Here’s a quick effect that will give your actor a goofy haircut and all you’ll need is a rubber band!
This effect can be setup in seconds and with some adjustment it looks realistic!
To create this effect, simply stretch the rubber band over your head and below your hairline. Be sure that the band is large enough to fit over your dome.
Position the band on your forehead and move it upward a few inches. Then, brush the hair back over the band.
That’s it! You now have a snazzy new do! (aka: the ‘dumb and dumber’ hairstyle)
The rubber band handling noise in this episode was added in post. I wrapped a rubber band around an empty water bottle and sprayed everything with water.
While wearing rubber gloves I moved the band and stretched it. The bottle helps amplify the sound and the water created more friction and rubber band noise.
In the video, the rubber band ‘boingy’ sound effect was created in post with a Jaw Harp.
