FPL Special Effects

SPFX Live and for Film

Silmido movie special effects (Queenstown)Firework Professionals Ltd has a long history in the special effects industry. Beginning in Anthony’s university days, we’ve been designing and creating effects since the 1970s.

At FPL we design, develop and produce custom effects in house at our Christchurch head office. These effects include bullet hits, shell bursts, fireballs, AA air bursts, rocket trails and much more. We can conjure and create SPFX to match your brief for any film, TV or live project.

In addition to manufacturing custom pyrotechnic solutions we stock quality special effects from major overseas suppliers for the film  industry. Furthermore, we offer comprehensive training in special effects and battle simulation effects. Our courses can be tailored specifically for your industry application, so you get the training especially relevant to your work.
