For sale are a pair of original production expression life-casts taken from Wilhelm Von Homburg as part of his role for Vigo the Carpathian in Ghostbusters 2.. I acquired these from Tim Lawrence, creature shop supervisor for Ghostbusters 2. The "grumpy" life-cast is Screen Used. It was used to create the effect where you first see Vigos face emerge from the painting.. In the photos above I included the actual scene and an excerpt taken from a "Making of Ghostbusters" book showing how the process was done.
Sadly I must part with these amazing Ghostbusters artifacts. I truly cherish them and don't want to but times are rough and my bulldog needs urgent medical care. Also it is important to note that since these are originals, you could also do whatever you wish with them.
Cast them, make copies for your friends/to sell, or just hang them up and admire them forever, anything you want! Here is the original description from when I acquired these. Hi, my name is Tim Lawrence and I was the Creature Shop supervisor for Ghostbusters 2. 2 face casts - black gelcoat surface backed with rigid polyfoam. Very stable, not plaster or slushed urethane.Outfitted with recessed wall hanging loops. Small bubble in lower lip of'yell' cast. Vigo the Carpathian expression life-casts. For the shot where Vigo first begins to emerge from the painting, we developed a gag involving a dental-dam, rubber sheet, front-projection screen and a fiberglass copy of Wilhelms life cast. I put Thom Floutz on this as he was doing a similar gag for the bath-tub monster.
These tests went on for a few weeks using different versions of Wilhelms cast, different tautness in the rubber screen, different speeds. I forget who the camera crew were. These expression casts were from Wilhelms main casting day and were originally made to have a record of how his face moved in extreme positions.
This helps make decisions about where to lay the appliance edges. We had em, so we used em. Anyway, the final emerge gag was accomplished with the neutral cast.
