Props

Hello eveyone,
I was wondering does anyone know of a place to get props to use for a indie movie cheap other than building them? I know there has to be a website somewhere I just cant seem to find the right one! Thanks!

  • Hello Guitar74! Do you think you could be a bit more specific about which props you need? There are plenty of great websites and shops out there that specialise in a certain field of props- rather than aa bit of everything. For example there's a hobby called larp /Sca- (Live action role playing) where people dress up in medieval or fantastical costumes and beat each other up with foam weapons- whilst it might not appeal to everyone they have some very good quality foam swords, arrows and armour that is much cheaper than the real thing, often you can't tell the difference and your actors will be completely safe whilst wielding them.
    If you were looking for more general items i would suggest having a look at a fancy dress hire shop- not the high street ones as they tend to have less of a range. But usually there are shops just outside of towns that hire out all kinds of props, costumes and make up- some i've seen hire out plate armour that no indie film would be able to afford otherwise! It'd definately be worth i look!
    Like i said, if you could be a bit more specific about your needs someone might be able to help a bit more.
    All the best,
    Sam

    I guess Guns, swords, knives, bigger kind of guns, gernades, futuristic guns. All fake of course! Think about a movie like Resident evil After Life, the weapons is the kind of props I was looking for, but on a very very very tight budget. I was hoping for a site that has a little bit of everything. Also some fake skin, fake burns on skin, stuff like that. Severd arm, leg, etc. Does that help a little more? Thanks
