MAY '98, NYC-
Rick Field, writer/director and longtime Glass Eye Pix associate, casts Fessenden in American Movie Classics Halloween Sweepstakes commercial!! Fessenden plays Goul Dad in makeup designed and applied by Tim Considine of Direct Effects. Budget and director's enthusiasm allows for royal treatment in the tradition of Jack Pierce (creator of Universal Monsters like "Frankenstein" and "Wolfman") with full head cast, prosthetic deformities and applied beard scruff. A nice experience for those with a penchant for horror movies.
