Under the Floorboards

Under the Floorboards was our final year film project at university.

As the production designer for our group, one of my tasks was to build a model city that would sit under the floor of the set.

The finished model on display at the LUMA Film Festival 2016.

The finished model measured 1m x 1.5m, and was made in two pieces that hooked together to make it easier to transport to and from the filming location.

The model in position on set.

It was built using model railway scenery, and featured 40 working street lights (credit to Warren Monks for taking care of the wiring) and 26 buildings, including the house shown below, which was built from scratch to match the exterior filming location.


The model featured working street lamps and textured roads.
