Aero Mock-Ups Opens Skyway Stage – An Airport Terminal Mock-Up

Airport terminals can be incredibly tedious. The baggage security checks, the long hallways, check-in/ticketing, and your staple Auntie Anne’s Pretzels knockoff shop. They are also practically impossible to film in.

After almost a year of planning, construction, and installation of everything necessary for the project, Aero Mock-Ups now has the perfect go-to airport terminal to film in.

  • Wi-Fi controlled LED Green Screen backing 36’ wide x 9’6” high corner windows with eight pivot panel
  • Three high-profile arches with dimmable recessed lights
  • Three double doors, one with Jetway entrance
  • Two Restroom and a VIP entrance
  • Carpeted wood floor and dimmable side wall wash lights
  • Architectural styled stage that can provide the setting for a Penthouse, Boardroom, Corner Office, Nightclub, or Dressed as a Passenger Terminal, it can facilitate; Check-in/Ticketing, TSA security, Boarding/Gate, Concessionary, Customs and Immigration areas. Appropriate Set Dressing included.

Aero Mock-Ups – From Cockpits and Interiors to Terminals and Wardrobe

AEROTEMPLATEIt is surprisingly hard to borrow an airplane for a day. Those airlines keep saying they need to use them!

Another annoying factor about filming on airplanes is that they are all cramped, meaning the camera guys and boom operators are not the happiest people on set. That’s why Aero Mock-Ups exists.

Often it is important to get a shot from a certain angle and actually shooting in a plane just plain doesn’t make sense. Aero Mock-Ups has airplane sets that come apart just the way you need them to.

Aero Mock # 1Need to shoot from the side? He can do that.

Need to shoot from the front or back? Also an option.

I recently checked in on Richard’s inventory and it’s just as great as always, but NOW with the option of modern airline seats with the fancy TVs on the back!

If your next scene requires an airplane don’t be silly and try to talk to Southwest, talk to Aero Mock-Ups.
