Official Site

Robert Allsopp & Associates is a company specialising in props, costumes and effects for the entertainment industries. 

After studying Theatre Design for three years, Robert Allsopp served an apprenticeship with the noted jeweller Martin Adams. He worked under Martin's supervision on many film and TV projects including the Oscar winning Last Emperor. Over the next few years, Robert combined this apprenticeship with other work for the Royal Opera House and TV productions such as Dr. Who, Max Headroom and various BBC comedy shows, often collaborating with fellow effects workers Stephen Mansfield and Sue Moore. 

The current workshop allows for separate areas for the diverse aspects of the work: metal work, costume making, vacuum forming, mould making etc.

& Associates was added to the company name to acknowledge the enormous contribution of the workshop team members, making it clear that this was no longer the one man operation it had once been.
