Welcome To Illusion Projects

Where Your Dreams Become Center Stage

I believe great work is about blending solid ideas with state of the art design and fabrication techniques to create results that excite and exceed our client’s expectations. At Illusion Projects we merge artistic vision with functional design in everything we do. Our goal is to develop a basic idea into something incredible, giving all clients the personal attention they deserve, from concept to completion.

The Idea

At Illusion Projects, we excel in taking an idea from concept to a completed operational prop or installation. With a working knowledge of prop construction and engineering, Illusion Projects can plan and manage the build of a prop or set; from the internal structure to the exterior decoration.

It all begins with an idea, either from the client or in a brainstorming session, before we build your project and trust.

Illusion Projects Idea

Concept Development

Scale 2D or 3D design drawings are produced showing the intended final prop sizes, design and finishes.

The concept drawing is redrawn or altered until the desired look and sizing fit the project requirements.

CAD Design

At Illusion Projects, our 3D designs are created using top of the line CAD software, enabling scale views of props prior to fabrication.

For stage effects and display props, we can supply AutoCAD (DXF or DWG) drawings of the design to integrate with other project vendors to ensure the finished piece will work within the full design scope.
