Explosions /Pyrotechnic Effects

Pyrotechnics can be the most exciting type of special effect and also the most dangerous. Our specialists can deliver you the safest and most impressive pyrotechnics in no time. We will also ensure that the proper safety measures are taken on your set to ensure everyone's safety.

Atmospheric Effects

Wind, snow, rain, smoke, fog and lightening can all be achieved at any time of the year by using atmospheric special effects. We have thousands of square feet filled with special atmospheric equipment ready for use on your next project.

Prosthetics

Our artists specialize in lifelike prosthetic creations that continue to impress actors and film crews alike. We use the safest materials and the latest technologies to ensure that our effects look as realistic as possible.

Bullet Hits and Gunfire

If you are looking to fake a gun fight then you have come to the right place. Between our special silent firing guns, our pyro technicians, and our weapons training facility, we can not only supply you with the gun, the gun fire, and the bullet holes but we can teach your actors how to fire them as well. Please also ask us about our Det-Less Bullet Hit System and Non Guns which are easy inexpensive alternatives to blanks and pyrotechnics.
