Equipment Rentals and Expendable Sales

Gear and products to make your project great


Special Effects covers a broad array of productions’ needs. There’s pyrotechnic mortars and trays, propane poppers and fire-bars, hydraulic motors and pistons, pneumatic rams and slides, gears and pinions, air bags and lifters, air mortars and movers, fans and blowers, heaters and pumps, rain towers and bars, snow blowers and rollers, foggers and hazers, wireless and wired control systems and a thousand other specialty pieces of gear that make it work.

With all that to do, it’s not common for the team on any given production to already own all the various things needed to make the dream reality. To that end, we’re happy help out by making our equipment and materials stocks available to coordinators and productions throughout the southeast to make movie making better and safer for all of us.
