LIMITED TO 700 COPIES

Many agree that it was the quality of Hammer’s sets that distinguished them from their rivals as their ornate castle interiors with their bold exteriors gave the impression the films had much bigger budgets than they had. Production designer Bernard Robinson and his art director Don Mingaye steered the art department at Hammer’s home at Bray Studios from 1956 to 1966 and, when Robinson finally left Hammer in 1969, Scott MacGregor took over the department for their Elstree and Pinewood based programmes from 1969-73. From The Quatermass Xperiment (1954) to To the Devil a Daughter (1975) we take a film by film look at the work of the art department including the mattes and models provided by the SPFX team that enhanced the sets and added to the art department’s vision.
