Commercial Project

A lot of clients come into our shop looking for unique items built whether they are for movies, their office, or for trade shows. As much fun as these items are to build (sometimes difficult) we don’t always get to see the finished product in use. The project we currently have been working on was for a japanese oil company’s commercial. On this project not only did we finish the product and it worked great, but we also had crew their for set up and scenic painting. Everything went well and  I put a few pics from set below. The second pic you can see our creations and if you are wondering why the undercarriage is painted green, the commercial was shot in front of a green screen. Hopefully in a month or so we can see the commercial on youtube.

Trade Shows and Conventions

Doing movie props for over 30 years we have come across a lot of big names- to list a few, Star Trek and Starship Troopers to more recently mtvs Teen Wolf and movies like Hansel and Gretal. So you wouldn’t be surprised that in the trade show scene we have also worked with a few big names. The first that comes to mind would be Lincoln Electric. You may know the name Lincoln from their many different wielders and wielding supplies. Back in 2013 we were contracted to make a little something different for them for the upcoming Fabtech convention. The project was for a realistic looking hover bike. Below you will see a lot of pics of the bike during construction and the advertisement the used at Fabtech. If you had attended you could even get a picture of you on it.
