Mechanical Effects

Mechanical effects (also called practical or physical effects), are usually accomplished during the live-action shooting. This includes the use of mechanized props, scenery, scale models, pyrotechnics and Atmospheric Effects: creating physical wind, rain, fog, snow, clouds etc. Making a car appear to drive by itself, or blowing up a building are examples of mechanical effects.

From simple breakaway props to lavish and complicated robotics our design team consistently amaze and surprise audiences around the World using a variety of pneumatic, hydraulic, electrical and electronic hardware to create fantastic and breathtaking effects.

No one effect is the same as the next and so each bespoke design and installation is unique to each of our clients.

From falling rocks to swaying trees, from giant projection screens to hyper fast show controlled doors and from lightening strikes to earthquakes; we have both the knowledge and the experience to design that extra special effect for your next production.
