NBC/Universal - "Grimm"

NBC's "Grimm" contacted me to create a period photograph for use in Episode 6, "Three Bad Wolves" (aired 12/9/2011). They needed a family photo that looked like it was from the mid 1980s, which was to be found in the rubble of a burned down home. I really wanted to go for authenticity with this image, and to make it look like it actually came from a Sears or Olan Mills style portrait studio. Grimm's prop master, Drew Pinniger, made it look nice and charred. I think we pulled it off!

Watch the episode here.

Here's the plot synopsis: "Nick is called to a suspected arson case, which exposes a longstanding family feud that brings Monroe face-to-face with characters from his troubled past. While Monroe wrestles with restraining his wild side, it's up to Nick to keep everything from going up in flames."
