As is often the case, Greg stumbled upon a good idea whilst in the pub with a mate. The mate was qualified Pyrotechnician Mike Sansom who runs BrightFire Pyro (and who Greg is doing his KABOOM! show with), the pub was, well that doesn’t matter…
Together, Greg & Mike worked up the idea, Greg knew of a fantastic filmmaker (Tristan Goodley) who loved the idea and was up for coming along and shooting it for no budget, and Tristan knew an absolutely awesome editor (Oli da Costa at Fraktiv) who was excited about the rushes and gave us a couple of days of his time to edit it.
The idea was THE 12 EXPLOSIONS OF CHRISTMAS – 12 bangs, booms and blasts, each with a festive twist.
As well as the main video itself Greg & Mike also shot 12 explanation videos that act as both a Making Of and a Science Of for each of the kabooms. Here’s a playlist of all explanation vids!
