Prop Money For Cinema and Television

A live-action film or television show makes use of many props, from the clothing that actors wear to items in a house to fake blood, and a common prop for movies and television is prop money. Prop money is easily detectable as false monetary notes since prop money is made differently from real money, and a person holding it can easily tell them apart. Movie props often are real items or look similar to them, based on their nature, and fake money is one of the more common props that actors and directors will make use of during a shoot. Custom prop money may be ordered by a film crew based on the types of money being used in a film. In Hollywood, most prop money will probably be American bills and coins, but foreign currency such as Euros, Mexican pesos, or Japanese yen might appear as well and prop money for them will be needed, too. There are, of course, a number of legal guidelines in place to make sure that (more…)

Collecting Pumpkins and Apples in Autumn

The autumn season is a classic time for harvesting fruits and vegetables from farms; in fact, until about 500 years ago, the autumn season was known simply as “harvest,” and for good reason. Gourds, apples, pumpkins, and much more are collected at this time, and today, they can be a source of great fun for families. Autumn activities can involve families visiting farms where the kids can have fun picking apples from the trees (with supervision), and kids can also visit the pumpkin patch and choose and harvest the pumpkin that they want to take home (often for making a jack o lantern). Other autumn season activities on the farm for kids may include a hay bale ride or a puppet show, or anything else that the farm may offer. For the adults, meanwhile, all of this means that fresh, quality ingredients are being collected for all kinds of desserts, from baking pies to apple donuts to pumpkin pie and baked pie of other flavors, too, and this can be great for American Thanksgiving or a holida (more…)

Tips For Storing And Displaying Your Photos

Pictures are important things, this is something that is pretty much universally agreed upon. With pictures, we have been able to document incredibly important moments in our lives, from our wedding days to the births of our children to even the first steps that those children take. Without the ability to take pictures (now pretty much whenever we want to, thanks to the widespread usage of smartphones in the United States and beyond), much of these important moments would be lost to time and the decaying effect of memory.

And while some pictures are relatively casual and not necessarily all that important, some of your most important pictures will need to be taken care of with immense precaution to prevent decay and deterioration over the course of time. From storing them to hanging them up for display in your home, there are a number of things that you’ll need to keep in mind when handling your most prized photographs. In this article, we will start with how to care for photograp (more…)

Tips For Attending Your First Concert

With countless winter concerts coming up on the horizon, many fans will be attending a venue for the first time. If you’re one of the many who has never gone to a concert before, here are some tips for preparing for your first live show.

Beware of fake tickets

It’s tempting to buy a cheap concert ticket from an unreliable source, especially if your entertainment venue has sold out of tickets. Unfortunately, there are countless scammers willing to take advantage of desperate fans.

Only buy concert or event tickets from Ticketmaster.com or directly your music venue box office. This is the only way to ensure you’re getting a valid ticket for entry. Thousands of unknowing people are turned away each day for fake tickets. This is especially prevalent for popular concerts where demand for event tickets is higher or sold out. This will result in scams, both online and at the concert venue.

Go in a group

A concert can be an exciting, but confusing place. To ensure you stay safe at your first concert, even if it’s a local concert, go in a pair or a group of three. Be sure to establish a meeting point should any of you get lost in the crowd as well. Concerts are exciting, but they can also be confusing if it’s your first time.

Luckily, concerts also have security guards and other employees who monitor safety and can answer any questions. Don’t hesitate to speak to a person of authority if you’re in need.

Don’t bring any food or water

Concert venues hate it when you bring in outside food and beverage. To avoid underage drinking and promote sales within the venue, they’ll likely ask you to throw your food or beverage away before you’re allowed to enter, even if you have valid event tickets. Remember to bring an extra couple bucks to buy a drink inside!

Choose your outfit accordingly

Concerts can be hot, especially if it’s an indoor venue. While comfortable pants are always a safe bet, you should also plan on bringing a light jacket in case they crank the air conditioning. If you like to jump and dance with the crowd, however, bring a hair tie as well. Regardless, always wear comfortable shoes.

Going to your first concert is exciting, but it can be stressful if you don’t know how to prepare. If you’re planning on attending an upcoming concert, follow these tips to stay safe and have fun.
