Makeup artists rig bullet hits

More and more make-up artists are getting themselves an air squib unit to offer simulated bullet hit effects in action productions. The units are really easy to attach to the inside of the garment and with an amount of stage blood in the tubing, all that is left to do is push the button to get that instant “hit”. If you look closely, you can see the nozzle stuck to the actress’s jacket, with the stage blood at the lower end.  If you offer makeup to actors on stage, film and TV productions, maybe you should consider a unit?

Never miss out on a thing!
