Rick Baker, Monster Maker

Sunday, November 10th, 2019

The Internet has taught me that I’m a very casual fan. I didn’t know Rick Baker by name, but I enjoyed his interview with Joe Rogan, where he talks about making movie monsters, like the eponymous American Werewolf in London. He’s retired now, but he has a massive new two-volume book out, Rick Baker: Metamorphosis.

One amusing bit of trivia from the interview is that he supplied some masks that got used in Star Wars‘ iconic cantina scene — and the band was not there. The band was filmed in another country, much later, in post-production.
