Man shoots a gun


Man getting hit and shooting

So, you are a FX, filmmaker or a working mechanical special effects technician and you want to add action to your production. You know you quickly need to start heaps of planning; ordering explosive squibs, planning transport, storing, a stand-by nurse, set up blood bags, talk to wardrobe about spare shirts and more. 

Let’s face it, preparing an explosive squib is expensive and frustrating at best. I know from my own experience as I have been a special effects technician for almost 40 years and rigged thousands of simulated bullet hits.

You probably know that nothing beats that appalause from the movie crew for a well executed shootout scene, or the reactions of he audience in the movie theatre, but there is a lot of planning behind a sucessfully and safely executed hit, retakes, spare clothes – and safety.

How would you feel if there was a tool that would make your life much easier? Something that is really safe, silent and allows you to travel anywhere at a moments notice. And would still look real?

With this unit, you can shoot in rural areas at nighttime, and you won’t scare kids, animals or neigbors. If producers didn’t already love you, now your chances have greatly improved!

From one FX-guy to another, let me tell you more on the Air Squib instead. It is a specialized piece of radio controlled FX-equipment that allows you to simply and safely “shoot” actors in action sequences on film, or on stage. Retakes are fast and easy to rig too! And you don’t even make holes in the garments! The Air Squib allows you to focus of the tricky stuff instead. You know: the servo-powered animals, the big explosions or the gadgets for the heros to handle. The mechanical cigar, drop-boxes and air cannons. Or maybe even more time with friends and family instead! In short – the Air Squib will simplify your life taking strain of shooting people! As an FX technician with safety as a primary concern – I think you are worth it!


The air squib works nice and safe.
Is also easy to rig in a short time and re-set.

Myself, I am a professional special effects technician and I have worked on effects for all types of projects: Sometimes big hollywood movies like The Abyss, Poltergeist 2, Big trouble in Little China, Friday the 13th. And in some cases small weddings with exploding confetti bombs over the kissing newlyweds. And sometimes flame throwers for an opera on stage. 

But is was during the production of UHF with ”Weird Al” assisting in the rigging of hundreds of exploding squibs that got this process rolling,  I felt there had to be a safer way of rigging bullet hits as in the parodic “Ghandi II”-scene, we brought in dozens of stunt people to enormous cost. I felt there just HAD to be a safer way to create bullet hits without dangerous exploding squibs, metal protection, eyeglasses, earplugs and even a standby nurse…

After many calls from people wanting to recreate bullet hits, but found it was prohibitly expensive to fly me out on location for a stage show or indie production that I really knew something had to be done. After 20 years of experimenting, making nozzles, testing pressure, minimizing tanks and maximizing flow , I was done. Now, the industry had a  professional solution safe, quick and easy enough for a complete “newbie” to use it with great results. 

Special Effects Academy nominee “Thaine Morris” really liked it too. And he should know as he has manufactured exploding squibs for decades!  I was overjoyed with his approval, and he was my first reseller!  But, don’t take my word for it. Listen to what other professionals have to say on the video to the right and decide if this is something for you too.
