I was introduced to one of the flame effects designers of the Festa del Fuoco di Stromboli through the Crucible. This is a yearly fire arts festival held on an Europe’s most active volcano! Nicholas and I talked shop a bit and now he’s shown me some videos and stills of the festival. They gave me a big smile!
Me being a fire and machine nerd, I liked watching the clock (it really works!) in the background starting at 2:20. And the flaming stars work nicely!
