Thanks to the technological advancements in visual effects the previous risks imposed by practical “on set effects” have been eliminated. Producers now have a safe alternate solution. Production Safety has been forced to evolve due to the changing regulatory environment. Specific examples are: airborne lead standards are being lowered that impact the use of lead containing squibs and make many older film locations unusable. Regulators and unions mandate air monitoring when using artificial smoke and fog products. The use of such chemicals have become more expensive and fog levels need to be reduced. Regulators now serve fines to productions not using proper personal protection equipment.
There are also improvements in virtual set technology. Our services also allow exotic locations and sets to be volumetrically captured and reproduced into a 3 dimensional virtual set. Filmmakers can bring their story world onto any stage and work in a controlled safe environment.
