Self portrait body casting for the 2004 film Troy. We were casting models to use as battlefield corpses. The last model to turn up was super fit but only about 5’5″ and way too short to be a warrior. We needed to do it that day and since I was the only one amongst us without a beer gut I got the job. It was an interesting experience having a bunch of mates cast me naked but all good experience for the future. Knowing how it feels to be cast has been extremely useful in understanding my model’s experience and designing my processes to minimise discomfort.
