Smoke bomb effect
« on: May 18, 2016, 04:53 pm »
A dance company I'm working with wants to use a smoke bomb effect for a soldier flashback dance. Anyone ever tried something like that before?

Maybe a fire extinguisher timed perfectly to the music as the "explosion" takes place?
This would obviously be an offstage effect...

Thanks for the creative idea; they've decided against the effect in favor of lighting.
