Testimonials from Hollywood professionals about the quality of Forsche Design Life Masks. Andy Schoneberg is a two time Emmy award winning makeup artist for "The Walking Dead." Below is the Humphrey Bogart display he created using one of Forsche's Life Masks. "I met William 28 years ago(!) on Dead Heat. He was a master life caster then, doing excellent work. He's a fantastic artist and technician. William's life cast collection is without equal. If William is offering a life cast of a particular person, you can bet he's done the legwork to make sure that it's the best, most accurate cast available. Period." -Andy Schoneberg Dan Platt's work includes "Terminator 2", Tupac Shakur's hologram for "Coachella" and he was also the Facial Model Lead responsible for youthenizing Jeff Bridges as Clu for "Tron: Legacy." "Bill, I've been collecting life casts from you for 20 years and without fail, your castings are undisputedly the sharpest, distortion free and most accurate castings in the industry. How do I know? Every morning Ebay sends out a fresh listing of available life casts and I am appalled on what is being offered by your competitors. When I had the privilege to work with you at Greg Cannom's in the early 90's, your life cast work was without flaw and that same attention to detail and craftsmanship is evident in every cast that you sell. I could not and most importantly, WILL NOT buy any life cast from anyone other than you. The success of my career depends heavily on the solid understanding of facial anatomy, form and structure. For the last two decades, your life casts gave me that invaluable understanding. And without that knowledge, I would never have been able to correctly interpret poorly lit or artistically shot photographs when I recreated Tupac for Coachella." -Dan Platt Tom Spina: Sculptor, Movie Prop Conservation Artist and Collector works on an original "Mrs. Doubtfire" appliance displayed on a custom Robin Williams life mask display bust provided by William Forsche of Forsche Design. "To any and all collectors of lifecasts, You will simply never find another source like William Forsche. His decades of film FX experience and encyclopedic knowledge are a benefit not found in any other lifecast seller, but the real value is in the exquisite quality of the castings themselves. Each is a work of art in its own right, always with highest level of detail of any available, and the closest generation to the original actor's face. I am never disappointed when I open a package from Forsche! I've counted on Bill for reference busts when recreating famous faces and also for things like copies of Robin Williams' head, to which we applied two sets of original Mrs. Doubtfire appliances for display. In order to achieve that, we needed castings that were properly sized and without warp. Bill delivered, as he always does! I can highly recommend his work to anyone interested and look forward to my next purchase!" Sincerely, -Tom Spina Daniel Horne is a multiple award winning artist, painter and mask maker whose work is in many private collections worldwide including: Guillermo del Toro, Greg Nicotero and Rick Baker. "William, Thank you again for offering great life casts, I have ten of yours and they are far superior to anything else that is offered." -Daniel Horne Mike Hill is a portrait sculptor and artist whose work is in many private collections, Mike has also sculpted for television's "American Horror Story" and film projects such as "Men in Black 3" and "The Wolfman." "Life masks are a valuable tool in the process of sculpting a human head or likeness. It doesnt matter if it isn’t the actual person, understanding the folds and planes of the face is far easier to understand if you hold one in your hand . William Forsche is my go-to for any life mask." -Mike Hill Why purchase our life masks when there are cheaper plastic castings and other sources available? "The advent of the internet has put collecting life masks into the hands of many people outside the film industry; I have personally acquired some of these life masks from various internet sources and have been extremely disappointed with the quality and the distortion (shrinkage etc.) of these castings. The average person outside the film industry doesn't have studio grade life masks to compare their castings with. With over 30 years of selectively collecting life masks it has always been my goal to obtain the highest quality masks available. Not only have I been a collector I am also a Hollywood life mask artist who has created some of the castings that exist in private collections, museums and have been used in the production of many of the major Hollywood films which I have worked on. My professional experience gives me the insight and the ability to compare similar castings and grade them on their detail, shrinkage and distortion. It is my goal and my passion to always make the highest quality life masks possible and it is my pleasure to share these casts with the discriminating life mask collector." -William Forsche Select Thumbnails Below To View Larger Images Forsche Design's white plaster lifecast of Grace Kelley on the left compared to theirs which is on the right.

