Why Hide is an exciting new horror comedy from talented young film makers, Director James Cook and Karen Taylor.

I came on board to create some scary finger extensions for the ‘demon’ character. Due to the tight time constraints my role expanded to take on the makeup effect duties to create one of the haunted visions, a character called Kwaku Anansi.

James sent me across some concept art and mood boards that were invaluable to help me create this wonderful creature!

I began by doing my own drawings to make the earlier concept art work as a makeup. I also created the articulated finger extensions and will post videos of the hands in the near future.
