Live nude casts made at Rosenberg's studio for the independent film "Looking for Romeo".

1984.

 

Prior to the time of digital filming the production company for "LOOKING FOR ROMEO" needed to have the actors be transformed into stone during a scene. They commission Rosenberg to cast the actors in action in order to have their images in plaster appear to crumble on the screen. The process was wonderfully successful with the exception of drops of blood dripping from the molds on the actors as they painfully waited for it to be cut off of them.
