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.
