New Sony Commission! Monster Prom Photos!

February 18, 2014


Today Sony announced their new commission from me!   I’m going to create 3 original Prom photographs utilizing their new Alpha 7 camera.  Here is the Sony UK press release describing my project:

American photographer Joshua Hoffine‘s meticulously staged images depict universal fears, from creatures lurking under the bed and in basements, to the shadowy imaginings of monsters after dark. His exclusive new commission for Sony UK reimagines iconic monsters Frankenstein, Dracula, and Wolfman as awkward teenagers posing for their Prom pictures with their human dates. Joshua’s work has reached cult status across the world through the hugely viral nature of his photographs. Inspired by horror films, gothic literature and fascinated by the psychology of fear, Hoffine regularly collaborates with famed makeup artist J. Anthony Kosar, to produce powerfully haunting, cinematic images, using elaborate sets, props, costuming and special effects makeup.

I’m very excited about this Monster Prom project!  This one is going to be very funny.  Dracula will have braces.  Frankenstein has a mullet.  I wrote this concept specifically to have another chance to work with Kosar again.  As I am wrapping up post-production on my short film BLACK LULLABY (which Kosar worked on), he is already preparing for our upcoming 3rd collaboration together.  I can’t wait for everyone to see what we are up to!

Only 3 Days left for the Kickstarter campaign for my first short film BLACK LULLABY!  Pledges of $25 not only receive a signed DVD but a credit in the film as well.  Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this unique Horror project!

Here you can see me and FACE/OFF Champion J. Anthony Kosar making a final pitch for our awesome film:

 

Kickstarting My New Zombie Project!

January 17, 2013

Hi kiddies!  I have officially started my first Kickstarter Project!

From May 25th through June 29th 2013, the great Travis Louie will be curating a show at the Last Rites Gallery in NYC entitled “ZOMBIE.” He has been kind enough to invite me to be a part of this show, so I am raising funds to help with the costs of creating my most ambitious photograph ever, “LAST STAND.”

This photograph will feature a family in their last moments right before they are completely consumed by a horde of zombies! The central figure will be the Father, who is blasting a zombie in the head with a shotgun.  My camera will freeze every detail of this explosive moment. The Father does not realize that right behind him his wife and children are already being taken down and eaten by the zombies pouring in through the broken barricades of the front door. This image will include over a dozen characters in full zombie make-up interacting all at once, on a set that will be destroyed by gunfire and fake blood.

Please check out my Kickstarter Page. There are wonderful incentives, and all pledges will receive a signed print of the final image. Tell all of your friends, help spread the word by sharing my link on Facebook, and let everybody know.  This image will be amazing!

I have already cast the role of the Father, and I am thrilled to announce that he will be played by none other than PHANTASM’s A. Michael Baldwin!

The special effects will be led by my friend J. Anthony Kosar, who recently exhibited my work in his Chicago gallery, and made his television debut this past week on Season 4 of Face/Off!  He is monstrously talented and a sweetheart and we are very proud of him! He won both events on the first episode – can you believe that? I am super-excited about our upcoming collaboration.

All prints will be signed by me, Kosar, and my star Baldwin.

Please help spread the word.  I will keep you updated on progress!
