Knife Throw in the Head Effect

Nothing could be more satisfying that throwing a knife at someone you really despise and hitting them square in the head.  But despite your best ninja skills I don’t recommend actually doing this unless you enjoy spending the rest of your days locked in a small room with a 300 pound man named Bubba.

To do this effect you’r going to need two prop knives, fake blood, a syringe and some tubing.  To start, you cut the end off one of the knives and attach the tubing so blood can come out of it.  You’ll want to attach the syringe to the tubing and hide the tubing either under a hat or with the actors hair.  The camera work is pretty simple as well and the video does a nice job of explaining where to cut and how to put the different scenes together to make a smooth sequence.
