Plot Synopsis[]

After discovering her family heritage in Summerville, Oklahoma, Callie Spengler (Carrie Coon) and her children Trevor (Finn Wolfhard) and Phoebe (Mckenna Grace) move to the old firehouse in Manhattan, New York that was formerly the headquarters of the Ghostbusters. Along with Callie's boyfriend Gary Grooberson (Paul Rudd), the Spenglers restart the family ghostbusting business, much to the chagrin of Mayor Walter Peck (William Atherton), an old nemesis of the original Ghostbusters. Family friend "Podcast" (Logan Kim) and original Ghostbuster Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) broadcast an internet show called "Repossessed" out of Ray's bookstore, where they examine artifacts for possible paranormal possession. Nadeem Razmaadi (Kumail Nanjiani) brings in a brass orb that houses an ancient evil, Garraka, whom Dr. Hubert Wartzki (Patton Oswalt) warns will command an army of ghosts; such as those housed in the Containment Unit in the firehouse basement. Growing pains are felt among the Spengler family, with 15-year-old Phoebe and 18-year-old Trevor both wanting to be treated like adults. The dysfunctional family dynamic leads both youngsters to make new friends. Phoebe makes a new friend (Emily Alyn Lind); while Trevor has encounters with Slimer, a gluttonous spirit living in the firehouse attic. The Spenglers, father figure Gary, "Podcast", Nadeem, original Ghostbuster Ray, new Ghostbusters Engineer Corps lead Lars Pinfield (James Acaster) and intern Lucky Domingo (Celeste O'Connor), and the returning team of Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson), and Janine Melnitz (Annie Potts), all join together to stop Garraka from using his Death Chill to fulfill the prophesy of bringing about a second Ice Age.

On April 7, 2024, Luke Whitelock posted behind-the-scenes photos of the construction of the Firehouse second floor. The main challenge for Whitelock was where place the windows.

Whitelock employed a few cheats like bringing the wall "forward to master the window, put lots of dressing in the corner to cover ourselves." The ceiling heights were also different and Whitelock countered that by introducing a picture rail which draws a person's eye to that line and tricks their brain into not noticing how high the room is.

An excerpt from the article quotes Gil Kenan taking about the new villain in the movie saying, "But we are now in the post-Gozerian era of the Ghostbusters saga, so that means we're able to stretch out and create an entirely new mythology. And that's thrilling as a storyteller, because there are all-new and terrifying stakes with fresh visual references to draw on." He recalls the excitement he felt halfway through the first morning of directing one of the big scenes. He is currently finishing the movie in post production. A behind-the-scenes still of Peter and Gary in the Firehouse basement was included.[596]

On December 21, 2023, the February 2024 issue of Empire was released. It contains a two page feature for Frozen Empire on page 10 and 11 of the issue. Other Kenan quotes are, "We see them step up to the challenge of ghostbusting as a family a completely new context and on a much larger canvas. In ways big and small, the new setting drives the story and our characters" and explains how the Death Chill "is the way our villain is able to devastate the world. It's a power that is harnessed by the thermodynamic property of the fear we all feel when confronted by the unknown and the terrifying... but amped-up and channelled into a weapon in away we haven't seem in Ghostbusters before." The article also mentions the movie takes place "a year or two after the events of Afterlife" and has a still of Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, Mckenna Grace, and Finn Wolfhard in flightsuits in poses in a room about to film a scene.[597]

Gil Kenan touts it is a scary and funny film and on the movie's villain said, "We've moved past the mythology of Gozer, which defined Ghostbusters and was rekindled in Afterlife as a way to close that initial loop. We have finally freed ourselves to now introduce a whole new menace, and with that, we've created a new mythology and we've expanded how deep and how frightening and how dangerous a villain can be in one of these stories."[609][610]

On February 21, 2024, SFX #376 (March 2024) went for sale on digital platforms and newsstands.

They play acting as parents to teenage children. Can Gary and Callie make it? What kinds parents will they be? That's what they're figuring out" and recalling, "The first time I walked into Callie's bedroom, her bed was made and it was very neat. I said, 'No, no, no. This should be much more hapless.' This woman does not have her act together." Kenan talks about how the production designer Eve Stewart and her team of art directors going to New York to scan and measure the original firehouse from top to bottom as well as the way textures of the asphalt give way to the cobblestone right in front of the cement driveway, Mckenna Grace remembers the attention to detail like finding mugshots and business cards in Janine's drawer, the Sewer Dragon sequence was the first thing filmed, Kenan talking about taking you to the edge of terror, but also pivoting into a moment of pure joy or comedy, writing Nadeem, Hubert, and Lars with Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt, and James Acaster in mind, and Potts calls it a real return to the roots of the original movie.

Trivia[]

Trivia in Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire[]

