This film told the story of H. H. Holmes and his murdering spree during the 1800's. I worked on painting the molding, floors, and doors, all to mimic wood texture. I also helped to stencil the upper walls of the hallway, applied wallpaper to the bedroom, and aged walls. I used a dry-brush technique on the doors and a thinned-out paint for the floor and trim with an undercoat. Built on stage at the American Film Institute and Conservatory.
