Have you ever watched a movie where actors get smashed in the head by a bottle or thrown through a window and wondered, “How did that actor not get hurt?” It’s actually a secret in Hollywood not many may know about, and it’s all to sell you on big stunts, and to keep actors safe.
YouTube channel, Insider, recently went to visit a well-known prop house that specializes in creating movie props which are easily breakable and won’t injure a person if broken over them. What makes them easily breakable is actually found at their chemical foundation! The props are made of denser materials than the actual thing, thus making them incredibly fragile.
The prop house makes props like bottles, glasses, mugs, vases, chairs, cinder blocks, and many more!
Check out the video and see all of the innovative ways these props are made and put to use!
