About Agog Vivid Special Effects

Whether you need numbing cold, searing heat, foreboding fog, torrential downpours, light showers, monsoon deluges, blizzards or anything else, Agog SFX are your source for atmospheric effects. Pyrotechnics are no challenge for us either as we can offer an array of controlled, explosions, fire and smoke effects too backed up with a fully equipped workshop with fabrication facilities, 3d printers for models and soft / action props builds.

AGOG SFX, formed in 1998 has been creating physical and practical special effects for 25+ years. From eye popping pyrotechnic effects to creating heightened atmospheric conditions, such as; rain, snow, mist and fog special effects that blend seamlessly with their natural surroundings. We have created billowing smoke effects or fire flame special effects from a single match to flame throwers throwing a 30 metre flame downwards or an oil platform that’s engulfed in fire and black smoke! We can (and have!) design and build mechanical rigs to move anything from a tea-spoon to a 100 ft ship keeling over or even build floating platforms (ice breakaways) that have exceeded 40metres in length. And the occasional prop builds from traditional cannon’s that propel footballs to remote controlled full-scale WWII military Tanks!

‘Agog and Jason’s skills in special effects are innovative, the approach is pragmatic, quality and attention to detail is foremost’.

‘I’m indebted to Jason and his team, the project was worth so much more than the money we paid them’.

‘Agog’s effects blended seamlessly into the script, environment and enhanced the movies’ look, untold’.

Each of our effects rigs are carefully designed and constructed in the most cost efficient manner and extensively tested to achieve the desired result to perform perfectly in-camera. Agog’s ethos is to provide a one-stop service of physical special effects for the film and television industry. Jason, who has 36 years of hands-on experience, formed the company in 1998 and from a fully equipped custom designed workshop in Oxford, we are able to supply any special effect envisaged from the smallest to the most complicated and deliver it in-camera anywhere in the world.

We prefer to manage projects and all associated trades under the special effects department, from initial build to final paint and assembly on set. We’ve found a single point of control improves communication, creativity, quality and production overview, reduces overhead, and always saves directors and designers time 'on the day’!

Situated off the M40 close to Oxford our facilities include 2 fully equipped workshops, office, storage areas, hard standing with 18 steel containers and an off-site licensed pyrotechnic store in the Oxfordshire countryside.

Over the years Agog has invested heavily in buying the very best special effects equipment and developing bespoke equipment, eg., pyrotechnic control systems, both traditional rain and crane rain systems, wind machines from the lightest and softest breeze to 100mph gales, smoke and fog machines, with close on 2m worth of special effects equipment available for your production, all available for creative use ourselves (as we don’t dry hire) be that in feature films, commercials, pop promos, digital video shoots, virals and events to back you up. We'll help you choose.. how to achieve mood, texture, expression or feeling, or simply point you at the right kit, whatever your budget!

Offering our increasingly budget-conscious industry resourceful thinking and problem free effects.
