A car dri­ves through a wall, a fist frac­tures a board, some­one rips a seem­ing­ly mas­sive chain, objects are torn up in close-up by an explo­sion or the clas­sic glas bot­tle is shat­tered on someone’s head.…
In order to be able to shoot such scenes dur­ing a pro­duc­tion with­out to much dan­ger for actors and equip­ment, we use so-called breakaways.

These are copied or mod­i­fied props, parts of sets or even com­plete sets that are only built so one can destroy them rel­a­tive­ly safely.

For this pur­pose our work­shop pro­duces break­ways using spe­cial mate­ri­als and work­ing tech­niques. So splin­ters of break­aways will not injure actors, props can be destroyed more impres­sive­ly and some stunts only become feasible.

What is there to consider?

Accu­rate plan­ning is absolute­ly nec­es­sary; pri­or to con­struc­tion, the intend­ed effect must be 100% cer­tain. After all, once a break­away is built to ful­fill a spe­cial pur­pose, it can usu­al­ly no longer be used in a dif­fer­ent way.
E.g. a wall through which a car can dri­ve safe­ly, will not be suit­able for use in a motor­cy­cle stunt. Also some items man­u­fac­tured as break­aways are so sen­si­tive, that they can­not be mod­i­fied after­wards or have a lim­it­ed shelf-life.
