Scott LOVES lettering (he’s been doing it professionally since he was in high school), and his handiwork as a sign painter ranges from stage design to elegant restaurant signs... chic boutiques... exquisite costumes... Sanskrit graphics... Egyptian hieroglyphics... film graphics... trucks... ambulances... cargo vans...

RIGHT: NEW YORK CITY FILM PREMIERE OF CINDERELLA MAN. Designed by Bert and Pat Michaels of HPM Entertaiment/ Jhada of NY. The dazzlingly lite letters spoke volumes about the deep passionate emotions throughout this film. Geppetto painstakingly constructed this exact replica of the landmark 32’ x 8’ Madison Square Garden Marquee.

Diane Keaton’s   HEAVEN”

NOW LET”S GO BACK A FEW YEARS...  Scott Molampy, a talented youngster fresh out of college and already working on a few freelance projects, stumbled onto this “High Noon Saloon” gig. It began as just another interesting sign painting job, but it ended up altering the course of his life!

He will always remember it as the sign painting job that beckoned him toward soft sculpture... 

and the calling was coming from inside one of these two trailers!

“Inside the HIGH NOON SALOON trailer ‘lived’ a motley group of coin operated ‘Wild West’ characters”, says Scott, “constructed of foam, polyfil, and all held together with nylon stockings. The sculptures inside were vandalized, and my client asked me if I could fix them. So I told him that I’d give it a try. Anyway, I loved the technique and it progressed to what it is now- GEPPETTO STUDIOS!!!”

A rich variety of graphics and signage projects...

A few years back, client TRI STATE PRODUCTIONS hired Geppetto to fabricate an exact replica of a classic 1929 Royal Typewriter for The Las  Vegas Consumer Electronics Trade Show (seen  below).

This well planned design concept- and completed installation-  was quite stunning!

Right down to every last detail, Geppetto artisans painstakingly crafted an exact 10 x 12 foot replica of the classic antique typewriter. CLICK HERE  (or on photos) for pictures, videos, and articles!

Carving letters into the various forms of foam available on the market is just one of Geppetto’s  fortes.

Way back in Geppetto’s East Village days, Scott Molampy worked with actress, writer, and director, Diane Keaton, on her artsy, cult-film favorite, “Heaven”.  Scott created 20 airbrushed headings for the film, all based on early twentieth century graphic styles. The lettered headings were quite engaging as they were dramatically flashed on the screen, followed by interviews of various people.  Here are 5 of our favorites...

Classic Sign painting (even a sign post!) wayyyyyyyy up

in the clouds in the magical  Rainbow Room

Up above the clouds on the 65th floor! Since its debut on October 3rd, 1934,

the Rainbow Room in 30 Rock has epitomized New York style, glamour and sophistication... and then, of course, there’s that spectacular view of New York City!

And here’s glamourous Will (no, the photo on the left!), in the Rainbow Room in broad daylight... taking a moment to pose while overseeing an installation for client, Barkley-Kalpak Associates, a New York City based event design and production company. Any moment is the right moment to express Geppetto’s sentiments to our “Dear, Dear, Mother Brooklyn” !!!
