Topic: Question

Some friends and I are working on an independent film and we kind of need help with something.  How do you get a small splurt of blood for the effect of someone being shot.  It's not a horror movie so we're not looking for lots of blood, but we don't know how to do it.  Anyone have any ideas?  Thanks a bunch.

Re: Question

If he's getting shot in the front of the head, have a small, but long piece of tubing going from up his back to the back of the head...then just use a pump to pump the blood up through the tube and out his head , signifying an open wound..it's easy.

Re: Question

Thanks for the advice.  I don't know how many head shots we will have in the movie but that sounds like a good idea.  I imagine you could do something similar with body shots or something, right?  Cause I think the bulk of these shots will probably be more or less in the chest.  But thanks for all the help.

Re: Question

Cool site. I think I'm going to make some blood. It could come in real handy tongue

Re: Question

Yea thanks for that link.. The site it came from has a ton of cool stuff.. I have seen a lot of cool DVD's that extra features that would help any indie film guy out.. Specifically stuff from Rodriguez is always really good and insightful..

Re: Question

Thanks for the site Kruz.  I will definitely send it to my friend who is directing the movie.  Sorry I took so long reply but I hadn't realized this got moved.  Didn't know if I should put it into this forum considering the movie is in the horror genre.  Thanks again.

Re: Question

If you own "Slither", check the special features.  It teaches you how to make blood.  smile

Re: Question

Unfortuneatly Tim, I don't own Slither, but we got a good recipe for blood.  Found a recipe that works real well online.  If I ever get a hold of the movie though, I will have to watch that feature.  Thanks for the advice though, anything and everything is helpful.  It's not going to be a bloody movie, but the little blood that we do show, we want to look good.

Re: Question

No problem.  Good luck with the film.

I found out about that site because I wanted to make a post-apocalyptic short. But it never got off the ground. sad
