Just a reminder that the first ever New York City props summit is today at the Public Theatre from 6-9pm. Send me or Jay Duckworth a message if you want to join us.
Here are a few links for today:
- Meredith Ries has a new blog. Meredith has worked at the Public, and is the assistant prop master on Broke-ology, where the gnome is going to make his debut. Check out her post called “how to haul props in August in ten steps“.
- I’ve been a fan of David Strick’s Hollywood photographs for awhile. Go behind the scenes of moves and television shows.
- IATSE Local 470 in Wisconsin has their stagehand primer online. The section on props gives a definition of props, purpose of props, and types of props. Though locals differ throughout the country, this is a good general guide of what a union props person does.
