I've been going through old photos and then watched Michael Jackson's Thriller video again recently, and realized without even knowing that I had taken a photo of the house in the video.
This is a still from the Thriller video.
This is my image from the historic Angeleno Heights in Echo Park, Los Angeles. It just goes to show what a good compositor can do.
The make up effects were done by Rick Baker, who also did Batman Forever, Harry and the Hendersons, Men in Black I and II, Star Wars Episode IV, & countless other great films.
