+chinfat Thank you. as we get closer to the project would it be Ok to contact you for some info in these areas. This is from one of my 10 published books. THE PREYERS. Thank you for the reply.
chinfat (1 month ago)
That would be quite a setup. You could probably use a combo of digital effects, like Action Essentials to do the wall hits and dust elements. Instead of doing a wide shot, you could shoot close and medium shots of each individual and use quick editing from the shooter to the people being shot. Then end on a wide shot with all the dead people on the ground. That way, you can set up each person individually rather than trying to get it all right on the first time with a wide shot.

How do i make knife slash/stab effects with fake blood? I know they used a wire and a condom filled with blood taped to the actor, but how can i do a shot of slicing someone's back (for example) and the fake blood gushes out? I know a method of taping the blood-filled condom to the back, cut to the shot when the knife has just sliced, and clone stamp out the tape/bits of condom in after effects. How will i achieve this with a rubber knife? Will it be sharp enough to slice to condom? And which type of tape should i use? Any other methods are appreciated, thanks!

Channel9Productions (1 year ago)
Pro-tip. Put water in the garden hose sprayer and you'll greatly reduce the pumping time. Just take out the inner tube so the water doesn't go into the blood.
chinfat (1 year ago)
That's a great idea. I will try that next time.
Charlie Dawson (1 year ago)
Isn't blowing holes in people the most realistic way to do it?
Charlie Dawson (1 year ago)
Hey, if they're not in the guild...

Yes. But then you don't get to make movies or blow any more holes in people anymore.

I’m a big airsofter and I just wanted to let you know you should fill your mag with the bottle nozzle facing down. Or the bottom of the mag facing up. Whichever wording makes more sense. Helps with efficiency of gas. Great squib by the way. I’ll be putting this to use.

How do you stop the blood going into the sprayer when you poor it all down the tubing?

This type of sprayer has a valve. It won't go into the sprayer.

Is it possible to do this whilst walking? I wanna shoot a scene with someone walking towards someone and getting shot
chinfat (1 year ago)
I suppose it would be possible, is you cut to the person being shot only a couple of seconds before they are shot. If you did a Medium Shot, you could have someone walking just outside the camera shot carrying the sprayer. Yeah, I think that would work. I'd say do a couple of screen tests with water instead of blood and see how it works.

I use a stainless steel vest 3mm thick with mortared areas and pyrotechnics, the plastic case kind, they shred shirts no problem, but yep, every actor that's had the thing on goes chalk white. It can't be beaten however for that Hollywood look. Also at £90 for twelve pyros, it isn't cheap, these videos on low cost are great to get round this, nice upload. Head shots are easy enough, you have a bullet hole on the actors head and mo track a cover from a clear area of skin, then a mortared pyro and blood bag behind them, to hit that wall. Another good one is a dummy target launcher, they take a 6mm blank, you then place a blood bag over the end and cover that with a sheet of tinfoil, and hide the device on the actors side in a custom belt, the pin is pulled bac kand a builders nail placed in to act like a brace, this has string tied to it, then when pulled out the pin shoots forward hitting the blank and boom, the blood sprays in a vapour mist through the precut shirt etc.We used to cut a cross with scissors into the clothing and paper glue, ( Pritt-stick) a section of kitchen tissue paper on the (back of the fabric not tissue) to seal the cut marks, it's very effective for a shotgun type death. if you don't have post effects like mocha or AE, the head shot one can be done via clever editing, the elevator scene in 1987's Untouchables was done in camera, the bad guy points the gun and fires a blank round, in post they cut on the frame right after the flash, and to the actor with a hole prosthetic in place already, the blood is then popped up onto the back wall of the lift, easier still is to have the blood already there, put the right sound on it and it'll do the job.The viewer's brain will fill in the blanks so to speak.

Haha love it! Keep it up man! Indie film for life!!
chinfat (2 years ago)
It is expensive. With all the money I saved on the squibs, I could afford to use all that gaffer's tape!!! JK. A less expensive way is seriously to use saran wrap around the body. Works like a charm. Actually, it works better. I should have done that sooner.
Thanks, man. I've been looking for something like this to help with my Indie film series, Yesterday's Gone Zombie series. Season 1 episode 1 comes to YouTube in 2017. We'll be using it for season 2 for sure.

