Warning! – Are you filming this? It started so innocently. I just wanted some do-it-yourself filmmaking
tips from my Buddy Erik Beck, how could I know my love for movie science would lead
to my blood-soaked demise? This time I’m going to show you how to create
a throwing knife effect. Oh. That should have been my first clue. It’s a really simple prop. And this is super cheap and super easy. Okay. Erik Beck is like a Midas of the DIY effects
world. On the website Indymogul he teaches people
how to turn random junk into cinematic gold. Most of the supplies cost a couple of bucks,
but there are a few indispensables you should have before starting any Indymogul project. A hot glue gun and paint. And for a horror movie, Pola’s famous homemade
blood from earlier in the show. It’s basically you need to get two matching
toy knives. All right. I actually already pre-prepped one of these,
but I can give you a quick breakdown of how I built it. Okay. One of these fake blades is for the bad guy. The other one, which Erik already prepped,
is going to be rigged up to me. And the cool thing about these toy knives,
which is why I got them, is they’re actually hollow inside and it makes it really easy
to stick this piece in. I have some cardboard here, but what I, what’s
better is like a little, like a think piece of cardstock. If you’re using cardboard, attach the knife
with hot glue, which big plus, looks gruesome and coagulated. It’ll melt smooth and you kind of go through,
dab it and just make it look extra gross. If you want to upgrade, use sturdier cardstock
like Erik’s pre-made rig. Drill a couple of holes in it and attach to
the L-bracket with nuts and bolts before hot gluing. And then obviously you go over it with some
paint. Yep, a little bit of red paint. Next up, the star of any gore fest, the blood. For the blood system, this is going to be
also super simple. This is a five-ounce syringe. You can get these online at like a medical
supply store or something like that. It’s not a ton of blood, but if you like
pulse it and just. Yeah that’s what we want. Exactly. This will, you know, stick on right here when
you’re ready to go, but you have to make sure you get the right tube to fit your syringe, obviously. Just the right spurt factor, Erik plugged
up the exit hole with glue and sliced through the side of the tube with an X-Acto. You can just sort of you can just pump it. Oh, that sprays out really nice. Yeah, it gets a little more like natural. It looks like it’s coming out in like three
or four streams. Exactly. You know, it stretches out. It’ll be like this. Okay, so yeah, there’s plenty. And then you’ll be off-camera pushing the
syringe. Yup. The last step is to just hot glue this onto
the knife rig. A little more. Don’t be shy. More? That’s good? It’s pretty much done. This has just got to dry for a little bit. You got to hold that for a while? Yeah, someone’s got to hold it. Okay I’ll, I’ll let you hold that. I’m going to go get into character. Actors. Lights, camera, onscreen warning. – – – First up, we shoot the part before I get popped
with the cleaver. Not to name-drop, but we’ve got some serious
A-list professionals here. White medical tape. Secure the knife with some tape. Put on a second shirt to hide the rigging,
and we’re just about ready. Now, for the camera trick. We’re going to shoot the cleaver in the
killer’s hand and use a camera trick called a whip pan. See how it whipped away? It looks like he threw it, but it’s still
in his hand. Cut to a different set-up, we whip pan to
me with the cleaver rig already hooked up. When you edit it together it looks seamless
as you are about to find out. Don’t worry, April. I’ll protect you. No, Rodney. The cleaver killer’s still out there. It’s okay. I’m going to come back. And when I do, I’m finally going to marry
you. Huh? Rodney! Why? And cut. Okay, yeah, cool effect, man. Yeah, cool. I’m glad you liked it. Oh, thanks a lot for helping today. Yeah You know what? I’m going to head out. I got some videotapes All right. I got to work on.

