My wife Cathy and I are among the privileged few in all history to get to create, build and operate an Animatronic Shark for a movie☺! My youngest daughter Rachael Schultz, actually got to appear as a double in a few scenes too! Fond memories.
GhostShark was our intro into providing Practical Film FX. What a pressure cooker time that was for us back then. We actually were contracted to build all the giant Gator props and body parts for SyFy's RedNeck Gators during the final weeks of finishing the GhostShark!
Then without even a breather we were again thrust right into developing and building SyFy's 11-foot long Bearing SeaBeast and chestburster babies! Fond memories.
I still have all the molds. Perhaps I'll build another mechanical shark again one day soon☺ ....
