I’ve Googled and otherwise searched, but had no luck in finding the information I need for something I’m thinking of writing. I’m hoping all you wonderful people out there can help me instead. (Apologies if this should be in Cafe Society, but I figured that the subject didn’t quite fit there.)
I need to know the minimum amount of equipment needed to make a realistic-looking shooting, with special effects, for a live audience (meaning no sounds can be added in post-production). The source of the shots will be hidden, but the victim needs to be exposed, and the audience (not many people, and several feet away with a curtain of rain in between, but still with a reasonably good view, just not right on top of things) needs to be left with the assumption that a shooting has actually taken place. I’m assuming that the stager has access to whatever equipment is required, of course.
Thanks for any help you can give!
