Real or Not??

Postby commando » Wed Sep 30, 2015 1:02 pm

The Signal Flares used to communicate with gastown etc, that go up and explode into yellow and red....

Are they real in any way? If so, where/can you buy them?

I've searched the forum and google, only thing that comes up is the flare gun. It would be great for this to not be entirely SFX ... 9_81_s.jpg

In real life? Yes those exist:

In the movie?

I think they're CG'ed, the explosion patterns of red flares are identical in the image you posted.

Certainly CG'd. You wouldn't want an aerial camera and crew flying in an area you're sending up airborne explosives.

Definitely totally CGI, they're not the same between the first trailer and the actual movie.

Those are daytime fireworks. Instead of using different burning metals to generate color they use colored chalk powder.

There was a recent show in Dubai, I believe by an artist who works in this particular medium. He's able to paint pictures in the sky using precision timing of the lift charges and bursts.
