Flipped car display for The Tick Takeover Experience At San Diego Comic-Con 2017. Started with a blemish-free used car, changed the color to red, removed all fluids, added a roll-bar, flipped and anchored to a 3/4″ steel plate, dented and aged to the client’s specifications, and made safe by removing sharp edges and hazards for guests. Provided engineering drawings and LA city welding certifications per request by the city. Wired and programmed the headlights, turn signals and brake lights to be animated, and plumbed the car for fog/smoke effects.

Frankenstein’s Lab

Created a stylized version of Frankenstein’s lab for a production company on the Universal Studios Hollywood Backlot. We specifically made all of the lab equipment based off the 1930’s Frankenstein Film.  In addition to making the wooden cabinets and tables, custom metal hardware, and sculpted and cast elements, we also implemented a show control system specifically for the lab equipment effects consisting of 140 channels of dmx. Every individual light and gauge sweep were independently controllable and animated. An ambient show runs full time and a 30 second “overload” show is triggered by a large themed knife switch (also fabricated by us) on the wall and is synced to an audio track and the room lighting.
