Happened across this video on YouTube a few months back, but had forgotten about it until now: 'Ghost Girl in London' - and thought that I'd share it with the Forum.
Visually, I think, it's an impressive effect -- a static [actually, the video is larger than] life-sized humanoid figure, which appears to be composed only of swirling smoke. But it's one that I don't remember having seen used in anyone's haunts here on the Forum.
Think I know how they created the effect in general, though I may be wrong on some of the particulars. Most likely they used chicken wire or other very fine mesh for the body form, with perforated clear plastic tubing running up through the torso/head and arms too. The smoke/fog is then pumped up through this tubing, but from the video it seems clear that:
A) that they're using a fog machine that offers high-volume output, and
B) that they're not chilling the fog at all.
So I find myself wondering:
C) How could one chill such a volume of fog sufficiently to get a denser, more lingering effect around the static figure, and yet retain enough momentum to pump the fog all the way up through the form? I'd imagine that lightly misting the chicken wire with cold water immediately before turning on the fogger might help the fog to cling better?
D) Would it be possible to coat the chickenwire with either GITD or other blacklight reactive paint, and then have a glowing ghost wreathed in fog?
