Any prosthetic makeup artists out there in the community?
Thanks for the tip.Can't speak for the rest, but if interested, the absolute best fangs you could get in my opinion is sold by a company called Scarecrow.
They sell small and large size, the molding material is easy to use (no heat or plastic, just mix powder and liquid and place to set), casts in minutes, and reusable daily for years, and the quality is excellent!!! Been wearing mine for years no issues.
I have talked to 3 professional makeup artists and all gave rough estimates of 5 to 10 thousand dollars per character to develop the makeup and do a one day shoot on the music video. One also said an additional $500 per day would be needed for the movie. My initial breakdown of a shooting schedule shows the main furry character in front of the camera for 16 days.Not sure what kind of budget you were aiming for, though 20k is usually enough for one costume.
Though making it out of prosthetic makeup means you will need to rebuild it each time. I'm not an expert in that area of prosthetic makeup as a costume but you are going to run at least 3 times the cost of theatrical costume piece.
The amount of materials, props, costumes needed for any length is not going to vary much in cost from a 2min music video to a feature 2hr film. It depends more on the scenes.
If you need help let me know, I do know some in the industry who can help
Yup. That's how I estimated $20,000 to make the music video. Not too worried about distribution cost on that as it is to be used to promote funding the feature, and prove it can be done.Location, utilities, permits, tech, usually run another 5000 to 10000 as well
Then you got distribution costs afterwards
