“Bunheads” – ABC Family – (Sunset Gower Studios) – Production Designer: Maria Caso – Art Director: David Potts

Located on the campus of the beautiful Los Calamigos Ranch in Malibu.
One of the challenges on this project was that the Art Department did not have a large format printer, and the staff print shop closed everyday about 2:00p or 3:00p. So to ameliorate this I converted the drawings to 11×17, thus allowing us to print them in-house at anytime, with a minor exception of the 24×36 site plan. The construction crew LOVED it because they could pull apart whatever pages they needed and it would fold up enough to pocket conveniently. This set was built from scratch on location at Los Calamigos Ranch in Malibu. This project had a very short fuse with the design changing up until 2 days before principal photography.
