The Body Hole
What does it look like?
This shot takes the camera and aims it through a wound on the human body, usually a big one, and reveals the other side. The other side could be the shooter, a zombie, or a group of horrified onlookers.
How’s it done?
This is mostly done as a CGI shot, but can also be done using practical makeup FX on set.
When should I use it?
This shot is best used to reveal the attacker or the object that created the hole. When the hole appears, there is usually a “rack focus” to resolve the shot to the background.
