Warner Brothers Studio Tour Hollywood – Potions Experience

We created an interactive Harry Potter Potions experience for  Warner Brother’s Studio Tour Hollywood – Action and Magic Made Here.
All ingredients were sculpted, molded, cast and painted with animation/lighting integrated. Bases made from solid red oak, ingredient name plates made from brass with electrochemical etching and integrated lighting and capacitive touch sensors. Self-stirring cauldron has internal motor and gearing, addressable lighting effects and hand-sculpted translucent potion top to diffuse leds and haze which is piped in through the bottom. All three interactive stations are controlled by a central control cabinet we produced that houses microcontrollers, dmx dimmers, relays, etc.

Trade Station – The Miami Bull

Working with Onyx Forge who fabricated the bull, we produced and installed the addressable LED illumination for the 31 light points and the two eyes along with a standalone show controller with different light patterns programmed.
We made custom 3D printed led holders with integrated diffusion and the contoller has the ability to run on mains or battery power if needed.
The Miami Bull was made for TradeStation through SMALL the agency.

 

Warner Brother’s Studio Tour Hollywood – Lasso of Truth

We created an interactive Wonder Woman – Lasso of Truth element for  Warner Brother’s Studio Tour Hollywood – Action and Magic Made Here.
With a core of steel that we rolled into the final shape, 700+ addressable leds are inside a silicone diffuser and an industrial mesh material. In idle/attract mode, the piece has a subtle pulsing effect across 36″ of length at hand-level. When a guest grabs the lasso anywhere in that 36″, a sensor knows where it was grabbed and causes the led’s to spell-on in both directions emanating from the guest’s hand, remaining on as long as it is grabbed, and then spells-off when let go. A microcontroller that manages the led animation is mounted in the base.

Glossier Seattle Mushrooms

Working though DeRouchey Foam, we sculpted, molded, cast and painted 100’s of silicone mushrooms for Glossier’s Seattle store.
There were also a handful translucent mushrooms with internal addressable led lighting.

Blood and Soil

Worked as a two man team with Production Designer, Alfredo Acle, to clear a remote forest, construct, and assemble an authentic civil war camp for the film “Blood and Soil”. Though many smaller items were found/rented, quite a few items were made from scratch according to the period. Atmospheric smoke and haze effects were also included in the list of responsibilities.
