I just wrapped Nine Eleven on a few days ago. I had a set dressing budget of just 25,000 not including our elevator WTT lobby. Half of my budget went to our control room leaving just 15,000 to do the rest of the show. With luck, hard work and the kindness and generosity of some of some of the L.A. prop houses to pull it off.
I'm good with a budget and I love the challenge of squeezing every possible ounce of visual richness from each dollar. I'm a bargain hunter and wheeler-dealer but never more so than with Nine Eleven. Our Director, Producers, UPM, LP and my Designer were extremely happy with what I was able to achieve! I hope you enjoy it. p
