    Great classes, Joe McNally Rocks! I would like to know which model of smoke machine he used in the shoot. As it is a great SFX tool I am considering buying one, but with any investment, I am concerned about getting a quality product. I am sure Joe or his team knows from experience what is good and what is not so good. Thanks in advance, Michael Sloan.
