Physical SFX Artem
Brief Provide all the physical special effects for the main hazard areas in the Robot Wars arena and the surrounding entrances, including fire, pyrotechnics, CO2 jets and flame jets.
How it was done During the recording of the live show Artem chief executive Mike Kelt and his team we were in control of the four main hazards: activating the pit, the flipper, the spikes and the flame grill.
This was done from a central control point overlooking the arena and located between the two opposing team control rooms in order to give them a good view of the battling robots.
The position was vital as it gave the operators a chance to quickly assess the action and make decisions about when to, and when not to, operate the different hazards.
