I have a scene from a movie I made where an actor is standing over another actor after beating him savagely then he spits in his face. He just pretends to spitt because I was thinking someone could maybe make a plugin of spit dropping and splatting on the camera. It would be from the view of the person who get's beaten up looking at the guy standing over him. I would greatly appreciate someone makeing this or offering suggestions on what to do.
Thanks again.

Huh? If he's aiming for the lense, just dont be behind it, because we wont see you anyway.

here's the cheaper and better way.

find a clear cd case, and place it over your lens. Get the guy to spit on the cd lens of a rested camera. That way the spit doesnt totally block out the len's view and it looks better as well as you not having to clean up spittle from your lens.

the way we filmed it was i layed there and filmed him standing over me and it wont be very easy 4 him to aim his spit perfectly in the lens because my camera is very small but i guess I could lay the camera faceing up some how and try it because it may look better than a plugin but if anyone is still willing to make one that'd be great.

I did this before. The best thing to do would to put a small piece of glass or plastic in front of your lens and spit on it.
