Who We Are

We are Control Freaks 

…but in a good way. The world is a messy place – but here, we have the power to make things right; to use our collective talents to forge your dreams into a seamless reality.


Collaboration = Innovation 

Our diverse team of highly-skilled creatives have complementary skills and talents; all housed under one roof. This creates an intentionally cohesive, efficient work environment where ideas and information flow freely to produce the best possible results for your project.

The compelling thing about making art-  or making anything, I suppose- is the moment when the vaporous, insubstantial idea becomes a solid there, a thing, a substance in a world of substances.  Circe, Nimbue, Artemis, Athena, all the old sorceresses:  they must have known the feeling as they transformed mere men into fabulous creatures, stole the secrets of the magicians, disposed armies:  ah, look, there it is, the new thing.

Our Studios

Our High Springs, Florida production complex is sited on approximately 10 acres (4 hectares).  Our main production facility of 54,000 square feet (5,016 sq. meters) includes shops for woodworking, metalworking, CNC machining and cutting, composites fabrication, sculpting, painting, modelmaking, and a clean room for electronics/lighting and other sensitive operations.

A large central gallery space with a 36’ clear-span ceiling provides ample space for large mock-ups and assembly.  Additional paved areas outside allow us to fully stage exceptionally large show sets and iconic sculptures.

Our facility features natural lighting for realistic paint finishes.  And, approximately two-thirds of our electrical power needs are generated with renewable energy via our rooftop solar array.
