Universal: Despicable Me Minion
Acme was tasked to create a life-size replica prop of one of the minions from Universal Studio’s Despicable me franchise. The minion was part of a seasonal Christmas display and acted as the totem at the top of a Christmas tree. The minion was seen by thousands at Universal Studios, California.
The minion itself was sculpted precisely to a 3D render using our robotic arm foam sculptor. Afterwards, the entire sculpture was hard-coated with resin in order to make it durable and resistant to wear and tear. Finally, the entire minion was then scenically painted to make it look identical to the version in the movies. For the pants, a graphic material was printed and laid around the waist of the minion that matched exactly to the reference model.