  • There were around 1400 visual effects shots done for the movie by Sony Pictures Imageworks, DNEG, and Barnstom VFX.[763]
  • The movie begins with a quote from Robert Frost's "Fire and Ice" poem.
  • "Fire and Ice" was not scripted. After the movie was screened for the first time to Sony, Tom Rothman suggested the poem.[764]
  • In storyboards, the opening scene was set in 1903 whereas in the movie, it is set in 1904.[765]
  • Hook and Ladder Company 8 leaving the Firehouse was filmed on the last day of production.[766]
  • For the 1904 scene, the following changes were made: the modern traffic lights were replaced with a Victorian-era gas-powered street lamp, the modern road was covered up by a layer of dirt and a mound of earth to cover the bicycle lanes to help connote work was starting on digging out the subway, the blue doors were painted to cherry red, gold leaf was added back to the cartouche above the arch as well as the bollards on either side of the door were given a bronze color, the Hook & Ladder sign was added back, hessian blinds were added to the windows, made the iron gates look like timber gates, and as an in-joke, the property across the firehouse was left under construction to make it seem like the location was always under some form of construction through the century. Set decoration sourced the vintage steam engine used by the firefighters.[767]
  • The main front doors opening was a practical effect. SFX crew members stood by either side of the doors and used a pulley system.[768]
  • In real life, in 1904, Hook & Ladder No. 8 was twice as big in size whereas in the scene, it is the size of the building in the present.
  • The firefighters drive past a carriage bearing the name "Tully & Son Haulage Co."
  • On December 22, 2023, a holiday Yule Log was posted on the Ghostbusters YouTube depicting Slimer reading "The Manhattan Adventurer's Society" with a spine label for the the New York City Public Library Lions.[769]
  • The Manhattan Adventurer's Society is inspired by historical organizations established at the beginning of the twentieth century such as the Explorers Club and Adventurer's Club of New York.
  • The choice for creating the Manhattan Adventurer's Society was connected to Gil Kenan's wedding which took place at the Explorers Club.[770]
  • The Manhattan Adventurers Society set was at Winnersh Film Studios in the United Kingdom during Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire production.[771]
  • The staircase and practical smoke effects at the door to the ballroom were filmed at the Tring Park School for the Performing Arts.[772]
  • Initially, the order was for 20 wax figures of frozen adventurers to be made. Since there had to be one made for three takes, that would have made the total 60. That was infeasible with the short time frame the special effects team had to support actors dressed like adventurers were brought in and the amount of wax figures was brought down to a smaller amount.[773][774]
  • The first frozen adventurer made was a dummy that was dressed. Two professional mime artists were scanned then the CNC hot wire foam cutting was used and most of the body of a frozen adventurer was moulded from it. Heads and hands were 3D printed from the scan. The adventurer with his hand outstretched and the one at the gramophone were made from these scans.[775][776][777][778][779]
  • One of the painted legs of the frozen adventurers broke but since it was positioned behind the dining table, wood was used to replace the legs.[780][781][782]
  • The body of the frozen adventurer at the gramophone broke due to being on the set for four hours in the middle of June.[783]
  • Frozen people that shatter in the movie were made from several departments cooperating. The VFX team and makeup and hair departments worked with actors to make them look frozen. The VFX team used hundreds of camera in different directions to photograph them. The photographs were used to build computer graphics versions. The special effects team used them to build full figures made from a silicon rubber missing an ingredient to prevent bonding. As a result, the figures would be brittle. With a mechanism inside the figure with wires and cables and a pneumatic ram, they are safely shattered without harming actors.[784][785][786][787][788]
  • The gag of the frozen hand continuing to turn the crank was achieved by placing an RC circuit in both the frozen hand and the crank.[789]
  • A portrait of a younger Ivo Shandor is seen in the frozen ballroom of the Manhattan Adventurers Society.
  • The Shandor portrait in the ballroom appears at Wonderverse Chicago in the speakeasy area.

  • Callie's necklace has a fourth star added on to account for Gary Grooberson.[802]
  • Callie's flight suit was not made correctly by the company hired to make them so costume designer Alexis Forte had the fabric pulled and sent to another company and two flight suits were made in-house with the deadline approaching.[803]
  • One of the officers in the police car is holding a Dunkin' Donuts bag.
  • Trevor alludes to having driven Ecto-1 before, during the events of Afterlife.
  • In storyboards, the taxi that lost its roof top advertisement via Proton Stream lost the top frame of the car as well.[804]
  • The RTV was a practical prop and the bay door in the Ecto-1 was practical but once it was on the street, the RTV was a CG animated version.[805]

  • For Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, the three story Firehouse set was built at Shinfield Studios in Reading, United Kingdom.[813]
  • During construction of the Firehouse set, sample boards of green tiles were assembled. Five or six tiles all with slightly different greens were chosen to give done movement to the wall and to prevent it looking like one flat color. All green tiles were real tiles but above the dado line, plaster sheet was used for the white tiles. The tiles were aged and glazed to take 40% of the shine off to kill any reflections. The crew then used a hammer and cracked a few and knocked the corners off some tiles.[814]
  • Work on the Firehouse set started with drawing on December 5, 2022. Prefabrication started in January 2023. Steelwork went in on the first week of February 2023. The build took place from February 13 to May 9, 2023.[815]
  • Art Director Luke Whitelock started work on the movie on December 10, 2022. He used LiDAR scans of the Fire Station #23 interior and of the Hook & Ladder No.8 exterior and footage of Fire Station #23 done by the So-Cal and Denver Ghostbusters fan groups to design a Firehouse composite set that involved trying to fit Fire Station #23 into Hook & Ladder No. 8. It was essentially making 160 feet fit in a 96 foot long footprint. In addition he had to make sure there was 60 feet of real estate to the front of the Firehouse in order to film Ecto-1 making its dramatic turn down Varick Street.[816][817] Whitelock modeled the set in SketchUp and did construction drawings in LayOut.[818] The overall length had to be around 111 feet. He shaved 27 feet from deadspace behind Peter's office, the front of Fire Statin No. 23 had a large vestibule so 10 feet was cut from that, 6 feet was taken from where the jog happens, and they took six inches out of each bay across the length.[819]
  • Art Director Luke Whitelock went to Hook & Ladder No. 8 in New York to take measurements of the Hook & Ladder sign. At the time, the Firehouse set in the United Kindgom was 80% done.[820]
  • During pre-production, Peter's office wasn't going to built fully as it appeared in past movies. Instead it was going to serve as the family's storage space from when they moved into the Firehouse.[821]
  • For financial and practical reasons, the half moon window behind Peter's office was omitted.[822]
  • For the second floor, Luke Whitelock had to bring the wall forward the master the windows then put in a lot of dressing in the corner. He countered the difference in ceiling heights by introducing a picture rail. For actor access and safety requirements, there is a walk off door opening to the left behind a pole.[823]
  • Phoebe wears Camper Brutus Boots in Burgundy.
  • Phoebe mentions how she saved the world in Ghostbusters: Afterlife and how Callie and Gary were possessed by the Terror Dogs.
  • The two arcades on the second floor are Missile Command and Star Castle. Both appeared in the first movie.

