So in summary…

Danny says there was a guy who posted a video on YouTube a while back featuring this same method for creating an outdoor fogger. (food-grade mineral oil inside a propane-powered outdoor fogger), but for whatever reason, it was taken down. So this video is an attempt to keep the idea alive, and mostly just stick it here for me to reference when I forget, or hopefully help others along the way.

Let’s make an outdoor fogger

All you’ll need for this job is:

  • insect fogger (approx $70 at Home Depot, but I’ve seen them as low as $50 on Amazon)
  • propane (a pack of 3 runs about $25) on Amazon
  • food-grade mineral oil (about $21 per gallon on Amazon)

Hopefully this will help someone down the road. Happy filmmaking, have fun, and don’t burn down your neighborhood. Propane is dangerous. Please fog your movie scene responsibly, I’m not responsible for anything.

If any of these links quit working, please let me know so I can update them. Thanks!

Also, just a heads up- keep an eye out for a future video (it will be linked here when it goes live) where you can see me and Danny using this exact fogger setup for a short film shot in just 48 hours… It was pretty wild.
