Media & Special Effects
Fireworks are often used in the media, and Phoenix have been involved in a number of occasions.
X-Factor had displays to welcome some of their contestants to their home town, including Olly Murs’ home-coming to Essex after he left X-Factor. The Junior Apprentice had a display to treat the contestants after a challenge.
Not only do Phoenix get involved in reality TV but also in old favourites, such as Top Gear, seen on their latest DVD “Apocalypse”, where Phoenix simulated what would happen if a car was to run over a box of fireworks!
Included in Phoenix’s television appearances is the Sony Bravia TV Advert where paint was fired off buildings. This was fired using the same firing system used for electronic displays.
Phoenix have done a display that was photographed and put into ‘Tatler’, the longstanding magazine, as part of their 300th birthday celebrations. The display also involved lancework of the logo and was put on the front cover.
In 2011, Phoenix were contracted to do a special effects display at Glastonbury in a field and stage, simulating a human cannon ball.