  • The charging devices in the Proton Lockers are set to blink red when the Proton Packs are charging and to blink green when charging is done.[828][829]
  • While designing the Proton Locker, Art Director Luke Whitelock briefly toyed with replacing the original roller shutter with a decommissioned bank vault under the notion that after Egon had taken all the equipment down to Summerville, Ray put in a more secure storage space. It didn't match the space so the original roller shutter was revisited. Whitelock found company that made a similar shutter but the head piece needed to match the original film so the art deparment made a fibreglass version that sat over the top of the modern slimline roller head.[830]
  • The idea for the locker was that the packs could be charged in there but the whole things was a lift that could lower down into the basement for repairs and to move several used Traps to the Containment Unit. To release the packs, the actors were taught how to release several safety switches and about the external red and green light system to at least inform their actions at the locker.[831]
  • Prop modeller Ellen Gould was put in charge of making all the Traps. James Hunt worked on the pedal. Gould rigged some of the Trap mechanisms along with Martin Gaskell, Douglas Hedges, and members of the SFX team.

  • The Third Floor came with the Mini-Puft set pieces of them hurting each other, in both previsualization and postvisualization.[842]
  • The books near the Mini-Pufts on the table are "Flying Saucers on the Attack" by Harold T. Wilkins, "Flying Saucers Are Hostile" by Brad Steiger & Joan Whritenour, and "Strangers from the Skies" by Brad Steiger.

  • There is a Manhattan City Bank sticker on the Ray's Occult counter.
  • The staging and movement of the Death Chill moving down the street towards the Firehouse is a nod to the Evil Dead franchise.[845] The shot was the first time low altitude cameras were allowed to be flown through New York City.[846]
  • The street vendor has Sprite, Fanta, Diet Coke, and Coke.
  • Janine mentions the East River.
  • While heading to the attic, Trevor trips on the stairs - a callback to his occasional lack of coordination in Afterlife like his bad landing when he used the fire pole.
  • Slimer's trash pile was redone four times before it was approved.[847]
  • Armorer Doug McCarthy was instructed to create an exact match to Slimer's ectoplasm that was used in the first movie. Gil Kenan even put it on his hands to test the translucency. Once they got it, McCarthy made various thicknesses in the required colors for different shots.[848]
  • A batch of standard ectoplasm used on Frozen Empire was created with mixing 24 grams of food thickener made of plant cellulose with 2.6 grams of green coloring, slowly tapping the mix in 1 liter of cold water and 1 liter of hot water, and using a mixer then when it thickens, letting it sit for 12 to 24 hours.[849][850][851][852]
  • 30 grams total was used to make ectoplasm that drips from the Firehouse ceiling.[853]

  • The people worked on the Slimer puppets for Frozen Empire were sculptors Leland Stewart, Danny Wagner, and Tanner White, foam by Bill Fesh, Mold Supervisor was Brian Rae, mechanical design was by Bill Sturgeon, the actor was Kevin Mangold, puppeteers were Geoff Redknap and Robin Guiver, seaming was by Lisa Fornadley, fabrication was by Bill Bryan, and paint was by Mario Torres.[859]
  • Foam from the original Slimer puppet was grounded up and put into the mold of the puppet for Frozen Empire.[860]
  • When Trevor encounters Slimer in the attic, he is wearing an adult classic Martha's Vineyard shortsleeve T-shirt in Beach Rose Overdye from The Black Dog Tavern in Massachusetts.
  • Trevor's Martha's Vineyard shirt is also meant as a nod to the place where the first movie's script was worked on.[861][862]
  • For the shot of Trevor being slimed by Slimer in the Firehouse attic, a slime rig was worn. The part worn on the back has two pressure tanks and a vessel between the tanks for the slime. When the valve goes, the slime goes into tubes in the back and/or front into a bowl that reverses its direction to simulate the act of being slimed. It took several weeks of testing and several test subjects to get the rig right.[863][864]
  • Work on building practical ghosts started in Fall 2022.[865]
  • The Slimer puppet was scanned by Clear Angle Studios with one of their photogrammetry booths. Sony Pictures Imageworks built a 3D asset to match the practical puppet.[866]
  • For Slimer's transparency, self-illuminating was considered over scene-lit but as the VFX team started compositing the Slimer puppet and CG version with more of a flat lit lighting pass, it didn't work in the scene. A shift to scene lighting happened soon after. VFX supervisor Geoff Baumann resisted putting too much glow and transparency in order to adhere to Gil Kenan's desire for detail and fidelity.[867]
  • Phoebe sets up chess at Washington Square Park which had a cameo in Ghostbusters II's second montage.
  • Gil Kenan gave "Sylvie and the Ghost" (1946) to Emily Alyn Lind to watch for preparation. The story was about the ghost of a man who fell in love with a woman who reminded him of his love interest in his past life.[868]
  • Phoebe sets up a chess board in Washington Square Park in hopes of making contact with Egon like in Afterlife.
  • The chess scene was filmed at Russell Square in London.[869]
  • The chess gag was done with cables and radio-controlled servos.[870]
  • Emily Alyn Lind wore a "short, blunt-cut" red wig with bangs for a week of filming but it was scrapped and the scenes were re-shot.[871]
  • Melody's flames was a mixture of brandy and hand sanitizer that was spread all over a dummy then lit. The VFX team filmed it. The visual effects house superimposed it onto Emily Alyn Lind in the scene.[872]
  • Melody's dress was inspired by actress Lillian Gish's iconic costumes.[873]
  • Mckenna Grace does not consider Phoebe a romantic person and thinks Melody was just a person who made her feel seen and they connected but they're relationship is open to interpretation. Gil Kenan commented they were two people in search of a resolution and a kinship forms between them then they both develop and grow. Emily Alyn Lind called it two old souls on a deeper level beyond labels.[874][875][876]
  • Emily Alyn Lind didn't know the character she was portraying was a ghost until right when filming started.[877]
  • Emily Alyn Lind didn't have to wear anything like a mocap suit for her filming.[878]
  • There initially were plans for Melody to always be floating and would be achieved with a parallelogram but the idea was abandoned.[879]
  • Melody had around 150 VFX shots total.[880]
  • There are three versions of Phoebe and Melody scenes: one with them both, one with Phoebe by herself, and one by Melody by herself. Most of the takes chosen were with the both of them because that was the best performance. The VFX team would rotoscope Melody out, clean up the backgrounds, and insert the finished Melody back in. A digital version of Melody was also made but hardly used.[881]
  • Emily Alyn Lind didn't see the finished version of Melody until she recorded ADR because Gil Kenan wanted the performance to be more human than ghostly.[882]
  • When the chess pieces move, Egon's theme from Ghostbusters: Afterlife is reused. He first communicated with Phoebe through chess.
  • Melody does the Petrov's Defense.
    • White plays Pawn to E4 (King's opening)
    • Black plays Pawn to E5 (Still King's opening)

