Redheaded Bastard Prop Children

This is an article that I wrote for Oz Magazine, published by Gary and Tia Powell of Oz Publishing. The artwork was provided by Oz Magazine.

Trained as an architect then thrown beside camera on movie sets as a prop guy, it took me the better part of a decade to resolve the dichotomy of that department’s place - caught between the art department and the shooting crew. Here’s an excerpt:

“There I was, crouched in the street, watching a team of moving men unloading boxes and furniture from an old-fashioned truck. They were doing a good job until suddenly, one of the men strolled down the ramp carrying a wicker chair painted robin’s egg blue. Before I could yell, “Where did THAT come from?” a guy to my right erupted into a muttered litany of impassioned profanity. It was okay: he was a propmaster and it was his job to quote from the International Bible of Creative Expletives on a somewhat regular basis.”
