Secret Garden- Candelabras


    Apr 1, 2005 Properties Comments are off

    The scenic designer gave me a sketch for floor standing candelabras. The candelabras required bending of various shares. The smaller details were made with pieces of chain. The candle cups were made from half of a plastic Easter egg. In addition to the construction, I also had to wire the 5 flicker candles and actor operated switch. The center tube was size to have C-size batteries inside which and I created my own battery contacts to keep the size as small as possible.

    Morning Star- Piano Conversion


    Mar 2, 2005 Properties Comments are off

    A taller upright piano was needed for the production of <i>Morning Star</i>. The only available piano did not fit the look. I was given permission to modify a piano that no longer stayed in tune. I took apart the top of the piano, added the needed height and added some decoration. I then repainted the piano so it all matched. In addition to the height, the piano needed to look like it was being played while a speaker inside produced the sound. All the hammers of the piano where already missing so I rigged up rubber-bands to all the keys to hold them up and still allow the actor to push them to look like it was being played.
