We've been having some 'serious fun' over the past few days putting together a couple of critical 'set up' shots for the production. One shot entailed the rising of a bloody hand on a battlefield during a snowstorm ...
After several hours of 'make-up' this male hand (note wedding band) does the trick. It creates just the right amount of foreboding, despair - and hope - in a world gone mad with war ...
Stay tuned for more Behind-the Scenes updates.
Merry Christmas to you all - from the cast and crew at The Frozen Goose.
