Dan Ohlman Shows Off His Miniature Movie Sets

Everything is a matter of perspective. Especially in the movies.

Before the invention and wide-spread use of CGI, all film sets were made by hand, some of them in miniature. Dan Ohlman, a former cabinet-maker of 15 years, fell in love with the art of the miniature in the 1980’s, and in 1989, opened the Palais de la Miniature (The Miniature Palace) in Lyons, France.
