Guns, Guts, and Gin: Creating Props for Gangster Movies

first_img5. BloodTechnique By: Neural CultureYou can go out and purchase a gallon of fake blood for about $20 — or, as seen in the following video, you can create your own blood at home for less than $5. All you need is some corn syrup and food coloring. This fake blood isn’t just convincing, it’s also edible! The actors in your zombie movie can eat as much fake blood as their undead hearts desire. 6. GutsTechnique By: SplatterFactoryTVLet’s get gross. You need some loose guts in your video? One option would be going to the butcher and picking up some pig livers. A less stinky alternative would be this technique created by SplatterFactoryTV. All you need is some styrofoam and a batch of your delicious fake blood! 3. How to Fake AlcoholWant to create some fake booze? Just use these non-alcoholic alternatives.Apple Juice = WhiskyApple juice is a perfect stand-in for whiskey. Just give it a minute and let the bubbles die down.Water = Vodka and GinFaking clear liquors is no problem, thanks to good ol’ H2O.O’Douls = BeerNeed to have your actor drink a fake beer? Well, give them a fake beer! An O’Doul’s is a great non-alcoholic alternative. 4. Fake KnivesTechnique By: Film RiotWhen it’s time to get stabby, use tin foil to craft a convincing blade. When you stab your subject, the blade will simply bend — but your audience won’t know that. This epic tutorial from Film Riot demonstrates the technique. Authenticity is key when your film is set in the seedy underbelly of the criminal world. Here are a few ways to create realistic props for gangster movies.Images via ShutterstockCrime movies like The Godfather, The Departed, and Scarface are heavy on edgy vibe. Tough guys like to smoke and drink — and occasionally murder and maim. Obviously, live firearms and high-powered whiskey can lead to real trouble on a film set, so how can you maintain an air of criminal authenticity? Here are a few prop and art direction ideas to help keep your actors and crew safe and sober. Well, at least until the wrap party.1. CigarettesTechnique By: Doorway FilmsSometimes it won’t be that big of a deal for your actor to smoke a real cigarette on set, but oaccasionally — whether it’s because your actor isn’t old enough or simply doesn’t want to smoke a real one — you’ll need to create a fake cigarette. In this tutorial, we’ll take a look at how to create fake cigarettes using parsley. Yeah, you read that right. If you want to give your fake cigarette realistic smoke, simply fill an empty cigarette with dried parsley and compact it. 9. SquibsTechnique By: chinfatWhile After Effects can generate some cool-looking blood explosions and splatters, they aren’t always the most believable. In this tutorial from chinfat, we see how to create a Hollywood-style squib using a fertilizer compressor (surely you’ve got one or two sitting around, right?) and a sponge.Got any footage of some fake props you’ve made? We’d love to see the video in the comments below! 7. WoundsTechnique By: BBC BlastThere are people who have built entire careers on creating fake blood and wound effects, but you don’t have to be a pro to pull off some gruesome punctures, pierces, and missing pieces. All you need is some molding wax (about $8 online) and another batch of fake blood. The tutorial below focuses on a slice, but you can create any wound your twisted brain can imagine. 2. MoneyTechnique By: The Prop Master’s Handbook(Disclaimer: This technique should only be used to create prop money for a film or video. Creating counterfeit money is highly illegal!)If you need to create fake money for a film set, the process is actually fairly straightforward. Simply print out a two-sided picture of fake money and crumple it up. Some prop masters take it one step further and apply lemon juice to the surface in order to give the money a brownish tint. But for most shooting situations, crumpled paper will look convincing enough. Just be careful — trying to spend counterfeit money is a felony. Make sure your prop isn’t an exact replica or you might end up in jail. 8. GunsTechnique By: Tom AntosCreating a fake gun is super simple — just go to the dollar store and buy a toy gun and some spray paint. You should be able to create a convincing gun with this technique. However, if you want to take it one step further, use metallic spray paint and a rag to lightly brush the gun to create believable wear and tear. Here’s how it’s done.last_img read more

BJP scores ‘cent percent’ in Jamner municipal poll

first_imgIn a resounding victory, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday snared all 24 seats in the Jamner municipal poll in Jalgaon district, with Sadhana Mahajan, the wife of senior BJP leader and Maharashtra Minister Girish Mahajan, being elected to the presidential post.The result is expected to strengthen Mr. Mahajan’s bastion in Jalgaon district. The win was especially crucial for the Water Resources Minister as Jamner happens to be his Assembly constituency.Ms. Mahajan, who was the BJP’s nominee in this ‘battle for prestige’, easily trounced the Nationalist Congress Party’s (NCP) candidate Anjali Pawar by more than 8,000 votes to be elected as president of the Jamner Municipal Council.She polled 17,893 votes, coasting to victory by defeating Ms. Pawar, who garnered 9,540 votes. Large numbers of jubilant BJP workers staged a victory rally across Jalgaon district soon after the results.“The people of Jamner have delivered an emphatic verdict by voting for the BJP’s development works. They have rendered the politics of caste practiced by the NCP and the Congress completely ineffectual,” said an ecstatic Mr. Mahajan, who joined the victory procession following the results.In the 2013 election to the Jamner Council, the Congress-NCP alliance was in the ascendant, winning 14 seats with the coalition’s candidate Paras Lalwani serving as president for the first two-and-a-half years.A strange turn in political fortunes led to Ms. Sadhana Mahajan serving as president of the Jamner council in 2015.According to election observers, Ms. Mahajan’s victory this time was a fait accompli as Mr. Mahajan had thrown his full weight in the poll arena, even going so far as to canvass in Jalgaon on his wife’s behalf a fortnight before the polling on April 6. The win also enables Mr. Mahajan, viewed as a close aide to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, to score political brownie points over his party rival, former Minister Eknath Khadse, who is another Jalgaon strongman from the Muktainagar constituency.last_img read more
