Here is the third companion video for my upcoming book,Â The Prop Effects Guidebook, coming this February. The book has a few photographs demonstrating the old “shoot an arrow into the wall” trick, but this video goes into more detail and shows the trick in action.
This is a great trick forÂ Deathtrap depending on how you stage it. I have also used this trick inÂ Wait Until Dark, though that is a knife-throwing gag.
These companion videos will continue to be released as we draw closer to the bookâ€™s release. You canÂ watch all of them on YouTube.
The Prop Effects GuidebookÂ is available for pre-order now at most major retailers. If you need a Christmas gift for that special props person, be sure to check out my first book,Â The Prop Building Guidebook: for Theatre, Film, and TV.