hey guys it's Kat welcome back to my channel as you can see we are in my living room right now and if you follow me on Instagram you know I've been talking about it for months I really want to revamp this space and make it more my own style so shut up and challenge me he thinks that I can't glam this place up and make it like my dream a living room space without spending over $300 does he know who I am does he really I wanted to take you guys with me I feel like this is the perfect opportunity to bring more DIYs to my channel and home decor things that I'm really passionate about and then I love so I want to bring you guys along as you can see this place already has don't look in its own vibe going on but it's kind of a lot to me I don't know I feel like I'm over it you know these pillows have been riding with us since we first moved in this apartment and Shawn wanted them so bad but I hated them so they gotta go and then we have this DIY coffee table that I absolutely love I made this about two years ago but it's at somewhere it's here so it definitely needs some revamping so we're gonna take care of that plus it's the holiday season so we're gonna be revamping this place and making it a blush and gold winter wonderland so we're gonna be revamping that coffee table making some DIY Christmas support and making our own throw pillow covers that are super affordable where you can do any color you really want to so it's gonna be fun I'm so excited to bring you guys along on this journey first things first is what are you doing I don't know what are you doing okay good okay on that let me know okay I'm excited to be bringing you guys on this journey but first things first we are going to be doing this coffee table I've been wanting to redo this for a while so we're gonna take this outside spray paint it with the goal to make sure we seal at this time because that's a problem we didn't seal it last time which is why has most wear and tear and leave it outside to dry as we go and run our errands and then we'll be back to finish the rest of the projects so are you guys ready I'm ready if we have a three hundred dollar limit you have it okay I have a three hundred dollar limit thank you John Bosley three nested bucks can we do this bring this making my winter wonderland living room that I've always wanted cause it on a mission I already got my deals in my head alright guys we are gonna get ready to spray paint break out the spray paint that I got is the design master brilliant gold I'm pretty sure this is the one I use the first time I just liked it it wasn't really like a metallic aminos more of like a map go so hopefully this is the one I got last time you'll see so it's pretty cold outside so I'm just gonna do this as quickly as possible and then we are going to seal it with neat matte clear spray paint and you know what you do so I originally got this table from Ikea I think it was around $79 it came in white so I spray painted it gold obviously and then put marble on the bottom for this marble contact paper so this is a really affordable DIY that you can do to get something really glam that does not look like those 79 bucks first stop is breakfast just so named estaphan McDonald's really quick just against quick little sandwich and I'm starved and head to what store first maybe target oh gosh oh yeah I'm sorry haha we have two hours before we have to pick up case in from school and Avery from Kelsey self so you're gonna drive it awfully slow I have to go to jo-ann's to get fabric I really want to make some DIY throw pillows maybe some fluffy ones but super easy because I haven't used my sewing machine and so long and for those of you who don't know how to sew I've shown it to be something so most likely gonna use hot glue to make some really awesome Phillips so obviously you never go to Joanne's and Michaels or a seam or without coupon so I have like 55 percent off coupon and you can use like coupons from a seam or agilent's so they all take competitors coupons so make sure you guys I get you someone to get whatever you need this is Mara that I've been eyeing for a while and there is a tripod lamp that I loved for like two years I've been waiting for too long on clearance and never has but your girl has a 20% off coupon today so I'm taking advantage Hey and I got three hundred down with you I'm gonna do so much with this budget alright so we just got to jo-ann's we're gonna go in really quick just to grab that fabric use my coupons baby coming in with me you're gonna go babe really I'm so tired you have ten minutes every time I starts 10 minute okay all right guys ten minutes to get this fabric it's not even enough time is right here found it so this is where all of the faux fur is they are currently 40% off and then I'll be able to use my 20% off coupon hey hey okay I like this one yeah we'll go with this one it is $40 originally so there's two big pieces that I for sure I'm gonna get while we're here make sure I'm using my Toyota and then I'm probably gonna get up to the little knickknacks so I found this in the dollar spot it's three dollars and I think it kind of gives me that chip and Joanna five of those and I'll figure out what I'm gonna put inside I really want to get this this baby Oh oh this one that is what we're gonna be able to get 55 where are we gold spray paint everything yes Kathlyn yes that's me I like that $3.99 it's like really heavy it's real do it some cover books that have like solid some really thick books that I can watch maybe the paper around at the papers I'm pretty sure that that's not the core and that's not on the budget all right guys we're back home we get to pick up the boys from school get them lunch it's only around 4 p.m. but it's already dark outside so sorry if the lighting is a little wonky but first things first is we need to get this rug out of here this is our old rug I got this for $49 target clearance like two years ago love it but it's time to go we need something new Airy fresh so I bought a new rug from rug Xena stay calm that I got like 60% off of it hoping that I loved it as much as I did on the website it was around 184 dollars but we don't count that in the budget because I already bought that so that's not included in