In Jeremy Carr’s surreal thriller Ice Cream Ants, my evil seductress character (Mona) is seducing Lover (Marcus Ashley) and my face suddenly turns into a strange mask—of myself. You’ve ALL been asking about the Jill Tracy MASK!
Molded from my own face (talk about panic-inducing-hard-to-breathe endeavors) by SFX master Jonathan Horton, the mask scene became my favorite memory of the film shoot.
Watch this special behind the scenes video memoir of creating the Mona character, and just how we shot this wonderful creepy scene in Ice Cream Ants—plus my best maniacal laugh…
Transformation complete! The mask was carefully placed on my face during the scene to appear like I had turned into some sort of eerie erotic mannequin, I couldn’t see a thing.
Behind the Scenes: Jill Tracy on set with the legendary Tom Noonan (Heat, Last Action Hero, House of the Devil.)
Ice Cream Ants went on to win several film festival awards, including the Dewar’s Grand Prize. (Yes, lots of complimentary scotch was delivered.)
The film features my song “Pulling Your Insides Out.” We shot the new music video for the tune— to include with Jeremy Carr’s new director’s cut which is now available for you online! Read about the making of the elegant nightmarish “Pulling Your Insides Out” in the midst of a New York lightning storm in an earlier BLOG!
