Nosferatu in Love

I've just finished working as the prosthetic designer for the character of Nosferatu in Peter Straughan's upcoming short 'Nosferatu in Love'. We created 50 handmade individually tailored plastic nails, 20 rubber nails, 5 sets of ears and Dave Felstead aided me with creating the character makeup. After spending an amazing week shooting in the Czech Republic, I now eagerly await the release of the film as part of Skyarts 'playhouse' season starting in April 2014.

Ear sculpt, finished and ready for moulding

Each nail was made with a butt-joint, so that it would break in a safe and controlled way 

Nail ends stuck on, ready for sanding and trimming
