Re: Guns! Guns! How to pull off a realistic killing ?

Just for fun and further information, here is a guide I posted to help filmmakers get the gun scenes they need safely:
12 Greatest Myths about Firearms on Film Sets by David A. Brown

I am also very honoured that I have been asked to speak at the Filmmaker's Brunch on the opening Sunday of the Action on Film International Film Festival in Monrovia California August 19 2012. My topic will be: "Firearms in Film: How to achieve the look you need a) safely, b) legally, c) cheaply. (Pick any three.)"

This will emphasize how one can get good gunshots in the camera if they can find the right people and follow some simple safety guidelines. It doesn't have to cost a ton and the nice thing is, unlike a stunt, when we pull off a very tricky gunfight scene, nobody ever applauds our efforts. (That's the way I LIKE it ... safety simply becomes a normal way of life and everyone walks away wondering why they even need all their safety gear anyway because "nuthin' ever goes wrong around here.")
