We love Jan Chambers. She knows exactly how good our shops are and always comes up with the coolest challenges for them to tackle. For your consideration, see her model of the set for Julius Caesar, below:
What’s up with that giant sculpture of Caesar’s head? Glad you asked. Our props and scenic departments teamed up to take a cast of actor C. David Johnson’s head, which both Jan and our Scenic Charge Artist, Jessica Secrest, are using sculpt this looming figure. After tracing the head cast from an overhead projector, Jessica rough cut each layer with a chainsaw.
Next up, the shop will mount this massive head on its pedestal and Jessica and her crew will give it a paint job!
