Movies Make Me Sick!

by on Dec.22, 2009, under Rant

Well, actually not really. Vomiting is something filmmakers tend to gloss over, have you ever noticed this? When (insert drunk/disgusted character) has to hurl one up on screen the director usually hand feeds them a few spoonfuls of porridge, and gets them it spit it out at the appropriate moment. Or it’s the dry heaves against a wall.

Why? – oh Dave, nobody bothers with this, why would anyone actively want to watch proper vomming on screen?

Well, maybe because we’re aiming for realism? It’s alright to have a character’s head explode digitally, casting eyeballs outward, and exposing brain tissue. But nobody in the effects department wants to sit in front of their mac and composite the fountain of spew that erupts from the mouth once we’ve all had a skinfull. We’re obviously far too delicate for this sort of thing….

We demand genuine, carrot ladden, sweetcorn ridden Spew!
