‘SAW’ CHEST BURSTING TRAP
For this live awards show honoring the years best horror films we needed to create a live stage piece where a man sits in a trap with a timer that counts down with the audience. When we hit zero the trap cracks his rib cage spraying blood and guts on the audience. Tricky piece as we needed to load it on to a stage in the dark at the Greek Theatre in the middle of a crowd.
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!
