Hey I'm new here and this is my first post. Very excited!

I have a question. I'm shooting this scene that requires several people to projectile vomit. From your experience and knowledge what device do think would give an awesome effect of projectile vomit. The shot is more than likely going to be a profile of actors faces. It can look corny. Im aiming for the the stand by me scene when lardass makes everybody vomit. I would love for it to look similar to that. Any ideas would be a great help!

Hey [#]Jperridv[/#] thanks for joining!

You would most likely need to build something of this nature:

No I don't have Particular. I want it to be real though. It has to be launched from some kind of hose on to somebody's face. A real obnoxious mess. Nick I think your on to something.

Condensed soup is good for the vomit. It has that chunky appeal.

Did anyone mention the tube taped to the offside of the face for the hurler?

Jperridv did you ever create this shot? I would love to see how you did it

If you have enough money in your budget, I'd say try buying a relatively cheap vacuum cleaner and switch it on blow instead of suck and just fill it with fake vomit. Otherwise, your best bet is some form of an air pump, etc.

Dude, this is exactly what I was looking to build. I tried to make something once with a waterhose but all of the chuncks kept getting clogged in the end

What I recommend you do is run a tube up the side of the face of the actors and cover it up with makeup. You can get a shot of the actor getting ready to vomit, then cut right to the shot with the tube and the actor vomiting, from the same angle. It will rely on good editing, both for sound and visuals.

You could also just do a shot of an actor just about getting ready to puke, then a cutaway reaction to someone getting puked on.

Good luck!
