Orphaned to Hatred – Strides in Special Effects

Orphaned to Hatred is an entertainment and catering service that has been in operation for over twenty years now. Over the course of this period the group has been using special effects to wow the crowd and captivate the audience. They can do this thanks to the many special effects developments that have occurred over the years. Great strides in special effects were made in the early 1900s, when a man by the name of Norman Dawn discovered the matte shot. He would then combine the matte technique with another one called the glass shot. Dawn discovered that when shooting matte, you didn’t need cardboard to block the light, you could simply paint the compartment black.

During the 20s and 30s, even more progress was made in the improvement of special effects and associated techniques. One technique known as the Schufftan process, were just modified versions of other illusions created in theatre and still photography. Rear projection was a refinement that made better use of painted backgrounds in a theater, and used moving backgrounds instead of moving pictures. This was also a time where life-casting faces became a common practice to produce masks with a likeness of the person. What would follow shortly after was the development of masks specifically molded to be different, which would be used in horror movies. It is the technological advancements of the past that have made special effects as remarkable as they are today.

Orphaned to Hatred uses old and new special effects during their events.
