Supporting a Door in a Set Design
We need a door in a set design and I was wondering how to do it. It needs to be sturdy enough to handle teen actors going in an out a lot. It also needs to be light weight and compact so it can be stored and set up again easily.
My thought was to buy a pre-hung interior door, put some trim on it, and build a base behind it to hold it up. That seems simple enough to do but got to thinking that there may be tricks of the trade that would make it even easier or cheaper. Any suggestions?
Note: Not sure if this is where this thread should be or if it is out of the realm of church media but I thought I would try.
We've done it exactly that way (I'm not on the set team, but that's clearly the way they did it). Also used the sliders you can get for appliances to move it more easily.

Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of The Set Construction Handbook and The Backstage Handbook. Great resources!
