Happy Halloween! Monster from "Hyper-Reality" (Repeat)

On Sunday [October 29, 2017] I posted another piece about my uncompleted 35mm short film epic, Hyper-Reality. It's Halloween today and I thought I would post an on-set photograph of the film's monster.

Actor Mike Garr rehearses a fight scene with the monster -- actually a guy [my brother] in a costume that I designed and built (with some valued assistance from Erminia Diamantopoulos).

When the fight choreographer first saw the costume, she said: "I find that really disturbing."

My inspiration for designing this monster came from the 1960s Irwin Allen shows I watched as a kid. This creature would have looked at home in Lost in Space or Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
