John Uhern & Eric Olsen have over 60 years combined
experience and expertise in theater, television, tours, and
illusions, and both have worked for some of the most respected
builders in the magic industry. In 2005, they joined forces
to form Entertainment Design & Fabrication.
Their mission is to produce custom-designed, hand-constructed
illusions, and special effects through a new tradition of
craftsmanship. Just as the entertainment industry thrives on
innovation through the use of finely crafted mechanisms and
impeccable service, EDF thrives on making that innovation come
to life for you. An impressive list of clients proves that
John & Eric have already established their reputation with
other companies, but now it’s time to pass their own
innovations on to you, the customer.
Custom-built props come to life in EDF’s North Hollywood,
California shop. Their work has so impressed many that their
first ventures together were for R & B star Missy Elliott’s
world tour and Tony award-winning musical, Spamalot.
Inc. produced body parts for Oliver Stones' new motion
picture, 911. They can produce any body part,
including, but not limited to full bodies, heads, hands, and
feet. If automata is your interest, John & Eric can
restore, repair, or reproduce one for you.
As their slogan states, “Specializing in Visual Effects
Worldwide,” EDF provides the essential services from
designing and engineering to the final product while providing
the most competitive prices. This site provides a profile of
EDF, references from clients, and a comprehensive photo
gallery. We welcome inquiries on new projects and look forward
to working with you!
