Hollywood Props So Real the Secret Service Complains

6716 ratings | 672543 views
Sunland, California-based Independent Studio Services is one of the largest prop houses in Hollywood with more than one million props for rent. ISS also designs and manufactures unique props for productions. Chief Executive Office Gregg Bilson, Jr. tells Bloomberg how his job has become more challenging as camera technology has improved. Not only do they have to make things more realistic because HD cameras pick up every detail, but they also have to fend off the Secret Service. Video By: Jeniece Pettitt, Amy Marino

The interior of the B52 in Doctor Strangelove was so close to the real aircraft that the DOD was concerned that the blueprints of the aircraft had been leaked - however apparently Kubrick had it built largely on the basis of guesswork.

Ive seen real fake money. Looks way more real than that stupid bullshit. The only real difference is you can feel they are slightly different, and they fold slightly different

A lot of these guys who work making the props still sell these items. I've obtained movie props, like these, for decent prices.

The U.S. Navy did the same thing to Gene Roddenberry, they tried to force changes after a visit to the set of Star Trek, claiming things were too close to projects in development, but Paramount refused. Side Note: Since none of those "projects" have emerged, when they attempted to shut down a shows production for being too "close", back in the mid 60's, what happened to them...what do they have today, we don't know about?

I highly doubt that anyone renting a rubber gun would need $1000,000 insurance, considering they could just buy an airsoft gun, actual steel replica or even just a live or deactivated real gun for a few hundred dollars at most.
Sakkehattu (3 months ago)
Why don't they just make 1 side realistic, 1 side completely blank? In most cases, audience doesn't get to see both sides. This way you could present a very realistic looking bill to the audience, with next to no chance of it ever getting abused.
Goorpijp Wessel (3 months ago)

If you are a business who accepted those bills, you deserve it. lol Those don't look real... Plus most businesses mark it just to make sure.

Do you make fake actors
Tibe Dog (4 months ago)
It's funny because here in the city I live people are passing fake prop money everywhere. They buy it off ebay in huge lots and are using them in fast food places, college stores, and what have you. Spending a fake $100 getting $60 in change in real funds. Or spending $10 at wendys in a huge line getting $6 in return. We've been haven issues for years.
John Gault (4 months ago)
Most Americans are lazy, and want easy jobs, not jobs they're doing well. People doing well, make them feel bad about themselves, and they call it rude. And seriously, billions of dollars for Budget, millions spent making fake money over the years....why not just real money, all along? Can't trust the crew....we can't either.

Wait... If the government made fake money... Wouldn't it be legal tender still? ( With out going through whatever hoops the treasury has to issue new currency aside)

Compare the barrels on airsoft guns and real guns and you'll see why. From the side, airsoft guns can look like the real thing of course but they're not always practical.

Growing up on 70s TV (nothing but cop, P.I., and crime shows) there was always a scene where the head villain would open a briefcase filled with money. And it was always obviously fake because it was official ‘Play Money’ you could buy at toy stores. Same size as real but a much lighter green and always with an eagle in the center instead of a President...

props to them for making such real parts
Matthew C (4 months ago)
What I see here is Monopoly I almost guarantee no one else can make a prop business thanks to politics and inside deals. So now films have to pay so much money for props and the production of movies have gone up and now pay less to actors such as regular people and it just makes everything more difficult to get paid for screen time
Kaipyro67ALT (4 months ago)
They don't pay a ton for the props, that million dollars is an insurance policy. It lets the prop guys know that you're a real filmmaking crew and not a bunch of morons in your basement shooting an action scene.

ISS should buy the International Space Station (ISS) just to have an ultra realistic "prop" space station.
