FOUR-LETTER WORDS

Don Cheadle, Allison Janney, Jason Sudeikis and a contestant play "Four-Letter Words."  Custom letters were designed in Adobe Illustrator, sent off to be CNC routed out of L200 foam, then sealed and painted in fun colors that would be bendable and durable, but also not rub off on hands or clothes.

The first page of my design blueprints for Clue-Boom is this render I did for network.  As for the blueprints themselves? Top secret.  But I'm extremely proud of this already-legendary contraption I designed and engineered using SketchUp and IDX Renditioner.

Every game element is designed to look like it could be a piece of furniture.  It has to feel "high end" and make sense in the space.

A REAL HOUSE

While "Jane's Living Room" was rebuilt on a soundstage for Season 2, our first season took place in an actual house (that people were still living in throughout the shoot!), which was a challenge unto itself--we had to get extremely creative with anything decorative we did because it couldn't be permanent nor leave behind any residual damage.
