Here is my clay sculpture for a monster mask I am making.
I have recently taken a class from a hollywood 'monster mask' maker: Jordu Schell.

His specialty is in latex masks and appliances or parts of masks that are applied with make up to actors faces. He has worked on loads of films, most recently probably Aliens vs Predator and some painting monsters on Cloverfield.

Cool and demented art, here is his studio gallery:

I have cast this sculpture and poured a latex mask that I will paint. I will post more pics as I go!

Hi! I'm thinking of taking Jordu Schell's class and I was wondering what you thought of it overall? Looking back, would you have traveled to take it? I live in Canada and it's going to be a huge expensive endeavor with lots of time to kill in between weekly classes.
Has his course helped you much with your career and/or artistic development?
Anything you can tell me would be great. Your stuff looks great by the way! Cool monster sculpt!
