Rain SFX.

Rain Special Effects.

Welcome to rain special effects, a microsite about rain effects for film and tv and creating realistic rainstorms, light showers, drizzle, misty atmospheres, monsoon deluges, torrents and floods. Rain effects equipment can create a rainy environment… or provide continuity for scenes started in real rain that has stopped! The rain machine systems we use include traditional but versatile rain stands (monsoon and our regular styles) and an overhead crane rain bar, all of which can create rain effects from drizzle to a torrential downpour.

Stands have interchangeable rain heads, and we can hoist overhead rain bars above the action with a crane. Rain bar interchangeable heads include traditional static ‘birds mouths’ and spinning Akron rain heads. We use triple spinners and 2 inch spinning Akron rain heads, which with 4 bowsers on location supply enough water to create torrents of rain water running down a street!
