Hurt Boxes are the brainchild creations of Emmy Nominated SFX artist, Brian Kinney. His amazing work can be seen often in blockbuster movies, such as “The Hunger Games – Mocking Jay”, and popular TV shows such as NCIS, Rizzoli & Isles, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Sons of Anarchy, and many more.
Special makeup effects artists have a growing necessity to be able to create ultra high definition quality small prosthetic appliances quickly on location, and without complicated molding and casting procedures. They also need the capability to make multiples of them at a time, and to be able to cast an appliance using a variety of different materials on hand. They also have the need to keep continuity in their makeup applications by reproducing the exact wound makeup scenario every day, or for a particular scene that requires multiple days at a time to shoot. Brian stepped up and filled these important needs with the creation of his Hurt Box system of platinum silicone “on-the-go” molds, that can be used with all the popular molding materials.
These trauma simulation palettes contain a variety of small wounds on a single silicone mold pad, and are medically correct to real life injuries. The Hurt Box - Trauma silicone mold has 11 different impressions that are sculpted to create a variety of realistic looking injuries, including: 1 fat lip, 1 broken nose, 1 gunshot entry wound, 1 swelling, 3 cuts, 1-2nd degree burn, 1-3rd degree burn, and 1 compound arm fracture that includes a pre-made ulna bone as a bonus. With this palette you can create a variety of scenarios that would call for these injuries, and be able to make as many as you need for an application. Once made, some can even be combined together to make different sizes or more complex looking injuries.
