In Honor of Halloween and our last meeting of 2013...
The October 17th, Indiana Filmmakers Network - Lafayette chapter meeting, will be devoted to Special Effects Makeup & Practical Effects! With our VERY special guest speaker David Schlatter and a plethora of goreific goodies!!!
Special effects makeup & practical effects, have always been David Schlatter’s first and favorite love; monsters, creatures, zombies, prosthetic and wound makeup are always in demand. While working on the production of the short film, Fertility 2.0 (whose creature was designed by Lydia Burris), David was provided with some very unique makeup challenges in a low budget production setting.
David also has been involved in theatre and film for a number of years, "The Pillowman, The Lieutenant of Inishmore, and Evil Dead - The Musical," are just some of his favorite theatre productions, for which he has worked, designed, and built all the practical effects for.
David has designed a Non-explosive blood hit systems called the Safety Hit that is cost effective for large and low budget films and theatre. The Safety Hit system was first used in a theatre production of "The Flaming Guns of The Purple Sage," and has been used in movies in the US and Canada.
