Moviemaking is a Messy Business

If you’ve been watching my Instagram lately, you will have noticed someone has a gripe against a guy named Vinnie.  😉

I was back on the set of James Balsalmo’s The Litch this week and I was again impressed by James’s wizardry, this time with masks, snot fabricated from cottage cheese and blood from chocolate syrup and food coloring. It was a messy, fun, albeit, occasionally odorous time. It’s amazing what creativity we have when we use it and James is a truly creative fellow.

Who Wore It Best? The Litch or the Bitch?

Who Wore It Best?  The Litch or the Bitch?

The Litch was the first film I’ve ever needed a stunt double.  It’s really funny to see someone in the same outfit as you, playing your role.  I sort of have the Patty Duke Show jingle ringing in my head each time I see a picture of my double, Alan Maxson.

What I love about my stunt double’s look is the overall doughy look of the molding on his face.  It matches my skin tone well.  And those pouty lips…hilarious.  My lips are ample, but those lips are ghoulishly puffy like the Botox nightmares we sometimes see in La-la-land.  I must admit that Alan is better at wielding that humongous knife than me, but I bet we could go head-to-head in rolling pin assault skills. Be sure to catch The Litch when it comes out later this year.

Behind the Scenes of The Litch

This week, I got to have a fun part in The Litch, directed by James Balsalmo of Acid Bath Productions.  It was a high-spirited, improvisational shoot.  Coming out later this year, the film also stars Tom Sizemore, the legendary  Lloyd Kaufman and fellow scream queen Genoveva Rossi.  James is creative, collaborative and fun and I told our manager Matt Chassin that he was like the “Christopher Guest of horror”.  This is sure to be a fun horror comedy.

Armin Nasseri of Seeking Valentina fame was also on-hand helping with our scene. It was great to have his positive energy there.  I can’t wait to see it debut on the big screen later this year!
