Flying beer by Kaduflyer Flying beer by Kaduflyer
Here's an oddity from my folio: In flight beer!!

For an episode of the TV series 'Keen Eddie' they wanted a Matrix style 'bullet time' shot of a bar room brawl. However, these type of shots normally require dozens of cameras and lots of time and money, things sorely lacking in TV productions! The answer?? Suspend tables and chairs on wires, get your actors to stand VERY still in mid punch etc and get some FX guy to make plastic, freeze frame beer!!

Using photos of real beer in flight I cut a shape from clear sheet plastic and shaped it by heating and bending it. I stuck this into a real beer glass and then built up the 'beer' with epoxy glue coloured with brown inks. Considering it's not the sort of thing I normally do (no boobies, monsters or blood!!...lol) I thought it turned out quite well.

For the same series I also made some over head rubber masks of Duran Duran (the group not the film character) used in an episode as disguises by some bank robbers!!

The series was an American show but for some reason was made in the UK...I've never actually seen it. If anyone here has I'd be interested to know how well this worked in the show!!

Aside from a few REALLY obscure local breweries, most of the big name beer here is shit.
Budweiser lowers your IQ by fifty points per can, and Pabst Blue Ribbon USED to be good until some corporate loons bought up the company and changed the formula. (and hipsters started drinking it.)

I've tried Budweiser and have to agree with you…(I've drunk tastier water). Don't know Pabst at all. Sounds like you need to get some proper English ale down you!!

One can of Pabst and you'll be wondering why there's a Prius in your garage and your pants drawer is full of skinny jeans.

Lol….I actually tried a pair of skinny jeans recently….but they feel really weird, kind of like a straight jacket for your legs (amongst other things)…so I passed and bought regular Levis…maybe I'm just to old to change!!!!??

Hmmm.. I'd not thought of it that way... I suppose I'd just defaulted to "I'd be there with a funnel and a hose."

I was just watching tv when a ad came on for a show and it had a clip of a guy throwing beer matrix-y style and at the end the title came on as keen eddie, i was like that rings a bell lol

It looked good from what i saw of it, it's coming to British tv 6th Feb on cbs drama so maybe you'll get a chance to see it if you haven't already. Here a link [link]

Any details about that show?

All I know is that it was some kind of cop show...it was a bit off the wall...was well received but didn't run for very long. It was shot in the UK but as far as I know only aired in the USA....and that's it I'm afraid!