  2. In an email exchange between Paul Rudoff of the Spook Central website and Eric Reich of Ghost Corps on May 8, 2024, Reich revealed, "They are going to correct on digital, and hopefully in time for physical. At one point it was called the Paranormal Discovery Center which is how the mistake occurred."
  3. In an email exchange between Ghostbusters Wiki administrator Mrmichaelt and Eric Reich of Ghost Corps on April 2, 2024, Reich confirmed, "I have no idea who did this magazine, it was never something run by Ghost Corps, it was definitely a mistake cause he was never in the film or even discussed to be part of the film to my knowledge."

They'll be at the firehouse again tomorrow, but without the car—sounds like for more background stuff, maybe reference imaging like they seemed to be doing on Thursday. According to one crewmember, all the shots they've been working on over these past couple weeks are for one chase scene, which'll be part of the movie's opening."

We did not have it in our script. The very first time we played the movie for the studio, Tom Rothman, the president of Columbia Pictures, came up to us and suggested that we should look up the poem "Fire and Ice." I read it in school and kind of remembered, but when I pulled it up and put it up in front of the film, it was just incredible what it did for activating, not just the thematic or more literal plot strands of the film, but the way that it gave a deeper grounding to some of the forces of good and evil in the story. It felt very Ghostbusters to invoke that cataclysmic, almost Biblical allegory. So it was a suggestion that spoke to a higher art and was an instant yes the first time I tried it in the movie."

Modern day first, redressed for ice and finally the 1903 revamp, which was a lot of fun to bring to life. We only had a week to do it so here's some art department tricks we employed to change the firehouse. Firstly we removed the modern traffic lights and replaced them with a Victorian gas powered street lamp. The tarmac with all its modern road markings was covered in a layer of dirt and we built up a mound of earth to cover the bike lanes to make it look like they were starting to dig out the subway. We painted the blue doors back to the cherry red colour as a nod to the modern day firehouse. The Cartouche above the arch got its gold leaf back. As well as the bollards either side of the door, which were given a bronze colour. We reinstated the Hook and Ladder sign and I even added some nice brass stars to the circular motifs (you can see them in one of the photos) our designer decided against them though. We put hessian blinds in the windows and clad the iron gates in timber to make it look like a timber gate. We retained the construction hoarding across the road as the gag was that this place has always been under construction. Set dec sourced the vintage steam engine and my painters and construction department (second Slide) made good on all fronts. This was the last day shooting on the firehouse."

I got married in a place in New York City that was called the Explorer's Club. Still there. And it was an old, almost British-style gentleman's club but one specifically rooted in gentlemen adventures who would come back from their exploits around the world with some sort of artifact and then they would sit around in a sort of clubey way with brandy in their hand and someone would hold court and talk about the whale penis they dragged back from Antarctica. And so this place is kind of an extraordinary feast for the eyes full of stuffed animals, rare artifacts, shrunken heads, little jars of teeth and stuff. It's amazing and cool and elegant and interested and connected to a version of the past we don't really get to engage with often and it felt like a perfect setting for the start of this story."

  784. Spook Central "Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire Production Notes" 3/22/2024 Line reads: "To pull that off, again, the visual effects team started with real life, working closely with the makeup and hair departments, then passed the baton to the physical effects team. After makeup and hair added frost to faces and costumes to make the actors appear frozen, the VFX team scanned them -- photographed them with hundreds of cameras from different directions. With that information, they could build a computer graphics version of those characters. From that model, two things could happen. First, the special effects team could build an extremely fragile model of the character."

And we started going in there in stills. In development we pushed the look to look like the artwork which had lot of complexity to it. A lot of refraction through the surface, you get a scattering through the bone structure so you get a nearer plane. Skeletal structure would be sharper and further through the surfaces to get more of an abstraction. A scattering effect. And ultimately, it wasn't working the shot. We were going through versions with Gil and Geoff. And we were scratching our heads 'Why isn't this working?' and we looked back at the '84 movie and there was the ghost that came out of sewer--I'm not remembering the name of that particular character--there's a ghost that comes out of the sewer that's kinda--I'm sorry not out of the sewer, out of the subway, and we're like that's our inspiration. In comp, we started playing with the layers and trying to get that f--again it's that optical compositing look and he had done this whole thing with the dragon, a vapor that trails off of him with a lot of complexity and in the end, we ended up mixing a lot of that back and just wanted to capture that feeling of the '84 movie that optical composited feel."

