Fireworks - The Spark Behind the Spectacle

We might be tempted to believe that to set off some of the city's best pyrotechnic nighttime spectaculars, you just gotta ignite the light and let it shine.

But what happens before the fuses are lit?

This week on I Love KL, we're joined by fireworks programmer Jeffry Bahary, the man behind the 2017 SEA Games fireworks and countless more firework spectacles around the world. From inspiration to ignition, Jeffry enlightens us on what it takes to put together a firework show, getting into the industry, the not-too-worrying growing popularity of drone shows filling our night skies of late, and some tricks of the trade.
