Jason Baker: WWE Gave Bray Wyatt & I A Lot Of Creative Freedom, But Everything Was Approved
Wyatt is working with Baker on a movie now
Callosum Studios owner and makeup effects artist Jason Baker has revealed that he and Bray Wyatt were given a lot of creative freedom by WWE but everything they created had to be approved by the promotion.
Baker has worked closely with a number of WWE talent throughout the years on various forms of make-ups effects, and helped Windham Rotunda develop the aesthetics for his 'Fiend' character.
Baker noted that WWE were happy for him and Wyatt to creatively go wild, but would ultimately be the ones who got the final say on designs and concepts.
Speaking on the Gimme A Hull Yeah podcast, Baker said: "WWE did give Bray and I a lot of creative freedom but also, a lot of times, everything had to be approved. There were little tweaks and changes and things like that.
"At the end of the day, whoever is footing the bill is the one who gets (final say). If we're working for WWE and creating a mask for them, it's safety first. The big thing we have to do it make sure that it's comfortable, durable, and they can see out of it. If they can't see, they can miss a move and it can end badly where they hurt themselves, someone else, or worse.
"They are professionals at what they do and they do high-risk maneuvers. I would hate to be that person where 'I couldn't see what I was doing and now I'm paralyzed because you didn't do your job right.'"
Baker recently confirmed that he and Wyatt will begin work on a movie at the end of the month.
