From Film to Theater – Found Fringe Style!

Found Theater Company often uses salvaged, reclaimed, and reused materials to make the sets and props of their productions, photo shoots, and video trailers. Not only is the reuse of material more economical for a smaller company, but it’s also way better for the environment than buying new.
