We spent a very long and intense summer having a blast working on Nickolodean’s Supah Ninja’s. We worked with nearly every department by the time it was all said and done, making everything from 3d transfer scars for George Takei for the make-up department to silicone slime pants for the costume department to mininature set pieces for the construction department and special set pieces for the art department. But the majority of our work was for Tom Garrigan and Anton Tremblay building special props. We got to build all kinds of awesome props for these guys from tons of rubber swords and other weapons to monkey masks to control panels. We also designed many of the coolest props that we built for the show, including an elaborate computer consol, a telekenetic helmet, a rocket powered skateboard, and butt bombs that farted poisonous gas. Working with me the most on this show were Dave Hartman and Allison Boyle. Needless to say, this experience was awesome! We really refined many of our prop fabrication techniques and developed a lot of new ones too. We made a lot of new friends and colleagues and had a blast working with all of our old pals.
