You mean other than an off camera punch to the nose... :cheesy:

I just tried leaning my head forward (like in the video) and putting a couple of drops of water from an eyedropper inside of my nostril towards the tip. When I tilted my head back the water came out (much like the video) after almost a seconds delay. Sure there's a better way though (and I need to trim my nose hair - probably gave me a touch extra delay) but a blood analog would be slower. Not quite the delay from the video but maybe long enough and cheap. He is completely off camera for a moment and with movie magic that moment can be as long as you need to set it up. Hope this helps.

ahh i didn't notice that part where he's off camera. makes it much easier, i thought he held the blood in there from the part where his eyes changed.

Movie magic! :Drogar-BigGrin(DBG) As long as nothings moving in the background and you control the lighting you can take all the time you need. Snippety snip! Haven't shot that much myself but the scene that spins everyone out uses this trick. They know I was alone when I filmed it yet I walk passed the camera then pan onto myself. Final edit - 5 or 6 seconds; raw footage - minute and a half. Took about half an hour to time the cut so it was seamless.

Fill a gel cap with stage blood, insert nasally (careful not to insert too far, unless you enjoy ER visits and forceps) crush inside nose with finger pressure on the outside, let stage blood run out, blow out remnants of capsule afterwards.

Be sure to use the soft caps; the harder ones may actually tear the lining of the nose and lead to the real thing.
