Production Design: Working with a $2500 art department budget, I had to create a space that would be viable to both shoot and house a heist. Utilizing two existing businesses and a stage build to create one cohesive location that the film takes place. Builds included an interior office, additional roof elements, and a human-sized duct to be climbed down.