  801. Blue Screen Reveals "Alexis Forte: The Costumes of Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire" 6/8/2024Alexis Forte says: "Recreating the jumpsuits for the new films was arguably the most daunting task for the costume department since the originals from the 1980s were neither in the Sony archives nor did the Reitmans own them. Luckily, the Ghostbusters fandom is a loyal one, and the costume department was able to contact a collector who owned one of the originals–but that was just the first piece of the puzzle. Forte explained, “We laid it out and measured all the pockets. The original suits were bought off the shelf, and unfortunately they no longer make that exact model ... There is no 100% cotton ripstop in the modern ones, which are instead made of smarter tech fabrics, with different pockets and zippers. So instead of altering the store-bought suits, we just made them all from scratch.” Then she added about the aging process, “Normally, before you make something, you wash the fabric so that the seams don’t seize up after you sew. But for this, we made the suits without washing the fabric so that when you sew all the pieces together and then throw it in the washing machine, the fabric would shrink, creating little puckering on all the seams to make it look like it's been very lived in”."

Line reads: "The iconic interior was meticulously recreated over three storeys at the UK's own Shinfield Studios in Reading, and the cast clearly had a ball exploring it ("I honestly wanted to do an MTV Cribs-style video in the Firehouse," laughs Mckenna Grace)."
  814. whitelock design limited instagram 3/30/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "We often put together little sample boards. In this case looking at those iconic green tiles it was important to get a match but we didn’t want it to look flat so we chose 5 or 6 tiles all with slightly different greens to give done movement to the wall and stopping looking like one flat colour. Often we use plaster sheets to replicate tile runs as real tiles can be expensive but it was decided that all the green tiles in the firehouse should be real, above the dado line we used plaster sheet for the white tiles. They were then aged and glazed to take 40% of the shine off to kill reflections. Then we went round with a hammer and cracked a few, knocked the corners off and voila the Firehouse tiles were the first finishes completed."
  815. whitelock_design_limited instagram 4/27/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "From starting the drawing period on 5th December 2022 to prefabrication in January. The Steelwork went in during the first week of February and build was from 13th of February to 9th May."
  816. whitelock_design_limited instagram 3/19/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "I can’t tell you the thrill of getting to Art Direct something as iconic as the Ghostbusters Firehouse. I started on the film sometime around December 10th 2022. My first task was to take the LiDAR scan of Firehouse no 23 in Los Angeles and get it to fit inside the footprint of Hook and Ladder 8 in New York. Some people probably don’t realise that in the original movies all interior scenes were shot at FH 23 in LA whilst all exteriors were shot in NY. We were going to attempt a composite set for the ground floor where we see both interior and exterior for the first time together on one set. The only problem is working out how to fit a 160’ long set into a 96’ long footprint and get it to fit on a stage where we also required at least 60’ of real estate to the front of the Firehouse in order for Ecto 1 to do its dramatic turn down Varick Street. So the first few days were spent working this out. I knew we needed to get drawings out after the Christmas break and that meant less than 3 weeks to get the lions share of the 3D model complete this included the Ground Floor interior and the second and third floor composite of all the living spaces."
  817. whitelock_design_limited instagram 3/25/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "A video was uploaded to this site back in 2010 when a branch of Ghostbusters fans (the Denver Ghostbusters I believe) invaded the location and took loads of video footage of the ground floor and upper floors that were used in the original movie. Like a giant jigsaw I was able to take screen grabs of their footage and piece together info like what the newel posts on the staircase look like close up, what the mouldings on the stairs looked like. The patina on the wood of the lockers, the size and position of the drain covers in the floor, by studying the heights of the people I could scale the height of the tile dado, what’s inside the roller shutter. And best of all the upstairs rooms for which we used the panelling and introduced it into Gary and Callie’s bedroom verbatim. This is a small sample of the literal thousands of screen grabs I used to piece this all together. The colour of the vinyl floor around the pole holes, the lustre of the brass, how chipped the paint is around the safety rails. The hairline cracks in the glaze on the tiles. The brick floor - yes it’s a brick floor. The plaster details in the ceiling, the arch above the main doors - which was covered over in the original film with a plug however we see it revealed in the post credit sequence of “Afterlife” so it’s making decisions like should we keep the arch or not that define what we do as set designers, you are telling a story with the scenery. Filling in the gaps of the last 40 years. Are the lockers still there? Would they have replaced the roller shutter (more on this in another post) all fun talking points and one of the most fun and interesting research jobs I’ve ever had the pleasure of undertaking."
  818. whitelock_design_limited instagram 3/23/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "Yes that’s right I modelled the entire ground floor interior and exterior as well as the first and second floor composite sets in SketchUp and I did all of the construction drawings in LayOut. SketchUp is an incredibly powerful program when used correctly it beats all the competitors hands down, don’t let anyone tell you that this program is not the real deal. Not only did I do all my construction drawings from this model, I was able to share it with other set designers in the team who were working on other parts of the building in programs like Vectorworks and Rhino with no problem. We did CNC cultist from the model, Steelwork fabrication drawings, 3D printed elements that were also taken from a LiDAR scan all inside Sketchup not to mention some great renders that were done with VRay for SketchUp."
  819. whitelock_design_limited instagram 3/24/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "So prior to me starting on the picture, there was a LiDAR scan commissioned of both the LA Firehouse interior and the New York Firehouse exterior. This is the LiDAR scan of the ground floor of the LA Firehouse. My job at this stage was to work out how we would fit the interior into the ground floor footprint of the New York Firehouse. Luckily they were both the same width on the interior. But the length proved a problem. LA firehouse is 157’ long with the New York interior being just about 72’. I had to work out how to take some real estate out without compromising the original feel and scale. Firstly we were able to chip around 27’ out. We did this as the original location Venkmans office had 27’ of dead space behind it going to a secondary large exit door. So we just bought that wall right up behind Venkmans office wall. Secondly the front of the firehouse in LA had a large vestibule at the front which enabled us to cut a a further 10’ from the overall. I then took 6’ from where the jog happens. I needed the overall length to be around 111’ to fit the stage so the rest of the space was saved by taking around 6” out of each bay across the length. So what you see on screen is very very close to the original."
  820. whitelock_design_limited instagram 3/8/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "As the Art Director for the main Firehouse sets I was very privileged to be asked to go to New York and give our New York team a heads up with some of our set designs (things that would need to be recreated in New York that we had built on the set - no spoilers) I also needed to check some measurements one of which was the size of the letters on the Hook & Ladder sign. As our construction manager climbed the ladder it took every ounce of strength to not call out “You don’t think it’s too subtle, Marty? You don’t think people are going to drive by and not see the sign?” a super surreal moment and one which will be hard to forget. Our set back in the UK was about 80% complete by this point and I couldn’t not show the Fire Fighters @officialghostbustershq what we had built so far. Safe to say they were blown away with the level of detail we went into and I can’t wait for everyone to see this movie."

