Light my fire

When TV shows work with fire on­screen, they want to make sure that ev­ery­thing’s per­fect – and safe!

“Safety, safety, safety,” Joburg-based free­lance py­rotech­ni­cian Jim Souza em­pha­sises. If you don’t get the safety part right, you could end up not only burn­ing down the set, but also en­dan­ger­ing the lives of those work­ing on it. Sounds scary, but here’s how TV shows do it – safely! the amount of smoke made, who will be most at risk, safety mea­sures in place should some­thing go wrong and a full break­down of emer­gency pro­ce­dures.

A lot of plan­ning, care and prepa­ra­tion goes into film­ing a fire scene, es­pe­cially when it comes to keep­ing ev­ery­one safe.
