Silly String Suicide

It had been raining earlier in the afternoon, but about an hour before the shoot the weather cleared and it looked like it was going to be a fantastic day for an on-location outdoor shoot. When we loaded up the car and started heading out a light drizzle started, and within ten minutes it turned into a howling torrent. We opted to shoot inside an abandoned house but when the lighting started hitting all around us, and very big tree branches started cracking in half and falling nearby we decided to abandon the abandoned house and head for a safer location... but that meant coming up with a concept on the fly. This meant a trip to Wal-Mart was in order.

Not long after that we started the search for Silly String and Bubble Gum, both items were surprisingly difficult to locate but eventually we paid and were on our way back through the doomsday weather, which by now we had heard the airport had closed and a funnel cloud was spotted nearby. Yikes! But the shoot went on! And after seeing the results I'm sure glad it did!
