USITT Forum@Four: 40 Yards of Blood

Too many times we hear horror stories about people getting injured needlessly. Or effects just not working the way they should. In this program, Jay Duckworth will talk about blood recipes, blood packs, and delivery systems. We will also cover basics for small blades & blood knife safety. It will be followed up with a Q & A. Presented by the Education Commission.
