Rotating Planet Earth Globe Prop

Animated Props & Copious Glitter!

 

One of my favourite Icon & Co created animated props, this rotating window feature was created to display gift items from the theme park’s on-site shop, with the park’s various zones each being represented by an interchangeable shelf.  A neat blending of some of the skill-sets on offer at Icon & Co; 3D timber & glass fibre construction, motorised automation, digital printing & the covering of stuff in copious quantities of glitter…

YouTube link ‘here’.  Also, earlier in the life of this project, we produced a series of animated illustrations to demonstrate to the client what their completed window display might look like, here.

Animated London Window Display, 2 of 2.

Here is window 2 of a series of animated retail display props which we produced for the London store of a high-end mens’ fashion chain. Each window display featured a moving element taken from an iconic London landmark, powered by various motors, cams, drive-belts & the like. Here is the Parliament / Nelson’s Column / London Eye part of the scheme, as set up in our workshop (the animated gif is moving a bit faster than the original display, but you get the idea!):

Movie Props & Retail Display

 

Here is a link  to a little movie on YouTube capturing for all time an example of a typical Icon & Co job*: individual wall sections or whole buildings & streets can be reproduced from sheet plastic & timber & painted to look just like the real thing. Sometimes even better than the real thing. Routinely used for film & TV stage-set building & movie props but also as props in stores & shop windows where a bit of ‘street’ character is required!

* There is no such thing as a typical Icon & Co job, you should know that by now.

London to Paris Window Display

Animated Window Display

Here is a movie (link below) of a window display, created by the shop display and prop makers of Icon & Co, which was produced to celebrate a London to Paris car rally and was placed in the shop window of one of the event’s sponsors, Alfred Dunhill.  Electric cars raced around stylised models of landmarks from London & Paris and a ‘cross channel’ boat rocked perpetually between the two.

This animated window display prop was one of a selection of eye-catching window displays created for the shop window of Alfred Dunhill in London. This animated gif gives a bit of an idea of how it looked at the time:dunhill-steampunk-prop
