INSTANTLY LIGHTING OVER 10 KILOS OF EPIC FIREWORKS
Regular readers of our blog may remember an article from October of last year, in which we shared an ambitious mass-firing of our renowned Moving Target barrage by firework enthusiast and YouTuber Dusky Fuse. In his YouTube video, Dusky Fuse celebrates reaching 300 subscribers by lighting 10 of our much-loved Moving Target fireworks simultaneously and, quite simply, the result was breathtaking.
Fast-forward almost 12 months and Craig has now surpassed 500 subscribers and was very keen to film another mass-firing only this time the spectacle had to be even more spectacular!
Speaking to Craig, he said, "My previous 300 subscriber special received a fantastic response from viewers and I had promised them that once my subscribers hit the 500 milestone, I would not only treat them to another firework experiment, but I would also strive to better the previous celebration. As the original video displayed such fantastic results, this was not going to be easy, and therefore I decided that I would have to go bigger. Moving Target is a beautiful firework, but is both 1.4g and has a relatively small tube size. Ambitiously I began to think about using more powerful 1.3g fireworks and then decided that if I was going to create the best display imaginable then maximum sized 30mm tubes would give the very best results. After looking through Epic's huge library of barrages, I set my heart on Napalm, which looked extremely punchy and gave professional looking single effects. Like my previous video, I would again ignite these fireworks from a steel arch and this would allow me to light 18 of the cakes simultaneously. I think most would have stopped there, but the idea of creating a multi-layered performance played on my mind, and so I hatched a plan to also fire 24 Sky Lab mine cakes simultaneously. This worked very well and gave the exact effect I had pictured in my mind. Once electronically firing the arch of fireworks, the results were out of this world. Viewers were literally left speechless and the raw-power seen before us was both overwhelming and immense. After hours of planning, the incredible results made the process more than worthwhile, and now I only fear how I'll trump such a mighty display in the future."