my budget okay just disclaimer right there so let's get this one out of here and bring the new one in alright guys so we finished the table it looks awesome the rug is out and I'm loving it so far so now we're just gonna put up the mirror that we got in Target and the lamp let's do it okay stay – and we are ready to put on the finishing touches in this living room I'm loving the way it looks so far everything that's so big but now I'm gonna make it my Christmas wonderland that I've been talking about and we're gonna do some DIYs so let's get into it [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] so yesterday and I found some at Dollar Tree – plus I'm using some that I already had at home but what I'm gonna do is just take off the paper cover because some of these are really beautiful as is and then I'm just gonna use this as a core on the show this is one of Shawn's books that I'm just gonna borrow and look at that right there on the Shelf or you can put them standing up so when you have books that are just laying around hardcover books just play around with them you can also paint them if you want to just all solid colors if you have one like this I just flipped the paper inside out and covered it that way so that way I can just maybe write something here or put some you know like little letter stickers here and bring it all like into the holiday vibe maybe I'll put joy to the world I don't know so I'm gonna do this to a bunch of books that I have and then start putting them on the shelf that's it for the last DIY we are gonna be making some throw pillow so this is the one I already made and it also made this faux fur pillow right here it was super easy guys and I didn't even have to use a sewing machine so I'm gonna show you guys how to do this with nothing else but a glue then I'm just gonna grab this and draw a line at where 18 inches would be you should use a fabric measuring tape I can't find mine but it's fine just kind of getting an idea the cut is not gonna be perfect but all the way around you're gonna have to cut through depends on how big you want your pillow to be just make sure that you have enough fluff in here you want to take out more so it's not as big it all depends on your preference that looks much much better so now I'm just going to pin this shut just gonna grab my pins and just start pinning this close remember it doesn't have to be perfect you're just holding this in place so now I'm just gonna take my clothes on but if you don't want to use a glue gun there's many alternatives we have liquid stitch right here that I bought at jo-ann fabrics or Michaels there's also like a heat and bond where you could also just use a iron and it's just like like double-sided tape at home most oh you just cut the exact strips that you need they also have them in little strips so there's a bunch of alternatives this is literally just an easiest way for me I'm so I'm just gonna grab the glue and start right here in the corner I'm just gonna make sure I put a good amount just bring it along here and then hold it be careful because it is hot so I'm just tapping it close like this and then going throughout the entire thing you wanna make sure that it's dry throughout so you don't miss a spot and then just start taking out the pins so right there you have your throw pillow you can go ahead and cut the excess trim I'm not even going to bother because I know it's just going to lay down under the pillow cover anyways so first step is done now we're going to take our fabric so I have two pieces that I cut out about eighteen by eighteen if you have patterned fabric for this part you're gonna want to make sure that the pattern the right side of the pattern is in the inside of the fabric and the wrong side is on the outside so I'll show you why in a second so I'm just gonna make sure that it's all lined up but you're gonna want this to be as close to perfect as possible so the easiest way I found to do this is just get a ruler and draw out a line with a markup washable marker or chalk preferably just gonna use this inside anyways and lightly drop you want to make sure you're leaving a little bit of fabric out to give you some allowance right there cuz this is the area that you know putting your glue and then when we flip it inside out all of this isn't going to be shown so now we're going to just start placing the glue underneath making sure not to go past that line that be true little sections at a time and then if it's too hot just use something to press it down but you want to make sure that you're getting that glue and there's no spots in between that are missing because that will just be like so once you do all three sides Vienna make sure you don't close up the last side because that's where you're gonna put into your pillow so just finish up this third section do not close the last one now once this is dry you're gonna flip it inside out then just check the seams to make sure you didn't miss any spots but all looks good Oh see I kind of made a little mess up here there's a marker going through there so make sure that you use chalk and not something that's see-through like that all right looks good so far so now we're gonna get our pillow and we're gonna see now for the top we're gonna do this in a way that the seam isn't showing so you're gonna hold the fabric in on both sides as much as possible that'll get you as close to the top of the pillow you might have to cut some fabric just so there isn't like so much texture of it that's kind of but this is the gist of what you're gonna do here you're gonna fold it in and then you're gonna be putting a little bit of glue in here and sealing it shut and going along that way so see how it gives you a perfect seam right there I don't like all this extra that we have going on here so I'm gonna go and cut the fabric and then I'll do this and then once you finish it'll look like that so you're gonna put a little bit of glue right there on the trim bring both sides together and then push it closed just like so so there we go that is our first pillow looks pretty good now we're gonna go on to the faux fur now I got my two pieces of fabric here I've also measured it eighteen by eighteen so with the difference between