  • Nothing yet! In process.
    The working group has been formed to create one or more guidance documents for the safe use of weapons or weapon-like properties (props) in entertainment event productions. It would cover prop weapons such as those that look like firearms (whether capable of firing cartridges or not), edged weapons (e.g., swords and knives), and projectiles (e.g. arrows and darts). The standard would only cover weapons and weapon-like props used on stages, in motion picture studios, or on motion picture locations in the production of a staged or filmed event. It would not cover weapons used by security forces or carried by audience members or staff for personal protection. It also would not cover weapons used in sporting events, such as bullseye pistol or fencing competitions. The goal is to eliminate injuries and deaths from weapons or weapon-like props used in entertainment productions, such as stagings of Hamlet or Of Mice and Men.
