The Fascinating Art Of Making Paper Props, Maps, Posters, Reports And Newspapers For Film And TV

Ross MacDonald is talented illustrator and prop master of all things paper. For the last 25 years, he’s created tens of thousands of paper props for movies and television shows like “Baby’s Day Out,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Boardwalk Empire” and “Parks and Recreation.”

From handwritten letters to driver’s licenses, each piece is custom made and thoughtfully imbued with backstory.

MacDonald is extremely skilled at his craft, but remains humbled by the role he plays in the production of a film or show.
