Laura Savage is a Set Dresser and Prop Maker with over 15 years experience. She has always been happy working with her hands to create environments and props that bring life to stories. Whether it’s designing for theatre, dressing sets for film, or crawling into tight spaces around fragile miniatures on animation sets; she still finds joy in the stories details can tell. Originally from The UK, Laura started out as production designer on ‘The Secret Garden’ for The Tobacco Factory Theatre. She went on to work as a Props Dresser on films such as ‘The Imitation Game’ and ‘Ex Machina’ and also spent a summer under a giant fire breathing spider as stage crew for the amazing Arcadia show ‘Metamorphosis’. But It was her work with Aardman Animations, on productions such as ‘Shaun the Sheep’ and ‘The Pitates! A Band of Misfits’, that got her noticed by the animation studio Laika, here in Portland, OR. Since relocating here 2 years ago to work on their up coming film ‘Missing Link’; Laura has also worked for Shadow Machine on their animated series ‘The Shivering Truth’, and is now delighted to be returning to live theatre with her first production with Artists Rep.
