  6. This project is very recent and we don't have pics from the show. This is an in-process pic of the first prototype. We made 8 shirts using 1/2 rubber rings and half titanium colored anodized aluminum. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2710394/
  7. Most of our sales are of supplies - but several times a year we take on special projects that interest us for completed projects. We've been involved in a great number of commercial and industrial projects over the years - including film! The following is just a sampling of those projects - there are many many more. We don't always get images back of the finished pieces or their use and sometimes there are non-disclosure agreements. So some in the list will not have pictures or will have poor in process pictures from in our shop. Some of the examples below were made by special customers like designers that we've worked with - credit for the completed projects are as noted. Our intention is to maintain this post going forward with all new projects. CLICK ON IMAGES to go their larger version and image gallery listing. You can scroll thru all the images in this post in our Gallery called TheRingLord Movie & Commercial Projects Movies (non-comprehensive list) When we’re hired to work with a costume designer for a movie, a lot of the time what we make is reinvented once it is on set. A good example of this is The Hobbit where we sent a staff person to re-do all of the scale pieces we had made. In some cases we don’t know what the will appear on film until we see the film. The Kid Who Would Be King (2018) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6811018/ We made 10 sheets of European 4-1 that were 1m x 1m using Saw Cut Anodized Aluminum in 16g 5/16". Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3371366/ We made 10 square panels ~2ft x 2ft using Black EPDM and Bright Aluminum in 16g 5/16". The Great Wall (2017) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2034800/ TheRingLord.com made 12 mantels and 4 shirts using half rubber and half matte black anodizing aluminum. Most of the chainmail is half 16g 1/4" EPDM rubber rings and half black anodized aluminum. Some maille in the movie is large machine made stainless fabric from MailleTec.com Suicide Squad (2016) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1386697/ We sold the costume designers 2 finished chainmail gloves used for Captain Boomerang. We also sold supplies to the costuming department for this movie - they turned them into this costume for Enchantress (also posted in our gallery) They bought ~100 ft of chainmail strap (welded stainless chainmail). They also bought ~10,000 square anodized bronze 1" tags, ~10,000 bronze jump rings and punches for making holes. Warcraft - The Beginning (2016) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0803096/ We did a HUGE amount of work for the Warcraft - The Beginning in the fall of 2013! We did a lot of custom work including custom ring profiles, custom casting and a new scale size. In total the project was about a million rings plus scale work. Here is some trivia about our work on this amazing project. - We worked with MailleTec Industries Inc. to make scale armor that used 3 sizes of scales. - The medium scale we now sell was originally custom made for the WoW movie! (http://bit.ly/1K8sReB) - We made matching scale horse barding - 2 full sets plus a bunch of scale collar pieces. - We developed the the custom "roped" and patterned triple rings we now sell for this movie. Our SXAB-DRN-TPL1212 ring (http://bit.ly/1K8sKjh) was designed custom for this movie! - We made 88 SUITS OF CHAINMAILl!! 25 were shirts and faulds sets, 60 were shirts only. Each shirt was waist length with 1/2 sleeves. Assembly used 30 chainmailers over the course of 3 months. 670,000 rings total. - We designed and made 24 sets of horse armor from bright aluminum 12g 1/2" about 350,000 rings in total bringing us up to about 1 million rings - We worked with our Chinese caster to make 3000 custom brass buckles used on armor in the movie. The Huntsman: Winters War (2016) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2381991/ We sold the costume designers for this movie silver and gold colored rings in enameled copper and anodized aluminum in 19g 532". Their designer assembled them. You can see the gold connecting the shoulder plates in the one image. Seventh Son (2016) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1121096/ We did a lot of work for Seventh Son. Not only did we get to supply the scales for the awesome Mother Malkin's Dresses made by MailleTec - we also got to make 20 full suits of hybrid polycarbonate / chain armor! We made punched 16g 3/8" stainless connected with 16g 5/16" aluminum. The armor was made using overlapping shaped and laser engraved polycarbonate plates to make a double row on the chest. We made overlapping plates to cover the arm from shoulder to elbow - but they don't appear in any costume pics. We also made shaped greaves from laser engraved polycarbonate - they are made from 3 plates connected with thin strips of chainmail that cover the shin and calf. These plates and chain are seen on the Assassins. The movie costuming staff painted these plates so they will not be clear as we made them. The red and black dress was made by MailleTec.com using of course our scales. There is a post on Facebook with lots of pics including some of the process. https://www.facebook.com/pg/MailleTec-Industries-Inc-133364950086038/photos/?tab=album&album_id=760886937333833 The dress was originally designed to be worn by Julianne Moore but she vetoed it when she tried it on. It took months to make and some extreme scalemail skills by the best in the industry - but it was cut. It appears as set decoration in the film. It has since been donated to The Museum at FIT in NY (Fashion Institute of Technology) Since the dress was vetoed Dane Duncan of MailleTec.com went to the filming location and custom made the black scalemail bodice referred to as the Double Vertebra Dress. This scale portion of the Double Vertebra Dress was made by MailleTec.com using of course our scales and is the dress used in the film. The Hobbit (2012-2014) - all 3 movies but our products got the most screen time in the 3rd movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0903624 The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1170358 The Hobbit - The Battle of Five Armies (2014) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2310332 In 2011, we were contracted by Weta Workshop to make 40 shirts for elf armor. The assembly didn't end there though! Eric Matwe, our staff member at the time and now and owner of MailleTec.com, was then flown down to the set in New Zealand and got to work with Weta costumers to re-imagine the scales and how they fit with the rest of the Elven armor. MailleTec discusses this on their site here http://mailletec.com/node/227 The scales are small champagne anodized aluminum. Night at the Museum 3 (2014) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2692250/ We made 4 shirts for Lancelot. They were made using square wire stainless steel rings and rubber.
