Hey. I'm new here and not very experienced on internet things but i'm pretty good at it (i think). Oh well. I am a very inexperienced and VERY broke young film director. I'm working on a movie now that is named after a song. The song is called Kingofdasouth by T.I., the movie is call Tha Kingsofdasouth (of course tha song is the title song). I has an overly stupid and unrealistic (but at tha same time serieos) plot. Basicly it is a head gangster/hitman dude being hunted by a crackhead (to me all the crackheads i know feel bad). If i were to tell u every thing i'd have to write alot. Insted i'ma post pics (very big ones) from it. PLEASE! I need help with FX and if u have suggestions feel free to say. I write more after the pics

None of the images show up for me and 4 consecutive posts in the space of 15 minutes is maybe a bit excessive. Ah the power of the button.

ok, so how do i fix that?



My way of explosions. I dont kno if uve done this before but o well.

U need:
1 bottle of "The Works" toilet bowl cleaner (it has to be tha works because it has different chemilcals) cost $1-3 at Wal-mart

1 box of aluminum foil. (dusnt hav to be a specific brand)

1 PLASTIC bottle (not glass becouse when it explodes it will thro dangerouse debris around, the plastic dusnt). Bottle can be a soda bottle (not can), water bottle (like alhambra, arowhead, or dasani), or even a 2 liter bottle (for the big deafining ones.


Now all you gotta do is put the cleaner in the bottle first. Fill it up like 1 1/2 to a couple inches (for the smaller water bottles). The take the foil and roll it up like a big blunt. Make it just skinny enough to fit in. Dont make it to long, maximum half the size of the bottle but it is preferred that u fit as much foil in the liquid as possible. I usually put 5-8 peices of foil in it. (Put the foil in fast for best results) Now screw on the cap tightly and shake it up the place it where u want. (standing for best results) then wait. It culd be a 30 second wait or a five minuet wait. either way the end is gud. It is safe because it is a bunch of hot gas expanding fast ( if the bottle is clear then u will know when it is about to low cuz u can se that a white smoky gas is forming and then the bottle expands pretty big and make a craking noise) The only danger is to your eyes and ears, there may be sum projectiles. Unless u r used to shooting gun without ear protection the dont get to close (get at least ten feet away if u arnet acting) with out covering your ears sumhow, u will be sorry, i was (but i aint def yet). U can later use the sound of the explosion for realistic gunshots. U can add dirt, rocks, ash, dust, or crushed charcole on top and put it in a hole (deep enough to conceal the bottle and still hav it standing) for better efects. O and depending on your ratio of foil to cleaner at the end you may have a bunch of EXTEMELY hot/boil acid that bubble out fumes that burn your lungs! It is cool, unless u stick ur head in the actual smoke u cant smell it. and the acid just let it cool off then try not to touch it. It looks like a bunch of silvery liquid metal. Also it may leave peices of scorched foil behind. I'll put up pics when i learn how to do it rite. later and gud luk. sorry for the 300 hunderd page post.

here's what I do for explosions:

you need 90 dollars (USD) and a credit card.

1.Get 90 dollars (USD)
2. Buy AlamDV2
3. Edit Explosions in
4. Sit back with a nice glass of lemonade.

the fumes dont actually burn ur lungs it just seems that way. And u cant breath the unless u stick ur head DIRECTLY in the steam and intentionaly take a deep breath. and the chemical arnet dangerous just hot. like i sed let it cool of for about a coupl minits then it is preffered that u use glove. But i dont know where any of my glove are so i tuch it all the time. it just stings in cuts. just pick it up wen ur done and thro it away. then make another one, just for fun.

this is the technike for the people like me who don't hav 90 bucks to spend and even if they did probly wont know whut there doing on the computer system without good held. Plus i luv scaring the hell out my freinds. it takes like 30 seconds to make. then u sit back with ur lemonade. and watch it blow live. and u can experiment with different bottles and propotions.

90 bucks
using hard computer software
taking long time to make
dont even get a real explosion or sound
dont get to watch live
cant scare/trick ur frends like sumone is hunting u or u died.

Cost less than 10 bucks
no tricky computer sofware
real (but safe) explosion
done in less than to minits
LIVE
and u can stand by it or in it for more reality
fun to do. efen if u arent making a movie
4th of july every day, for free!
u can reuse the soundFX

One time this kid blew it up in his hand. He lived to make another one about 2 seconds later. the another then another. And he did it at school. The teachers and students loved him cuz to the teachers it was an "experiment" and to the students it was a grenade. I got blown up once to cuz this kid dropped sumthing on it and it was in the way of filming and after arquing i ended up going to get it and when i turned to run BAM! i was fine. My ears were just ringing for a few seconds. I felt like that guy on Blackhawk Down who got blown up by the RPG and was ok. It was fun and cool. to tha little bastard didn't even hit record so i can see how i look as a soldier.

