          “Lotta Luv”

                      

XXXXOOO!!!

The New York Film Premiere of  “KING KONG”  was an enormous success for Geppetto Studios and all involved... with endless thanks to Bert and Pat Michaels of HPM/ Jhada of New York-  event planners extraordinaire!

“Skull Island- Ahoy!”  Geppetto’’s skillful rock carving process seen here!

Empire Force Events (NYC) requested this Apis Bull sculpture for one of their clients.  Besides shipping it to many trade shows, it is also used for their client’s holiday parties.

World Yacht Club’s “Wizard of Oz” theme party on Pier 92 in New York City.

This “Jeoffrey-mobile” was used as part of the campaign to promote the Toys R Us Times Square Store opening. You may have even seen this vehicle (with his rubberized head) while “rubber-necking along” the highway!

         Universal Studios NYC Film Premiere of Cinderella Man


Again, working under the talented direction of clients, Jhada of New York /Pat and Bert Michaels,  Geppetto constructed this elegant, 32 foot long replica of the famous, old Madison Square Garden Marquee. The gala was a huge success, especially with the rich,  stunning ambience of the magnificently lit landmark marquee.

Recently, Geppetto stopped Manhattan's mid-day traffic (not an easy feat by any stretch!) by wrapping the The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and School all up in red ribbon and bows, ala Christo! The colorful grand opening of the famous dance company's brand new headquarters on West 55th St. was quite dazzling as a decorative concept; as well as symbolizing this proud institution's many gifts to the cultural pulse of New York City!

On-the-Go Marketing commissioned Geppetto Studios to create this classic, replica bobsled for NBC SPORTS’ promotion of the American Bobsled Team at the last Winter Olympics. Scott is seen here seated in this sleek, fully operational model.

                                           

The Provincial Government of Alberta, Canada


These two 8 ft. florescent Tyrannosaurus Rex’s were created to flank the entrance to a gala exhibit in the Alberta Provincial  Museum of Natural History.  Their “job description” was to guard a valuable dinosaur tooth...  most likely one of their own species!


Lotta Luv”   NYC LOVE GODDESS, Lotta, is a lengendary costume/puppet character of Geppetto Studios.  Maybe you saw her at “Wigstock” in Tomkins Square Park many years back ... or then there was “Aids Walk NY”??!!! 

Lotta Luv is a FAB-u-lous Hostess, and LOVES to raise $$$ for those in need!

SOME OTHER VERY, VERY SPECIAL EVENTS

LOTTA LUV”

                      

Geppetto Studios also proudly participated in “Cow Parade NY 2000”, a fundraising event in NYC the summer of 2000 (Geppetto was sponsored by Simon and Schuster Children’s Publishing). With the help of co-designer, Hilary Knight, the book series illustrator, Geppetto fabricated the delightful “Eloise” (based on Kay Thompson’s and Hilary Knight’s popular books).


CLICK HERE  to read about “Eloise the Cow”, who proudly stood in the small park in front of the elegant, old Plaza Hotel all that summer-  the very hotel where Eloise, in a slightly different incarnation, lived for many years.  “Eloise” was auctioned for charities at Sotheby’s that fall for $15,000.00!!!

Meeting Hillary Knight was such a joy! It was a delight having him visit  Geppetto Studios, as he put his mark  on the beautiful bovine sculpture.  He had a very definite idea of what he wanted to see. Here Hillary is drawing the eyes on Eloise the Cow.

Lotta Luv hangin’ out at the FrozFruit booth again (later she confessed to flirting with the vendor!).
