snow white
At LEGACY FX we had done several commercials with director Rupert Sanders, so when the time came that he wanted to make the leap to feature films he contracted us to create effects for a "sizzle reel" to get the studio behind 'Snow White & the Huntsman'. I helped to create this "tree man" puppet along with Bruce Fuller and Chris Grossnickle, and then fabricated the 'wood nymph' suit and makeup sculpted by Mike O'Brien. The sizzle reel was so succesful that Universal Studios backed Rupert with a lot more funding than initially promised.
