HISTORICAL & MILITARY CONSULTING, AND RENTAL SERVICE COMPANY
Extremely advanced technology has now fully pervaded the film industry. So most modern movies use CGI technology to fulfill much of its explosion-related needs. However, this sometimes fails to give the desired realistic result that an actual (practical) explosion can deliver. Hence, when using any practical form of
pyrotechnics many factors, issues and questions must be taken
into consideration. But, are not limited to the following:
Using an untrained amateur or novice, is not only extremely
dangerous to everyone on set, but it can place you and your production into serious financial and/or legal/criminal liability (should any property become damaged or someone is hurt or seriously injured). Don't take chances ...Contact us!

Pyrotechnics have long been an important and thrilling special effects tool in the film industry. Any fire-related effect seen in the movies falls under pyrotechnics. From action packed blockbusters, to the most docile of film or TV show, each involve special effects and pyrotechnics. Birthday cake candles, a tiny camp fire, or even the atmospheric haze of a smokey night club, these are all special effects or pyrotechnic effects. Planning any production, that will use these effects, requires a very heightened awareness of the safety elements involved, and all the potential hazards. The pyro-technician is responsible for designing and orchestrating all the explosions and/or special effects you see on the screen.
If a script calls for a explosion and the producer knows the pyrotechnics will be created on-set, they are required to hire a pyrotechnician (someone who is trained and educated in the science of explosions and fire). In many states, in order for someone to be qualified as a pyrotechnician, they must complete specific secondary education and sub-specialized courses in addition to training certifications. They also must pass a specific exam and obtain a license, which must then be renewed every one to three years. Therefore, a film company should NEVER use an unqualified pyrotechnician! You just can't afford to take risks with anyone's safety!
