Broken femur Bone

Hi!

I have this scene that I would like to shoot.....

A cheerleader falls and breaks a bone...

I will do the fall via different shots.... wide to CU.....

But what are really want to do is finish with an XCU of the broken bone sticking through the skin.... Any ideas on how to do that....

Any good props?

well, they probably have something that would work from those Halloween make up FX things you find at the Spirit stores. You might have to cannibalize something from another type of make up cause I don't know if you'll find a femur necessarily

Nothing a lil' plaster de paris and some sticks won't solve.

Plaster of Paris -Plaster of Paris, or simply plaster, is a type of building material based on calcium sulfate hemihydrate (gypsum).

When the dry plaster powder is mixed with water, it re-forms into gypsum, Plaster is used as a building material similar to mortar or cement. Like those materials plaster starts as a dry powder that is mixed with water to form a paste, which then hardens. Unlike mortar and cement, plaster remains quite soft after drying, and can be easily manipulated with metal tools or even sandpaper. These characteristics make plaster suitable for a finishing, rather than a load-bearing material.

Found in arts and crafts stores. Used in art classes to make sculpters and such. Very easy to mix and use. Hardens to a white, chalky form. Find a good foundation, i.e. a stick. Mix plaster of paris in a bowl. Use white paper strips or newspaper to adhere to the stick. Let dry and bingo! Paint or mold to desired look.

Sound effects are key, too; we added two or three bone crunching sound effects to a scene in a horror film when a killer pushes down on a knife into her victim's chest. The entire audience in the theatre cried out when they heard that!

Another idea would be to contact your local fire department / emergency medical services folks and find out where they get the simulated injuries that are used to give realism to emergency response drills.
