OK, THIS IS ME IN PARAGONS MOVIE MAKING DAYS      

NOW HERE I AM 15 YEARS LATER AS A KLINGON

AND FINALLY NOW 2012

A TALE ABOUT KLINGON

When I was making the Star Trek Paragon movie I decided to make myself up as a Klingon and see if it was realistic. I looked pretty much like the middle photo above. I drove over to my sisters house and knocked on her door and just stood there mute. She did not wait for me to speak but called her husband to the door with baseball bat in hand. Neither she nor he recognized me.  Klingons are mean looking dudes. My brother-in-law growled at me “What do you want” as he wiggled the bat.  I laughed and said “It’s me, John”. My voice and laugh gave me away. I am the Klingon holding the cube with Kirk inside of it in the movie.

I did all the make-ups for Paragon and will show some behind the scenes photos as I write more articles. Those days were busy times. I worked full time doing carpet stretching Macomb Michigan  cities and a lot of installing with my dad in the city of Northville,  Michigan. We sub-contracted to the son of a man that my Grandfather had contracted to.
