Art Direction and Costuming: Punk’s Dead

Punk’s Dead: SLC Punk 2 (2016)

Our shops and personnel provided art department & costume services for director James Merendino’s sequel production to his cult classic SLC Punk.
Art Director/Associate Producer Hraefn Wulfson provided production design services including specialty prop and set design, plus sourcing and builds with the help of our teammate Russ Adams. Assistant Costume Designer Jennifer McGrew and her crew provided patternmaking, costume construction, tailoring, fittings and alterations for visiting designer Fiora Boes.
Crowdfunded in part through its Indiegogo campaign, Punk’s Dead demonstrates how effectively an already-loved commodity can be marketed to its fan base plus attract new audiences. The film debuted at the Cannes Film Festival and was purchased for distribution. Live theatrical premieres around the U.S. were followed up by the film’s release in digital format where fans everywhere can purchase and view this sequel about the original film’s next generation.

Custom Fancy Food Exhibit: Apriori

Famous food purveyors Apriori needed a custom display to use at the conventions and fancy food shows they attend. Our production designer Hraefn Wulfson built this one to show off their lines of beautiful artisan chocolates and candy. The shelves are all adjustable and the display pieces hinge in, compressing to ship around the country and around the world. Custom signage: Michael Fitches.
January 2016.

Giant Custom Stage Props for USANA

A BIG custom props commission.

 

Precision cut foam pieces with plenty of sanding, assembly and application of ‘Screen Goo’ (a custom coating painted on that makes the show’s 3-D projections look spectacular).   Hraefn Wulfson, Russ Adams and Crit Killen combined forces to create these for USANA’s annual convention at the Energy Solutions Arena.

 

Salt Lake City, Utah. September 2015.

McGrews Reimagined

Are we in Narnia now?

The McGrew Studios’ 2010 remodel began with a gutting of its entire storefront. This remarkable re-imagining of our meeting space by designer Hraefn Wulfson included unique custom fixtures made of wood, metals, fabrics and other materials by highly skilled artisans, creating a steampunk flavored fantasy room.

The technical skills, contributions and sheer labor of so many talented friends and clients converged in our new front parlour space. It is virtually a salon, where on any given day you might meet politicians, rock stars, producers, poets, professors and others who stop in to say hello.

We invite you in to say hello as well.

Custom Headless Horseman: Rocky Mountain Outfitters’ Haunted Wagon Rides

Custom headless horseman costume we created for Rocky Mountain Outfitters’ Haunted Wagon Rides attraction, 2014.

We designed it so each of the pieces are each individually made for easy care and washing/drycleaning. The horseman’s head/neck apparatus itself weighs less than a pound. Great for visibility, safety and maneuverability.