this one is you're gonna put both right sides facing you and you want to make sure that the fabric is both going the same way on both sides like both going down on both sides because if you put one down then one up it's not gonna really look as good so we're just gonna start right on one end and you're gonna glue you're gonna put your glue right here as close to the end as possible and then you're going to fold this one in just a little bit and bring it on to that glue like so so this is just gonna make it look more seamless right here at the seam whereas if you just glue it together this is how it would look are you turning the fabric in kind of gives it that illusion like it's just perfect so that's what we're gonna do throughout the entire thing just fooling section-by-section going carefully making sure not to miss any area when you get to your last section you're not going to leave the whole thing open unless you're gonna put another pillow in there so if you put another pillow in here that fits perfectly you can do that and then just close it up but our other option would be to use the rest of the fluff from the left over pillow and stuff that in there so that's what I'm going to do right now but before you do that you want to make sure that you're gluing shut the rest of your pillow and leaving about a third left over and that's where you're going to stop now they have your section open yes once you're all stuff just close it up the same way and you are all done go DIY faux fur pillow all right guys we have officially completed my living room transformation I'm so in love with how this room came out it's my new favorite room in the entire house honestly it's just so much more homey and inviting and it's pretty women snuggle up on this road with the boys all day and watch movies so what do you guys think all right babe what we really want to know is how much did you actually spend okay so I cut it kind of close but my total spending was three hundred and fifteen dollars and 52 cents so yeah you kind of won this round well I technically won because I got the living room of my dream so but when I told you guys I bought this rug over a month ago so we don't comp that what I actually spent this weekend was like a hundred and thirty dollars which is really good but either way $315 is amazing for the transformation that we did here we made our own throw pillows which saved us at least $60 and just by sprucing up that coffee table instead of just buying another one we see hundreds plus the quick and easy DIY holiday decor from that winter wonder live touch that I was really looking for and we just use a bunch of things that we already had laying around the house or in our holidays fashion that alone saved us some time so what do you guys think do you love it if you do let me know down in the comments below and make sure to give this video a thumbs up if we get this video to 2,000 likes I promise to bring more

Say what’s up on social:


hey guys I'm Forrest like the trees today we're gonna talk about the three lessons every creative learns about finances too late so let's dive right in number one you gotta pay yourself first I feel like I learned this one a little late in the game I created a fashion line and the biggest mistake I always made when I sold garments was that I never paid myself at the end of the day I had no money to show for all the work that I had put in and as business owners and artists we always want to make sure our business is on its feet by reinvesting on upgrading our equipment but you have to remember you're not working for yourself for free you are your very first employee and the most important one and if you're not paying yourself properly at the end of the month then your business is really just a pool of your own free labor and you're basically an unpaid intern and personally I don't need any more internship hours log to my name so start paying yourself weekly bi-weekly whatever it is just give yourself a paycheck so the second lesson is to budget but budget to find clarity budget to clarify where your money is on the up so often budgeting is misconceive just counting every penny and is no fun but budgeting is really more about taking control of your money and knowing where your pennies end up you want to know where your money is going and how do you use your money to your advantage right if your money can work a little bit for you then why wouldn't you want to be in control of that budgeting doesn't have to be complicated either so just take a moment and explore different types of budgeting that can work best for you as an artist and that leads me to my third lesson one type of budget that I find super visual and easy to wrap your head around and you know this is especially if you're an artist or creative it's called the fifty thirty twenty rule it's a super simple way to remember where your money should go a budget for people who don't want to budget and so first think of a circle and we're gonna slice up your circle like a pie your circle is gonna be your income and we're going to distribute your income in two different sections 50 30 and 20 so slicer pie down the middle and 50% of your income is gonna be your knees like groceries rent insurance you know whatever the things that are necessary for you to keep thriving or surviving next slice the other half of your pie 30 percent is going to be anything that you want and we're separating your pie into once and needs so far do you want a new pair of shoes or do you need them whatever your wants are it should generally only be about 30% of your total income and so the remaining 20% is gonna go to your savings and this can be savings account or investments even but the more you save the more your money will work for you and you know make sure to start investing early the earlier you invest the better and so I hope some of these tips helped you guys out especially if you are creative struggling to get a hold of your finances if you guys have any questions just DM me on instagram at forest Alethea and i can help you to get the most out of your money now go get creative and manage your money thanks so much for watching if you like my video give me a little love like and subscribe below bye guys
