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

This production had multiple locations, overlapping set ups, and lots of props.  We bought the flowers wholesale, along with some fake ones rented at a prop house, put Euro prices on everything, added an old bike, little French flags, and a chalkboard sign. We got extra lucky when someone on the crew brought in his Vespa.

The location was great because it was part of a hotel courtyard that had a European style to it, which helped complete the look.  Later that day we ended up making an “airport” from an empty building, then later turning that same location into an art gallery.

A boxing gym, French hotel room, an airplane interior, a theater interior and exterior, as well as a few other locations throughout San Diego made this shoot exciting, exhausting, but very successful.