Extraplasm Podcast "Episode 81: "This Old Firehouse" With Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire Art Director Luke Whitelock" 1:15:29-1:15:51 5/1/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "There was a time on pre-production where they weren't going use or utilize Venkman's office. They were just going to put storage boxes in there and say like you know 'the guys have moved in and this is where they're storing all their stuff' I was like 'you gotta dress it like Bill's or Venkman's office'."
  822. whitelock_design_limited instagram 3/26/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "So already in the first week we hit the ground running. I need to have a full set of Plans and elevations ready to go by January 4th. What I tend to do is block out the design in SketchUp, I'll set up all my scenes (plans, sections and camera views) keeping everything pretty loose at this stage. I'll then take this basic model straight into Layout and set up my viewports. This is a great way to work because once it's set up in Layout I can just keep chipping away at the design in Sketchup and the drawing will automatically update as I go because it's dynamically linked to the model. That also means that at any given time I can quickly produce a WIP drawing for either discussion purposes or basic costing. I think these first few passes were working out how I can nick some real estate back out of the length without compromising the design. You'll see at this stage we had the original half moon window behind Venkmans office. You only see this for a split second I. The original movie when the OGs are viewing the firehouse for the first time. We decided to omit the window from a cost point of view. As a lot of the practical lighting will be rigged high in the ceiling it was also unlikely we’d ever see high and wide enough to see the window. So you see as we’re designing we are constantly adapting the design to suit factors like access, lighting, SFX rigs stage space, stage height and budget. This is also a fun part of the design process because I get to model up those iconic lockers, or Venkmans office and I was very lucky to see original drawings of the iron columns that survived since 84. You’ll notice the ones in this model are just proxy ones."
  823. Whitelock Design 4/7/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "But the challenge for me was down to where we place the windows. As you see on slide 2 those windows (camera right) are not the large New York firehouse windows. And when that back wall is plotted into position based on the LA footprint the wall cuts right through where the windows are. So a few cheats were required, bring the wall forward to master the window, put lots of dressing in the corner to cover ourselves. The ceiling heights were also different. I countered that by introducing a picture rail which draws your eye to that line and tricks your brain into not noticing how high the room is. The walk off door opening to the left behind the pole needed to be there for access and fire safety. Placing it behind the poles means less attention is drawn to it as it was never established before. By not adding a door we are drawing even less attention to it. So lots of little tricks are employed when we want to recreate something but also need to add changes."

I got so far as drawing it up but it just didn't work in the space aesthetically so we reverted to the original roller shutter. I found a company that made a similar shutter but the head piece needed to match the original film so we made a fibreglass version that sat over the top of the modern slimline roller head."

But then once we started compositing either the puppet or CG with more of a flat lit lighting pass, it didn't marry to the scene as much. So we ended up shifting a little bit more towards scene lighting. The other thing is, I am not usually a big fan of glows. It's something that often is just added on in comp just to get a little extra something out of it. But it was something I had to embrace on this project because Gil said, 'It's Ghostbusters. There's glow.' We did find our way eventually. Still, the opacity and glow was a challenge because Gil wanted to maintain detail and fidelity, but then the more glow we added or the more transparent something became, the less detail or fine edge detail we had in something."

I had a wig on for like a week of filming, and then we trashed it, reshot everything, because it just felt like, it's not Melody. There was a lot of give-and-take, different camera tests. Like, is this too modern? Is it okay? Can she feel timeless at the same time as being witty and funny and able to get along with her peer, who might be technically younger, so it feels right?

In the end, it seemed to me that the best way we could do this would be to give her the essence of a silent film star -- I wanted her costume to recall Lillian Gish's iconic costumes. She's wearing a little vest, which could be a twenties vest, with a little semi-ballet dress she wears underneath. Then, she wears heavy boots and socks, which she could have picked up in the street. I wanted the sense that her clothes didn't look like anything that you'd ever been able to buy in a shop, but somehow it almost organically evolved as part of who she was."

That is the core distinction that defines Phoebe and Melody. There is an obstacle to entry that is greater than anything like gender or class or language. You can't get much further apart than existing on different dimensional planes, and so that was what was dramatically compelling. That defined, more than anything, the approach of how to craft an arc between these two characters, where clearly there is a pull towards one another. Both are searching. Both are in need of finding a way to fulfill something that is unresolved. And in ways big and small, they find a kinship that allows both of them to develop and grow. That was the primary driver. I'm really proud of a nuanced human-ghost relationship in a film, irrespective of the normal dynamics that define adolescent relationships in films."

They're both outsiders in their own ways. They're both old souls, figuratively and literally. And since physical touch was off the table, that can get pretty irritating in the beginning of any relationship. So (Phoebe) just wanted to be able to be close to this person. Your question is basically, "Is this a romantic relationship or a friendship?" and a lot of people are asking that. But the beauty of this movie is that it's just two souls connecting. The fact that they literally can't touch is a metaphor for their deeper soul connection that defies labels. There's elements to it that do feel like romantic gestures, and while Mckenna is younger than me (in real life), these characters are still two kids in a lot of ways. They're outsiders who feel different and like they're not heard. And now they're connecting on this grandiose level in two different dimensional planes, and they're just trying to figure out this world together. So I like that we didn't define it as one thing or another. Sometimes, when people do that, it ruins it. It's too concrete and absolute, and they're so not absolute as characters."

