fantasy: Heartbeeps


Two robots, Aqua (Bernadette Peters) & Val, meet in a warehouse, fall in love and decide to start a family. A bad movie but one of my my favourite robots.

The two robot waitresses were played by Irene Cagen (as Irene Forrest) and Karsen Lee Gould.

The makeup

Stan Winston was responsible for the special makeup, supervising all the designs and sculpting Aqua. Zoltan Elek & Vince Prentice worked onset with Lance Anderson & Ken Diaz in the lab.

Aqua is an assemblage of seven prosthetic applianceswith a soft golden cast and bronze highlights, plus a plastic wig and acrylic dentures. Val’s prosthetics were even more complex.
