Veep’s White House

The idea to put a pattern on the wall came from Obama with Michael Smith's stripes, which had never been done in the White House before.

No problem. Most studios keep such generic sets on hand. But what if a director needs something more specific, say, a semicircular room with a big desk in front of three large windows, a rug with the Presidential seal, a Frederic Remington reproduction of a man on a horse, bookshelf alcoves with fancy woodwork and a big American flag -- in other words, an Oval Office? It is an increasingly common need, given the number of new films that deal with conspiracies in the White House, the threat of international terrorism and alien invasions.

Entire blueprints were created to reflect the floorpan of the actual White House, with hallways, cupboards and functioning doorways in-between rooms to ensure the set was as realistic as possible and allowing for the cameras to move freely from room to room. The offices of the West Wing were made to look as realistic as possible with chaotic desks filled with files and piles of paper, post-it notes, cups filled with pens, and all the bric-a-brac that eventually covers a busy office desk. Compare this chaos to the prestine executive offices and a sense of imbalance is visible between the hard-workers and the elite leaders. Many of the decorative items and furniture was auctioned off at the end of filming, including the portraits of Abraham Lincoln and George Washington which hang in the Oval Office, along with lamp, chairs, sofas and figurines seen dotted around throughout the set.

About six or seven weeks. What was involved in the research and planning? The director, Paul McGuigan, had a very specific vision, and it became clear we had to create an environment completely on our own. During our prep period, we took three scouting trips down to Washington. On our third trip, we were actually given access to the real Oval in the White House to do a quick survey. How did that happen? We started at the lower level—down where the naval cafeteria and crisis centre are—then we walked up to the Roosevelt Room and the cabinet room.
