Picture of Hollywood Gunshot Blood Effect!
Here's how to create a home-made hollywood style gunshot effect! Great for amateur filmmakers or for Halloween! Alicia helps me, Kipkay, demonstrate it along with a full video instructable...



Step 1: What you will need for this effect...

Picture of What you will need for this effect...
Pick up a small garden sprayer at your local home improvement store. You will also need about a 3-5 foot length of clear tubing, a small clamp, a cork that will fit in the end of the tubing and a small piece of sponge.

I looped the hose up on the edge of the board to simulate it being over the actors shoulder (I didn't have a model so I stapled the tshirt over the hose. I assume that making a loop below the opening is the best way to keep the blood charge close to the exit wound? It fires great for a single shot effect.

Thanks for posting this, I have a few questions. Roughly how large in diameter do I make the jagged hole? Mine is around an 1/8" and I am having trouble getting sponge into it, I worry it wont blow it out if I stuff it too tight. When you pour the blood in, do you try to keep the blood near the squib hole? Does it matter if it drains down the line toward the garden sprayer? It seems like the closer it stays to the hole the better timed the squib will be. I thought about making a little loop on the hose to keep the blood from draining too far away from the exit hole... Does that matter? Thanks, your videos are so professional.

Great video, but to make it look more realistic, the actress needs to react the proper way to where the bullet is entering.

We do this in stunt training. ;)

still, a great little tutorial.

you should make one that looks like you are vomiting!
Yeah I have seen this before and for single gun shots it is great. Has anyone seen a design for multiple gun shots that used compressed air?
Just got back from an air component specialty shop. Bought an 8-way manifold with 2 inputs, not sure who makes it. Then got four MJV-3s (3way poppet valve), and four pc-2s (buttons) made by Clippard. Then just sealed the rest of the outputs and the input with butts(?), hooked up my 300PSI (max PSI for the valves) air cannister to the input, hooked hoses up to the MJV-3s and pop, pop, pop, pop. Bloody beautiful. 
I will try and post more detailed instructions soon.
XDXDXDXDXDthat awsome effects!!!
dude... your awesome.
... I think you meant "you're".


I'm a little bit ashamed of myself now, sorry.

is it possible to use spraypaint with a modded spraying tip?
im planning on scaring the holy crap out of ppl on haloween. how can i make this in a small enough package to be concealed while still having the same effect here?
put it in a trick or treat basket!
Take it in a backpack. Pose as a innocent that gets shot in the street.

you pump it 200 times and get "shot" how dose the blood come out?
press the spray button on the canister.
I have a cheap garden sprayer that cost $2 and only needs 50 pumps, 150 pumps would blow the sprayer apart. BTW,I love the voiceover (very professional).

raspbery drink mix powder and a little bit of water makes for a good blood effect and it tastes good too. But watch out because it stains your skin badly.
Dude, I love your vids! They're so professionally done it's ridiculous! Awesome job!

This is doing the rounds on the internet and is on loads and loads of websites. Is this really your original work? If not, a reference would be nice to where you got the original

I am Kipkay the original creator of the video. I already had a user account under this other name and did not even think about signing up with a different username. I'm going to see about having my username changed if it can be done.
No probs, sorry, I have seen people plagiarise before on other sites. I am glad you are the originator:-)
