Todd A Dean was a Production Designer for over 25 years. He was also involved in thousands of television commercials and film productions in the Ohio area during his career. In the late 1990’s Todd began experimenting with building props and sets using Polystyrene. (Todd Dean Filmworks) Polystyrene is a foam that resembles Styrofoam but is much more durable. Unlike Styrofoam, Polystyrene is made with pressure therefore it has a higher density. Because of this high density it is very strong and can hold a lot of weight and pressure verses Styrofoam.
Todd began seeing a huge benefit in using Polystyrene in Film Production. The light weight quality and ability of easily cutting and manipulating was a big plus in the fast pace of the production world. Polystyrene also never really rots and has a huge self-life. Todd decided to build a cyc wall with this material in the early 2000s’.
Now, Affordable Cyc Walls have been installed around the globe and Todd’s product is in major production facilities with clients like AT&T, Abercrombie & Fitch, Land’s End, Lowe’s Home & Garden and Walmart.com.
