Artem was approached by The Gate Films to work on the new TV ad for Injury Lawyers 4 U. Part of their idea was to propel a wave of tennis balls out of the back of a truck and all over the street.

Our special effects technicians rigged the truck so the doors could be flung open on cue using gas powered struts, a pyrotechnical cable release, and a series of shelves and ramps to hold the balls against the closed mesh doors.  

In addition, we rigged a bicycle so it could be reliably crashed into a group of tables by creating a stabilised bike with fixed steering. The stabiliser meant it could run at any speed and the fixed steering meant it could be aimed with an accuracy of 30cm over 5 meters.

With the rain, cold and travelling to Liverpool, it was a hard day’s work. However, the crew were still in good spirits and managed to get the job completed in daylight with everyone pleased with the end result.
