Special effects and Make-up Artist Josh Turi talked with our Gadi Elkon about the creation of Jules in JULES.
Jules follows Milton (Kingsley) who lives a quiet life of routine in a small western Pennsylvania town, but finds his day upended when a UFO and its extra-terrestrial passenger crash land in his backyard. Before long, Milton develops a close relationship with the extra-terrestrial he calls “Jules.” Things become complicated when two neighbors (Harris and Curtin) discover Jules and the government quickly closes in. What follows is a funny, wildly inventive ride as the three neighbors find meaning and connection later in life – thanks to this unlikely stranger.
Josh and Gadi talk about Turi’s origins working with TROMA Entertainment and the decades of amazing work that followed. Josh dives into the team that helped bring to life JULES. He discusses the molding process of actress Jade Quon, and the unique qualities of this specific prosthetic outfit. Gadi even got to talk with Josh about his movie blood and so so much more!
