Earlier this fall the Canadian Football League asked Media Resources if we’d like to run a play at the 106th Grey Cup festivities. As an integrated sign services provider we put our entire team at their disposal: digital LED scoreboards, sign service & installation, grand format printing and 3D fabrication.
For this game our 3D (VISION3D) and installation divisions were selected to play. Our part of the game plan included 3D props ranging from a 6’ long football, giant CFL logo’d helmet, size 186 shoe, goal post, essentially everything in the picture but the players!
The process started with CNC carving out of EPS foam (3D printing not used for this project). Next came hard coating for durability (so the players could sit on the football). Hand airbrushing and vinyl graphics got the pieces ready for kick off. Then we lateraled to our installation and service team in Edmonton to build the walls and mount all the pieces — a Media Resources team effort!
While Media Resources scored big at the Grey Cup the final victory went to the Calgary Stampeders winning 27 to 16 over the Ottawa Redblacks. Congratulations Stampeders!!
If your company is interested in discussing 3D props for your next big game, give the VISION3D team at Media Resources a call!
