I did get to build the tricycle that young Danny rides. We built them before the character had been cast and they didnít know how big he would be. Had to make two of the small ones and two of the medium sized so we would be covered.

The company that manufactured those went out of business in 1978 and they are pretty rare these days. We found one on eBay that had a passable seat and remnants of the wheels. The plasterers made molds and laid up fiberglass seats while we had the wheels sent out to be 3-D scanned and printed.

I was a huge fan of the original shining, the entire time I was working on them all I could hear was alternating hardwood and carpet.
Thread hijack...

Any chance you know a guy named Tommy(or Clark) Templeman?I believe he's in the same line of work,but I don't know for which studio.

I had about a month off after that show and rolled right into Dr Sleep which was just as demanding! I will share a few of the difficult times on that one in a year or so...

The battery had side post terminals & the dipstick is located 6" below the positive terminal. It also needs to be pulled straight up.

Really crappy design. Shocking eh?

71PA_Highboy So don't leak anything SPECIFIC, tell us about the challenges of doing what you do.

I don't need to know what characters do what, but the engineering of a device or a process is still cool.

I have never heard of the show you are referencing, but I think the story is still worth hearing.

Mike the director is a very driven person and he expects everyone to have his drive and vision! Getting things to work and sound exactly like he imagines will cause lots of sleepless nights. What you hear on the screen is more often than not the sound of the rig.

Episode 6 was one of the most difficult sequences we've ever done. We shot Ep1,2,3 in the first block, then rolled in to Ep 4,5,7. We were supposed to do 8,9,10 and then drop back and film #6 due to the complexities of shooting those 10 to 15 min takes.

Unfortunately, the studio decided to go into Ep 6 after the 2nd block and we had to jump thru our asses to get it done. Every rain drop you see on screen was rigged buy us in a sound stage. The chandler that drops at the first edit point is dampened by 2.5" bump stops from Don Thuren. I built one "Hero" and 2 "Stunt" versions of it.

For some strange reason we always end up shooting the aftermath first. The scene where it's dragged over to the edge of the foyer was shot a month before the actual drop. Guaranteeing that the practical drop will exactly match previous footage at the very end of a 15 minute take is fucking stressful.

Here's the half scale sideways version I made for the director as a wrap gift.
