Behind the Scenes on THE DARK PINCHUK

Posted by No_name_here (1247 posts) - - Show Bio


Red Lamp figured some of you might be interested in a “behind the scenes” look of my big ego trip last week… * AHEM * … that is, the DARK PINCHUK video we had up.  You can have fun comparing what’s on the page to what’s on the screen, and then further by putting this side-by-side with the DARK KNIGHT screenplay I so hastily emulated.

Thanks goes to where thanks is due, and I’ll voice my gratitude to those who helped me finally (and so graphically) realize this impression I’ve done as a party favor for the past two years. First, thanks to my friend, make-up artist Megan Flynn, who made the prosthetic scars and lent me some grease paint and spirit gum for their application. Everybody check out her website - - Colors and Creatures. Second, I’ll thank Babs for applying the make-up and hairspray so skillfully. I know she got a special, perverse enjoyment out of getting to pour baby oil right down into my open eyes when it came time to remove the make-up. And third, I put my thanks to “Master of Sight and Sound” JoeyF for shooting, editing and inserting all the effects into the video. It really has been a lifelong dream of mine to stand in front of a wall of fire and he made that dream come true.

If I can find my camera, I’ll post up some personal “production stills” from the shoot. In the meantime, enjoy these screengrabs. If you liked the video, beware... there's a good chance we'll do more.

Can't believe Tom didn't thank L'il G-Girl for her green hair spray paint...

@G-Man: Doh! And, of course, a thousand thanks to the spawn of G-Man. I suppose I ought to thank the tailor who made my jacket, too.

 I'm glad to have made your dream of standing in front of a wall of fire come true, Tom!
I hope we do get to make more of these.  It was a blast.

You're too funny!!  LMAO! 

Man, I enjoyed that video.  It looked like everyone had fun, it was very colorful loved the impression of Joker.  
 Still laughing at Red L.A.M.P. getting the banana in the eye socket.   He's got eye appeal.
