Shot of the Day 335: Sensory Deprivation

Shot with iphone, click to enlarge.

Out in North Hollywood, that's me getting head cast for *NAME WITHHELD*. Wish I could talk more about it but then I'd give away the nice surprises. Now, I actually like this part of the process; To not have to talk and be silent for 30-60 minutes? Dream come true for me, so I took the opportunity to just zen out while BLUES BROTHERS and then RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK played on a TV in the BG while the techs work around me, tell jokes and then draw on my head cast for shits and giggles. Guess it gets boring in the shop.

However, the hardest part wasn't having the world cut off from my senses, where my eyes, mouth, ears...basically my entire head is covered in alginate (nose holes were made to, you know, BREATH) for an extended period of time, nor was the FX guys tempting my only available sense (smell) with hamburgers and chicken tenders while I waited a problem. No, its the coming OFF that proved to be difficult, especially for a hairy fuck like yours truly. The alginate is just a fancy word for glue, and that glue has cemented itself to practically every follicle that is attached to my chest, back, neck, face, burn and head...basically anything from the nipple up has glue on it, and a beyotch to get off...hurts like a 100 bee stings. It was now I wish I had taken Bri's offer to completely shear me smooth this weekend to heart. There's glue still stuck in me and damn if it doesn't smart.

...Ow ow ow ow ow ow ow ow...

Hopefully the pain and the process are worth it....guess we'll see soon enough.

Happy December! One month to go....