Often times the editor Nathan would choose the one with them together because obviously that's the best performance so we would have to roto Melody out from the plate, clean up the background to remove her so we could see through to behind her and sometimes that means Phoebe so we'd have to clean up where Melody is over Phoebe so you could see through to Phoebe and then rotomating her and you would do all the work-you would light all the passes to get her in and we had a digital version of her but we really didn't use the digital version of her much.

My second audition, they wanted me to improvise, because Ghostbusters has a long history of improvisation, but part of that improv was to improvise about this fictional technology. I couldn't probably improvise about real scientific technology that exists. I had to now improvise and tell them how this fake stuff works, and that puts you really on the spot. I had to hit the ground running with that. When we were filming, you just memorize the lines first and then you try and understand what it actually means, so you can talk about it with some sort of conviction."

Wanted to incorporate some new elements to help our scientists out. Let's remove the elbow pads for the lab, but we created new seams in the sleeve so there's a shadow elbow pad. We added some new pockets at chest to keep tools and pens at the ready, swapped the velcro at the waist straps for brass snaps, shortened our nozzle and of course they have their own new patch."

But I think it was open to other options. Black ended up looking too sleek but I feel like we-something that we do with the original Ghostbusters suits is that we have fabric-we make the Ghostbusters suits and then we wash them so that all the seaming puckers up and looks aged whereas if you pre-wash the cotton they'll already be pre-shrunk but we like to shrink after we make the suits so it doesn't look perfect. So it does a lot of the pre-aging for us that way and so we played around with the black as well where I got the tan cotton ripstop and dyed it black. We got a black cotton ripstop and we did a white and dyed it different colors of black. So we played around with the shades. And it turned out the best option was just a black cotton ripstop that we make the suits out of and then being to wash it and create the puckering and seaming at the seams and wash it with enzymes to pull out the color."

Cause we didn't want to use the elbow pad but how can I nod to them needing to be there without using them and adding some extra pockets that a scientist could keep little tools and pencils and what not. And also from working so much with the suits now I do have to say the velcro at the waist band becomes problematic sometimes when you wash them and stuff. So I was like 'This is a great opportunity to change that' and go with the brass snaps that we have at the brass zippers and change it at the cuffs, too, sort of have these details that are a lot cleaner so that things would get attached to the suit at the lab."

I felt like while I was making big giant movie, I was making a short film that was really personal and really fun.

To deliver this, Armitage and his crew employed a blend of 2D hieroglyphic-style imagery, meticulously rendered in grayscale, before being transposed into a three-dimensional realm – as if they had been carved into stone. Realistic textures mimicking rock surfaces and cracks were infused alongside dynamic 3D camera movements, guiding us through the narrative. Armitage, in collaboration with our 3D artists, rigorously tested iterations of this idea until they found an approach that struck the perfect balance between impact and efficiency."

She went through hundreds of pages and found one interesting marking on a log book that said "70 mm librarian" and that's kind of all it said and she went through the work of having that archival bit of film pulled from the mines wherever they store this, like Utah, and we got in a box, a pristine roll of 70 mm film that had not been unspooled since 1984. We put it on the big screen at Sony and we had no idea what we would find on there and the image flickered to life and it was the most extraordinary experience. It felt like we had just pushed a button on the DeLorean to travel to 1984. There was raw incredible pristine 70 mm material of Richard Edlund, the visual effects supervisor on the '84 film, filming the librarian shushing the Ghostbusters. So we were able to use takes that have never been used before in Ghostbusters to create a new performance out of that archival material and it felt like movie magic."

They don't work. They take more time than you expect them to. There's challenges you didn't expect. And I think with Garraka, it was no different. How thick was the vapor? How much movement would it have?

I was drawn to this red because of the "no ghost logo" and how it made me think of firehouse red. We removed the hood from the original coat, as to not obstruct the eyeline while busting ghosts. Then altered the findings from tech fabrics to cotton and brass, to emulate our suits. Each sleeve is different, one has a shadow elbow patch in the seaming that mirrors our new black Ghostbusters suits and one has a drawstring pull. We added belt loops and shoulder pad detailing in a cotton ripstop (the fabric our suits are made from) dyed to match to parkas. We wanted places our heroes could snap and hook items on to, and a light to guide the way so we added those elements. Lastly we had to make sure we had a nozzle on our coat."

We pulled out all the zippers and changed all of those. The zippers in the back, too. Everything is changed. We used the same cotton ripstop to make the belt loops. The pull at the waist, we changed to cotton pull. And we restructured the whole coats. And I changed one of the sleeves so one mirrors the elbow patch in black and then scaling up our No Ghost patch as well and reversing the colors because holding up the No Ghost patch I was like 'This is so small for this coat. The red on red is going to look insane'."

  976. Brooklyn Magazine "Watch: ‘Ghostbusters’ puts Coney Island on ice" 3/26/2024 Gil Kenan says: "I happened to be in Manhattan on its hottest recorded day. It was 114 in the middle of the day and it was a day I'll never forget. Like, parents were stripping clothes off their children on the train coming over from New Jersey into the city. So I was able to channel that sort of intense urban heat that the boroughs can get. When thinking about where our new villain Garraka should unleash his death, and setting the film at the height of summer in the city, (it) allowed us to create the greatest possible dramatic contrast. So of course, Coney Island immediately came to mind. It's part of the city, but it's obviously a classic American beach environment. It has all the hallmarks of a grand day out on a hot day. And to use that as the front line for this freezing attack on the city just felt natural."

