Our rigs come in a variety of styles, are very easy to use, and create consistently beautiful and effective bullet hit and blood effects every time. These rigs make otherwise complicated and expensive fx shots quick and easy. They reset quickly for retakes and can save tons of time on set and during rehearsal. Perfect for Film, TV and Theatre/live performance
" A fantastic effect and NO need for explosives licence, heavy storage containers or stand-by medical teams"....
Almost silent - the air operated squib effects are great for ”nervous actors” or when used in proximity to animals wary of loud noises for example. This also means you will not have to hand out ear-plugs to a crew anymore! (BloodyStuff CGI Effects can always help add sound effects or even more blood effects in post-production.)
There are two different versions of our Multiple hit air operated squibs
Air Operated Squib FX, can also be used to create smokey hits, dust hits, blood stabs or pulsating blood wounds. One of our units will transform you into a one-man army, creating all the hits a director could need.
Developed over several years by leading special effects professionals, to solve the increasing demands by producers, actors, SFX supervisors and insurers for a safe and cost effective alternative to conventional explosive squibs.
The Assassin - AirSquib Single Shot Hit Rig - Manual Air Pump powered - For HIRE
The Air Squib from BloodyStuff, is a pneumatic squib or air powered bullet hit simulator used for film, television or theatre productions to accurately simulate the illusion of an actor being hit by a single bullet from a small callibre weapon such as a pistol, revolver or rifle.
Safe, economic and portable with No need for long wires as the unit is completely self contained, easily hidden on an actors’ waist/belt, a leg or taped behind the back. The bloody ”hit” is set off with a remote radio controlled transmitter by either the actor or a second operator.
The Air Squib consists of three parts - the radio control transmitter, the portable, radio-controlled air ejector - hidden on the belt, or similar, and the special nozzle - placed on the inside of the shirt, where you want the bloody hit to appear.
The Bourne - SquibFX High Power Single Hit Rig - Co2 Powered - For HIRE
The Bourne Co2 powered single hit rig is a compact and high-tech bullet hit rig simulator exclusively from BloodyStuff. It is larger than the AirSquib Single shot as The Bourne can achieve a much bigger bullet hit effect from the rig. This is perfect for creating a big on-screen effect for the simulation of a bullet hit from a high powered/large callibre pistol, revolver, rifle or Carbine. Fabricated from miniature pneumatics and encased in high impact resistant urethane and a carbon fiber shell, this rig is all about plug and play. It is small enough that it can be worn discreetly under almost any wardrobe without obvious detection. The rig is driven with BloodyStuff threaded CO2 cartridges, and can be fired several times from a single cartridge. The trigger is hardwired and can put the power of firing right in the perfomer’s hands, but is also long enough to be fired by another operator. Powered by one 12V battery.
