he is a helluva lot of fun to work with!
