David Riley

Model Maker, Prop Maker, Artist, Musician

A passionate and professional model maker, artist, and musician from Sheffield, I combine my knowledge and skills gained from my BA(hons) in Design for Film & TV with experience working in the construction industry and creative sector. From my studio in Sheffield I utilise traditional techniques and craftsmanship to produce bespoke models for a variety of purposes across a range of sectors. These can be of any level of detail, from white card/plastic or foam core design models, perfect for pre-production in TV theatre and film, basic layout models for self builders to understand their new home, to detailed architectural models for display and public consultation or miniature props for animation.
