Here are a few photos of props made by Margaret Marie Hubbard and Jeffrey Walton for the film. Included are the Monster’s heart, progress photo and completed photo. Justine’s neck brace, progress photo and completed photo. Also, a photo of the gears made for the Monster’s neck piece. This was attached to the Monster and was made to actually shoot steam out of it. These gears are completely original items. I drew up the plans for crafting them and Jeffrey Walton used a CNC machine to craft the base gears and a die grinder to sculpt and shape it. Everything for the neck gears was made specifically for the amazing Matt Risoldi who played The Monster.
Thank you for your continued support!
