    Hi CB,

    We're working on a small piece that involves children dressed up like penguins. There is a part of the script where a few of the penguins walk up a 3' staircase and jump behind an iceberg. We were hoping to create a splash effect behind the iceberg after they jump. Some ideas that were being tossed around was a confetti cannon loaded with blue artillery, or a large white iceberg-shaped flat behind the set that we project a splash effect onto. Does anybody have any experience with this?

    Real water would be great, but I don't have the personal experience with water onstage to do that safely or effectively.

    Thanks a bunch!
