Certain props were fabricated by off-site set designers. If any props had special mechanisms I had to know how they worked. Insuring props looked to script and the right materials were used during fabrication were also my duties.

BEHIND THE SCENES

As Art Director I worked alongside production designer Kevin Kedroe interviewing and hiring a wonderful group of production assistants and professionals to make up our art department. Many from surrounding universities such as RISD and Brown.

I acquired 80% of the props used for ACHE with no rental fee. Rather than making calls, I walked Providence telling antique store owners about our local production and found some were happy to lend props for a short time in exchange for credit, and product placement. Explaining our safety procedures and rigorous cataloging system helped us take back hundreds of props for set dressing, which was much more than we needed

ACHE

A SHORT FILM ART DIRECTED BY JAHSON FULLER


 

Production called for an old distressed bookshelf or false wall to be constructed  to hide a door to latoya’s left when entering the room. We couldn't easily find a bookshelf online or locally, especially to fit the right measurements for the narrow passage.  So we constructed the prop shelf/wall all by hand from weathered fence post I found and picked up off craigslist for free. This was a great move aesthetically and for the budget. (see the bookshelf in the first scene of ACHE to Latoya's left)
