24th & 25th January, 2009
Alexandra Palace, London, U.K.


Doug, along with David Martí, Montse Ribé and the crew of DDT Efectos Especiales took a couple of days off from filming Serge Gainsbourg: Vie Héroïque in Paris and travelled by train to join colleagues at IMATS where they were part of one of the highlights of the show - the Hellboy II: The Golden Army panel, which included Oscar™-nominated Mike Elizalde of Spectral Motion, Simon Webber, one of Doug's make-up artists on the film, Iván Pohárnok of Hungary's FilmFX, make-up artist and sculptor Anthony Parker, Leo Burton and Cliff Wallace of Britain's Creature Effects. There was also a surprise visit by Oscar-nominated Thom Floutz, who was delighted to meet with friends and colleagues at the show.

Doug also had the chance to meet students of the art of film make-up and design, especially a very talented bunch of young artists from the University of Bolton's SFX course, who were keen to talk to Doug about portfolios and the pros and cons of working in the film industry.

The Doug Jones Experience would like to thank everyone who sent in photographs, and also for their kindness and generosity towards not only Doug but also Webmaster Helen, who attended the show to see the HBII panel. Thanks, guys. You made an already amazing day into a very special experience.
