Odds and Ends:
edmontonsurfclub, a freelance amature makeup artist, lent me some sage advice on creating something out of nothing:
-There are no stupid projects. All work is good work regardless of how dumb you think it is.
-If your just getting into the game, people will probalby have more money than you so you have to know more than them. Read everything you can. Knowledge let's you do cool stuff for cheap.
-Smile! Always be optimistic and have a can do attitude. Never bitch about deadlines or project specs.
-Panic Now. Relax when you are done two days ahead of schedule.
-If you can't be technical, be awesome. If you can't be awesome, be technical.
-Everything looks better after a nap.
-Get a pint glass, put three ice cubes in it. Two shots of vodka then half Red Bull, half cranberry juice.
With this attitude, he manages to make some pretty great zombies:
There is so many resources, and so much to read about when you start delving in to horror special effects. The key thing to do though - have fun!
