San Diego’s first choice in Creative Services for the Entertainment Industries.

This spot required us to purchase the props and decor for a variety of set ups on the North Island Navy Base in Coronado. We purchased several sizes and styles of American Flags, researched military triage props used for a disaster/rescue scene, and made a dozen paper flags that needed to look like schoolchildren had made them. We also consulted with Navy personnel on authenticating the proper use of any props we brought in.

We provided greens to dress several outdoor scenes, and used plastic cups (from China!) to create an American flag on a chain link fence. We also provided smoke effects for a beach scene.  To keep communications open with the crew and the director, We created and organized an Art Department Media Cloud so that all research, prop photos, and ideas could be easily accessed by everyone.
