Film Production & Special Effects

Our film production facilities are regularly used by TV and film crews for filming their specialist projects. Our facility is licensed for section 5 firearms, enabling high quality filming of ballistics and explosive scenes. This is of particular use in the filming of World War One and World War Two documentaries.

These facilities also allow film special effects to be recorded on site, including:

  • Explosion scenes
  • Film smoke effects
  • Explosive testing
  • Explosion special effects

Below is a small selection of images of a recent BBC1 documentary filmed in the range - Dan Snow WW1 Uncut: Machine Guns. Click here for video footage.

"Dan takes a deep breath as he prepares to have an extremely close encounter with some of the deadliest weapons of the war in an attempt to understand how they were able to wreak such havoc."
