This demonstration covers real-world construction of a motion picture style prop gun. Rick discusses all aspects of creating something with your own hands that is truly interactive. Production steps include concept design, pre-production, multi-material application/allocation, engineering design and application, shop safety, base formation, machining, fabrication and alternatives, nernies and grebles, mold making, gadgets, gags, paint/faux finishes and other "weird science" tricks of the trade. Independent filmmakers looking to build cost-effective props will benefit from this rare glimpse at a master's process and techniques.
