Giant inflatable face Sean Connery with large format banner

Giant Inflatable & Large Format print

Via  the client, X-treme Creations is informed of Sir Sean Connery’s laconic comments upon seeing the final  result was : “I have never ever been so big headed in my life before”. Unfortunately, it was the last movie in which Sean Connery performed.  
During a trip in China later in 2003, X-Treme happened to see a 10 minutes broadcast on CCTV in Hong Kong about the heroic mounting of the banner and inflatable to the front of a building.  I knew that the making of the project had been filmed but what a great surprise it was to see that the - obviously satisfied - client launched it internationally.

Client: Promotion Billboard Europe
Created for: 20th Century Fox
Product groups: Giant inflatables
Applications: Art & Design

Briefing

For the European launch of the “ League of  extraordinary  gentlemen”  in 2003, 20th Century Fox wants to equip a number of billboards with an optional innovative extra visual, following the spirit of Sir Sean Connery’s  saying “ It is better to believe one eye than two ears”

Project

Eventually, a number of digitally printed mega banners are produced measuring between 500 and 800 m² in order to be fixed to the front of cinema complexes. For the German market the head of the protagonist Allan Quatermain,  British hunter and adventurer of the comic series “The League of extraordinary gentlemen”, played by Sean Connery , is modelled into a 5 m tall inflatable. The modelling is for a 100 % based on original movie images.  The inflatable head wearing a hat, consists of 266 pattern parts and the face is airbrushed by John Schürgers, a renowned expert in the European world of airbrushing now deceased. At the back side the hat is strengthened by means of scaffolding pipes in order to neutralize the wind coming from the roof. It becomes one of the  pioneering projects in combining a 2D large sized print and a 3D inflatable of such a big format. Since 2006 it has inspired ID&T Belgium for the ever growing stages at “Tomorrowland”.
