Anybody else notice how the water detonations made the ground ring like a bell? (Well we were fairly close I suppose...). None of the other pyros did that!

Great stuff all round - shame about the Vulcan as I was looking forward to that!

They would if we buried them Dave - but to speed up our set up and eliminate the danger of "fly" - we don't........ But the physics of the water spouts is such fun that when Steve said he wanted them we jumped at the chance...... They do give a satisfying THUMP through the ground don't they?

The first teaser of what we can expect from Sinvision

I'd definitely get a copy ordered if this is a sample of what's to come........ Mine's already on order.

Dunno but I bet someone's daft enough to do it....... without a Risk Assessment too I bet.
and before any smart Alec comments
Quote:
In section 5(1) of the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries Act 1975 (prohibition on use of explosives, etc. to take or destroy fish) for the words “and within the exclusive fishery limits of the British Islands" substitute the words “to a distance of six nautical miles measured from the baselines from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured".


Any water that contains fish - you can't use bangs...... Which was why we had our ponds dug special like!

The whole thing is looking fantastic - It's 2.5 hours long - Covers the ENTIRE show and I'm waiting for my advance review copy to arrive as I type.........

Our crew doesn't usually allow full access to what we do but for this project we were happy to be of assistance........ I think they had 8 cameras covering the battles and they were in the vehicles. in the action and in static positions........ There are interviews, aircraft, dioramas and loads of aspects of the show covered........ I'll do a write up in the media section when I've watched it........

Several weapons incidents made my teeth curl KK - And that use of a .30 simply as a noise maker was - well - par for the course........
