The BTS for 'Skin Deep' showcases the nutty practical FX created by Sara Feehan, who details how she created the practical FX lifecasts for actors Diana and Ali Chappell (our mother/daughter duo) and Steve Kasan. Following the lifecasting session, we go behind the scenes on the 2 days of filming the horror short. Shot on location in Toronto, specifically the apartment of the film's writer and of the Cakes Cove bakery with a killer crew. On-set sound for the short was recorded with the Rode NTG-2 inside a Rode Blimp into a Tascam DR60-D. Most of DOP Sabrina Spilotro's shots (filmed with Rokinon Cine DS glass) were made to "breathe" by having our FS700+Odyssey Q mounted on a Kessler Crane Travel Jib, with two shots (including the final frames) filmed with a split dioptre filter. The film was then cut together in Adobe Premiere CC 2018.
