Two simple solutions: 1.) Plastic bag of blood with a fine wire/string stuck to it. Thread the wire through the wound hole in the shirt/leg/buttocks of the clothes, and yank. 2.) Lightly compressed air with a blood hose. Indy Mogul's first Backyard FX episode has a great video on building this kind of rig: ...

You need a camera with a relatively large sensor and a fast lens. What you are seeing is actually a property of optics called Depth of Field. Only a certain distance from the camera can be in focus at any given point for a given aperture and focal length. The degree of how out of focus it appears is also relative to the size of the image being projected ...

This is possible, though it wouldn't look real at all.. If you use Adobe After Effects you can just put both sources in one composition. Then you would turn on the 3D-mode on each of the layers. There is a button on each layer. If you click it there should be a small picture of a cube where you clicked. Then you press P on each of the layers to bring up the ...

Tough question, and I imagine that those effects may be combinations of many other effects (probably in a 3D package given the context of the video itself). Barnaby Roper has a pretty interesting skill set, and we could try forever guessing what he did without getting it exactly right. That said, you should be able to accomplish a similar effect with ...

There's a good discussion of it – "it" being "datamoshing" here. Not just how it's done, but also why you probably should not do it.

If your editing software can produce motion from the still image you can just take the last frame of from the previous portion of the video and set the stationary and moving points (and if you are doing some 3D-like effect akin to rotating in the Z-axis also the depth values). Another approach is if you have a video that records the 'effect' and then you ...

It's two very basic tools in After Effects. The first is simply either a perspective correction or a 3d transform depending on which way you want to do it coupled with an x/y movement across the frame. There are also a few different ways you can approach the blur such as using a layer as the basis of the amount of blur and using a mask or using a filter ...

I think you should use the "Bad TV" plugin to achieve this effect. It has a setting to glitch images, and make them look as though the encoding has broken: http://aescripts.com/bad-tv/ An example: ...

If he/she is a professional actor you don't have to try and make him cry. It's part the actor's job. And again professional or not you cannot fake a cry without making the actor sad ( meaning just tears or fake ones ) . Otherwise the overall scene will seem fake. What you should do is make the actor understand why he/she has to cry in that scene and most ...

A 'menthol blower' is what I've seen recently used on set. The makeup artist will blow through it into the actor's eye to irritate it. A search on Google might give you some leads.

Create the emotion and use eye drops only as a final touch, if needed. If you try, you will find you can pretty much create any emotion at will. The actors should be sad when playing these parts, only difference is that when you are purposefully causing yourself to be sad, it's actually pretty fun.
