    Good evening everyone. I finally got the chance to shoot my first little show this weekend. It was all ready to go back in March for my son's birthday, but it got a little delayed and was planned as a test show in preparation for BFN. The camera angle was a little low unfortunately (as I was using a GoPro with no screen) but I was really pleased with the outcome.

    Huge thanks to @Firework Crazy and @Trafalgar Fireworks for the product and some superb pieces from @Vivid Pyrotechnics, @Celtic Fireworks, Imperial Lotus and more.

    Perfect timings and at last I have seen some of those imperial lotus 30mm comet candles and their amazing timings plus lots of their other products so great choice of products:)

    Thanks :). Yes those IL 30mm candles are quality, they fire right on cue and the thud they produce is just awesome. I’m excited to try some more IL stuff on bfn.

    I thought they were Uran but without the go-getter effect but on second look I can see they are now. :oops:

    Yeah, the low camera angle probably didn't help, a little higher and you would have seen them wiz off a bit better. I though they just gave a splash of colour.

    Thanks, I was thinking of uploading the 4K close up ground view to YouTube too. My internet here is just very slow and takes like 2 hours to upload 1GB :( But I personally, weirdly, love just watching the close up ground view of them going off.

    What angle did you have for the cake boards ? I want to make some for this year. Loved the ground footage as well

    I honestly don’t know the angle, i just knocked them together with some plywood and timber to what looked right. I reckon its only 20ish degrees though, just enough to make it off centre and V-Shaped.

    worked well and so did your candle angles. Very good display
