Production Design for Low Budget Film

I recently made a short film called "Art Space" with my friends. Sets were designed and built with very little money to do so. Much of the materials were salvaged items from the street and others were scraps in my shop. I converted my shop into a makeshift soundstage complete with a 2x4 and broomstick lighting grid. Craft services was off to the side on my table saw.
I made a paper mache tree, a mobile, cut out paper birds and a lot of other props & set pieces with found materials. It just goes to show that a lot of great things can be made and found with very little expense to anything but the imagination.
