LOADR rigging

Computer is working better than ever after getting the full 24gb RAM configured, and playing with a little rigging in maya digital version of my photo scanned stop motion puppet

The #LOADR has working joints now, but still working on the skinning to fix a few spots. The full clip is here https://youtu.be/2El86ZvSds4

Air mortar pt5; SHARK BLOOD EXPLOSION

Shark blood explosion

I was contacted by a friend who works at Revision3 and they had a producer putting together a small viral video for the Discovery channel’s #sharkweek. Since they needed a blood effect I gathered my stuff, and did a bit of brainstorming.

More testing of the air pressure and different payloads, also looking at ways to pre-cut the bottle to direct air-flow and influence the resulting explosion.

I tried a few methods and went between confetti and fake blood
Prepping blood packs for a side project, Shark Blood Explosion!

Arm and blood mixed…

Put together a fake arm on short notice, shark blood explosion!

Air mortar pt4 GORE BLAST

Continued from the experiments here; http://bradisdrab.wordpress.com/2012/09/01/air-mortar-pt3/

Not quite ready for “real” pyro, but feeling pretty good about the compressed air rig and battery operated valve, I decided to apply it towards an effect I wanted for Drab Future.

Here is what I was looking at as reference. Specifically I wanted to use it for a blood squib effect and having someone lose an arm. I knew it could explode so it was a matter of seeing how much of a blast it produces, if it is safe for an actor to wear and exactly how it looks/works. I’d never strap it to someone else before testing it on myself first, so here goes;

I’m gonna need a lot of blood…
