One of the worst interviewers ever. Bartalos was dynamic and even though Barney is a difficult interviewee the interviewer was a disaster. Very disappointing.

Description

*Gabe Bartalos *is a prosthetic effects artist who specializes in character effects and explicit gore. He has developed the prosthetic make-up effects for Barney since 1991 and in 2004 he made his directorial debut with the surrealistic film Skinned Deep, which he also wrote and produced. Bartalos has worked on cult classics such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986), Leprechaun 4: In Space (1996), and Godzilla (1998). His work pushes us to rethink conventional visual effects and set design. 

Mathew Barney is an American artist who works in sculpture, photography, drawing, and film. His epic Cremaster Cycle, explores the process of creation through sculpture and video in five feature-length films. These films are imaginative and brilliant and examine the transcendence of physical limitations within an interdisciplinary art practice.
