When it comes to silicone tubing, we’ve heard it all when it comes to application. Or at least we thought we had, before Animated Extras came to Hilltop!
Their CV is certainly impressive, featuring all manner of film and television work. Many of which you’ve probably seen yourself, from the Wonga TV adverts Earl, Joyce and Betty puppets, an animatronic lion for Game of Thrones and even principal prosthetics on the 2012 film, Cloud Atlas, starring Tom Hanks and Halle Berry.
For their latest project they needed something to pump fake blood on various prosthetics and fake dead bodies. Silicone tubing seemed to be just the thing, providing the flexibility and sizings required for the job. Silicone tubing is very commonly used for the purpose of fluid transfer, but this is the first time we’ve heard of it being used to pump fake blood before!
It’s certainly interesting to know where our products end up and we’re happy to know our products have made it onto yet another television project, and better yet to know they will be directly involved in shooting process. Here’s hoping the filming goes well for all involved!
