Posted on January 27, 2014

Set designers and movie producers have found new ways to make sets look quite realistic. Not only do they seek to make the sets as real as possible, but they also desire easy installation. Imitation stone or brick helps set designers to save time and money with their projects. Building a set is a complicated and hard process but it can't take a long time because the projects usually have a short deadline.

Sets have to be made in a short amount of time or else the project goes go over budget and underwater. These projects are large undertakings that require a lot of work and attention to detail which is why polyurethane architectural elements play a large role.

Making a movie means creating a realistic yet magical interpretation of the artist’s story. Movies help people escape from reality or get in touch with parts of life that people haven’t experienced before.

Each piece of the puzzle has to be perfect so the story really touches peoples' hearts. That is why it is so important that polyurethane products are made with the strictest attention to detail so they ensure a great look. This set below did not use one ounce of real stone but the polyurethane architectural elements made them seem realistic.

Set designers are some of the most creative people in any industry because they have to improvise and innovate with almost every project they work on. The product that helps make their life a lot easier is the Antico Elements' faux stone panels used in some TV show sets and movies.

Polyurethane comes in a variety of shapes and sizes enabling set designers to create houses that look like brick homes in hours without having to use real brick. Different architectural elements and installation tips can be found here for more information- www.anticoelements.com

If crews are going to shoot a scene in a house that requires the traditional look of brick set designers can save time because the brick panels just need to be screwed or glued onto studs or plywood to create that realistic look.

This equals hours of work saved for the set designers. Before polyurethane products set designers would have to paint fake bricks on houses or find another way of creating a stone or brick style on a set that looks just like the real thing.

Brick homes like the one in Home Alone could have been made at a quarter of the price that it cost for actually renting and filming in one for a movie because homeowners usually charge an exorbitant rate for renting the house for a movie due to the inconvenience.
