A Tree Fit For A Seagull (Part 1)

by:  Thom Dunn at 02/11/2014

I just received this email from Scenic Carpenter Nick Hernon offering a brief glimpse into the action in the Scene Shop today, where the crew is hard at work on the set for The Seagull

Our tragically crowded shop. The walls in the middle are being painted and are too big to move anywhere else. 


This is a drawing that represents 26' tall trees. We're supposed to try to build it so it's looks super- close to this. 


Instead, we set the printer's scale to print out trees that ARE 26'. We glue the paper to thin plywood and cut the plywood out: instead of being super-close, they are exactly like the designer's drawing.  We lay the pieces out on the floor, Cut pieces of steel to lie within the image, and Weld the peices of steel into one Robo-tree. 

We nail the plywood to the steel, glue strips of sheet-foam to the plywood and spray foam into the spaces; this makes some of the weirdest looking trees you've ever seen. We then cut, shave, and sand them into a rounded, more natural looking shape. 

We glue muslin to soften the edges and provide a more paintable surface. 

 

Check back over the course of the week for more tree-building process shots!
