: 2014 Adventures Part 10...Actually 7.5...or 8 3/4...?
I missed one, but rather than going back to re-number we'll just add it here. It is in fact mid-2015 at the time of writing!
This terminal of DIA, by the way, sort of looks like 1980's EPCOT.
So mid-July I had another trip to Denver for some more OR training video work. This one also had a requirement for some special effects, though we decided not to hire the effects crew and do it ourselves, since realism was not as crucial.
I found several websites where you can buy things like bullet woulds, laceration appliances and makeup, gum arabic and the like. We also had the need for a severed finger, hand, leg and some bullet fragments.
$100 later I had everything delivered to the office, and here was my checked luggage for this trip (I wonder what TSA thought about this - my cat seems interested in that severed hand!):
When the time came I applied the bullet wounds and the vampire blood. I also created an appendix specimen, a generic looking tumor and powder residue.
This was a lot of fun, and I ended up doing the post on this same project as well.
I want to say some brew pubs were involved in this trip, though the Denver trips sort of blend together. Here's a shout out to MP&E, our Denver go to shop for camera gear and lighting.
Ok, I think I came home from Denver on a Sunday night redeye, then to the DR on a Thursday, then to LA, then to Chicago, though it could have been Denver, then Chicago, then DR then LA, or.....
Remind me to check my frequent flyer mileage balances!
