    Update:

    Now its only going to bleed down the US wall, still 10 minutes worth.
    They're discussing blood brand. cost/gallon vs shipping charges, you know the drill. As for wall finish, we've got about three clear coats on it now. Scenic charge did a 'blood' sample with red paint and was able to wash it off after letting it sit for 25 minutes. We figured paint was going to be worse than any blood product, given that its designed to stick to walls, so I think we're in the clear as long as they start cleaning immediately after the curtain drops

    Installed! No video yet, waiting for blood to be delivered. Maybe tomorrow. Blood effect ended up being a 30 gallon trash can with a sump pump in it. Plastic irrigation hose with the stab in side emitters every 12". We'll see how it goes...

    I dunno about the rest of you, but I'm ridiculously excited to see how this turns out. That set looks fantastic! Those stairs look amazing, like they've been there forever.

    Alright, no video, but the system was finally tested with water. Minor adjustment issues to get the water ONTO the wall, instead of dripping straight down about an inch away from the wall. Irrigation hose with the stab in emitters wasn't the way to go (leaks around the puncture in the hose. It was to be expected i guess), but for this application its ok. I'm not going to get to see it run with blood until after opening. I might try to sneak my phone up during the show if I'm sitting in the back....
