Tommy Lee Wallace is best known to fans as the creator of the iconic Michael Myers mask in the original Halloween, and he even donned the Myers mask for the closet scene where Michael is attacking Laurie. He also has quite the resume as a film producer, director, editor, and screenwriter.
Tommy originally created the mask by purchasing a William Shatner mask, which he then doctored by cutting the eye holes bigger, yanked off the sideburns, darkened the hair and spray-painted the whole thing dead white.
Tommy is also known for directing horror classics such as Halloween III: Season of the Witch, the 1990 mini-series adaption IT and Fright Night Part 2.
He is a long-time friend and collaborator of director John Carpenter, receiving his first credit as art director on Carpenter’s directorial debut Dark Star. Along with Charles Bornstein, he edited both the original Halloween and the Fog.

Andrew Santagato is a Toronto based ‘Mask Maker’ and ‘Make-Up Artist’. In 2002, he studied Dick Smith’s Advanced Make-Up Course. Thanks to Dick’s help, Greg Nicotero (KNB EFX) hired him 2 years later to work on George A. Romero’s ‘Land Of The Dead’, which was shot in his hometown of Toronto, Canada.

He’s created such pieces as a Fred Gwynne “Dead is Better” Tribute piece for the Documentary “Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary, as well as Mr. Hockey himself, Don Cherry, along with many more pieces.
Being a Horror fan since he was a child, movies like the original “Halloween”, Michael Jackson’s “THRILLER” video and “Creepshow” were the big instigators that heavily influenced the start of his lifelong obsession with the horror genre and creating works of art to reflect that passion. He loves creating pieces from his favorite films, along with Original creations, and enjoys attending conventions to display his work, and share his passion for the genre with other fans. Andrew loves the art of creating something from scratch through Sculpture, as well as the process of Molding, Casting, Hairing, Painting etc., in order to bring his visions to life.
