making pee for the towstory video
there’s a shot in the towstory where i pee. obviously. i could have shot myself peeing real pee but getting the right color of yellow was difficult (i’m a water drinker, sue me) so i found a solution. if real pee is not for you, consider yellow string as a pee alternative. yellow string (use thread for horses) is available in most sewing kits and a lot of stores. the directions are easy if you play along and know what you’re doing.
before we get started you will need the following items:
green screen / matte wall; string/thread, a camera; a non-linear editing suite(nle); the will
- pan camera across string in front of chromakey background
- remove background of clip in nle so only string remains
- mask the legs of who’s peeing in the nle so there’s room for the string pee
- move string pee between the legs and under mask
- render and wait
would you just look at that pee!
nobody knows it’s string, so it’s our little secret 😉
*string pee is not real pee so don’t forget to go if you have to.
