Bizarro includes 400 photos-100 in full color-of Savini's work on screen and behind the scenes. Many of these photographs have never been seen before. All the effects he has created in each of his films are explored and explained. Also included are step-by-step make-up demonstrations (shot especially for the book) to offer budding make-up artists and film fans a firsthand look at how cinematic illusions are created. For the first time, Tom Savini has put his knowledge of technique and his experience in the field of special make-up effects down on paper. Bizarro is both a chronicle of his work and a learning guide for anyone who wishes to pursue special make-up effects as a career.
Tom Savini not only makes dreams real-he brings nightmares to life. In Bizarro he shows step-by-step how he created some of the most amazing special make-up effects in horror films today. Savini's films include Creepshow, Friday the 13th, Eyes of a Stranger, The Burning, Maniac, and The Prowler. His effects range from walking corpses to exploding zombies. He has also created some wonderful monsters, including Creepshow's Fluffy and Friday the 13th's spine-tingling Jason.(Publisher). Good +. Item #6743
