3D Printing Movie Props
Rapid Prototyping with Stereolithography (SLA)
In 2018 Forge Labs collaborated with Theta Effects on a complex prop for Come to Daddy, a black comedy feature starring Elijah Wood. In the film, Elijah Wood’s character has a cast-iron receipt spike stabbed through his cheek - an effect that had to be done with real props, rather than CGI.
Theta Effect produced the prop in two components - a false cheek, which held the base of the receipt spike, and a spike which was mounted on a dental appliance inside the mouth.

Finally, Theta Effect painted the part to mimic the look of cast-iron. To see more of their excellent work, click here.
