The latest episode of How To Do Everything With Garrick And Marvin is up on Dreamworks TV.  "How To Kiss" this episode I wanted to actually try and blow up the machine that malfunctions.  The Kissing Machine itself is a bizarre invention, mostly designed to punish the user.

Black powder was what I used to make the big flash, It was just in an open pile not enclosed in any way.  I protected the camera with a sheet of plexiglass to deflect and hot embers from the camera lens.   Shooting at a frame rate of 60 FPS then slowing it down to quarter speed in post still wasn't quite slow enough to capture the full essence of the blast.

We had some B-Roll recording for the explosion, definitely the fun part of doing animation.
