Friday the 13th

Oh, the blood-drenched memories of Jason at the shoot of Friday the 13th, part 6!  One of the first films I was involved in, in L.A. in 1986.  At the age of 22, I was up to my elbows in fake blood on the set and was impressed with the new, tall Jason, compared to what he looked like in the prequels! Well, if you get struck by lightning, you probably stand a little taller, right? My mentors Dave and George at CRC even had me dressing up in trash bags to make me easier to clean off at the end of the shift! At this time, I had not begun working with the air squib, but with all the blood flowing, it must have set something off in my mind for future, blood-curdling experiments with the air squib…

Great fun in L.A. I remember all that was on my old car radio in L.A. was a singing Gloria Estefan. I loved it!

I have no idea who took this studio photo, so let me know if you know who should be credited for this.

Never miss out on a thing!
