Hey guys, I am getting a horror film ready and I am wondering what how they spatter blood on the walls like if someone got their brains smashed in...?

Any ideas?

Hey [#]Jimmy[/#] have you ever heard of a potato gun?

So picture that, but they stuff it with blood and guts, oh and they normally use compressed air :p

Hope that helps!

There are several ways to do that. Here is a video from the school I attend showing one of the ways you can do it.

Ahh, ok that makes sense now thanks Nick!

Jsthompson I do not understand how that would shoot blood and guts on the wall though?

It is another blood launcher. You can modify the size of the tubes and and a larger compression fitting to build up more pressure and splatter the wall. However if you like the idea of the potato gun go for it. That is the beauty of practicals there are many ways to achieve the same effect.

If you only wanted a post production approach, you could do it with some roto and motion tracking.

Youtube has a gazillion vids on how to do this--in a million different ways. Look 'em over and see what fits your budget and production. Some are pretty low-tech--others can be pricey.

If you have any building skills it'll be easier--otherwise you may have to hire someone.
