The Skeleton in this series is played by a friend of mine, Ben Eastabrook ( http://www.beastabrook.wix.com/beastabrook). The mask was a Shoppers Drug Mart special which he touched up by painting over the eyes and deepening the shadows around the sockets/nose area. We got incredibly luck with the timing of these lights - a car was passing and the shutter dropped at just the right moment.
There was a lot of traffic on the night we chose to shoot, so every 5-10 minutes we were yelling "car" like a group of 8-year-olds playing street hockey. Occasionally, however, it worked to our advantage.
The Shape in my Shadow Figure series is played my good friend Mike Kozek ( http://www.mikekozek.com) and he was an incredibly good sport about the whole thing. It took a while to get the hand position right, and his shoulder was aching by the end of it, not to mention that he was wearing of my old shirts binder-clipped to his face.
