About

I am writing this blog in two different ways

1)

HOME

This is where regular posts will be added. They will not be in chronological order but will take inspiration from my wanderings though our diaries and photo albums and will be written with the help of Louise. Sometimes they will be about a single prop or film or person, at other times they will take a broader view.

March 1982 Diary

Two page a day diary 5th March 1982, showing what we had to send in on the day.

2)

These pages will be written chronologically and in time will go through to 2011 and beyond.

IN THE BEGINNING   July 1967 – 1973

BETTER THAN WAGES  1973 – 1975

SHEPPERTON STUDIOS  1975

Just in case you want to know, the picture at the head of our blog features three out of many prop automata we made for Martin Scorsese’s  Film ‘Hugo’,
