Testing out some FX and Acting

In preparation for a short film I'm writing, I decided to mess around in After Effects with a few special effects that I'll be using, and at the same time test out gunplay acting.  The purpose of this is to simply test out my reaction to simulated gunfire, and nail the acting it takes to simulate the recoil.  As you'll see, my acting still needs work.  This is only the beginning!  I was both characters in this test.
