Set (film and TV scenery)

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

RKO Studios Encino, "Bedford Falls" used in Frank Capra's "It's a Wonderful Life", 1946, small town layout.

A set is artificially constructed scenery used in film and TV. In the last two cases there are many reasons to build or use a set instead of travelling to a real location, such as budget, time, the need to control the environment, or the fact that the place does not exist. Sets are normally constructed on a film studio backlot or sound stage, but any place that has been modified to give the feel of another place is a set.[1][2]
