SpyGame Studios was hired by Clevver to get a behind the scenes look at how they make the The Screen Actors Guild Awards Statuette.  The process was very informative and interesting to see how they carry out all the steps of production.

Step 1: Wax statuettes were made first to help create the metal molds.

Step 2:  Workers in fire suits poured molten bronze metal into molds at the American Fine Arts Foundry in Burbank, California.
