We prefer to use a combination of the modern prototyping approaches and expert scratch building and hand finishing techniques to realise initial designs.
We can employ 3d printing, laser cutting and CNC machining to supplement our modelmaking,prop building, sculpting and metal fabrication.
We can also offer a range of moulding and casting services. We can cast foams, rubbers, fibreglass, carbon fibre, plaster, concrete, and metals. This means we can achieve large production runs where required.
We can provide product and environment design services that fit your vision. These can be seen
right through the manufacture phase according to specification and into final installation
or other applications.
From 2D design, we can provide 3D digital modelling that then leads into 3D printing or CNC machining techniques.
We can create a wide range of finishes for existing products. We have painted miniature environments and full scale sets, a variety of realistic surfaces for plastic props, and replicated period paint jobs on military vehicles.
We can get props, costumes and sets film ready by using a variety of breakdown techniques to tell a story that 'sells' the item.
We can stand by sets we have designed or manufactured, working with the technical requirements of the rest of the production.
We have many years of experience in creative project management ranging from digital design briefs to large scale construction projects. We have both worked as Heads of Department for feature film projects, and have set up and supervised large manufacturing facilities.
Because we can take a concept through design and manufacture and look after it during use, we are a natural choice for project management - planning, budgeting, and supervising workloads.
Our film construction experience covers TV sets, miniatures, and both local and Hollywood movies.
We have planned and supervised the manufacture and installation of public art works and museum displays.
We have created a presence for companies at gaming and film conventions, designing an attention grabbing and usable structure, directing it's installation, and then arranging it's pack out.
