**WARNING** Don’t try this at home, kids! We’re trained professionals performing in a secure environment. Any attemps to replicate this stunt could result in severe 3rd degree burns and loss of happiness… Don’t be a fool, follow the rule!
That being said, we had a blast! Not far away we did have a fire extinguisher and plenty of space to make sure everything was secure. But we didn’t just do this for fun. I needed some fire for a fire-eater in an upcoming Christmas card I am currently shooting. Of course, we didn’t have a professional fire-eater, so we faked one of our own. This picture will feature 10 different characters, all of which will be integrated to a decor I built myself! We’re finishing off today shooting the last character, then off to post-production for close-cutting and styling. Once we’ve got all our elements, I will be moving my station off to über communication’s office to work in collaboration with graphist Steph Dumais and art director Pascale Dufour to finish off the piece as we will be coloring the background and integrating 3D elements and lighting effects!.My first mix-media experience!