Reading these posts make my eyes hurt from having to correct the punctuation and spelling in my head. Also, your starting to make it apparent your a definate pyro. Also, since you know the storyline sucks, then why waste your time on it?

even though this kid is going about this all wrong and is very immature about all of this, he does make one point. real live explosions always look better than alamdv or digital explosions unless done by top end 3d software. i cant stand when people put alamdv explosions in their <A TITLE="Click for more information about movies here..it takes all seriousness away from their movie and it looks so out of place and fake..its only been implemented good a few times here, but even then its still obviously fake. It is important to keep your creative side going while filming and try to pull off as many effects as u can during production rather than post-production.

I want to know how the hell toilet bowl cleaner and aluminum foil can make a bottle explode. And that has got to be the most retarded method ever...

Just take a plastic bottle, put some water and some dry ice in it, and BAM! You've got an explosion. And what's this? No harmful chemicals or acids? Whaddyaknow!

The Chemicals react with the aluminum creating a high pressure gas. Those bombs are currently attributed the highest homemade bomb body count other than black powder pipebombs.

Dry ice is far, far safer and cleaner. And also, its concussion based, no acids or shrapnel when using a plastic bottle. Pretty much, if one goes of in your hands, it wont likely kill you, but instead knock you out. (not that thats amazingly better)

I saw a video where I guy got his hand blown off because he held onto the chemical version one for too long. That doesn't seem like too much fun to me. Not to mention, it's not the safest way like you said, thakods.

Hmmm... I saw it not too long ago, lemme see if I can dig it up.

Edit:
Turns out, I saw it at my friends house. He has an obsession with downloading videos off the internet, so it would be pretty hard to figure out where he got it (he has hundreds). If you really want to find it, I would start by searching through some of those stupid video sites and whatnot for explosions. That should start you off at least. smile

Since when was Alamdv hard? And take a long time to use it? I also wasn't aware that the point of making a movie is to scare your friends into thinking you died.

What! Why is that disturbing? It's not as though you could see anything happen. Just a big white poof, then the ground, and "Ow."

Huh. Well, at least it has now been seen, although it seems as if it is not the method described here.

about tha part were u can trick ur frends i ment that u can also use it to make a prank. next i guess i was judging that computer system to make a point. sorry. I've never used it. or heard of it. so again sorry.
next tha part about the money i meant 1s uve spent tha 10 buks then as long as u got little dasani bottles u got tha 4th free. until u run out of cleaner. And also this IS safe. mabey i didnt xplain well enuff. it is like popping a balloon. and there is no shrapnel unless u put it there. tha water bottles r used cuz they dont make debris like harder plastic/glass wuld. and this cant possibly blow off ur hand, it is just gas building in a bottle that disperses 1ce it pops. My science teacher tought me specificly for my movies cuz i wanted to use sum sodium. and that kid was just fine. that punk nigga that got his hand blown off must used sum fuked up chemicals to do that. & u downte nied tu chekk mi spehlinnnk. hokay. AND i'm thirteen and NOT a pyro. I only really do it when i'm shooting and only 1ce at a time. I dont really care for fire or things like that. just guns. so if that is pyro then okay.

ps. sorry 2 any1 who hates tha "n" word. i just call every1 that. I just held up for a little while cuz i got banned frum other places 4 sayin it. just xcuse me im not gud at computer stuff. i'll get my frend 2 help me. And 2 Brettsta if u ment it was ur 14th birthday then happy birthday. if its not then ok. And ive been blown up too. i was fine my ears were just ringing for a few seconds.

So it costs you 10 bucks to make an explosion. Alamdv cost you 90 dollars and you can do anything you want after that. I would think you have already made 9 explosions, thats enough to buy alamdv.

lol i tried making an explosion with petrol, like last year, it was boring, small and ineffective, very hard to get timing right. If it's a shot where the guys near it, you have to film 2 passes and roto the guy, which is boring, i'd rather use some cool alamdv explosions+some live action smoke.

Yeah, I made a few of these relatively unpredictable "devices" when I was in high school, although hydrocloric acid was used instead of thakod's drain-o, or whatever it is. Regardless, the chemical(s) which cause the reaction with the aluminum are caustic and get all over the place, at least in my experience. This is a farily dangerous thing to mess around with. You certainly don't want it getting in your actors' eyes, or preferably on them at all.

Also, they are incredibly unreliable when (I would assume) timing is a factor in a shot. I just can't think of any real practical use for this concoction. I'd feel safer using ground up rocket engines and a 6/12 volt battery with an igniter and doing the sound in post.

Hm. I dunno; This forum is devoted to general filmmaking, but is supported by CSB-Digital, yes? Isn't the whole point of AlamDV (which I will purchase the moment the OSX version is available) to try and achieve these sorts of effects with out blowing up the house or burning your pals? I personally wouldn't care to see this site morph into a posting zone for anarchist cookbook recipes, especially by posters who make no sense, when you can understand them.

Let me know if I'm being off-base.

I would definitely NOT recommend creating explosions for your movies with the drano/foil bomb method. It's unstable, unpredictable, and extremely irresponsible. No, it is not safe to have actors standing over a 2 liter bottle variation of this method.

