Trick question: What do wrought iron, Charles Dickens, and Apple’s streaming service have in common? SPIRITED, that’s what!
Recently released on Apple TV+, SPIRITED is a 2022 American musical comedy based on Charles Dickens's classic story of a miserly misanthrope who is taken on a magical journey. Starring Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds, the film retells the classic 1843 novella A Christmas Carol in an entirely new (and comical) way.
Fortunately, its modern retelling doesn’t detract from its Victorian roots, which is why (some of) the sets feature opulent furnishings and decorative ironwork—elements that harken to Victorian interior design. One set in particular features a mid-1800s style wrought iron chandelier made by none other than us.
That’s right. The set design team was so enthralled by our custom wrought iron fabrication work that they reached out to see if we could lend a hand. We graciously obliged–providing six grand, double-tier chandeliers to set the scene for the entire set!
You can spot the fixtures yourself in the background of this short clip, featuring Patrick Page and Will Ferrell talking in the foreground.
