African Lion Movie Project

Each day our field of work brings forward new and interesting challenges, so when a major movie production house called us to ask if we could provide a life size African Lion for a current movie, we felt equal to the challenge. But this was to be no ordinary lion mount. The script called for a life size male to be portrayed suspended from the ceiling as if it were recently deceased... And there were time limits, as is the case with most productions.

Fortunately we had a nice male lion in stock, however the biggest challenge was identifying reference photos of lions in a suspended dead pose. Google doesn't quite have everything. Yet with some team planning on anchor points and gravity, within seven days the entire project was completed in what we believe a very realistic attitude- all be it for a big dead cat. So next time you Google hanging African Lion, well maybe our work will feature in the images!
