Horror Effects

by Redd Blog on March 31, 2011


This week we delve into the murky world of horror special effects with Paul Katte from the Make-up and Effects Group (MEG). The company are well known for their work on the Matrix Trilogy, Man Thing and Cut and specialise in design, animatronics, prosthetics and model making. If you’re a horror fan you might want to check out their feature film project Mary Doe on Facebook – if you ‘like’ what you see let them know.

While we’ve delved into fake blood in the past, in this video you’ll delve into the subject in some depth. Did you know you can get mint flavoured blood, that some blood is designed to look good on the ground and that there are a multitude of other variations of the red liquid. While the set of Redd Inc is now sticky with the stuff – our feet literally stick to the carpets – it’s gratifying to know that it’s a job well done. We’re now into the last days of shooting, everyone is growing weary but we promise to squeeze out a few more drops to bring you final glimpses from the set. Weren’t those actors going to talk to HR Reps and Bulletgirz Bosses? Stay tuned.
