WOW 2014!!

Hey folks! Sorry been very busy in the last 5 years! I am married to the most wonderful woman and have a beautiful daughter. I'm also currently working at a company whom I owe a great gratitude, especially to the owner who gave me my first start in the make-up fx field, without him, I think I'd still be working in a restaurant which is not a bad thing but I never wanted to do that to begin with. Make-up fx was my first passion. Anywho, just wanted to add something to this blog. More to come!! Stay tuned!

So close and yet so far!

Hello all, Vinnie here! I guess it's been way too long since the last time I posted! Here's an update. I'm still working on Bong of the Dead. I can sort of see the light at the end of the tunnel but it's still a long ways yet. The special effects are improving a lot since the very first shot so that's a good sign. My goal is to make it seamless so I hope no one will notice the shots. However, flying meteors and explosions and stuff is a bit hard to make realistic especially on our budget so I hope it looks alright. I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween! Oh...speaking of which, I have some news...whether it's good or not, you guys can decide. in the upcoming episode of Fringe, I, Vincent Yoshida will be in it... err... well not me but a dummy version of me. I am playing a dead Chinese immigrant with a giant parasite coming out of my mouth. So if you can, please watch it. Plus I built the animatronics parasite for the show as well. I hope it looks good!! Crossing my fingers!! Anyways... I gotta go work on Bong of the Dead... until next time!

What a Weird couple of months!

Hello all, It's me again, so sorry for not posting on a regular basis, it's been quite a ride. We finished filming Bong of the dead, and now it's in it's editing stage along with everything else. My personal life has been a roller coaster ride, but things have somewhat went back to normal... I think. I dunno. But anyways, Bong of the Dead is motoring along quite nicely so I don't see any problems with it being complete around March. Crossing my fingers. Now it's up to the Gods! LOL! Anywho, I just wanted you all to see what's been going on these past few months. Check out www.bongofthedead.com for more info.

Week 1 was a sucess!!

Well, we survived week 1 of Bong of the Dead. Everyone pitched in and it was glorious!! The Director got all of his shots. There were some minor mishaps and things didn't go as planned but overall it was great. Mike Fields and his team did an awesome job with the Zombies and gore, BrantFX and team did an equally awesome job. Jodi and Mary fed us really well with some good ol' home cooked meals. The acting was total BOSS!! The dailies look fantastic, and I know the cast and crew will be proud to have worked on this production. Everyone went way beyond the call of duty to get the shots done and we at Bong of the Dead really appreciated that. Now, tomorrow we will start week 2. I hope everything will go nicely. Wish us luck!! ^_^
