Apple Boxes in the Entertainment Industry?
Believe it or not, apple boxes are utilized on film sets in the entertainment industry. But when you hear crew members and/or the director ask for a 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 or “Full Apple,” they are not asking for fruit!
The wooden crates are built in different heights (1/4, 1/3, 1/2 or Full) that elevate either an actor, a cameo or furniture on a set. For instance, when Johnny Depp had to kiss Kiera Knightly on the deck of the ship in Pirates of the Caribbean, the famous actor was standing on a 1/4 Apple Box, so he he would appear taller than Kiera!
