Meet the Creature Feature Team

Creature Feature is a film I could not do alone (at least not within a reasonable amount of time), so I recruited several individuals to help lighten the load. I believe they all strongly deserve credit for their work, which can be a bit tricky to point out on a collaboration such as this, as few things were done completely by the hand of one person. So to the best of my efforts, here's a highlight on the team members who contribution I could not have done without and how we collaborated our efforts together:

Tada Kongjonrak 

Tada not only has a magical name, but has been far and away my most loyal and dedicated assistant. While developing the idea for his own stop-motion short and honing his 2D-animation talent, he found the time to build several amazing props for Creature Feature.

Taking my direction and reference to heart, he built the bulk of the fire hydrant, the milk crate, the A-Frame street sign, the iron gate, several outdoor potted plants, a hanging air duct, and a water cooler.  I would then take his great base work and then add the finishing details and weathering.

Kiersten Obenchain

As a talented and up-and-coming puppet and set fabricator, Kiersten was a strong asset whenever I was fortunate enough to snag some of her time.

She was instrumental to painting my exterior set's wall and achieving a stone-like texture. She also fully constructed the tin can for the Tentacle puppet, a stool for the security booth, a street light, an interior wall clock, and the graphics for the job bulletin board for the waiting room set.

Evren Bilgihan

As a web developer, Evren wanted to get some more time doing hands-on art while at art school. 

He namely built the dumpster body, created its decals, and the majority of the paint job. With a solid foundation of the dumpster in place, I then built the lids, added the trash, graffiti and  weathering. 

He also fabricated the waste basket and bulletin board for the waiting room set. 

Together, we also built the frame and stretched the canvas for the matte painting, which he also roughed the layout for.

Annie Wong

Annie shared studio space with me while working on her own stop-motion project, Coppelia: The Girl With The Porcelain Eyes. We often shared ideas, techniques, and tools with each other on a near daily basis. 

Her main contribution was to take the Hollywood Hills matte painting that had been roughed out and took it to another level. She gave it the attention, detail, and final atmosphere that brought life and warmth into the set.
