Amanda Jensen with Monster Maker SFX - DIM 127

If you enjoy movies, television shows, and live attractions that feature special effects, then there no way that a make-up artist isn't involved in the magic that's being woven for you right before your very eyes.

We had the privilege to sit down with Amanda Jensen, an incredibly talented make-up and special effects artist who was responsible for the zombie make-up and effects for the "Lenny Vernon: Badass Trucker" live action trailer!! 

But that's not nearly what this amazing artist is capable of! With a portfolio that's hurting at the seams, you HAVE to check the breadth of her work HERE!!

Also an avid "Haunter", Amanda works with "The Shadow's Edge" Haunted attraction and brings the fear and in some cases, the funny as well! Please enjoy as we take a peek behind the curtain of special effects make-up on THIS episode of Daydream Instruction Manual!

Cartoons of the 1970’s - DIM 123

Through the magic of syndication and reruns, most of us have had the pleasure of being exposed to entertainment that predated our births. Whether it's an episode of "Yogi Bear" or "Jabberjaw", it's fun to experience what the generations before us watched and enjoyed.


If you're lucky enough to be able to do this, it's fun is to talk about some of those cartoons with someone who enjoyed them when they were NEW, and it's even MORE fun if that person is a fellow podcaster and friend!


In this special "Daydream: After Dark", we're joined by "Kip" a.k.a. John Golden, from the hit podcast "Geekvice" to discuss some of the insane and bonkers cartoons of the 1970's!

The Dark Crystal - DIM 122

During the late 1970's and early 1980's, there was an absolute flood of "High Fantasy" Movies that wowed our imaginations with their fantastic worlds of wonderment and blew our young minds with engaging and thrilling stories! And one of the high points of this cinematic deluge, was "The Dark Crystal"!!


Envisioned, created and written by Jim Henson on a literal dark and stormy night in the late 1970's, "The Dark Crystal" was a hit fantasy film where 100% of the sets, effects, and "actors" were either puppets or practical effects! Telling the Story of the mythical world of Thra, where the creatures of this world are in a state of slowly dying as the power of The Dark Crystal slowly fades. The corrupt and evil Skeksis have corrupted and abused the crystal to the point where it can no longer sustain the planet. An ancient prophecy and an unlikely hero in the form of a nearly extinct race called the Gelfings are the inhabitants of Thra's only hope.


Please enjoy as catch up with one of the original founding members of DIM, the one and only Mike Golka, discuss this amazing film in the light of its upcoming prequel series "The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance" being released on Netflix, And we enjoy another round of DIM games!!
