Quote: "I had been involved in makeup effects since the early 1970s. I had mentored under Bert Holmes and Tom Burman, and had just started my own company before Part 3 came along. I was actually working on this Canadian horror movie Deadly Eyes with Kenny Myers, who was the effects supervisor, and he was offered this job - we didn't know it was a Friday the 13th. But we went out to interview with the producers, and they said, 'Here's the scenario. You're trapped on a farm, and think of everything there you could use to kill somebody. Come up with ten examples.' So we went to lunch, came up with ideas, then came back and handled it over to them. And they just went, 'Okay, ignore what we just said. Here's the script and this is what we're going to do.' Then we found out it was Part 3, and in 3-D. Which was new, but I had also just done this other 3-D thing called Parasite, with Demi Moore. So we got the job.|
What was a little unusual was that when we started the show, we knew upfront that they had actually already hired Stan Winston, although strictly to sculpt Jason's makeup. We would have to do a head cast of Richard Brooker, then deliver that to Stan, who would sculpt it and get approval for it. Then we'd make a mold of it and then run all the appliances, bring them back to Stan, and Stan would paint them. Apparently, Stan had also done some uncredited work on Friday the 13th Part 2, and was a friend of Steve Miner." - pg. 83, Crystal Lake Memories
