PIGEON  CREEK STUDIO

Pigeon Creek Studio are coming to For The Love Of Sci-Fi and they have a message for everyone coming...

"Pigeon Creek is a prop studio that is currently based in Edinburgh. When we look at the type of things that we want to make our mind immediately flicks to the amazing horror movies of the 80's where they were using custom built props instead of the CGI that is the mainstay today.

Movies such as The Evil Dead (1981), Hellraiser (1987), A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) and The Thing (1982) all have some awesome prop work. These are where we take our inspiration from, with our aim to build movie quality items that are crafted by hand and can be used everyday whilst remaining at affordable prices.
