I'm wondering about the clean up involve with the Kevin James snow animator...does it make a big mess i.e. confetti load only or?

I saw Kevin do it live, yes it makes a big mess.

Any snowstorm will make a big mess. I carry a large shop vac with me when we drive. When I fly to a show it's the host's responsibility.

Usually it is best to have the confetti swept to one place with a large push broom.

I am always gracious and apologize for the mess. (In the illusion show I add 2 CO2 cannons filled with confetti at the end of the snowstorm - bigger mess)! We offer to help with clean-up, but the client amost always have others do it.

Do you mean cleaning up the animator itself or the confetti mess afterwards? I always clean and remove all the confetti inside my 3.0 by inverting the box and blowing every single piece out after every show.
As for the mess, I do parties and it's part of it. At one part of my act, I clean up the stage by letting my macaw parrot flap his wings and all the confetti flies out of the stage in 3 seconds.

Anyone ever re-cycle the confetti?

Please be careful about recycling confetti as any hard objects
being picked up could be blown out again. We prefer not to take this chance.
As well the confetti is fresh and blows better.
