Frustration: Unfamiliar things fans took to Twitter to vent their frustrations
The fourth season has already brought a lot of twists, turns, and plot surprises – as well as the show’s most terrifying villain: the scary hell monster, Vekna, played by British actor Jamie Campbell Bower.
The mind-blowing finale of Season 4 Part 1 revealed that the real identity of Vekna was Henry Creel aka Number One, shocking the audience.
And before the release of Season 4 Part 2, the famous makeup and visual effects artist Barry Gower had teased what fans can expect from the second part of the season, which will include two feature-length episodes.
Coming soon: Fans have been eagerly awaiting the last two episodes of Stranger Things Season 4 on Netflix, which was released on Friday.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk, Barry said: ‘I can’t really say much without giving things away, but we agree on what we’ve done in the last two episodes. [in season four] At the end of episode seven, where we see Jamie Campbell Bower’s storyline systematically, and at the end of episode seven, there’s a big revelation that we found out that he’s clearly a bastard. ‘
‘So his transformation at the end of that episode as he’s going upside down from the Netherlands is a bit like where we can take him to the next episode.’
Barry teased: ‘Without giving too much, the last two episodes have a lot of Vecna, and there are some very exciting stuff that we were able to do for it.’
Horror: Season 4 brings many twists, twists, and plot surprises – as well as the show’s most terrifying villain: Horror Hell Monster, played by British actor Jamie Campbell Bower.
Earlier, he shared the inspiration behind Vekna in a video interview with Vanity Fair, in which he also described the hard work of directing the couple to bring the Duffer brothers’ vision to life.
Despite the fact that the program uses the latest in CGI and digital effects, when it came to Vecna, it relied on more traditional specialized FX technologies.
Jamie shocked fans when he revealed that he had to spend more than seven hours every day on the set to transform into a scary monster.
Skilled: Now renowned makeup and visual effects artist Barry Gower has pierced what fans can expect from the second half of the season, which will include two feature-length episodes.
That process is now documented in a fascinating Netflix time-lapse video that reveals a glimpse into the long and difficult techniques used to transform Jamie into Vekna.
In the video, Jamie is seen sitting in a makeup chair for hours, while a team of performers carefully apply pre-made prosthetics to her face, hands and body.
But according to Barry, the difficult process of bringing Vekna to life for the small screen began long before the actor began his adaptation.
Speaking at Vanity Fair, the Emmy-winning prosthetic artist revealed that the creators of Stranger Things, brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, saw him and his team at work in Game of Thrones and approached him to make their season four villains – especially the evil monster in the HBO series, The Knight King. .
He added that the Duffer Brothers were also impressed by the radiation-burn Barry et al created for HBO’s Chernobyl and wanted to use those elements for their own ‘iconic’ villain.
Tropper: Jamie shocked fans when he revealed that he had to spend more than seven hours every day on the set to transform into a scary monster.
Note the details: Jamie took the opportunity to listen to music that helped inspire her character while in the makeup trailer.
After creating concept art by artist Michael Meyer, who also runs the VFX department, the Duffer Brothers and Barry settled on their final vision for Vecna - and special effects artists prepared to turn that image into a living, breathing monster.
Barry recalled: ‘We were sent those designs and then we got a live cast of actor Jamie Campbell Bower.
“Since then, we’ve built a very large mass of characters, starting with a full body live cast made of plaster of Paris.”
Daily routine: Small holes were created in the ears so that the actor could actually hear through the costume.
The team then performed a process called ‘floating’, in which Jamie’s plaster cast was dipped into the tank and painted with a soap product, before they sculpted in wax modeling clay.
The next step was to separate the sculpture from the modeling clay, in which the entire cast had to be submerged in water overnight.
Barry explained that the process allowed the water to reactivate the soap product so that the plasticine could ‘float off’ and then be carefully removed from the cast in sections.
The creators of Iconic: Stranger Things, Matt and Ross Duffer, approached Gower with the aim of creating their version of Game of Thrones Bad Man, The Knight King.
There were approximately 25 overlapping prosthetics to create the entire character injected with materials such as silicone foam latex.
It was decided that they would use full body makeup instead of creating a pullover suit so that the artist’s movement during filming would not create a big impact due to the costume being a bunch.
To do this, they used silicone medical gel to create prosthetics because it is soft enough to allow an actor to walk and stretch while wearing.
Jamie was also seen wearing a foam latex prosthetic finger extension on her left arm, which was squeezed out of the employee’s hand a few minutes later.
Stranger: Gower joked, ‘We had nothing else to get in Jamie’
Scary: The team worked on many scary looks for the popular series
However, Barry understood the fact that Jamie never complained about the pain or the length of time that stuck to her clothes each day.
The actor wore his own teeth to create the rotten look seen on the Vecna, as well as full scleral contact lenses.
Barry joked, ‘There was nothing else we could find in Jamie.
Although the Vekna costume was ‘90 percent practical ’, the show used some animation effects to create dynamic pulses in the villain’s body.
Aiming high: The Duffer Brothers were ready to create their own iconic villain for the series
For wavy skin tones, the show has a special makeup palette designed by Premier Products using a set of colors inspired by various marine life and human wounds.
The first seven episodes of Stranger Things season four debuted on May 27, and the volume of the series is set to premiere on July 2.
The eighth series will run for one hour and 25 minutes and the ninth series will run for about two and a half hours.
Fans of the series will surely hope that the final episodes will reveal Vekna’s final death – how Jamie’s human character in the recently-released Volume 1 episodes turned into a monster after being cast upside down by Millie Bobby Brown’s character Eleven. .
