I haven't been able to post for a while. You might be wondering why...if you care at all. LOL Well the truth is, I was on a new skill based reality show on the SyFy Network, Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge. The show airs March 25th 2014. See me, and 9 other artists compete for a change at $50,000 and a Job working at Jim Henson's Creature Shop in Studio City, CA.

I hope you enjoy this amazing new series in its first season. I look forward to hearing your thought. I apologize ahead of time if I am unable to respond. The show was announced this morning on and my facebook page blow up. I could barely keep up. I will try to answer any questions I can. From everyone on the show, we appreciate your watching! Thanks!!!!!!…

Escape’ Design FX was founded in 1996. In the beginning our focus was on costuming, but since 2003 EDFX has expanded our focus to special effects, props, and makeup. Though we have earned numerous third parting contracts on some huge Hollywood productions, we have always considered independent film as our mainstay.

“It’s a bigger challenge working on indie films. Anyone can create amazing films with access to huge Hollywood dollars; but creating amazing films with extremely limited funds shows incredible imagination and ingenuity.”

Russ Adams

EDFX founded Independent Filmmaking, an association of filmmakers catering to truly independent film productions. EDFX prides itself on creating high quality products to fit into indie film budgets.

EDFX expanded its view in 2007 creating an independent production company called Ritual Pictures, and in 2011 Kerr Clan Films, a stop motion animation house. Keeping its roots in the indie world is extremely important to us. As indie filmmakers ourselves, we know the struggles of creating something spectacular on a limited budget. We take pride in catering to those independent films budgets.

Contact us with your project needs. From Special Effects to fabricating filmming equipment, we can help!

You're welcome! BTW, would you please give my sister a few tips about special effects design? She's looking to go to the Art Institute for it and possibly start a career with it and I'm not exactly sure what to tell her to start with, fundamentally. I know it requires concept sketches and such but I think they only have to be basic sketches, not exactly as refined as what an illustrator or character designer produces or I could be wrong. She's :icongreen-bullseye: I would appreciate your helping her get a good start and maybe showing her what to expect as a special effects designer.
