Our number one goal when building our squib fx rigs is to create a safe situation for the actors and performers wearing the system, and for the cast and crew that may be working in close proximity. Using explosives to create the illusion of a bullet hit on screen and on stage is very dangerous has been the standard for nearly a century!
Well we say- No Longer!
There is a safe alternative to the dangerous squibs of our special effects forefathers. Our rigs are super easy to use and very reliable. They have never knocked an actor unconscious or blinded them or deafened them, although the noise that a couple of the rigs make when firing (which has been described to me as that of a dying goose) has made a few actors giggle.
Using air to fire blood and dust is about a million times safer than explosive bullet hits and are much more affordable. You can buy one of our rigs for less than you would spend on a single day rate for a pyrotechnician. And you can rent one for less than the cost of a roll of lighting gel.
