I was recently able to get my first viewing of the cover for my new lifecasting DVD that Steve is doing for me, and it looks awesome! Steve is definitely one of the best up and coming graphics guys in our industry...he works really quick, and he takes it well when changes are suggested (which I wish I could say about more people!)...thanks Steve!...

I'm working on setting up distributors...it will be available on the CV site and hauntedhousesupplies.com..with more soon to be announced...here is some info about the DVD......


Featuring Dan Faupel

Brought to you by the creative minds behind Creative Visions, this unique DVD addresses the special needs and techniques involved in working with lifecasting, when silicones are being used in animatronic character construction. This interactive DVD will show you how to prepare for and perform a human head and hands lifecast, as you watch an animatronic character go from the drawing board to install. Besides covering lifecasting basics, you'll also learn about mold-making, and working with sulpher-free clays and silicones. There are also many invaluable tips and techniques on sculpting, as well as pigmenting, patching, painting, and finishing condensation cure silicone. A must for any pro, student, or fan of special make-up FX and animatronics. This DVD has behind the scenes, and other features as well, such as a material list that you can select from the main menu. (no searching and pausing required!) The DVD features the artistry of Dan Faupel. He is currently the Production Designer at Creative Visions, a company specializing in the fabrication of themed environments and animatronics at amusement facilities around the world. See more of Danís work at www.CreativeVisionsOnline.com

Lifecasting For Silicone Applications Vol. 1 will be released at the 2005 Midwest Haunter's Convention. It will be available at the Doomsday Productions booth, #45, and the Tri-State Terror booths, #'s 46-47 . At MHC only, the DVD will be discounted five dollars to be only $20. One dollar from each sale will be donated to the new IAHA charity, ICAN, which will help haunters in need. The DVD will work in tandem with the lifecasting workshop Dan will be teaching at MHC.

Dan, I am looking forward to getting a copy of your video! I've never tried working with lifecasting before, but I'm looking forward to learning more about it! I'm assuming this is what you used to create the pirate effect for Pirates of Emerson??? Is the video available through your site... or will it be soon? Talk to you soon my friend!

Kelly...the DVD is almost through postproduction..so no copies available yet, but I'll make sure yours is the first to go out!...the underwater animatronic head we did for Pirates of Emerson was an originally sculpted piece I did that turned out nice, but not quite the same process...the thing that makes him really good is when his jaw moves when he talks, he blows bubbles out of his mouth!...the DVD will be available soon...at MHC, the DVD will also be available at Frank's booths...Frank also has a DVD coming out that he should mention!...too bad you're not going Kel...I'll make a toast in your honor!

They are compliments well deserved Steve...and you should definitley post it up when you're finished!
