For winter scenes, we can do anything from falling snow to large scale snow dressing.

Filmfx is the New Zealand agent for Snow Business International – the world leaders in artificial snow and winter simulation processes and products.

Snow dressing and in-camera winter effects can involve a large number of products. From biodegradable starch snow, foam snow dressings that can be washed away with water, through to feature film grade cellulose snow dressings, which can be walked through and mimic any snow environment.

Since some products can manage interaction with performers and others cannot, we can tailor our snow dressing solutions to fit your production requirements.

Falling snow is another popular winter effect and can involve snow machines that deliver small flakes of foam that look like snow and melt in a realistic timeframe. Other techniques involve biodegradable particle snow or snow sticks, which create an ethereal floating snow effect.

Get in touch with our team and we can advise what effect would be best for your production.

Some of our previous large snow projects include 30 Days of Night, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, and Krampus.
