Working with the detail oriented Universal Creative team found Gentle Giant Studios onboard to create the highly detailed 3D version of the White Dragon set to be placed atop Gringott’s Bank in Daigon Alley at Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction.
Interacting first with the engineers who concocted this idea, we received a CAD model containing all the structural elements required to keep this giant creature from unintentionally taking flight over the heads of park guests. Working around that critical armature, we crafted the creature with guidance from the Art Dept. leads from the film franchise, gleaned approval, and made an 8-foot-tall maquette of the dragon atop the bank building.
Taking our final approved data, Universal created this awesome fire-breather.
