Was it a good idea to be involved? Did we make ourselves look complete idiots?
I must say that we thoroughly enjoyed the filming process (once we’d got used to seeing cameras everywhere!) and the production team were fantastic!
We would like to say that those of you who have been in the shop, and know us, will appreciate that with many filming hours constricted down to a one hour slot, does not always show things exactly as they are (if you get what I mean?) but hopefully, you would have seen how important we feel good customer service is to us.
The picture show Rhys & Ellis, after The Great Gorilla run (poor Rhys couldn’t walk for about 10 days afterwards, she has such a bad back). They had been led to believe that the run was much shorter than it actually was due to an error in communication.
and communication is what it is all about today…
On this day in 1876 Alexander Graham Bell patented the telephone and three days later he actually got the thing to work. There was also controversy because whilst in competition with another inventor to be the first with the phone, he used some of his rival’s technology in his prototype, but came up with a sufficiently original design for his final model. Here at Props & Frocks the competition to come up with novel costume concepts isn’t quite as cut-throat. For the most part, some of our suppliers seem to be rather stuck in a rut as to new innovations and are following the trend of ‘revisiting’ old ideas and characters. Therefore we are currently working on a few ideas of our own with the emphasis on originality. Hopefully the fruits of our labours will be available to all soon.
