Special Effects master...

"road block", 2008 ©

I was all pumped to go shoot this idea I had in my head today and the fact that it was pouring down rain was a large part of the reason. To my surprise, when I arrive at the location I had in mind the friggin clouds opened up and the rain stopped.

Fortunately my car is a mess and I found an empty bottle of windex in the back seat (where most of the garbage goes) and went down to the river under the bridge and filled it. Came back and squirted the shit out the windows for some rain "effect". It was a pain in the arse with the sun coming out because the raindrops were evaporating almost as quick as I could snap each frame. Anyway, that is the biggest special effect trick I've ever had to pull out of my bag. Look out Hollywood special effects producers, I got skillz!

i wish there was a second row of pics, so we could see where you store the props ( coffee cups and mcdonalds bags)

I agree with knuckles... maybe throw a sinister half-naked person in the back seat.

No in the floorboard, not the seat.
