New Behind the scenes from Swiss Army Man

Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Local #706 displayed Jason Hamer’s work and a few new images from Swiss Army Man. We had five weeks to build and I was still trying to wrap my brain around the nonsensical list of needed make-up effects. My breakdown read something like this:

Motor-butt Manny (a rideable dummy propelled by farts)
Mechanical four-way cable-controlled boner mech
Hyper realistic Manny butt plumbed with air
Lightweight hero Manny dummy (with interchangeable head and hands)
Heavy-duty Manny dummy
Hank’s bear-mauling make-up

Early meetings consisted of bizarre requests for a hyper realistic butt of Manny. “We want it hairy, plumbed with air and to film it with the Phantom camera (at 2000 fps) as it explodes out of the water.” And “How should we do the boner compass?”

At one meeting, the Daniels acted out the opening sequence where Hank rides Manny through the water to the beautiful score by Andy Hull (from Manchester Orchestra). This was the first time I ever had the opportunity to listen to a director’s vision for a film while the soundtrack was playing. It was then that I understood the emotional content they were trying to convey.

Graham Norton

Got to see the new episode of Graham Norton which is always a pleasure to see there was 3 clips released on the net. Which will be posted below. They showed Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick’s movie Trolls, Dan with Swiss Army Man and Imperium which Dan also brought Manny on the show. Robbie Williams told a hilarious fan experience and sang. There was unfortunately no red chair this time. But it was funny overall. The playlist will show all 3 videos in a row.

We also have some pictures from the show.
