Tom Culnan – mechanical effects
Stateofmain recently posted some photos of her father Tom Culnan, who worked on both Ghostbusters films and the Universal Studios Spooktacular, tinkering on a Slimer mechanism. There’s also a picture of her as a young girl with a skinned, but unpainted Onion Head. She’s not sure if it’s a prototype or not, though she does say it’s a possibility. Sadly her use of the past tense suggests Mr. Culnan is no longer with us – but given her pictures of attending the recent midnight showing of Ghostbusters in her area, she’s very proud of the role he played in the biggest comedy goin’. I’m sure we all appreciate her sharing those memories with us.
