Special Effects & Explosives

The Orlando Film Commission will do everything in its power to streamline your production, but regulations do exist. Special effects coordinators who plan to use explosives or fireworks, such as squibs, black powder charges and air mortars, must satisfy several requirements:
  • The permit requires a detailed explanation of the explosion and what substances are needed for the effect.
  • Special effects explosions, whether audible or visible, large or small, must be carried out by a certified special effects technician. A certificate must be attached to the permit.
  • A certificate of insurance naming the city or county additionally insured for $5 million must accompany the permit.
