Spent the last two days making and playing with smoke bombs. The film opens with a huge explosion (which will be CG) and the survivors come running out of the smoke. Contrary to what people think I do prefer doing things practically when possible. I got on YouTube and found some great smoke bomb instructions and have been trying them out. The biggest issues I can see is that this scene takes place in the mountains, and the smoke bombs produce a lot of fire. I’ll need a way to shield the ground from all the flames. On the plus side, I spent just under 8 dollars on some supplies from the local hardware and grocery stores and that provides enough stuff to make four smoke bombs. At that kind of price, I can’t complain.
