Gruesome hit effect from Minsk

I just received some film clips from my FX colleague in Minsk – Dmitry Yasinsky. He wanted to know more about the Air Squib unit, so I sponsored him with a kit. He took the case, brought some actor friends and got these primary clips. They all look great, but my personal favourite is the front wax pellet hit synced with the air squib in the neck. It is certainly extremely impressive and looks really gruesome! Wow – great work, Dmitry, and thanks to you all involved for sharing
