EXCLUSIVE: VFX FRANKENSTEIN "MAD LAB" EQUIPMENT
Sculptor Douglas Hildebrandt has provided MONSTER MAGAZINE WORLD with an update of his latest creation, the Karloff as Frankenstein bust with special effects from VFX/Factory Entertainment.
Not stopping there, his next project is the production of an array of equipment of the type that would be found in Dr. Frankenstein's "mad lab". Here's what Douglas has to say about his new project:
"The Factory Entertainment Universal Karloff VFX Frankenstein bust is selling well. About half have been sold already as preorders and people are really loving the visual and sound effects in them. I might be sculpting a life-size Elsa Lanchester as the Bride of Frankenstein for Factory Entertainment as the next inline for the VFX series. We are also in the process of developing a few very unique projects never before seen that will incorporate lightning into the design. A type of Frankensteinish looking lab equiptment with lights, sound and actual lightning. Here are a couple photos of a prototype I designed with actual lighting inside the glass tube. It's roughly 24 inches tall with working lights ad meters and switches. The production model will be similiar in style."
