Episode 117: John Dods
On this episode of The Bonus Material Podcast, Thom Carnell & Langley J West talk with FX Guru, John Dods. John has been described by CNN as "one of the world's foremost masters of disguise" and has created makeups ranging from the AIDS victims of Longtime Companion (1989), to the aliens, vampires, and zombies of the TV-series Monsters (1988), to the Beast in Disney's Broadway musical, Beauty and the Beast (1994-2007). Other Broadway credits include Prosthetic Design for "The New Mel Brooks Musical Young Frankenstein" (2007) and "The Toxic Avenger Musical" (2009). Dods professional breakthrough happened in 1983 when his mechanical monsters for the indie-feature The Deadly Spawn (1983) appeared on 6 magazine covers and acquired cult status on Internet websites. Also, we'll also look at some News and make a few recommendations.
