a few of my favorite props from the first half of production for the season. we took a break in the middle of production to do the starwars special and then started back with the second half of season five. props from the second half are under this post.
"rubber" chicken. this guy gets a good featured shot in the christmas special. made out of magic sculpt.
bowls of popcorn i had to make as identical as possible. for... a skit about... aw hell i think it's jake gyllenhaal and another actor... eff why can't i remember! anyway, popcorn in bowl is carved yellow foam, loose popcorn is magic sculpt.
shoebox that buzz lightyear is buried in. it's a very touching skit. i designed the graphic for the box and then had to do a lot of hard negotiating with the printer to get it to print out long pieces of brown butcher paper. this prop was way more difficult to finish than it should have been... effing printers...
stratego! this was an awesome prop to make. graphic mounted on a piece of styrene, pieces are made out of styrene as well.
dvd and vhs player. made out of wood blocks and styrene. i think we just needed these in general as set dressing, non skit specific.
lots of candy for the willy wonka skit! this picture sucks but it's the best i got. gumdrops are baked sculpey, then i painted them and rolled them in salt and then applied clear coat to finish them off. lollypops are carved styrene. lots of presents for the christmas special here too. some of them were old props i was cleaning, some i made new.
battle plan map for home alone skit! tried to piece together what i could from references of the movie on youtube.
ok, these are pretty rad. i didn't make the cabinets for these, just the graphics. i love them so much! these were some of my favorite graphics i made for the season and seeing them on tiny cabinets is just the bee's knees. i really wanna play foam finger pinball. they were made as generic set dressing but most memorably used for a humping robot sketch.
