A Conversation with Prop Master and Author Dean Goodine

Dean Goodine has spent nearly four decades putting props into the hands of actors and using these items to help bring imaginary worlds to life. He has worked on everything from Oscar-nominated feature films such as Unforgiven and TV shows Stargate SGI to streaming hits like A Series of Unfortunate Events. His wife, Oscar nominated set designer and renowned painter, Janice Blackie-Goodine, has been instrumental in staging some of his movies.

In his new book, They Don’t Pay Me to Say No: My Life in Film and Television Props, Dean details the high and lows of his decades in props, giving readers a firsthand look at what it takes to deliver success on screen. It’s full of humorous stories and hair-raising moments, and it features many names that you will recognise.

On September 17, Dean will be reading from his book, telling stories of his
adventures in film, and answering questions.

Books will be available for sale and signing.
