End-to-End Design and Development of Props
Windlass Steelcrafts has had the opportunity to design and supply motion picture and TV props, clothing, and accessories to big and small studios, TV productions, and mini-series all over the world. We achieve this on the back of meticulously researched products, high-quality manufacturing, and the ability to customize finishes, materials (various alloys, woods, synthetics, textiles, etc.) and accommodate production runs from singles to thousands. From quick turn-key solutions to end-to-end custom design and development, we can manufacture pieces in real materials such as wood, leather, and steel or fantastic alternatives such as hybrid polyurethane, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, fiberglass, and latex.
Tight production schedules invariably arise, but because we control the process from start to finish, we regularly accommodate these deadlines that cause concern to so many other companies.
In fact, we have not missed a deadline on any production, Large scale blockbusters like Disney’s Prince Caspian and HBO’s Rome. Our products have reached most corners of the world, and we can proudly state that Windlass has garnered multiple export awards. Significantly, we offer you something most companies can’t – one less headache.
A team of highly trained engineers, craftsmen, and artisans, works directly with the design concepts of the prop and weapon masters to customize the proper look for any production, from historical to sci-fi. Our state-of-the-art, in-house tooling room makes development work much simpler and less time consuming for all parties involved.
