Here is my teaser video for my next Ultimate SFX library. This video was really a gas to make (No pun intended). I re-lived all those scorching hot moments standing within 4 feet of large fire bursts, massive slash piles burning and white hot embers while trying not to melt my microphone. Sometimes I smelled the smoke as I was editing the audio and video. Very strange brain tricks happening. Ahhh, I really love the smell of kerosene also! Not.
