Filmmaking / Directing : Space Station Set Design/Construction by Michael Dragnea

Space Station Set Design/Construction

Hey all, i'm hoping that i've posted this in the right venue. I'm a Producer out of Toronto looking at starting up a Sci-fi genre feature film revolving around a space station falling apart. I'm experienced in Sci-fi genre, action, thriller and dark comedy, but this one brings on the challenge of a more complicated set design and construction, and i was hoping someone out there could either point me in the right direction or lend me their thoughts from experience behind: 1) The logistics behind the actual construction component, assuming the build is in a secured sound stage... 2) Resources and vendors that may offer services/materials useful to this type of set construction, and 3) any experiences of your own or potentially sets available for sale that i can repurpose for my uses. Dont worry, i plan to bring on a qualified set designer, but in my previous life i was an Architect, so half out of curiosity i want to understand more clearly how these types of sets are built, and as a producer, i want to be prepared with at least the basic knowledge revolving around this type of specialized design and construction. Your thoughts are all very welcome. Michael

I would strongly suggest you contact Adrian Havens either here or on Facebook. He is developing a sci-fi series and has extensive knowledge of the subject & genre. I am one of his staff writers, so please use my name when you contact him. Regards - Marla

Forget sets! If you're an architect, can you design my next home? I'm a former Boeing writer and space junkie.
