Special Effects Exploding Paintballs!

So, a while back I was working for a guy who used to work in the film industry, and he found a couple of these little things. They explode and shoot sparks out in a ~4 foot radius, I'll see if I can get a video sometime.

You don't know how long I've been waiting for those. Tried draining the paint out of paintballs then filling them w/ snap-n-pop rocks and gun powder, but I never got any results. Do you know where you can buy 'em?

I know they are refered to in the flim industry as "squibs"! If you do a google search for movie squibs you get some interesting hits.

That was no fun! The first place I found was talking about these things can kill someone. That’s just what this industry does not need is someone getting killed with these things

Let your fingers do the walking and use a search engine to learn.
