Our crew consisted of 8 people, including 6 employees from the zoo. We had to install 8 dinosaurs within just 3 days in Idaho.

The most difficult task was building around the trees, and general wooded area. The right lighting was also crucial to the aesthetics of the dinosaurs.

Opening day brought in a lot of people, while our dinosaurs are paired with a new butterfly exhibit at the zoo. We made sure to surprise each guest with IR activation, making our dinosaurs roar to life whenever someone simply walked past.

If you haven’t seen our amazing dinosaurs yet, they’ll be at Zoo Boise all summer! So go check them out!!

Saturday, 4/27 Street Fair: Dinosaurs, Jazz, Tacos and Talking Robots — Finale to Phila Biennial Arts Fest

The installation was a great success, and one of the biggest attractions in the Phila Biennial Arts Festival! Remarkably, the official opening of the festival started with the city official pressing a big button on the fake remote control. The first move, and the first loud roar made by the big T-Rex announced the official beginning of the event.

The most challenging part of this installation was timing: everything had to be done on-time by a specific hour.

Eight blocks of Broad Street in Downtown Philadelphia were closed at 7 p.m. on April 26th. Our trucks came into the area and waited on flashers on the side streets before they were be allowed to move in the assigned place for unloading. As soon as the police really stopped the traffic by 7:40 p.m, 25 semi-trailers and some smaller trucks belonging to 60 vendors and exhibitors, like us, were moved into the area for the unloading and installation. All of the installations had to be completed by 9 a.m. on April 27th. We had to coordinate in time with the landscaping crew, who was supposed to turn a 6 lane pavement of Broad Street into a giant sand box for our dinosaurs.

So, our crew of 4 people installed our 40′ long by 18′ tall animatronic T-Rex, and 4 animatronic baby dinosaurs in record time by 7 a.m. on April 27th. We worked overnight with the limited lighting provided only by the existing street lamps. Our second challenge was on dismantling our exhibit. The festival closed at 8 p.m. and we had to dismantle our exhibit, pack it, load into the truck, and clean the space by 2 a.m. on April 28th. Our incredible crew worked so fast that we had 30 minutes to spare!

Overall, this was truly a great festival, and everything was a huge success!
