African Lion Movie Project

Posted by Steve Pegg on Tuesday, March 25, 2014

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!

Phar Lap

Posted by Steve Pegg on Friday, March 14, 2014

Museum Victoria is famous the world over for its modern architectural designs amidst the Grandeur presence of the Royal Exhibition buildings of 1881. To the Australian man, the Street Museum Victoria is better known as the final resting place of an Australian icon Phar Lap.

Despite the fact that Phar Lap has been dead for over 80 years, Big Red is idolised by thousands of Australians, most whom were not even born at his time of track domination. In a racing career in Australia of less than three years- Phar Lap, bred and raised in New Zealand, had won more money than any other horse in either country at the time of his death in 1932. The Australian turf was completely dominated by this thoroughbred freak, who won 37 times in 51 starts and started favorite in races out of 42.

When Phar Lap had nothing more to conquer in Australia he was taken to America to continue his winning career. Less than 3 months after reaching the U.S, he was dead. No body knows with complete certainty as to why he died although theories in his sudden death have lingered through the decades. When Phar Laps life gushed from his body soon after midday on Tuesday April 5 1932 at Menlo Park California, the most sensational turf story of the century began humming over the cables to Australia.

"Phar Lap the Australian champion race horse died today."
