Many would say that next to baseball, the film and entertainment industry is Americas' favorite pastime. That said, the magic of Hollywood often involves the use of squibs, blanks, explosives, fire, and pyrotechnic effects of all kinds. Technology and CGI have changed Hollywood, but often the use of real effects are needed.
Most pyrotechnicans have their own insurance when they arrive on the movie set, but often rely on the coordination of the insurance policy from the production company to meet the necessary underwriting and limits required for permitting and venue requirements and other compliance matters.
Perhaps the most "glamorous" job a pyrotechnician can have, but in no way any less dangerous than other aspects of the pyrotechnic industry.
