The guys at the BroadcastShow wanted to see what would it take to destroy a Pelican 1600 case; the near indestructible packhorse used by many professionals everyday on sets. So as part of their “tested to destruction” series the BroadcastShow simply put a charge under a Pelican 1600 case to see if they could blow it up? Oh and they used as many cameras as they could to record their efforts.

Our explosives expert has worked on over 25 feature film included three Bond movies and we capture the action with GoPro’s, a JVC GY HM-750, the Sony FS700 shooting at 400 frames per second on a Polecam and numerous other bit of kit including an 8 bladed optocopter from Skypower sending amzing views from above of the explosion.

Blow Up a Pelican 1600 Case

Yes this is a fun test but at the same time you get to see different cameras in use from different angles and all explained before the big bang!!!

Many thanks to BroadcastShow for their efforts.
