Set construction for 60 minutes TV re enactment "One Way Ticket"

Set construction for TV re enactment "One Way Ticket"

60 minutes contacted Objet Bart through EEgender Films to design and construct a custom build of a plane fuselage set for a fatal crash re enactment. It was quickly agreed that to control the budget and expand the potential of the special effects suspended set, we should build as well as shoot in our workshop in Alexandria. In order to visualise the set, we drew up 3 dimensional graphics to illustrate the dynamic functionalility of the floating set for the producers and the stunt co-ordinator,Grant Page. 

Objet Bart drew on its experience in TV and film design and art direction, constructing a suspended platform with ribbed half fuselage, fully lined and detailed. This was all based on consultation with the client, research from archival media material and aviation safety reports of the incident.

With only a week from design to shoot, effective collaboration with the client and director and clear visual communication was the key a smooth build and detailing period delivered on budget and on time. On the day the stunt team, actors, and film crew got the scene with no bruises.
