Making WITCH

September 30, 2016

Hi kiddies!

This is my new Horror photograph called WITCH.

This project was produced by Jeff Simon.

The SPFX witch mask was made by Midnight Studios FX.

The witch, in Jungian terms, is the archetype of the devouring mother. The anti-mother.  So of course, I gave my own mother Carol Hoffine the title role – despite the fact that she is one of the greatest moms of all time.

Here she is trying on the costume for my shoot:

The baby head is a doll’s head.  I painted it and glued on snippets of my own hair.  My wife Jen glued on fake eyelashes for me.

Brenna Hoch did the make-up for my mother’s hands.

Demian Vela, as always, was on set to assist.

The witch mask was foam-filled and unable to wear.  So after photographing my Mom, we moved the witch head into her exact position.

I combined my Mom with the SPFX witch head in Photoshop for the final image.

A special thank you to Trevor Hawkins for helping me find the perfect wooded location.

See you next time!
