Smart air squib info

In early March 2022 I felt we had posted a fair amount of short clips on social media. Now, it was time for a longer, fact-filled production covering the air squib – for those contemplating purchasing a unit. I know, there are many questions – who uses it, what does the effect look like, how fast do you rig, who made the unit, etc. We got together for a day and did this production, aimed at you special effects technicians, make-up FX artists and people that plan tactical training scenarios. We wanted to give you a quick, fun and fact-filled video showing you what the safe air squib is all about.
