Creating a Breakaway Glass Freezer Door for a Horror Film
Filming the horror flick Laid To Rest on the grounds of a former asylum for the criminally insane presented a host of challenges for F/X artist Eric Porn.
Problem? One shot required the film’s murderous maniac to smash his face through a freezer window pane in pursuit of his next victim. Many panes were needed in a hurry.
Solution? Smooth-On’s SMASH!® Plastic breakaway glass.
SMASH!® Plastic allowed Eric and his crew to quickly recreate the breakaway panes needed to keep the night’s shooting schedule on time and on budget.
