Power of Practical Effects

Course Type
Short Course

What low-budget horror movie doesn’t need a bucket of fake blood and the odd severed limb? Doesn’t your edge of the seat action movie need a little explosion now and again? Maybe your Indie rom-com needs a decapitated corpse to spice things up a bit?
