My Summer Lair featuring Geoff Redknap (The Unseen)

My Summer Lair Chapter #85:So How Does A Special Makeup Effects Artist Make A Movie On Invisibility?
I’m half kidding Geoff but his explanation of his vision; of how he deftly executes his vision for the Invisible Man in The Unseen is impressive. To be a great special makeup effects artist means a) the last word…an artist and 2) a compelling vision is a job requirement.
You’ve seen Geoff Redknap’s work…ready? Deep Breath!
Deadpool 1 and 2 (Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson cancer/disease face)
Supergirl (with Kevin Smith)
Legends of Tomorrow
The Cabin in the Woods
The last part I was happy to bring up as it allowed me to give Kim Manners a memorial of sorts. He died in 2009 but as a producer and director he shaped Supernatural and X-Files of course…but he also directed episodes of 21 Jump Street, Mission: Impossible and 1 episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation (When the Bough Breaks).
The Unseen is screening now and will hopefully find its way to Netflix and Crave. Geoff has directed a unique movie; one he hopes becomes part of Canada’s pop culture contribution: our Invisible Man, eh?
