Prop Sourcing & Set Creation
We are often required to create or source almost anything and everything needed to add a sense of realism to a set. This could be something as simple finding 1950’s maple side table, to recreating the interior of a room, entirely in red. Whether we are sourcing or making props we use ingenuity, imagination and creativity to create the look you need.
Working with tools is also a large part of set building. Creating a temporary frame work, welding, painting, using carpentry tools to adapt existing items, by distressing them, or applying other effects. All of this work requires careful planning ahead of the shoot but can sometimes be called upon reactively as a shoot evolves.
