Manufacturer and distributor of Nick Dudman’s theatrical blood
Pigs Might Fly blood is regularly seen on the stage and screen; from blockbuster movies, to major TV series, from London’s West End to Broadway and beyond. In fact, it is used worldwide by some of the Industry’s biggest names and used on some of the world’s most famous actors.
Nick Dudman’s 40 years experience in the film industry
The professional career of Nick Dudman has spanned four decades, from his initiation into the ingenious design and production of early make-up effects for Lucasfilm’s ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ to his collaborative leadership at the helm of many of today’s best creature effects’ crews.
“I have had the pleasure of knowing Nick for well over 30 years, working on movies such as Willow and The Fifth Element. Nick is a legend of the Industry and he keeps pushing the boundaries of Make-up effects and Animatronic effects. I am also a huge fan of the Pigs Might Fly blood and whenever I work on a movie that requires fake blood Pigs Might Fly South is the Company I call. Nick supplied the blood for me on Saving Private Ryan, Gladiator and Black Hawk Down, to name but a few. Pigs Might Fly have always been very helpful with any special requests that I have asked them for, as in colours and consistency, and have shipped to me all over the world.”
Neil Corbould, Oscar and BAFTA winning special effects supervisor,
“For years I’ve always asked my friend Nick Dudman to send me some of his excellent blood to have on a production. Once it expanded into Pigs Might Fly South, my requests have grown in scope and complexity. I can only hope those darn Pigs keep flying south for a very long time because that blood is a very necessary part of my kit”
Bill Corso, Oscar and Emmy Winning Makeup Artist,
“I have used Nick Dudman blood for many years, and it has always been exactly what I needed for my effects. Pigs Might Fly South are great to deal with and they always make sure the blood arrives quickly, wherever I am working in the world.”
Pau Costa Moeller, Emmy & BAFTA nominated special effects supervisor,
“Blood was a major element in our production of The Duchess of Malfi. Anthony Davies (PMFS Managing Director) was both collaborative and generous with his time and advice in ensuring we had the correct type and mix of blood to be able to pump up to 80 litres onto the stage during each performance. The end result looked terrific”
Simon Ash, Senior Production Manager,Royal Shakespeare Company
“I have been using PMF blood for nearly 20 years, it’s the only fake blood I use in the business. The consistency and colours make this the most realistic blood on the market without any staining to skin. You can always guarantee that it washes out of costumes and fabrics. I’m looking forward to trying PMFS new products very soon”
Marcus Whitney, Makeup Designer for Film & TV,
"We order our blood on a regular basis and it is of a tremendous quality. Sometimes we need a custom mix which Anthony is happy to supply. We wouldn’t shop anywhere else.
The customer service received is second to none. Anthony is quick to respond to emails and the website is easy to navigate around. I would highly recommend Pigs Might Fly South and if asked, would give it 5 stars."
