FX artist Vincent Guastini shared with DC a quick look at some of his work on the upcoming third chapter in the V/H/S franchise, V/H/S: Viral. Check it out right here, and look for more on this one A/S/A/P!
From the Press Release
Vincent Guastini of V.G.P. Effects & Design Studio, a Hollywood-based company nestled behind the Burbank Airport, has announced his company’s involvement with doing two very elaborate effects-laden episodes of the horror hit franchise V/H/S, the latest one being titled V/H/S: Viral.
Vincent at this time cannot go into specifics but promises when the film comes out or is at least closer to its release, he will give more in-depth information and a picture spread about his involvement, which included an army of undead and some animatronic creatures in both episodes. Meanwhile, here are a few exclusive photos that Vincent can share… a more clear glimpse of what has been released in trailers.
“All I can say at this moment is we pulled out all the stops and I was able to convince one of the directors to go practical for the effects and not use CGI. I think we won the battle and also did some miniature effects as well. All I can say is I had a blast working with both Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson, on one episode, and also working with the highly visual, out-of-the-box take Todd Lincoln had on his episode. They were all different as far as the work process in getting to the final outcome, but in both cases I had a blast. I was given full freedom. The directors cared very much about every shot, and we all met or talked through emails and phone conversations several times and had many long conversations and meetings about all the effects. I love working for these guys; they care, they communicate, and above all they have passion, something I greatly admire when working with guys like this who are that on point and picky as well as very attentive to small details about their effects. Also, having producers Chris White and Brad Miska backing me up all the way was a tremendous asset to me and my crew. I can’t wait for this film to come out so I can talk more about our involvement in-depth and how much we did for this film.”
Vincent has been in the make-up creature and effects business for over 20 years. His credits include Dogma, Requiem for a Dream, Last of the Mohicans, Letters of Iwo Jima, Saturday Night Live, and more recently, Sushi Girl, The Devil’s Carnival, Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, the upcoming Bryan Singer-produced horror film The Taking, and Twisted Pictures’ new franchise movie Havenhurst.
