Reel Creations makes some theatrical blood in varying kinds -- darker and more dried, some brighter from the lungs, etc. Via Chance.
John August on Zombie Class Situations. I hope one day to shoot a screenplay wherein a character says "We have a zombie - class situation."
I'm only going to say this a couple-dozen times so listen up. If you're shooting picture you cannot be thinking about sound. Trying to not have a dedicated sound person is a setup for fail. If you want to make your movie sound like a home movie, then sure, fine, don't bother to have someone dedicated to making the dialog sound big and full and present and relatively dry. Otherwise, get a dedicated sound person. Remember, of all the people on set they will be the only person not working for picture. And picture is only 50% of the movie.
I'm still amusing myself with thinking that Pandora Machine is the smallest micro-studio in America. We don't even have one full-time employee. Although it seems like we must have one. Or two. Including me. Right now they're primarily volunteering.
