6. Re-using props and set pieces

Re-using props and set pieces

Our art directors try to re-use existing material and rent rather than buy wherever possible.

Art directors fill out a form after every shoot stating which materials have been purchased / rented / re-used / recycled… this helps create awareness and has shown us the progress that has been made since the initiative started.
We all know that art department can be one of the most wasteful departments – a few years ago there were no prop houses in Mallorca making it difficult to re-use any materials for shoots – but all this has changed and now art directors are storing many items to rent out later.
