Is anyone here really good with doing water effects?

I need water to move like a snake and spray on someone.

I've looked at all the presets and haven't found what i need. Anybody have the time to help out with my film.

Thanks please email me if interested.

Generally water is best to do practically. Its easy to get, easy to work with, and very difficult to simulate convincingly.

Obviously, there are some things that can't be done with practical water, but it may be worth it to modify the scene to fit what you can do, simply because water is so difficult to simulate. Can you provide any additional details about the shots you are trying to create?

Understood and I've learned my lesson on that one I'm at the understanding that the possibility of doing water can be done using an array of blur and liquifying techniques ones that I am totally unfamiliar with does anyone have some time available to lend a hand.
