    — It’s a unicorn.
    — Never seen one up close before.

Practical Special Effects: Pyrotechnics and Blood


Last time we tried to make a blood burst effect with a fishing line and a washer. This time we decided to try other ways like using pyrotechnics. Ingredients are still very cheap: a piece of wood (for protection), a petard, a needle (to make a hole in the petard), a nichrome filament (to use as a detonator), a wire and some batteries.

Guerilla (2008)

Even if Guerilla is not the best movie ever (I haven’t seen it yet), it should at least be way better than The Motorcycle Diaries.

Practical Special Effects: Blood Burst and Chroma Key

Ingredients: a condom, a little bit of fake blood (there’s too much of it in our video), a fishing line and a washer.



For the second video I used a photograph of this guy’s body to cover the condom.

“Morning” short avaliable

September, 26 — “Morning” premiere went very well. Photos are avaliable here. Most of the 30 people liked the movie and they liked all the old stuff either.

Now everybody can see the film: download it (better quality) or watch it on our site (easier). And we won’t mind if you tell us how much you liked or disliked the film here.

Bedhead (1991) — a short film by Robert Rodriguez


For those who are either too young to have seen or too old to remember :-) An 8-minute short film Bedhead (1991) was shot with an 8-mm camcorder and won a lot of small film festivals.

To Each His Cinema

To Each His Cinema (Chacun son cinéma) is a collective film of 33 shorts directed by different directors about their feeling about cinema. I liked films made by Lars von Trier, Takeshi Kitano and Zhang Yimou.

One Fine Day (Takeshi Kitano)



Movie Night (Zhang Yimou)

The easiest way to draw a muzzle flash


It took me 20 minutes to make it using Adobe Photoshop + After Effects. It’ll look better with smoke and shell flying from the pistol. And, yeah, the last two flashes are too far from the barrel :-)

Blue-Tongue Films Studio

Here is a British independent studio Blue-Tongue Films. Those who visit Future Shorts or just like to watch movies on YouTube could have seen their short film “Spider”.


Except “Spider” these guys make feature films (you can watch trailers on their site) and music videos. They also shoot some shorts. I liked “Lucky”. It could be useful for young filmmakers to watch it in the perspective of how it was made.

I’ve always loved Bruce Campbell. Since the first time I saw The Evil Dead and then Army of Darkness and that TV series about Xena. And I’m glad that Bruce is going to release his new movie soon where he plays a lead role. It’s titled My Name Is Bruce. And here is its trailer.

The first short video illustrating the shooting process of Birthday. We just hope that it’s not more interesting than the movie itself :-)
