It was great Bill, and well worth the time and effort you put into it!

I spent nearly days finding and fixing up the little box I used for my treasure chest. It was just a plain wood box from Michael's, then I had to stain it a couple of coats, put all of the strips on it, (they were lengths of aluminum that I had to custom cut , drill, and nail on), paint all of the aluminum strips, put the latch on it, make a fake lock, put the chain on it, and paint the skull and cross bones on the top. All for a few seconds on screen. Anyone want to buy a treasure chest? :)

Again, great job Bill and keep it up.

Mike

And the chest did look very good, Mike! Nice job with that! I think you should bury it on the beach with a note in it to contact you to get the treasure, and see if anybody ever finds it!

On the subject of props, we did of course need to create a "Shadow Lotion" bottle (actually 4, though only 1 ever made it on screen), a "Vampire Slaying" book, some more drinkable fake blood (mmm, mmm good), and round up a bunch of sets of fangs. One of our leads dropped a fang and lost it, so we had to scramble to get a replacement fang at the last minute...

None of this compares with the work put into the treasure chest, though. :)
