Let’s talk about the different approaches my Fan Book Project could have (for now). My first idea was to publish a selected collection of pictures, some unpublished, some from prop makers, some from private collectors, and so on. All of these pìcs must be related with the proper location of props in the movie. Snapshots tailored to show the exact place, etc. Well, this was the FIRST idea as I said… But…
But, things goes and take form in a way never could thing in the first insight… and this book will be not exception. A second sight about contents showed me that prop topic is vaste and almost impossible to limit… then, a simple categorization appears in my mind:
1. Props used in the screen. Real props.
2. Replicas from real objects in the real world. Objects of normal use that appears in the movie.
3. Replicas made by hobbists, prop makers, casters, artists and so on. Replicas accurate to screen ones.
4. How to identify and find the real props and replicas from real objects.
Well, this 4 points are very extensible… as time goes on and show me.
