About the production design process

Working on Deep 6 was an incredibly rewarding and difficult experience. The process of designing the sets, props and FX rigs took several months starting in the summer of 2016. The build itself took place over two the last two months of 2016. Deep 6 shot over three weeks in January 2017.
As is often the case in projects like these the budget was very tight and it was a major and ongoing struggle to meet the extensive and growing requirements of the show, which included a large variety of sets, props and VFX rigs. Because of money and space limitations not all of the sets could be standing at once but had to be torn down and rebuilt in time for shooting.
With the help of a dedicated and hard working team of builders and props people, however, we managed to deliver a very high level of quality and stay on schedule.
