How to make alien crate for short film?
So... I'm making a short film... and it's about an alien invasion. Basically, I need to create a prop of a crate (that would theoretically contain weapons). I'm not too picky about the look, just that it has an extra-terrestrial feel to it. Size I'm not picky about either, but the larger the better. Also, would be best if it'd be able to open. Anyone have any ideas on how to build something like this? I was thinking of maybe outfitting a cardboard box or an old cooler or something. My budget for the crate is only $25 and I'm trying to figure out what I can do!
Any help appreciated!
