A post-apocalyptic period piece filmed (almost) entirely in one set. Video games "Fallout" and "The Last of Us" played crucial roles in the overall aesthetic of the piece.
Radio Tower Build
Extensive research, renderings* and discussion with company StoneDog Studios went into the design and construction of the radio tower. It was then installed and treated further on set by the art department and StoneDog employees.

Keeping all technology and pop culture within the 1963 period cut-off, the set was decorated with music broadcast equipment* and scavenged goods**. Thorough company comparison and thrift shopping helped assure the department would stay within budget. Custom Can labels were created*** and all purchased items were heavily distressed.
