Pyrojunkies have used dot2 for a trade show in Birmingham. The event was an opportunity for Pyrojunkies to showcase Magic FX products in a live situation.
James Priddle, sales and project manager for Pyrojunkies, said they created a short but intense show to highlight what can be achieved with the equipment. Ambersphere Solutions became Priddle’s go-to for advice for special effects.
Technical sales for Ambersphere Thor-André said: “I spent a lot of time with James, looking at the various different options and how they could best work for him, and we eventually settled upon a dot2 Core.”
Priddle explains that they wanted to create a show that felt more like a concert. “We achieved this by using a large, high-definition screen, a crowd barrier and using a combination of special FX including CO2 jets, power jets, smoke jets and confetti pistols.”
“We encountered a few problems during the show, but we had spent a lot of time with Thor and the Ambersphere team making sure that the profiles for the effects were perfect, so we were able to solve any problems easily,” said Priddle.
“The support we had from Ambersphere cannot be faulted. Thor was always just a phone call away and was able to help me with the most trivial of issues.”
