Looking for advice.

I am in a big studio (20m x 20m x 10m) and need to haze it up quickly.

Am I going overboard with 3 medium cracked oil hazers?

thanks

I would have thought so. One should do it if all the doors are closed and the AC is off.

It will take a little while to get there (20 mins ?) but it should be easily sustained by one unit.

Of course if you need it to go from clear to haze quickly then 3 would work faster than that I guess....

On a tangent I recently used a unit called a fazer hazer. This unit doubles as a full burst smoke machine and programable hazer. Definitely worth having a look for one around your local theatre/stage production rental places.

I have the MDG fogger and it kicks a*** for filling a space quickly, the haze hangs super long too. Check out MDG foggers and hazers.

Check the MSds sheets on the cracked oil foggers for exposure levels.

Well we ordered three. Only two worked but it was fine. With no wind it creates a really nice lace mist effect. Like spindles in the air.

Here is a shot from the shoot

What type did you go with?


We're about to shoot an interior scene in a relatively small apartment. I'm
wondering what will give us the most consistent light haze the whole day?
Basically we don't have the time to eat up with fanning out smoke and
waiting for it to settle. Can anyone recommend a good place to rent
this in LA?

Thanks,
Chris