Lifecast artist Willa Shalit invited William Forsche to New York City in 1986 to teach her his lifecasting techniques, after seeing the torso and face casting of Hugh Heffner's girlfriend that he created for the Playboy Mansion. Forsche was later asked to assist Willa Shalit with the smiling lifecast of Stevie Wonder created for his Album cover "Characters." Many of Forsche's lifecasting techniques were also utilized for some of Shalit's more refined lifecasts in her book "Life Cast: Behind the Mask." Forsche works on a life mask of Brooke Shields in Shalit's lifecast studio, New York City circa 1986.

Raised in a tenement and acting in community theaters since age eight, Nimoy did not make his Hollywood debut until he was 20, with a bit part in Queen for a Day (1951) and another as a ballplayer in the perennial Rhubarb (1951). After two years in the United States Army, he was still getting small, often uncredited parts, like an Army telex operator in Them! (1954). His part as Narab, a Martian finally friendly to Earth, in the closing scene in the corny Republic serial Zombies of the Stratosphere (1952), somewhat foreshadowed the role which would make him a household name: Mr. Spock, the half-human/half-Vulcan science officer on Star Trek (1966) one of television's all-time most successful series. His performance won him three Emmy nominations and launched his career as a writer and director, notably of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986), the story of a humpback whale rescue that proved the most successful of the Star Trek movies. Stage credits have included "Fiddler on the Roof", "Oliver", "Camelot" and "Equus". He has hosted the well-known television series In Search of... (1976) and Ancient Mysteries (1994), authored several volumes of poetry and guest-starred on two episodes of The Simpsons (1989). In the latter years of his career, he played Mustafa Mond in NBC's telling of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World (1998), voiced Sentinel Prime in the blockbuster Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011), and played Spock again in two new Star Trek films, Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013).

Was approached to direct Star Trek: Generations (1994), as well as appear as Spock in the film. He declined because Spock's role in the movie would have been a cameo. Nimoy stated that he did not want to play Spock, or direct any Star Trek movie in which Spock was not an integral part of the plot. Spock's character was consequently edited from the script.

Father of Adam Nimoy and Julie Nimoy. Has one stepson, named Aaron. Got his famous role of Spock on Star Trek (1966) in part because discussions among writers and producers of the series about the character of Spock led them to put out the word that they were looking for "a tall, thin guy" to play the role of an alien crew member. Casting director Joseph D'Agosta remembered Nimoy from his work in an earlier World War II series, The Lieutenant (1963) and gave him a call about this role. And so was born his most famous role and start as a popular culture icon. The mineral Yominium Sulfide in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986), is named after him.

