Welcome to the Island of Misfit Props. Where the unwanted props get left out in the rain :(
This is one of my favorite special effects miniature pieces. This me-109 nose section was used in the 1985 TV series, Amazing Stories. Episode titled “The Mission”. (one of my favorite series episodes)
Here’s a fun rig we built last year for a Reebok commercial starring Shaq and Tyga.
This lifting table was moved up and down with a counter weighted jib arm. The jib arm was digitally removed in post.
Suburban Commando movie miniature. (rigged for pyro)
The miniature platform was positioned so that the real background scenery was in scale to the model. The model looked absolutely real through the camera, especially when a real car in the distance passed by.
California Lottery commercial props.
The speed boat was completely blacked out in vinyl and reupholstered in black. We then added a communication monitor, control buttons and a throttle lever.
Nationwide “Heart” prop.
We built a variety of heart shaped props for this commercial shoot.
This camera lens piece was attached to the actor’s camera and then blended together in post.
