Digital Snowstorms

On Wednesday, December 12, Fishbon Event Lab operatives tackled the seemingly impossible task of creating and filming a blizzard without snow in Southern California. But, being the highly resourceful team they are, they quickly seized upon Ethan's plan to resurrect their early childhood Paper Snowflake-Making skills and create a snowdrift of intricate white paper cutouts. That took care of the snow part. Now they needed only to convert them into a blizzard. With the help of a blower and expert snow god, Steve, the scene was set. Ethan then filmed the event from below, completing the magic transformation. Check out Ethan's finished video below.
