Need someone to make a small prop for a video £££££££

I'm shooting a little video clip - possibly as early as Thurday 26th July (pm) and I need someone to make (and paint) a little cardboard prop for me.

I need a little bomblet replica for a clip that ends with a bang. Basically, it's just a cylinder - length = 170mm diameter = 64mm - painted bright yellow with some red bits.

Will pay cash for your time. Are you up for the job? Email me at <!-- e --><a href="mailto:donaldbforbes@msn.com">donaldbforbes@msn.com</a><!-- e --> and I will send you a photo to work from.

Donald.

Here's one I made earlier:

Big thanks to the Blue Peter Book of Bombs.

I've spared you the horror of the full movie - which is aimed at PC gamers. They like that sort of thing, you know.

And here's the finished work of art <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/cats/ditzy.gif" alt="wink" title="wink" /><!-- s;) -->

And it's in bad, bad taste. But gamers, who are the target audience, like babes and bombs.

Total time to shoot was one hour, with a good part of that waiting for seagulls to go away.

And the editing took me well under and hour Happy

Production costs = £10 including the actress's bus fare.

I made it all by myself with stuff I bought from Tesco.

Most of it was filmed in the little garden outside the Frankland building on the main campus.

We recovered most of the remains of the actress afterwards, although if anybody finds a finger lying around in that area do let me know as I would like to send it back to her mother.

Still looking for one more actress/model for the next project - about two girls at the seaside who find something buried under the sand. Anyone interested in running around in the buff on Tentsmuir beach for £60 get in touch. The storyboards are at Science With a Big See at MySpace in the pics area.
