“Swamp Thing” on DVD today
Look for my extended interview with Dick “Swamp Thing” Durock in Friday’s Weekend Look in the Oklahoman, but here’s a a bit about the makeup process that I couldn’t quite fit in the article:
Durock said the makeup process on the first feature took nearly four hours, but decreased to two hours on the second film.
“By the time we got to the series, which ironically was the best makeup and best costume of all of them, it was down to 45 minutes,” Durock said. “We did it just by experience.”
Durock said on the first film, the “Swamp Thing” face is made up of 10 to 15 appliances. But in the series, several of those pieces were condensed into one.
“We could use more of my own face and own eyes for the series,” Durock said.
