"If We Build It, They Will Film." - Art Departments
It was all a dream, or rather, an idea born out of another amazing project.
While in pre-production, our producers hit a bit of a road block trying to find a viable location for an industrial set inside a construction trailer. Needless to say, finding a construction trailer to film in, on location, is difficult…contractors and architects apparently need those spaces to do their jobs.
Set Design FIrst Draft
Our producer team worked on finding a location that matched the full look and aesthetic of the script.
They looked at various portables, trailers, and spaces hoping to find one that was the perfect fit. At one point, they considered whether or not they could control the weather and film at an authentic location, when aforementioned contractors were delayed because of rain. However, the spaces that they’d found didn’t feel like they would give the full and needed breadth of the script, because they wouldn’t be able to accomplish the wide shots in these tight spaces.
But then, the light shone itself, our Art Department had built a wall for the backdrop of an internal project and the producers thought, “What if we built it?”
Enter the Art Department!
Our amazing Art Department jumped on this opportunity with excitement and vigor.
They immediately drafted a set design to fit the clients needs and specifications…and boy, did it wow the team as well! There was no doubt in our minds that our talented team could get it done, but there was also no doubt in our minds that this was a heavy lift with a week and a half turnaround time. So, they hit the ground running.
