Escape From New York, Miniature Buildings

original movie prop

(Avco Embassy Pictures, 1981) A lot of 5 original, custom-made miniature SPFX buildings, hand-made under the supervision of James Cameron during the filming of the cult classic motion picture “Escape From New York.” Filmed practically by Cameron when he was a SPFX cameraman on the film. These buildings were utilized to create simulated computer animated graphics seen on Snake Pliskin’s (portrayed by Kurt Russell) cockpit viewscreen, as he glides into New York City, which has been turned into a maximum security prison colony. These building miniatures are scarce and quite unique. Used prior to the advent of the sophisticated digital computer technology that James Cameron would help usher into the film industry in later years. The buildings range in size from 1.75” tall to 1.25” tall.
