This week we’ve been having Special Effects lessons in class.
So far we’ve covered everything from slit wrists/slits, gashes, strangulation, 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree burns, bullet wounds and also chopped off digits!
It’s all very gory and let’s just say doing research for SFX is not something you want to do over lunch or dinner, however it is a lot simpler than you might think! Less is more definitely applies here and overdoing the SFX by adding too much product can make it look unrealistic. Tomorrow we are covering Zombies which should be incredibly fun and I imagine we’ll get some awesome pictures out of it. Below are some of the photos from class over the past couple of days. Have a look but beware, it may not be your cup of tea – especially if you’re a bit squeamish. Looks are modeled on Clodagh Power and Phoebe Wishart.
