Special Effects

Event Horizon provides a range of stunning special effects for film, TV and public events. We are fully licensed to use all explosive materials and types and all our staff are trained in their safe use. We can create anything from massive explosions on the battlefield, to intimate bullet hits on actors bodies, vehicle pyrotechnics to simulated building demolitions. Whatever your need, we can supply a low cost, high impact solution in total safety.
Our experience within the film industry has led us to create fantastic 'real for real' effects for both movie and stills use. We can design effects for specific tasks, or for use in post-production stock libraries. Each effect is planned with the maximum input of the production team, ensuring the end result is as dramatic and realistic as possible. We are a BBC approved supplier. Our experience of the entertainment industry has enabled us to produce thrilling live effects with pinpoint timing for public events such as air shows and battle re-enactments.
