JULY 2008

"The Making of Cornelius - A Tribute to John Chambers" video from Tom Rubalcava & Dan Morgan is in the works! The team is editing this inside look at re-creating the character using the same techniques that the legendary creator of the Apes makeup effects used 40 years ago! Meanwhile, click on the image to view the newest photo gallery.




Dan Morgan was on his game at WonderCon 2008 in San Francisco as the Archaeologist, Dr. Cornelius of the Planet of the Apes. The folks at the con were gracious as they took photo op after photo op with the friendly simian. These appliances were made from a sculpture that Tom Rubalcava made and the costume was made by Paula Crist for Bill Blake back in the 1970s.
