Shock and Gore: Creating the Eyeballs

Shock and Gore: The Films of Herschell Gordon Lewis was a very ambitious set for us. Our release brought together fourteen of the Godfather of Gore’s most essential films (including nine Blu-ray world debuts) and a whole host of extra goodies -  including custom made eyeballs - and we were lucky to have special effects guru Dan Martin on board to create these eyeballs (from scratch!) for this project. 

Dan's work has been featured in films from around the world including High-Rise, Batman Begins, Nina Forever and The Human Centipede II to name a few - you can check out his full filmography here.

During the production process, Dan and his team very kindly documented the creation of the eyeballs with some great behind the scenes images that we have the pleasure of sharing with you today.  A HUGE thanks goes out to Dan and his team for their help with this project - we really couldn't have done it without them! 

Without further ado, we pass things over to Dan to narrate the journey of the Shock and Gore eyeballs...
