Over 30 years' experience in physical special effects, special prop-making and scenic builds.

Artem has over 35 years’ experience in physical special effects and model-making. We provide a full range of floor effects, including pyrotechnics and rigs, for our clients in film, TV, commercials, and live events. Our making services include models, miniatures, prosthetics, sculpture, animatronics, and special props. With extensive workshop premises in West London, Glasgow, and Manchester, we are ideally positioned to cover location and studio shoots across the UK.

We have a flexible and highly responsive workforce that can respond to the changing needs of any film or TV production, and deliver a high-quality service, anywhere in the world. Our team can bring a range of skills to your project. By applying our creative flair to your ideas, we help you to realise your concept in a timely and cost-effective manner. Our approach includes both modern and traditional tools and skills - from computerised design and manufacture to hands-on sculpting or welding, all provided on the same site for maximum convenience and availability. Whatever your vision, however big or small, we can bring it to life.

We also offer a wide range of special effects equipment for hire and sale, including products designed or adapted by Artem, such as the iconic Artem exterior smoke gun which sells worldwide and our ‘quiet’ three-phase electric wind machines for interior or exterior shoots.
