EDIT: THIS IS NOT HARRY POTTER RELATED!!!

hey pit, my friend and i are planning on doing a film, which we want to have some violence in. for our scene we have someone being shot 3 times, and my question is, for the blood effect, we were debating whether or not to use blood squibs. and i jsut want to ask, has anyone out there used blood squibs for films etc.? i just want to know the pros and cons, and, are they dangerous?

I came in expecting this to be about people born into wizarding families but have no magical powers...

Ohhhh I see. Well if you use them properly I don't see why they'd harm you or anyone else. Just be careful

That article says they're used to shatter materials. If they don't fracture his ribs or damage some internal organs, be prapared for some nasty skin damage.

hmmmmm, i have found a site which sells low powered squibs which will work for us. they claim not to need a specialist and not to be overly dangerous, but still, whoever wears it (most likely me) will have some form of "body armour" on.

Nope, strapping explosive to your friends chest wont hurt him at all. Just be sure to try and put him back together after his chest gets blown off the front of him.

Dude, they were used for blowing up ROCKS. WTF makes you think they blow up your friend? That is, unless your friend is made of Diamond, then by all means go for it.

blood squibs are small, and should not cause much harm providing care is taken and the wearer is wearing some form of protection. the way i was thinking it:

t-shirt
metal sheet (like a baking tray or whatever)
padding
squib
blood sack
outer t-shirt or plain shirt

Well yeah, at the very LEAST put something between it and him. Paintball armor is quite thick if you can get a hold of some, and it makes you look ripped

We used a pressure pump with some brewing kit lines to make blood spray when we simulated a decapitation in a low budget splatter film.

we thought of that, but for our scene, its going to be more practical (albeit more dangerous) to use squibs
