E-Cigarettes and E-Cigars: Creating a Convincing Smoking Effect on Stage and Screen for Non Smoking Actors.
All the world’s a stage, but all its players aren’t smokers. With far reaching smoking bans now in place throughout the world, creating a believable character who smokes on stage is becoming increasingly challenging. What’s more, there are many non smoking actors and actresses who don’t want to subject audience members and colleagues to the dangers of passive smoking. That’s where the Veppo line of electronic cigarettes and cigars comes into play – the perfect solution for directors and performers looking to create a convincing smoking effect on stage and screen, without the use of real cigarettes. Vaping is ideal for authenticity when considering health and implications in the theatre industry.
Electronic Cigarettes for Theatre
Veppo’s electronic cigarettes and cigars produce no odor or smoke, and yet they look indistinguishable from the real thing. This is a great option for theatre or film directors who need their characters to smoke when on screen or stage. The last thing a director needs is for an effect to look cheap or unbelievable, this takes the audience out of the experience, reminding them that they are watching something which is “smoke and mirrors”, which takes away from being in the moment and wrapped up in a story. The authenticity of Veppo’s e-cigarettes and cigars is unrivaled.
Even in areas which do not have an active smoking ban in place, locations, sets and theatre buildings have their own codes. With a Veppo cigarette or cigar, a performer can simulate the look of a smoker without putting themselves or others at risk, and without violating any venue code. The play will look great, the actor will be able to immerse themselves more effectively in their character, and no one will have to worry about the negative health impacts of smoking: it’s a win-win situation for all concerned.
Easy to Use for Non-Smoking Actors
If you’re a non-smoking actor then being asked to smoke a cigarette or cigar for a role can create a real dilemma. You want the part, but you don’t want to damage your own health and the health of those around you. That’s why we have created our e-cigarettes for non smoking actors and e-cigars, to work perfectly as believable stage props.
Veppo e-cigarettes and cigars work by vaporizing small amounts flavored liquid to create vapor which simulates smoke. Each vaporizer can be filled with nicotine or nicotine free liquids at a fraction of the cost of a pack of cigarettes. When a performer inhales through the e-cigarette or cigar, the tip lights up using LED lighting technology which looks like the real thing. When an actor or actress exhales, all that comes out is vapor which looks indistinguishable from smoke; with the added bonus that it is completely harmless and doesn’t smell!
As a stage prop, the Veppo e-cigarette and e-cigar line of products are flawless; what’s more, if you are a smoker, you can enjoy the sensation of smoking without the negative health benefits, helping you create a complete character while enjoying a smoke without the smoke.
