Ever hear a hippie talk about "what if guns, you know, like, shot flowers in stead of bullets, man? Wouldn't be the world be beautiful if, like, that happened?" Apparently, YouTube awesome-maker FreddieW decided to put that theory to the test with this fantastic video. From his production blog:
This one was basically Brandon thinking “what if we did red flower petals as blood hits?” because it would let us be ridiculously violent, yet not appear so because it’s, well, flower petals. We went from there – sunflowers for muzzle flares, flowers shooting up with the ground hits, general 70s look and vibe (although the G36 is most definitely not a gun from the 70s). Once we got the VW Bus, it was on.
He shot it on a Canon 7D. His website has great notes on how he shot the video and all of his videos are pretty damn awesome.
