Abandoned Dinosaur Science Lab | (Physical) Set Design

An abandoned science lab set design project I created from scratch for an assignment! I was inspired by the all-time people's favorite series about dinosaurs, Jurassic Park, particularly the idea of the laboratory. However, due to time (and also manpower) constraint, I was only able to create a particular room, an interior set, instead of the whole exterior. I designed my own version of a dino lab, and tried my best to come up with the supporting details to make it nice for the audience to fully explore within the small space.

Brief back story for setting: this particular set takes place at an abandoned science lab where dinosaurs were genetically modified and the scientists tried to 'create' them using their technology. However, one day the dinosaurs escaped -- as it's not where they're meant to belong. I'm leaving the rest of the story for the audience to fill with their imagination!

Hope you all like it as much as I enjoyed making it!

Made the baby dinos from scratch using clay, hand-painted!
The 'incubator' was made using used perfume box stuffing, and filled the bottom part using 'dirt' made using scrubbed clay.
