Time to use the force to acquire some rare movie props and production items from one of the most iconic movie franchises in film history.
Star Wars week is coming to The Prop Gallery Monday April 20 through Friday April 24, 2015. The Prop Gallery is a retailer of artefacts used in the production of film and television with a focus on vintage items. Founded in 2011 by Jamie Smyth and Derek Rushton with a combined 30 years of experience in researching and collecting film and television artefacts. Collectors and fans looking to acquire something unique to their collection can visit the website to view new listings as The Prop Gallery posts items several times a week throughout the year.
Also as part of Star Wars week at The Prop Gallery; they are giving one lucky competition winner the chance of a lifetime to win a unique part of Star Wars History. An original piece of hand drawn storyboard art created during the production of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back!
In preparation for the Star Wars week event I had the opportunity to interview Derek Rushton the operations manager for The Prop Gallery as well as scoring some cool photos of a couple items being offered.
“We will be offering a total of 20 original artefacts from the Star Wars franchise with the emphasis being largely on the original trilogy.”
