Atmospheric Effects, Ice, Snow, Rain, Fog, Misting In Los Angeles Fill The Air With Fun

Atmospheric effects in Los Angeles include ice, snow, rain, fire, water, wind, smoke, haze, fog, and even bubbles or confetti that may be spewn from a machine. Pyrotechnics involve chemical reactions that produce heat, light, gas, smoke and/or sound. While atmospheric FX are usually relatively save, because of the safety issues involved with using combustible materials, pyrotechnicians are employed on the set for the safe storage and handling of these devices. Stunt personnel are also often involved in action sequences using certain atmospheric FX and pyrotechnic displays.
