Firearms

As always, you are encouraged to get reference. Even if you've never been present for the shooting of an actual gun, there's no doubt that you've seen one fired many, many times, running the gamut from cheesy television westerns and cop shows to such gourmet shoot-'emups as The Matrix and Terminator 2.


Re-creating gunplay is relatively straightforward via compositing. There are two basic types of shots to be outlined here: the firing of a gun and the result of bullet hits in the scene. The former can be done entirely with compositing. For the latter, compositing can do the trick in simple cases, but more active scenes of mayhem usually require practical elements on set. I'll discuss both cases, so that the independent filmmakers among you are prepared for either scenario.
