Introduction to Giant Props
We love helping our clients create giant props for creative campaigns that just make people stop what they’re doing for a moment.
Our experience has made us one of the go to workshops in creating attention grabbing giant props for a variety of events such as; theatre productions, art installations and promotional campaigns. Giant props create an immediate impact in any given setting.
Our giant props have been used to promote movies, to introduce a new brand or product, as point of sale prop, to raise buyer awareness in a retail setting, to promote a new ride at Alton Towers and as part of an art installation at Tate Modern.
To carry out this type of prop making we typically carve in polystyrene due to its lightweight properties. To make the giant props durable we then coat them with polyurethane hard coat or fibreglass. If multiple and exact copies of the giant props are required we can mould and cast them for you. We design our giant props to be easily assembled, disassembled and easily transportable.
As with all giant props, the huge presence really gives a boost to your brand, product or promotion. Some of our past giant prop work has been seen at The Boat Show where we created a giant magic tap with free flowing water magically suspended in mid air, giant prop cartoon characters, giant trees, giant t-shirts, various giant retail display props for Ralph Lauren seasonal campaigns and a giant dart prop for William Hill World Darts Championship.
