    I did know this existed. Funny and I did this stuff for over 30 years. everything from Spock's ears to Ghost busters.

    Although most of my work these days is CGI and model work-film making I do still take the occasional flash back in the old art.

    I did these in late 2010.

    I did this one too. Both favorite subjects for me. Especially the Sixth finger because I worked and was friends with both John Chambers and Fred Philips.

    Thanks Paul. To see more of the effect work I have done for you younger guys that may never have heard of me go here: sneillfx.com

    Here's another picture you might recognize. The guy behind her with his hand in her face is me. I did other stuff on the film beside the hand gag. Was even in the terror dog suit a couple of times and puppeteered him as well.

    And here's another rare one. I did all of Chris's prosthetics in Fright Night except for the last stage. This is the sculpt of the hand pieces for the pencil gag I did. I keep finding this stuff and have a bunch more somewhere.

    Here's one I think some of you older guys will know. I did a lot of Gorilla work in my suits. Rick Baker was kind enough to recommend me to many such jobs.

    Lets see how many of you know what this is from. BTW this shoot nearly killed me. it was 105 on the sound stage when we shot. It was before cool suits. The AC broke down on the stage of course.

    Is that from the Transamerica commercial? I think I remember seeing it as a teenager, unless my memory is playing tricks. Great thread, love seeing your original work up close.

    The only film I can think of is "King Kong Lives" but that was '86. Other than that I have no idea what that still could be from.

    Well I could do a video it would take less time. We spent a couple of months together. The best story was the night he took in on the town for my 28th birthday. What a night.

    Soon.

    I'm not sure why or how that happened but the link was fine and then just goes to me video list. It should go right to the video now.

    This thread makes me wish I'd gone for the model making and effects classes instead of computer animation. Then again back in 1997 none of us knew CGI would take over. I love seeing all these behind the scenes glimpses.

    Steve, enjoyed that video as much as any that I have seen. Looking forward to further "reflections" videos as well as your excellent build videos.

    You need your own network!

    Not really. I first met Rob over at Baker's when he was only 16. Later I worked on The Thing and Legends for him. He's a great guy.
