Black Mirror

Through a Glass Darkly: Bringing terrifying future technologies to life.

Each episode of this spooky British TV series, named for the way our screens look when turned off, paints a nightmare landscape of future technologies gone awry.

We were thrilled when Production Director, Joel Collins asked us to get involved, and we’ve been the show’s hero prop makers for three series plus a Christmas special.

Joel asked us to take each concept design and manufacture it into a usable set prop. We’ve also created all the communication devices featured in the series (mobiles, tablets, computers, virtual headsets and mind connection devices) in a futuristic style that embodies the Black Mirror aesthetic.