In many interviews since the beginning of Star Trek (1966), Leonard Nimoy has recounted the origin of the Vulcan salute, which he introduced into the series. In one such interview (with The A.V. Club in July 2010), he explained, "The gesture that I introduced into Star Trek, the split-fingered Vulcan salute, we'll call it... that came from an experience -- I'm going all the way back to my childhood again -- when I was about 8 years old, sitting in the synagogue at high holiday services with my family. There comes a moment in the ceremony when the congregation is blessed by a group of gentlemen known as Kohanim, members of the priestly tribe of the Hebrews. And the blessing is one that we see in the Old and New Testament: 'May the Lord bless you and keep you; may the Lord cause His countenance to shine upon you', and so forth. When they give this blessing, you're told not to look! You're supposed to avert your eyes. I peeked, and I saw these guys with their hands stretched out - there were five or six of them, all with their hands stretched out toward the congregation - in that gesture, that split-fingered gesture. Some time later, I learned that the shape that hand creates is a letter in the Hebrew alphabet, the letter shin, which is the first letter in the word Shaddai, which is the name of the Almighty. So the suggestion is that they're using a symbol of God's name with their hands as they bless the congregation.". Grandfather of Madeleine Nimoy and Jonah Nimoy. Best known by the public (and by many sci-fi fans) for his starring role as Mr. Spock on the original Star Trek (1966) series. Nimoy is the only actor to have portrayed the same "character" in two separate American mediums (television, then film) longer than anyone else. From 1966 to 2013 (47 years), he was Mr. Spock. "Was" is the key here, as Spock was finally killed off. Also, character is in quotation because Jack Benny and the Three Stooges were on from the radio days to movies, then television, but they played their roles using their real names. Some soap opera stars also have beat this in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia but are only a character on television exclusively. Also of note is that Spock is a worldwide known character. On February 19, 2015, he was rushed to UCLA Medical Center for severe chest pains after a 911 call and has been in and out of hospitals for the "past several months". His final Tweet, posted 4 days before his death, was "A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP" (Live Long and Prosper). Leonard Nimoy passed away on February 27, 2015, a month away from what would have been his 84th birthday on March 26. He and Luke and the Tenderfoot: The Boston Kid (1955) co-star Richard Bakalyan both died on February 27, 2015. His Twitter account has 1.1 million followers. He followed the Twitter accounts of: Spencer Schwartz, Walter Koenig, Jonathan Frakes, Patrick Stewart, Greg Grunberg, Ian McKellen, Dana Delaney, Michael Powell, Gerard Way, Simon Pegg, George Takei, Bruno Mars, Aaron Bay-Schuck, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, TrekMovie.com, Ben Stiller, Barack Obama, The Futuristics, Hammer Museum, and Zachary Quinto. Prior to performing on Star Trek, Nimoy played a role on the series "Wagon Train". The original title of Star Trek was "Wagon Train to the Stars". Personal Quotes (45) [on working with William Shatner on the original Star Trek (1966) series] Bill was very passionate about the work. Unfortunately, Bill was passionate about everything. Spock is definitely one of my best friends. When I put on those ears, it's not like just another day. When I become Spock, that day becomes something special. [on being asked to executive-produce the proposed sequel series Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987)] I thanked him and wished him well with the project, but explained it simply couldn't work. I felt the original Star Trek (1966)'s success was due to many factors: the themes, the characters, the chemistry between the actors, the timing (the future-embracing 1960s)... There was simply no way, I told him, that anyone could duplicate all those things and be successful with a second Star Trek show. And so I opted out... While my argument sounded perfectly rational at the time, my ego was certainly involved. When I said to Frank Mancuso and the assembled execs, "How can you hope to capture lightning in a bottle again?", part of me was *really* saying, "How can you ever hope to do it without *us*?"... You know, crow isn't so bad. It tastes like chicken. My folks came to the US as immigrants, aliens, and became citizens. I was born in Boston, a citizen, went to Hollywood and became an alien. [on the death of Spock] I thought everything was managed in excellent taste. I feel proud. When it was first suggested to me that Spock would die, I was hesitant. It seemed exploitative. But now that I've seen how it was accomplished, I think it was a very good idea. Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end. That is the exploration that awaits you! Not mapping stars and studying nebula, but charting the unknown possibilities of existence. The miracle is this: the more we share the more we have. I think about myself as like an ocean liner that's been going full speed for a long distance, and the captain pulls the throttle back all the way to 'stop,' but the ship doesn't stop immediately, does it? It has its own momentum and it keeps on going, and I'm very flattered that people are still finding me useful. I think it's my adventure, my trip, my journey, and I guess my attitude is, let the chips fall where they may. Which is probably the reason why I work exclusively in black and white... to highlight that contrast. But if you're talking about fine art work, then I think you have to ask yourself some pretty deep questions about why it is you want to take pictures and what it is you want to say. Other times, you're doing some piece of work and suddenly you get feedback that tells you that you have touched something that is very alive in the cosmos. My wife and I are affiliated with a temple here in Los Angeles. We feel very close to the congregation and to the rabbi, who happens to be my wife's cousin and who I admire greatly. I talk to him regularly but I consider myself more spiritual than religious. I did not move into developing or processing color. I stayed with black and white. I still think to this day that I prefer to work in black and white if it has to do with poetry or anything other than specific reality. I have worked in color when I thought it was the appropriate way to express the thought that I was working on. A neighborhood friend showed me how it was possible to go to a camera shop and pick up chemicals for pennies... literally... and develop your own film and make prints. You know, for a long time I have been of the opinion that artists don't necessarily know what they're doing. You don't necessarily know what kind of universal concept you're tapping into. I am not Spock. I'm attracted to images that come from a personal exploration of a subject matter. When they have a personal stamp to them, then I think it becomes identifiable. That's true, because I'm a photographer now. For a period of time, I carried cameras with me wherever I went, and then I realized that my interest in photography was turning toward the conceptual. So I wasn't carrying around cameras shooting stuff, I was developing concepts about what I wanted to shoot. And then I'd get the camera angle and do the job. My dream concept is that I have a camera and I am trying to photograph what is essentially invisible. And every once in a while I get a glimpse of her and I grab that picture. I became hooked on the idea of being able to shoot an image and process it myself, and end up with a product. What I'm exploring right now is the subject of my own mortality. It's an area that I'm curious about, and I'm researching it to see if there's a photographic essay in it for me. If images don't start to come, I'll go to something else. Some words having to do with the death of the people in the World Trade Center attack had been added, and when I got to it, I had this overwhelmingly emotional experience. I struggled to get through the words; tears were streaming down my cheeks. I'm touched by the idea that when we do things that are useful and helpful - collecting these shards of spirituality - that we may be helping to bring about a healing. You proceed from a false assumption: I have no ego to bruise. Boston was a great city to grow up in, and it probably still is. We were surrounded by two very important elements: academia and the arts. I was surrounded by theater, music, dance, museums. And I learned how to sail on the Charles River. So I had a great childhood in Boston. It was wonderful. This time, there have been a lot of interesting discussion about the subject matter and I've had a good time talking about it. And in some of the cases, I'm not just signing books; I'm showing slides and talking about the work. Years ago - in the 70s, for about a decade - I carried a camera every place I went. And I shot a lot of pictures that were still life and landscape, using available light. My memory of those places is better than my pictures. That's why I get much more satisfaction out of shooting thematic work that has to do with an idea that I'm searching for, or searching to express. I became involved in photography when I was about thirteen years old. I also do my own processing, so it means a big commitment in lab time. The book tour has been really interesting and very gratifying. I have not book toured before. I've never had quite as much pleasure, as much satisfaction. I became enamored with photography when I was about 13 or 14 years old. I've been at it ever since. I studied seriously in the '70s. Most of my images have been done in-studio, under very controlled lighting conditions. There have been a few that have been shot in nature, but even then they were shot almost exclusively at night, and again, under controlled lighting conditions. I began working with a family camera. It was called a Kodak Autographic, which was one of those things where you flopped it open and pulled out the bellows. And I've been at it ever since; I've never stopped. I'm not an equipment nut. I tend to use whatever's to hand. I have several cameras, of course, but I'm not emotional about any of them. I deal with this spiritual issue every day - either shooting or processing or sorting or discussing or having conversations - I'm in constant contact with it. For me it's all about personal vision; is there something about a subject that uniquely speaks to me. I use a computer. I don't know if that qualifies me as a techie, but I'm pretty good on the computer. I've been working with photography for many years. That's the most difficult issue for me... to find a subject that holds my interest long enough that I'm prepared to go to work and spend the time and energy to shoot the subject. I certainly don't live in a kosher home although I was raised in a kosher environment. I have a master's degree in photography as a fine art, and I would call my work primarily conceptual. I don't carry cameras with me wherever I go. I get an idea of a subject matter I want to deal with and I pull out my cameras.
