Project: Create a Denver Broncos replica uniform for a 26-foot-tall Egyptian Anubis statue.
In late summer Harmonic Media was asked to custom image and fabricate a massive Denver Broncos replica uniform for a 26-foot-tall Egyptian Anubis statue. The statue was brought in to help promote the King Tut Exhibit at the Denver Art Museum.
"This is a really good example of thinking and executing way outside the large-format provider box," said Gary Paulin, chief evangelist, Harmonic Media. "Our crew measured the scale of the statue, created a design template, imaged over 700 sqft of poplin knit fabric, sewed it all together along with Velcro strips for on-site fit, and dressed the Egyptian God using two bucket trucks. The install was a bit of a media spectacle with news crews on-site filming the event with helicopter fly-bys, along with Denver Broncos cheerleaders and even Miles the team mascot. It all came together as planned, with a bit of needle and thread and some luck thrown in, everything fell into place—whew!"
