Fume Flaming Hoop from Hugh Johnson on Vimeo.

I used this test to refine the quality of the fire I was getting with fume.

As reference I used video I took on holiday in Thailand.  Every night this crazy family would perform an impressive fire show at one of the beach bars, one of the stunts was to jump through a hoop of fire which I got on film – it proved to be great ref for me to get the movement, speed and scale right for flames of this type.

Amazingly this fire show featured lots of audience participation! Which struck me as a bad idea…. drunk people….hoops of fire…. 30 miles down a dusty track to the nearest hospital – not good!
