CONSIGNMENT USE TYPE DEFINITION GUIDE
All items listed in our consignment auctions will be classified by their use in the production. Please review our defined use types below.
An item made for the production that was unused on set. There is no sign or known use of the item during the production.
An item that was used during the production but cannot be verified as seen on screen or used during filming. These items were made available and intended for use during production, but there is no verification of how or if they were used in the final cut of the production.
An item used by a principal actor (not stunt double) that was used for a stunt sequence requiring a special skill set. The item is typically not made for close ups and is often made of lighter and safer material to minimize fatigue and risk of injury for the actor during a stunt sequence. Also, a wardrobe item for the principal actor may be marked “stunt” with a modified size for placement of padding and/or to allow the actor to move freely to perform the stunt.
An item used by a stunt actor portraying the character for a stunt sequence. A stunt is a difficult or dangerous sequence requiring a special skill set that wasn’t performed by the principal actor. The item is typically not made for close ups and is made of more durable materials to withstand wear during stunt sequences.
A mold is made of rubber or plaster (could be surrounded by fiberglass) production piece used to form a particular shape for the prop/wardrobe items in quantity or in a different material than the original piece was made.
A prototype item is an earlier version of the final piece and could differ from the finalized version ultimately used in the production.
A concept piece can be digital art, drawn art, finished statue, or prototype of the final piece and is used to convey a visual representation of a design, idea and/or mood for use in the production before the final product.
A photo double item is used/worn by a stand in actor portraying the character in a scene, when an up-close shot of a principal actor is not required.
