‘Bloody Chamber’ SFX shoot with Vanessa Budgett.
Based on the book Bloody Chamber, and the slaughtered wives locked up in a dungeon and inspired by Angela Carters short story about a sadistic french Marquis, whose new bride realises he has slight murderous tendencies, when she discovers a room concealing the bodies of his previous wives. It seemed like the perfect basis for a bit of gore! Using only school friends and a local vault at the back of a shop Vanessa set about applying her skills in theatrical makeup to each of the girls. Our task was to visually capture the scenes from the book as each model was readied for camera.
