I had a crazy amount of fun doing makeup for this short film. You Only Die Once (#YODO) is a horror/comedy about a trio of vampire-killing girls who are out for blood. Literally.
I began my shopping spree at Alcone in Times Square, where my great friend Jacob Hyzer was eagerly awaiting to hear what my latest project was all about. "Ooooh... you're going to need BLOOD! And SLIME! Mix them together to make bloody slime!" He began grabbing things off of the shelves eagerly for me. A Skin Illustrator palette for the veins. Jars of 3rd Degree for bite marks and the like. Little plastic pellets to melt into fangs. It was a really fun shopping experience.
The cast was phenomenal. All amazing actors and comics and writers and the like, they kept me thoroughly entertained at all times. As if the script itself wasn't hilarious enough, the cast and crew were equally fun to work with. Amanda Goodman blew us all away by writing, directing, producing, and starring in this gem of a short. You may recognize her from her hilarious role as a flight attendant in this season's Broad City episode "Getting There" (Season 3, Episode 9). Lyssa Mandel and Philip Casale of the tremendously popular podcast "The Bitch Seat" also star in the film, as well as the extremely talented Teegan Leah Curitz, John DeSilvestri, Jen Keefe, Janet Kim, and Lianna Nielsen.
For a silly good time, you can watch YODO here:
Here are some fun behind-the-scenes photos for you to enjoy. And stay tuned for more episodes! Thanks to YODO's popularity, Amanda B. Goodman has decided to turn it into a web series! So you haven't seen the last of these sexy vampire hunters yet!