In Love with the Process Podcast "EP 296 | The Set Designer: Rebuilding the Ghostbusters Firehouse (w/ Luke Whitelock)" 1:12:08-1:12:53 3/5/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "We had to so the pole--the fire poles--the holes for the fire poles are three foot in diameter. The pole in the middle of it, that gives you one foot six. 18 inches of you grabbing it and sliding down. And they wanted to have one of the actors in the Proton Packs sliding down the pole. The problem is when you a Proton Pack on, you can't fit down the hole, so we had to do this cheat where we made a slimmer version of the Proton Packs. Like a rubber version so if it caught--so if it didn't catch the edge of the hole, it wouldn't hurt them."
  999. whitelock_design_limited instagram 5/15/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "What I love about working in 3D is how easy it is to work out what you see through the camera from different angles. The original plan was to have Ecto smash through the columns and for part of the ceiling to come down and to have our heroes surround by a ring of ice. We looked at the idea of having ceiling rigs with ice pointing down that could be lowered on tackles in shot to give the effect of the ice growing in real time. We can use the Sketchup model and our physical model to block out the scene and make design decisions based on what will or won’t be seen through particular camera lenses. And by creating scenes in the model we can easily bash out several versions all from the same views which is great and gives the director and DOP food for thought when they are deciding on their shots. It also helps from a budget point of view, knowing how much each I’ve unit was to make, we could easily do a count up of the components shown in the model to determine the costs, the amount you see here would have been too much for the budget so as we go along in the process and the shots become more clear we can work out exactly how many ice spears will be needed."
  1000. whitelock_design_limited 5/7/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "Designing the practical crack in the firehouse floor was an interesting challenge. Due to the fact we built the street outside we had to raise the floor inside the firehouse approximately 10" to allow for the natural dip down and camber of the road. So, we came up with an idea to create a trench that would be prebuilt into the floor and revealed when we shot the frozen scenes at the end of the schedule. Several versions can be seen here in various zig zag patterns, I had to nail down Garrakas positions with the Director (where he lands upon entering the firehouse and where the crack would end) from there we could pin point our trench position which had to bisect all out timber supports in the floor. With various level changes factored in to the trench as well the idea was to box it out, create a 6" space below for SFX to run their dry ice pipes, this was then given a lid with pre drilled holes to allow dry ice to escape. Then we back filled and packed down tight with pea gravel and laid our cement floor over the top. Then when we dressed the firehouse in ice (Wax dressing over a weekend) we had a team come in and chase the Chanel back out, lay our vac formed brick sheet around the edge, add real mortar and dress real bricks on top and add the wax ice to finish. It looked great and I was really pleased with the finished effect."
  1001. whitelock_design_limited 5/8/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "So usually when we come up with an idea we make a sample first, mainly to get clearance from the Designer and Director. Our Construction Manager came up with the idea for this practical effect. It had to be completely hidden by our cement floor before we channeled it back out. Slide 1 - The finished sample dressed with real bricks and plaster sheets to get that turned up brick effect along the edge of the crack Slide 2 & 3 - zoom in! Here you can see the cross section which explains to all departments involved exactly how we would achieve this - notice how tightly packed the sand and pea shingle is, allowing us to install our cement layer on top. Slide 4 & 5 - more close ups on the sample, once channelled out the plaster sheets of turned up bricks are dressed on top, these had full brick depth on the edges which could be hand finished. Slide 6 & 7 - constructing the wooden trough to hold SFX smoke rigs, the plaster department then wadded and sculpted the crack inside the box. Slide 8 - once dried the whole crack is backfilled and packed tight ready for the concrete screed to go on top Slide 9 - as the screed sets we follow behind with a Flemish bond stamp to stamp the pattern into the concrete, then following behind that we dust the wet cement with a powder dye to get the red colour."
  1002. whitelock_design_limited reply 5/8/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "the build took approximately 12 weeks from start to finish, on stage I had a small team of carpenters I think about 4-6, 3 painters, 4 plasterers and a 2 riggers."
  1003. whitelock_design_limited instagram 5/13/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "What many people may not realise is that a filming schedule which is usually dictated by availability of actors plays a huge part in how we schedule the work for the movie, we knew that we could only film the crack once we had shot out the firehouse in its clean state, there’s no going back once you open the crack! This final day of clean filming had to land on a Friday so we could turn it around over the weekend. We knew we only had one Saturday for the construction team to come in and chase out the concrete, sculpt the sides of the trough and place and fix in position all the plaster sheet, we gave construction a two hour head start on our SFX crew who followed behind as the plaster and paint was drying as they started melting the wax, heat gunning the vac forms and positioning the ice spears. Like a production line it all has to run smoothly and be completed within half a day! Huge shout out to Matt Greens plaster team who really nailed it with the brick sheet. I really wanted to pay homage to GB84 where the sidewalk lifts up outside Dana’s apartment and I think they really managed to achieve that peeled back and upturned look that I was after."
  1004. whitelock_design_limited instagram 5/13/2024 Text reads: "Step 1: Chase out the concrete and reveal Wooden channel. Step 2: Plaster the sides of the box to look like earth. Step 3: Add plastic pipes to create holes for SFX smoke to come up through. Step 4: layout the brick sheet and position it. Plaster added to sides of box, then chuck loads of pea shingle at it for texture. Once happy with position of brick sheet, secure in place with more plaster... Then tidy the edges and paint in to bed in."
  1005. whitelock_design_limited instagram 5/14/2024 Luke Whitelock says: "I love getting to work with other departments and seeing how these things come together, it's always surprising to me how effective a low tech solution can be, our SFX department has their work cut out on this one by the sheer number of handmade Ice Spikes. They spent weeks making hundreds all at various sizes. After many tests the most effective ones were simple vac formed cones in clear plastic, which then had a clear resin applied to the outside to give it texture and threaded through the middle was cotton wool wadding to give that misted up appearance. All spikes were mounted on timber boards and positioned to camera, each "Spike island" was bedded in with plastic sheet moulded to the floor with hot air guns, on top of which we also melted some wax, added some loose wax shards with glitter for shine and once the crew had been walking all over it it bedded in very nicely. An easy solution to a conundrum that did baffle us in the first few weeks. We contract out the snow and ice dressing for the walls to a company called Snow Business, their team came in and as you can see using water to spritz the walls they then blow a fine paper with a CV little glitter onto all surfaces to create that frost look."
