The Seasoning House Jul21st2012

I had known about Paul Hyett’s special make-up work for years (I’m a big fan of this area of film-making) & finally got to work alongside him on “Doomsday”, yet never actually got around to speaking with him until “Centurion” (long story involving another studio). Once we had struck up a friendship, I found myself involved in Paul’s own feature endeavours, “The Black Site” & “The Seasoning House”, the latter becoming the opening performance of the 13th Film4 FrightFest.

“The Seasoning House” is a gruelling experience, with a script I nearly turned down due to it being so unrelentingly brutal, but Paul slips effortlessly from 2nd unit director to the main chair & delivers a grim survival horror with an almost fairytale atmosphere. Look a little closer & you might spot my tattoo designs sported by actors Sean Pertwee as Goran & Ryan Oliva as Ivan.

Rose Black Jul21st2012

My first graphic novel “Rose Black” was published in 2004, coinciding with my first feature film “The Jacket”. Editor-in-chief of Rough Cut Comics Edward Murphy attended the May 2012 KAPOW! Comic Con with model Jackie “Ladydchaos” Kennedy, looking uncannily like one of my early concept drawings for the character.
