Topic: Movie effects makeup/FX

Hello everyone as much as i like this website, and specifically the indie film making section, it seems that the one thing lacking is a thread devoted solely to horror fx and makeup. So feel free to post all your horror photos, effects and such here. I'd love to see what everyone else is doing.

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

Good thread ghattprod. smile

I make short horror films with my brother and sister. The only thing I have for fx is ketchup (for blood). LOL.

But on the horror fx subject, I think An American Werewolf In London and John Carpenter's The Thing are the best.

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

I got a few vids on Youtube of my gore effects and squibs and what not, I'll post them later on tho smile

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

Thanks everyone. I need to figure out how to post my pics of special effects from my horror film. Anyone wanna help me out? I'm not sure how to get my pics from computer to this forum.

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

we actually don't, it's just all smoke and mirrors

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

anyone get into the latex constructions of faces and creatures??

anyone used actual animal guts before?

a good tool for squirting your fake blood - one of those 'weed killer' spray can things

fill it up - pump it like your meat - squirt your hot blood juice - use hose/pipes under clothing, coming up to the neck/jugular area - use some good camera placement and directing - squirt the goods and swallow

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

For Bone Cave we used a latex appliance for an eye gouge effect and also for some scars. We used a turkey baster for some blood effect and flicked it sideways which gave the splatter an interesting effect. I think i'm going to use the weed killer sprayer next time.

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

i wanna do some latex course - to copy actors faces - for those really nice head shots - or decapitations - or any sort of head trauma

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

Heres a burn effect from my last film. Effects and photos were done by Michael Smith.

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

nice - the best kill in Diary of the Dead - irekons, was the acid jar to the face kill - head slowly eating away - now that was cool CGI

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

Yeah that was a cool effect in Diary. We are doing a similar effect but with meshing the two burns together via a morphing technique rather than cgi.

Check out these latex tutorials.

Wanna make a latex copy of your own face to blow the fuck out of - so you can imagine what it would look like to have your mate blast your face off with a sawn off?

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

I'm gonna be needing some pretty basic work on my short that I'm working on soon. Got any good suggestions for people (not expensive). I'm based in LA.

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

i suggest finding a person who has a strong passion for effects make up

best bet would be a STUDENT in the area - who would be interested in doing it for some bongs, food, practice and good times.

or try searching for effects groups around your area - talk to them - see if they are bored and wanna do some cheap jobs?

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

Thanks Zombie smile

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

keep us posted with any news on the effects department - id be very interested

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

Will do. Yeah we're gonna be entering production in late September, so I'm just doing the ground work now. The lead actor we have was in Blade the TV series, so I wanna see if there's any strings he can pull too.

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

This is a great idea for a topic - bring back the science of practical effects!

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

Here’s some pictures of some of the crazy ass effects I’ve done over the years! Some of these are behind the scenes, they encompass a bunch of my flicks, The New Girls, Highway 91, The Last Battleground, Bleed, Cold Blooded, The Aborted and Bloodgod!

Some of this stuff was made with nothing but duck tape,  aluminum foil and the good old standby saran wrap!

Re: Movie effects makeup/FX

Hey guys! I'm new on this forum - I'm a young filmmaker, currently in the final pre-production stages of my first feature! This thread is a great idea just to say - and it seems like the question I want to ask is best asked to you lot here!

There's a scene in my film, where two men are being tortured by the villains, and one of the men is tied up and his hand is placed on the ground - and the villain uses a hammer to slowly go from the pinky finger to the thumb, smashing each of the fingers in with his hammer. Probably like many of you, I'm no fan of gore or violence in films that shies away - if somebody is getting their fingers hammered in, I want to SEE their fingers getting hammered in! I want the scene to be as horrifying as possible, and plan to shoot the hammer hitting the fingers in full detail. Trouble is - I've no idea how to do it. That's where you guys come in!

I tried the scene out in a test video, using a fake hand. The hand had nothing inside like, so when you hit it - the finger actually went in, and it did look okay, but I want to try some alternatives. I'd like for there to be some blood released perhaps, or something along those lines.

Anyway - hopefully you guys can help me! Sonny, particularly, I loved your photos up there and think your makeup work looks brilliant!

Thanks a lot everyone, hope to speak to you soon!

Andy
