    It be great if one of the folks actually used a tail instead of CGI. I think there's better out there than him but he's the one with the connections so that's what ya get. Well have to see

    Agreed. I hate that companies turn to cgi when there's so many options for realstic tails. I just wish they would cast the net a bit wider when it comes to the creators of those tails.

    I really hope it's not the case...or the special effects department is using them as a base to build on.

    I was wondering if I would see a post about this on here! :P I agree with the above comments but it is nice to hear about the potential for a real tail versus cg. I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens.

    Better him than CGI. If he wants to he can make really nice tails. I hope he does a great job and that there'll be little to no CGI in whatever film he's talking about.

    ATTENTION: Please use extreme caution when feeding the mermaid. Failure to do so could result in loss of digits.

    Well the way he worded it, it makes it sound like (to me) that it's actually his own project, rather than he got hired. Not sure if this is just bad wording on his part, too much reading into it on my part, or something like that, so it will be interesting to see how this project turns out. Like Dotti said; he is capable of making good tail when he chooses to, so I'm sure he's going to put all his effort into something with so much publicity.

    I must concur with the majority here; in the whole Mertailor versus Merbella conflict, I am personally invested (literally) in the latter....

    However, the fact is that the Mertailor's work can be very high-quality when he so desires, and I could easily picture it in a major motion picture done by a major studio. The big question then is whether a major studio would use the Mertailor's work as-is. Mermaid tails in film have 'developed' from obviously-artificial to realistic and properly-swimmable to the more awkward; tails like those in Hook which had an extension between the feet and the fluke to appear less human, and then finally the current situation of wildly-flailing cgi a la Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and to a lesser extent Once Upon A Time.

    However, Madison's tail from Splash! is still the one that looks most real (despite its visible seam), so perhaps the studio will respect that.
    Because you can be a mermaid and have an immortal soul!

    I think it's probably this:



    Because of the quote next to the photo:
    "Mertailor Sculptors working hard at it! Major contract! Completely custom tail(s)! It's going to be huge! I'm sure the movie is going to be one of a kind

    so the forum was all weird and I tried to continue that post, haha but it started posting my text vertically? weird. so anyway, his boyfriend uploaded that same photo on his FB fanpage with his own credit for the sculpting? lol.

    Anyway, we do all know he can do a good job when it's for high paying clients. There's no denying Eric has some talent. and we know since it's a movie he wont be able to copy anything existing. He'll have to innovate.
