Shooter's Comments:

When I heard they were going to have a fog machine to simulate smoke, I was hoping for an angle with the kids in fog. But they never got close enough to make it work. The next best thing was a shot of an assistant fire chief watching the lack of action. Paired with a shot of students in the hallway, it tells the short story of an elementary fire drill. The poster with flames was a nice addition.
