    you should have used "real blood" instead of sticking some digital blood on to his legs. Try ketchup (nice for the white pants). or: I heard they use red corn syrup to recreate blood. Maybe you could try that.

    That's actually what I used.

    Bit off a rip off actually as the blood effects really aren't that good!

    I wanted a sort of looping spurt as well for when I'm crawling but there is no such thing so I had to keyframe the position of the blood splatter to the leg!

    I would have used real stuff but it was a spur of the moment thing all filmed and edited within about half an hour.

    Also I am sort of low on shorts (only have this pair) so ripping a hole for the blood to come out of wouldn't really have been good!

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I also wanted to add in this effect of me getting hit by a car.

    What do you think?

    To an amateur like me that looks pretty good! How did you do it?

    Did it in after effects with 2 separate clips filmed on a tripod then lots of masking and motion tracking of the car.

    If you look close I made a fake hood that pops up on impact!
