I am looking for someone who can do something within a couple of days that will look good enough for about three seconds of screen time.
In a film we are doing, some sort of viral bomb explodes and the liquid inside lets out this blast of energy that melts a whole through the face of the unlucky bad guy. It needs to look gory and horrifying, as its being done to shock the audience and not to glorify it.
The effect I am after should look something like the Peter Firth face-melting scene situation in CHILL FACTOR. The lower half of the face melts and then drops off to show the skull and inside of the mouth with the teeth showing. The plugin can just be the lower half a face from the bridge of the nose to the chin, and be of average head shape with normal white skin tones. Dont worry about getting it to look absolutely perfect, the effect is going to be masked with camera blur, camera shake and a heat wave.
The resolution of the overlay needs to be pretty high, so if the plugin is gonna be huge in size because of it, thats fine. In fact, I would prefer it bigger. If you have CHILL FACTOR, or have seen it, thats great. For those who haven't, if you download these two pictures, they give you an idea of the plugin I am looking for:
Anyone who think they can do this, please post a reply here and we'll talk it through. I know its awfully short notice, but if you can do it before Sunday night(!), that's great. But there's not really a rush.
Thanks for listening.
