Richard Hudolin, the production designer on “Caprica,” said the cars help define the characters and balance the overall modern look of the show. “They’re a good counterpoint to the glass and chrome of the sets,” he said recently in a phone interview. “I wanted to balance that out, soften the look. So we started looking at older cars.” (...)
In adopting a noirish feel for the overall look for “Caprica,” Mr. Hudolin said it freed him from certain periodic constraints in selecting the prop vehicles. “One police vehicle is a Japanese van that’s been decked out and has one cherry on top,” he said. “We also use a contemporary Chrysler 300 because it has that 1940s look.”
