You know everything I do is is sort of based out of necessity.
As much as I love my job I like to make my job easier I think like everybody else so.
When we are doing Michael Bay's film Pearl Harbor of course there was hundreds of extras as well as the lead cast.
We at a very small crew make -- artist.
And it was one of those situations where I wanted to create a way of keeping continuity on -- day to day basis over the six months of shooting right and that's really where the idea of taken a tattoo and turning it into a makeup application.

That's why you see movies like nutty professor man.
He -- Wolf man in and movies like this often win the award.
You know I was fortunate enough to be a part of the film passion of the Christ as -- nominated.
