Brusied & Wounded

DSCN1959 A wound caused by falling on gravel.

bruise A nasty hit on the side of the head.

Suffice to say, I’ve had a very interesting week leading up to this post. I mean, that’s my hand and my face there!

OMG! Is that what you’re thinking?! NO, no, no need to be alarmed. I wasn’t mugged or bashed, nor was I in an accident or took a fall on any gravel.

These are photos to show some SFX makeup works that can be done with very few things on hand. In fact, right now, I’m in last phase of pre-production for my short film, The Circle, and I’ve been making some of these videos on how-to.

If you are curious how I did these effects, check out the video on YouTube. (Please beware: the images may be too graphic for some).

And if you’d like to pledge your support to help me make this film as best I can without compromising on the look of it, please go to my Pozible site and donate as little as AUS$5.

The target amount I need to raise is $2500. At the moment, we are sitting on $1120 with 32 days to go. Fingers crossed I can raise this amount and bring you all a very entertaining and suspense film. 🙂

Thank you once again! Have a great week ahead, and I can’t wait to bring you some snippets of our shoot this coming weekend. Stay tuned and follow us on our facebook, or pledge to our campaign.

      1. Yes, I was suspicious about the lack of swelling, that’s the thing that’s hardest to fake. And unmistakeable on wounds that severe. Also the eye should have been bloodshot when the head was bruised right next to it. But everybody’s a critic, and I only came to the conclusion after I studied it a bit. In a film, with a quick shot, it probably would have convinced. 🙂

      2. You fake injuries with the best of them! My friend and I were making an ad against drunk driving over 20 years ago, and we used tomato puree and a dog bone to fake a compound fracture. We got our “victim” to bend her leg at an unnatural angle. It actually looked pretty believable in the photo, but we did make a giant mess. And the photo wasn’t a close up. It was a fun afternoon, in a ghoulish kind of way.

      3. We used too big clothes and padding to simulate swelling. We did it a little too well, though, she really did look dead, which was a bit upsetting, when I looked at the photos. Still, we had fun staging it.
