2019 Just like we did for the CHANCE THE RAPPER tour puppets, we pulled off yet another miracle for another gigantic project. This time it was the new GOOGLE Exhibit, "THE RIDE"- an ‘It’s A Small World’ style ride with modern cartoon style family figures, that showed for four days at the 2019 CES show in Las Vegas. We partnered with VISION SCENERY to create thirty mostly over life size Character Figures in just thirty days, and as if that wasn't enough of a challenge, two thirds of them were created as mechanical, moving figures. It was a tough deadline, but we hit another home run. We don't let people down. Our GOOGLE show ride was described by one CNBC critic as “the most impressive booth experience I've ever seen at any trade show.."
We puppeteered our Alligator puppet on a Golf Course with Ricky Fowler for a new STATE FARM commercial. JANE THE VIRGIN included a few of our popular creatures in their shows this season- our animatronic alien, Zsa Zsa, and our Demon. And we rented our Big Cat costume to JUST ROLL WITH IT. Our rentals are still very busy this year, including our Dolphin, Shark Fins, Roswell Alien, Rats, and Goldfish.
We created some eight foot long Roots and Branches for a JUMEX FRESH commercial, and we were delighted to also be able to travel to Mexico City with them. Work seems to often come in twos, and similar to the JUMEX Roots and Branches, right afterwards, we also created some Giant Alien Pods and sixteen twenty foot long Alien Tentacles for the MICROSOFT XBOX Hivepit installation at the 2019 E3 Expo in Los Angeles.
