Film

For over 25 years, CMA Moldform has developed a reputation for quality, attention to detail and materials knowledge, which has lead to some exciting work manufacturing special effects, props and costumes for the film industry, including many of the Bond movies and various TV and theatre productions.

Most famously, CMA produced over one hundred optically clear helmets for the 2010 release of Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’.

The science fiction film, directed by Ridley Scott, charts a team of explorers’ battle to save the future of the human race and required the expertise of CMA Moldform to develop two types of helmet.

The company invested considerable time in Research and Development to establish the correct resin for fully functional, crystal clear, optically clear helmets. The film required CMA to produce two types of helmet – some for long term use and some that were capable of breaking during filming.

The helmets which were required to break needed to smash without harming the actor, and still be of high optical quality. These were produced from a ‘Smash’ resin that needed to be kept at a constant temperature to achieve the ‘breakaway’ effects.

CMA’s success on this project required a high specification mould design and quality material to be employed. The helmets were required to meet strict guidelines including high-strength, minimal section thickness, lightweight and most importantly, to have maximum optical clarity for close up camera shots.
In total, over one hundred helmets were produced and worn during the filming process.