Could you use a larger tube for a larger result? or is the outcome not going to change so much if you use a larger tube?
chinfat (2 years ago)
Hmmm... good idea. Not sure on that one. I would recommend testing it out with a larger tube and see what happens. You might also need a larger garden hose sprayer, however.

chinfat (2 years ago)
Have you checked to see if the parts can be ordered online? Or is that a difficult task as well?
BecauseMovie (2 years ago)
I want to make sure that there's also a large bloodstain on the shirt like for a shotgun for instance... is that possible to do without exploding packets of fake blood since it's so dangerous ? You didn't have that much blood on your shirt.
BecauseMovie (2 years ago)
Looks great! But will the tube actually leave a lot of blood on the person and will leave a large stain on the shirt ?
chinfat (2 years ago)
You can fill the tube with a lot more blood and make the hole a bit bigger. I've done a shotgun blast with it that works quite well. Check out this video at 9:25. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ileW_bgxS4M&index=12&list=PLOVqmUlWq2N8LSe11YIeW5wqIgDJJspm1
Tyler Minoske (2 years ago)
I want to start making short films and I need guns for my scenes and I was wondering what is the difference between a blank gun and a blank gun with an orange tip. I am looking for a gun that looks like the real deal when you shoot it but nothing comes out.
Tyler Minoske (2 years ago)
+chinfat ok thanks for the help and advice I'll be sure to check up on everything!
chinfat (2 years ago)
Some of the best and safest ones are airsoft guns. They have replicas that look incredibly real of almost any gun type. You'll have to check on the laws in your area, but for movies, most people simply paint or remove the orange tips. Just make sure to get permission to shoot your film at the locations you use. We've had people call the police and say there was some psycho running rampant with a gun, when it was just an actor.

OSD (2 years ago)
Who would actually use firecrackers or cherry bombs for a squib? sounds like such a bad idea.
chinfat (2 years ago)
It is a bad idea, if you're attempting without experience. Professional productions often use explosive squibs, with metal plates on the person being shot.

Where were you hiding lol, have been looking to this kind of tutorial, you are a professional ,
Christos Ioannou (3 years ago)
A few questions, 1. Did you add in the gunshot sound and remove the tube hiss post-production? 2. Did you film a shot of you without the damaged shirt, then cut to the shot of the cut shirt, or how did you go from the regular short to the one with the tube? 3. How would you do multiple shots at the same time? 4. What would be the best way to make an effect like this, but using a prop knife (or any other close-range weapon)?
Christos Ioannou (3 years ago)
+chinfat thanks!
chinfat (3 years ago)
+Christos Ioannou 1. Yes. A sound mix removed the hiss sound and replaced it with a gun shot and body hit. 2. Watch part 2 of the tutorial and it shows how to remove the pre-ripped shirt. 3. That would really require professional squibs and machinery. 4. Not sure on that one.

P.I.N. Productions (2 years ago)
chinfat how can I do it multiple times
chinfat (3 years ago)
+MoreyFilms Haven't tried it with multiple at the same time. I assume it would work. I'm sure the flour/powder method would work just fine. I'd recommend running a test before giving it a go on film.
David Secrest (3 years ago)
personally I would use another pipe clamp on the plug just so it doesn't accidentally turn into a projectile, I would probably hot glue it also.

rougeaussie (4 years ago)
How would you suggest building a squib for slicing the inside of an open hand, I would prefer the blood to ooze out slowly - rather than really fast. I'm guessing the answer is hiding a thinner tube with lots and lots of make up?
rougeaussie (4 years ago)
Interesting, thanks mate, I'll keep looking into it.
chinfat (4 years ago)
Geesh… not sure on that one. That would likely take a make-up artist. I've seen people do a fishing line going under the make-up and then when the string is pulled, it rips open the makeup and looks like flesh being torn open. 
Safety Lucas (4 years ago)
Personally I would just connect the tube to the end of another airsoft gun. That way the system is much smaller and doesn't require lots of pumping.
Samuel Schild (4 years ago)
Thank you so much for uploading this. This is one of the most accessible and easy to understand film tutorials I've watched. I already built my squib rig and plan on shooting this week.
