    #119 Props Master Dean Goodine

    Property master Dean Goodine learned hands-on from some of the best in the industry on sets like Unforgiven and has worked on The Incredible Hulk, SEE, Inception, The Assassination Of Jessie James By The Coward Robert Ford and Star Gate Atlantis and SG1. He ensures anything an actor moves or uses is ready, era-authentic and fits how the character will use it
    We talk about how he got into film, how his bad taste led him to becoming a property master, working on a Christopher Nolan set for Inception, weapons accuracy with Clint Eastwood and Gene Hackman for Unforgiven , working with Jimmy chow, Barry Sonnenfeld and Edward Aiona, his most recent film with David Lowry and the sad tragic news of Hylana Hutchins and the accidental shooting on the set of Rust and his 36 years of safety on set with the use of weapons and firearms.
    This episode is dedicated to HH and talents that will be missed.
