Props from Two Years Ago

Tip of the Day:
Keep the things you've made just in case.

I needed a prop we used a couple years ago for something I was working on today. It was a pizza box that we had dutifully smeared with oil to make it look like it was grease-stained.

Pizza Delivery

Thankfully, we still had it. Otherwise the thing I was doing would have become an even bigger hack-job and required a lot more time.

Ah... the world of media production: Where lying fabricating reality is a way of life.

The only problem with keeping stuff you make is that you have to find a home for it. And space is limited. At least, it is at my house. Especially when you start covering walls with bookcases...

Uh... 6 people, 880 sq.ft. Enough said! We'd be remaking that prop for sure.

So, what's it for? Come on, tell us!

Mrs. C, that prop was actually used in MathTacular4... which we shot way back in the day. <smile>

Kim, <smile>.

Thanks so much, Amy! And I have some how missed your blog until now. I've added you to my reader and hope to get to know you better in the coming days <smile>.

I hear ya, Sue! And that prop was, as I told Mrs. C, used in MathTacular4. I just can't refuse friends who beg me for information <smile>. Well, information I'm free to share <smile>.

Aww, I wish you wouldn't have brought this topic up as I've been trying to eliminate things I haven't used in a long you're allowing me to reconsider a bit! LOL!

<laughing> That's why I added the "limited space" bit. If you don't have room for it: Get rid of it!
