Film Prop Makers

Prop Making Mastery - From art department 2D concepts to high quality physical props that look like the real deal!

Having produced film props and VFX on many well known film and television productions for over 20 years (mostly uncredited), we have finally decided to also offer our services direct to production art departments, in addition to the traditional indirect route.

We are well known in the industry for our 3D digital expertise (3D Digital Modelling, 3D Digital Printing, 3D Digital Scanning, 3D Digital Cleanup & Mastering). Such skillsets enable us to convert 2D concept designs into super accurate 3D physical working props that look 100% real!  Here are some of the productions we have worked on directly, or have been contracted on:

  • Judge Dredd - 1995
  • James Bond 007 - Tomorrow Never Dies - 1997
  • Event Horizon - 1997

The Services We Provide

Although we often get asked to produce fully finished 'ready-for-camera' props, we are equally happy to provide a particular part or element of a prop build. Hence art department creative leads such as Art Directors, Prop Master, HOD's, Construction Managers, Set-Dec etc, often come to us when they have a more complicated requirement that needs some 3D digital modelling magic (see below images). However, in addition to our '3D digital to physical services', we also offer traditional prop making services via our own elite team of highly experienced creatives. Hence we always look to find the right creative balance between using 3D digital and traditional techniques. 

Hence we also offer the following services: 

  • 3D On-Screen Digital Modelling 
  • 3D Digital Model Conversion to Physical Models 
  • 3D Model Prep & Mastering 
  • ZBrush Sculpting & Modelling 
  • Hi-Res 3D Scanning Services & Physical Output Conversion (at any scale)
  • 3D Printing & Hand Finishing Services
  • Prop Internal Electronics  
  • Silicone Mould Making & Casting 
  • Traditional Sculpting (Clay & Poly)
  • CNC Milling (5 axis flat-bed and 7 axis)
  • Hand Finishing
  • Traditional Carpentry & Wood Turning