Any teacher who actually recommended their students attempt this on their own should be fired on the spot. I'm a retired teacher, and just thinking that an educator would advise something so ludicrous as creating chemical explosives for recreational purposes makes me mad beyond words can adequately describe.

The only reason I retired was so I could run my own indoor paintball business.


I strongly urge you to NOT use the drano/foil option. use dry ice and water. it's much safer. ESPECIALLY if you do not have any previous experience in pyrotechnics.

(Raising hand, lowering head) ... 32, 32 years of age here as well. Oh well, at least I was old enough to get to see pre-premiere of all three episodes of the original SW Trilogy on the Fox backlot..!

I can tell when it's going to rain, too..! My joints get all achy and my glass eye falls out of its socket. I'm sorry, where were we? Oh yes, I believe I was talking about when I had to trudge 27 miles through the snow (one way) to get to my sod-floored one-room school with a dung-burning oven.

Cough-cough..! I think I need to go have a lie down; All this typing has inflamed my knuckles and caused my vision to blur.

OK, ok... Ya get th' point... ha.

36 here, although about to become a student again. I was around before the Internet, before home computers and even before home VCRs (or at least home VCRs for anyone who wasn't loaded).

I remember Bagpuss and Fingermouse and the Clangers properly, unlike The Bloody Students of Today (I'm going to spend a lot of time conflicted) who've appropriated them as some sort of "cool".

Even as a feckless teenager though I remember both speaking and writing a language that at least approximated English ... perhaps there were less E numbers and artificial preservatives in my day ....

Whoa. Its like impossible to figure out people's ages here. I had no idea that ice man was 32 or that Brettsta just turned fourteen. I thought it was vice versa (no offense). I also assumed that most people on here were either people in their teens like myself, people who are in their twenties: CX3 among others, or those freaky 40 year old stalker types who come to this site just to use the forum.

Ah well. Just shows you how wrong i was. I also now realize that even people that are younger than me have much more experience and skill than I do. Wow. All yall youngies who are amateur filmmakers and immature people and are growing their skills as a filmmaker- don't stop. Improve those skills and you might end up creating films that even rival that of.... *GASPS* Sollthar! *Shudders* I dread that day!

Nah. just kiddin about that sollthar bit. Peace Out!

EDIT: And about the explosions: Thakods, You are a fool who's gonna blow yourself up one day. You want to scare your friends, buy a mask or something, don't make a caustic BOMB that endangers you and others. We're not talking about CG alamdv explosions here (which, btw, you can add to a movie in like 2 minutes! Idiot! What are you doing on this site if you've never heard of alamdv! Don't be a fool and waste forum space talking about doing something that's gonna blow your friggin hand off!) or a simple dry ice explosion. Major motion picture companies don't shake up a bottle of Drano for movies, they use controlled pyrotechnics and lights. All-in-all, don't be a fool; stop the drano explosions.

I'm turning sixteen later this year. Not that old, but older than many of the people on this forum. (BTW, how did you come to the conclusion that I was twelve?)

EDIT: Maybe if you've seen my picture you'd think I was twelve, many people do. The pics on my videos and on my website are fairly old. Plus, I'm short, so I get mistaken for a twelve year old alot of the time.

YET ANOTHER EDIT: Pooky, how old are you?

AHEM I think that I deserve a +1 for teaching the community a valuable lesson in judgement... smile lol jp (tho if you want to +1 me feel free smile)

As for Ice_Man's age, before revealing his senility, I thought he was 16 - 18 he seemed pretty damned adament about his stance on intel and the fact that he had some sort of knowledge on the subject made me completely rule out that he was old...i obviously was mistaken wink . What really made me feel that he was younger and inexperienced was the fact that he chose Inhell over AMD twisted lol I love busting b... um.... spheres smile (there are kids and elders here, can't swear round them!) Anywho back to the topic at hand smile

In all actuallity I really don't think 30s are old... I just like to give youse guys a hard time cuz I bet you're thinking about it aren't ya "hmmm...maybe I am old...nahh... i mean It's not like I HAve a steady....well..I mean I Don't live in a...." .{GASPS} " I AM OLD!" lol no you aren't....I mean I think that Hot 30 year old chicks are wicked hot....{thinks} well actually.. I mean if a hot chick came onto me and was 30...that wouldn't stop me smile Idk...your in your 30s you are in a transitional phase or something... smile Ok... I am losing myself and those teenage hormones are kicking in now that I have hot chicks on the brain...wow don't i sound like a geek... oh well... it's great being young.. in case you forgot, it's still great smile

Cutty, are you the result of some sort of gene-splicing experiment between Jack Kerouac and some sort of chimp?

I'm sorry, who do you mean? thakods? becuase that is true. Only an idiot would say all that mess about AlamDV and then argue that caustic, hazardous chemicals that burn your lungs only feel like they're burning your lungs.

Yes, I mean him. Do you see any other douche bags around here? (not including myself, of course)
