UK Horror Scene unveil the ‘Frankenopress’ bust for The Monster Charity Project 2017
We are very proud and honoured to unveil the second in the series of Frankenstein inspired busts as part of the amazing Monster Charity Project 2017.
Here UK Horror Scene can exclusively show ‘Frankenopress’ – a wonderful bust by Chris Stephens of Chris Stephens Creations.
The bust will be part of 28 created by the UK’s top SPFX artists which will be individually auctioned off on eBay starting October 31st 2017 and all proceeds will go to Make-A-Wish UK .
28 of the UK’s top prop-making, sculpting and SPFX make-up artists have been brought together to take part in a unique charity project. Each artist has been given a bespoke Frankenstein-inspired monster bust, created and supplied by SVFX University of Bolton Special & Visual Effects team, with the simple instruction: Customise him into any design you like.
Once customised, the artists then donate the finished bust back to the Monster Charity Project organisers who will auction them off via an online auction site. 100% of the proceeds raised from the auction will be donated to Make-A-Wish UK. All the artists and the back room project crew donate their time and skills totally free of charge.
Last year the same project team raised a staggering £28,000 for Make-A-Wish at Star Wars Celebration London with a similar project featuring an iconic Star Wars Helmet. 30 artists took part creating such custom designs as Deadpool, Judge Dredd , Batman and a Studio Ghibli inspired design.
The busts will be going on a UK tour during 2017 taking in such conventions as Horror Con UK, finishing the year at Creaturegeddon where many of the featured artists can be seen sharing their work and also available for a chat.
People will be able to start viewing the completed busts from May 2017 via various social media outlets and the above mentioned conventions, the project busts then go to auction on October 31st 2017, ending November 5th 2017
