SPECIAL EFFECTS

Special effects are the exclamation point in the event vocabulary. These attention getters enhance the event atmosphere and always leave a lasting impression with any audience. Use them to direct attention, dazzle, excite or surprise at any celebration. KM uses an array of materials to create fantastic effects that transport guests into another world and leave them awestruck. 

NYC law requires special pyrotechnic and effect permits for an event using any type of atmospheric effect. Our team will file the proper permitting on your behalf and can insure the uninterrupted operation of these machines.
