2022 Hollywood and commercials are definitely back in action- this year has been one of our biggest years.
Our eleven foot long, realistic Alligator puppet was part of a wicked commercial for Ladder Life Insurance, where a husband begins removing his clothing in anticipation as he follows a promising trail of rosebuds into the bedroom, only to discover, instead of his amorous hopes, it is our Alligator that is under the sheets. "Ladder- insurance so good, they're gonna want you dead!" "But seriously: intentionally killing a policyholder will void all lifr insurance benefits."
Our animatronic Gorilla costume was in a new commercial for EOS Shaving Cream.
For the Hatfield and McCoy Family Feud show in Branson Missouri, we teamed up with our magic making friends at Entertainment Design and Fabrication to create a full sized, mechanical Billykopter that looks like it was built out of an old 40’s Ford truck and actually flies around the stage -with an assist from a crane.
We rented our Catfish costume for a very funny new campaign of commercials for A2 Milk, where our Catfish was misrepresenting itself in online dating (catfishing), to dramatize how some milk products are not really what they advertise.
In record time, we created these five Portrait Sculptures of the America’s Got Talent judges: Simon Cowell, Sophia Vergara, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandell, and host Terry Crews. The America’s Got Talent busts were all part of a prank that Sofia Vergara played on Simon Cowell to get even for a prank he played on her. All the judges’ portraits were beautiful, golden likeness, except for Simon’s who was intentionally made to look very goofy. The busts were unveiled in a filmed live event, so Simon’s priceless reaction to his intentionally funky likeness was captured for all posterity on the show.
For a Cherry World commercial, we created a hairy giant Red Alien costume.
For the E11EVEN Nightclub in Miami, we created the mask for their E11 APE DJ, with their logo in wild, streaming LED colors on his hat.
For Credible Loans we shot a second set of commercials featuring the Credibull, their feisty animatronic bull spokesperson character costume.We were proud to play a big part in the Southpark 25th Anniversary Celebration Show filmed at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado. We created these three costumes of the
Frog Prince, Catatafish, and Sparrow characters.
