Art Film Group had the privilege to build a time machine capsule for a Florida lotto commercial
shoot in Tampa Florida. We had the first meeting and renderings, discussed that the capsule needs
to look as real as possible to a Hollywood movie prop.
The capsule build started with a sono tube used for molding on bridges and big construction, cut
it in half to make the door and the other half have to be secure with a frame structure to keep the
round and the weight of a real person.
After we secured the tube, we wrapped it with high gloss Formica and painted.
The base was made in MDF, we cut it in a CNC computer machine and painted with auto paint to
get that close look of the shiny Formica.
Additionally, we installed a dual air piston to get that feeling of a mechanical movement going
from vertical to horizontal, giving it an extraordinary futuristic look.
We incorporated a set of led light from the company Diode lighting, to be able to change colors
from a control giving it an outer space look which provides extra great feeling.
The prop was built in Miami Florida and was transported to the Tampa area.
We are pleased that the prop filled up all out client expectations.
