Took a break from my usual weekend activities to help some friends out with a short film they were making. However, I didn't help in the normal sense (aka decorating the sets) -- nope, this time I helped out ON CAMERA by playing a background zombie.
This is my third time playing a zombie, but my first time getting real make up done. I had a full prosthetic cheek glued to my face. which was then painted to look like someone had taken a bite out of it. Didn't hurt a bit, but it looked pretty darn gross.
Putting the make up on took about 45 minutes. Shooting the scene took 10 minutes. Taking the make up off.... sigh, lets just say, I will be going to work tomorrow with some glue and latex still stuck to my face!
