Mr. Numan and the Toys / Defacing Numan (critique requested)

Recently I completed an extensive photoseries featuring Mr. Numan (a robot servant) and his alleged master Mr. Filbert. This was in preparation for converting these photos into a short fake 1950s trailer for an upcoming Sci-Fi Spectacular film festival happening in Chicago later this April. The posted photo is one of many that will be featured in the trailer.

Until then, I will keep the rest of the photos under wraps until the festival is over, at which point I will post the entire series on tumblr along with a link to the finished film.

Until then until then, here is a short unmasking performance featuring Mr. Numan struggling with his identity. Enjoy!

    Is he undergoing the identity crisis of one seeing himself mass-produced, or is that the glimmer in the eye of someone planning something with those faces?

      He is certainly plotting something with those faces! Whispering anti-human thoughts into their ears...

    Nice noir lighting over all. It could use one more rim light to separate the dark 'hair' from the shadow on the left.

      True, he could have used a little more of a halo over the top of his head. A small backlight would certainly have made a difference.
