Actually, if I remember correctly, the blood was left on the lens and slowly when the sections the blood was on would blend with the background, it would get painted out from then on. There is a point when hes going up the stairs or around that portion where all of the blood is gone. I also distinctly remember them saying they "paid big bucks to have it digitally removed"
I am looking for a video that I saw once where they break down how the ending battle scene was accomplished in "Children Of Men" In the short doc they talk about why the decided to leave the "blood on the lens" and how they combined 2 different takes to make it seem like one long hand held shot. Is there anyone out there that has seen this and remembers where I can get it?

That's what I remember.

but they paid someone to paint out the blood frame by frame for the rest of the shot.
And didn't that shot go on for another full minute or so? Damn that must have been painstaking.
