  • Pyrotechnics are NOT permitted in student productions.

  • Consider that the illusion of fire can be created with a lighting effect.

  • Candles and fireplaces require underwriter approval.

  • Filming requires control. Fireplaces and campfires are usually fed by propane tanks which enable complete shut down between takes as well as regulation of flame height during the shot. With the appropriate underwriting approval, fire pans and flame bars can be rented at special effects houses. If you have not been trained in the safe use of such devices you may not use them. It is required to have a qualified professional and/or Fire Marshal present to operate them.
