Ant-Man and The Wasp - Specialty Prop Maker and Gang Boss, Mike Garcia (Local 44) works out the details on Cassie's Maze.
Ant-Man and The Wasp - I used to have this credo that I refused to do schools and children's bedrooms. The Universe decided differently, so I try to make them as interesting as possible, while supporting the telling of our story.
Ant-Man and The Wasp - Atlanta Dressers Patrick Dalen, Patrick Johnson, and Gang Boss John Day (Local 479) assemble the "petals" of the Quantum Gateway.
Ant-Man and The Wasp - Mike Garcia spearheaded more specialty props for this movie than I can name. He's a great artist and a great guy. I'm lucky whenever we have an opportunity to work together.
Ant-Man and The Wasp - Just a slice of the team we had assembled for Ant-Man. A collection of folks from different Locals - all fantastically talented. The tall guy in the back row is my Leadman, Grant Samson, who is the backbone, shepherd, and motivator behind it all. Leadpersons deserve front-end credit for their contributions to film.
Ant-Man and The Wasp - We get to make a lot of pretty machines that light up and look like they have an important function. So many talented people contribute to this. This was one of those situations where everyone's hard work paid off and we got to make a really fun movie.
Ant-Man and The Wasp - Production Designer, Shepherd Frankel, had so many cool ideas to marry analogue and digital technologies within the most unlikely environments. He really challenged me to turn up the pilot, and the results were very satisfying. Here's the Ghost Chamber in its original room -- all built on-stage.
Ant-Man and The Wasp - We got to make a little orphanage for a back-story. Buyers Katie Childs (Local 44) and Jenn Sandel (Local 479) found so many great pieces for this, and all the sets. I get to work with the best folks, and I couldn't be more thankful.
Ant-Man and The Wasp - The pre-cursor to Hank Pym's Quantum Machine, in the story is meant to be an older, cruder version in a warehouse in Buenos Aires. This is my kind of world to work in.
Ant-Man and The Wasp - We finished up in an alley in Chinatown, San Francisco. Here I am flanked by two locals, Set Dresser Stewart Allen, and SF Leadman, Mike Helbig. It was a great last day with a great local team.
