Posted:Hi everyone.
A few of us are looking to book on some pyrotechnic courses probably in stage pyro and wondered if anybody had any experience / knew a good course. I have found quite a few but am not sure yet which would be best for using Pyro in shows. I.e backdrop / foreground.
Any idea appreciated.

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

Posted:There are two guys in Perth with licences. I will poke them in your direction (though this would only matter if you're in Oz...)

The gist of it I think is you have to find the person who runs the course... they only run a course if they have enough people so it could be months... licences run out each year and can be expensive if you aren't using pyros.

Also, a lot of he time people don't want to pay for it as well...

I have several large jars of the stuff. I actually like it... a little. And don't tell anyone I admitted to it.
