Intro: Special FX FAKE BBQ'd Human Fingers ("lady Fingers" for a Zombie Dinner Party)
Some time ago we did a job for a zombie tv show; they asked us to make a heaping serving of BBQ'd "lady fingers" so that a family of zombies could chow down at the dinner table. The requirements were that the fingers looked real, that the "skin" would tear away (like rubbery chicken skin) to reveal knuckle bones and that it would be food safe for the actors. For the life of me I cannot find the process photos but I did stumble across the final product photos, plus the uber dorky video I sent to the art director to show how the fingers worked. I didn't build these; Tina and special fx superstar James VDK took the job on, but I thought I'd show y'all how they turned out.
