Hey there Pyros, you are in for a treat! You have probably heard about the awesome work being done by the Veverka Brothers on an epic project: Passfire. Jesse Veverka, Producer of the Passfire movie has put together an inside look for you about our EXCLUSIVE line of Passfire merchandise! Pyro Novelties is a proud supporter of Passfire and the Veverka Bros Productions. We hope you enjoy this behind the scenes glance as much as we did!
Passfire and the Story of the Five Elements of the Fireworker
by Jesse Veverka
The talent of the artist, the hand of the sculptor, the heart of the poet, the eye of the painter and the courage of the warrior – those five qualities elegantly describe what it takes to be a pyrotechnician and they form the core theme of Pyro Novelties’ exclusive line of Passfire branded merchandise.
Passfire is the upcoming documentary about the world’s most amazing fireworks, the people who make them and the cultures behind them. Slated for release later this summer, the film has been in production for three years and has covered fireworks in 23 countries on six continents.
When the Passfire crew was filming in India, they interviewed a local fireworker who explained these qualities in his own language, and a tribute to him can be found on Pyro Novelties’ “Pyrotechnician” line of Passfire shirts. These five qualities can also be found on the Passfire “Five Elements” line of shirts and hoodies, which feature a graphical design with a Vitruvian-inspired Green Man on a pyrotechnics wheel.
Who is the Green Man? The Green Man is a custom that goes back about 500 years in England, when men would cover themselves in fresh green leaves to protect themselves from sparks while holding fountains during fireworks processions. To this day fireworkers around the world tell each other to “stay green” meaning to “stay safe.” Here’s an interesting piece of Passfire trivia: the Five Elements shirt was designed by graphic artist Michael Weber and by odd coincidence Michael is the great-nephew of Tom Dimock, one of the most respected builders of fireworks wheels and girandolas living in the US today. They do say that the fireworks bug tends to run in the family.
The Passfire documentary won’t be released until later this year, but in the meantime you can keep up-to-date with the production by visiting Passfire’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Passfire) or website (www.passfire.com).
A portion of all proceeds from the Passfire merchandise that Pyro Novelties sells goes directly to completing the production of the documentary, and during the month of March you can enjoy special savings on Passfire shirts and hoodies. But hurry, quantities are limited.
Check it out Pyros! We launched our online store with a fresh new look! We wanted to give it a fabulous new design to match the new website we launched earlier this year. What do you think? The store has a bright and bold, yet clean design to make our products pop. Our goal was to create an easier, more enjoyable shopping experience for you; for example, you can now shop multiple designs of products (i.e. wave banner flags) on one page. This has been and will continue to be a year ablaze with changes. There are more thrilling things to come! We gave you a hint in our last post, but I’ll give you another… it involves our fantastic vinyl banners and some other favorites. The 2015 line of products and Wholesale catalog will be revealed in the weeks to come. We are revving up for a spectacular season! We couldn’t do it without your continued support! Give us a shout to let us know what you think of the new store, or if you experience any difficulties. Check back soon for more news!
Burr! How about this weather, eh? It has been a whirlwind of a winter—not just the inconsistent temps, but also how busy we have been preparing for an exciting new season! The long days and late nights are all for your benefit. Our exclusive new stock products are finally in production and will be filling our warehouse shelves come late March/ early April. The smoke hasn’t cleared yet though! We are getting ready to launch TWO new online stores: a makeover of our retail store and (drum roll) for the first time ever, a brand new Wholesale shopping experience! In our constant efforts to make shopping ever more convenient for you we will have a store dedicated to our beloved wholesale customers. Don’t fret if you prefer to order by phone/fax, our 2015 Wholesale Catalog will be hitting mailboxes (and our website) mid-March. Hang in there a bit longer; spring isn’t too far off… We are ready to get fired up with you this season!
Hey Pyro Novelties customers, welcome to our new website! We recently teamed up with IDP to bring you a more user friendly shopping experience. We’ve made it more straightforward to navigate between our stock products (in our online store) and the wide variety of custom products we offer. Take a look around our new menus, see our featured products, check out our promotional products pages and visit our retail store. We still have some gaps and will be adding content as we build the site, especially where it comes to our great new stock products for 2015. We hope it makes searching for what you need a little easier!
