For this particular project, I was tasked with assisting in paper fabrication for three separate spots. We used high-quality illustration paper and super glue as a bonding agent. Many replicas were made of each element to ensure the best uniformity of pieces. All elements were made by hand under the supervision of Open the Portal, a stop-motion animation studio in Hollywood, CA.

Escape Room L.A. - Mayan Ruins

Client: Escape Room L.A.

Fabrication: Kelly McAdams

Location: Los Angeles, CA

 

This Mayan ruin-themed escape room encompassed six different rooms that participants encounter. I was tasked with foaming the ceiling and walls of the skull room, as well as adding paint and texture to other elements of each room as well. I used sawdust mixed with matte paint, to add texture. 2-part Touch N' Foam was used for the skull ceiling and walls.

Aside from aging the walls on this particular project, I assisted in building the flats, as well as constructing the actual set. We also built jacks to hold the walls steady, with directly drilling the base into the concrete floor.

For this set, built on stage at the American Film Institute and Conservatory, I assisted in building jacks for walls, as well as seaming and installing a window. We also built a set of stage stairs on the other side of the entry door.
