SET DECORATION

Works are largely divided into feature films that fall into various levels of horror/thriller/drama and commercials with a variety of clients and styles from fun & weird to clean & sleek. 

Faux Dundee Teaser Trailer : NY Unit | Tourism Australia

 

2018 Superbowl Ad pre-release

 

We shot Hugh Jackman's Prime Minister office in NY which included ordering a custom aboriginal flag fabrication and  making a cork hat to honor Australian culture. Tourism Australia released a gimmick Dundee movie trailer as buildup to their final Superbowl ad.

Women to Watch | Youtube

2017
Here, we had 10 unique looks to shoot across 3 days (thankfully on one location) with only 2 days prep for set dec. It was a good practice of time management and organization while maintaining an overall vibe within each highly styled look.

Production designer Mary Lena Colston challenged me to compose a subtle lull of discomfort in all of the main interior spaces. Every surface contained a highly curated still life showing tension and at times foreshadowing the turns the story takes.

Wildling
Feature Film

2018

Wildling was my first full length feature as a dept head. The opportunity taught me lessons in communication with the designer and effective scheduling. I also learned about taxidermy, dressing hospital rooms, forested exteriors, and the many details a decorator is responsible for on stage builds including the creation of a fully functional shower.

Commercial for Comedy Central | Truth Anti-Smoking PSA

Here, we recreated the main set of the Comedy Central show WORKAHOLICS at a cat scale out of cardboard and office supplies. I helped fabricate some of the cat's desk dressing and dress the sets to match the established WORKAHOLICS desks
