I’m getting quotes for a special costume, a Victorian biosuit. I’ve started to think about casting too.
Ian and his girlfriend and I went to an open evening at a special FX company last night. There were gremlins, a rubber car battery, that pesky BBC 2 logo, a giant quarterback, Audrey II in a range of sizes. One man made it snow. Another got set on fire. Watching a body burn stunt in the flesh is really quite scary.
Amongst the pyromaniacs demonstrating explosions, who should I find but Toby Stewart, the man who blew up the train for Soul Searcher. He’s still making things go pop and whoomph.
