Prop Buyer

Picture Warehouse 13 or the expansive storage facility of mysterious artifacts in the Indiana Jones series. Hidden in crates and catalogued on shelves, there are thousands of miscellaneous items that each tells a story. In feature film and television, props are a critical part of storytelling and setting a realistic scene. Like Dr. Jones, the prop buyer is a treasure hunter that combs through those shelves.

Set Dresser

No matter how impressive the set or visual effects, the scene does not feel organic without set dressings; these include tables, chairs, utensils, and anything else that occupies a scene (but the actor doesn’t touch) that makes a space feel lived in and realistic. To assist in bringing the set to life, set dressers are tasked with implementing the set decorator’s design.

Assistant Property Master

Just about everything an actor touches or uses in a scene is considered a prop. Taking into account the full run of a two-hour movie, that could amount to hundreds or even thousands of objects. To keep the massive inventory organized and make sure that every item is at the cast’s fingertips when it’s needed, the assistant property master is the right hand of the department.

Work Light Productions

Work Light Productions is a live entertainment production company that creates original shows and theatrical tours of Broadway productions.

History For Hire

History For Hire is a prop house catering to the film and television industry and specializes in rare antiques and vintage film equipment. Jim Elyea and his wife Pam founded the company from their apartment in 1985.

Prop Master

A sword hanging on the wall is a set decoration, but a sword in an actor’s hand is a prop. The person responsible for scavenging and creating the dozens (even hundreds) of props for a stage production is the prop master.
