This started out as another one of my papercraft projects, but I had to pull the plug because Vigo was too difficult to cut and place into position. The goal was to create a “living painting”, much like there was in the film, with Vigo and the foreground floating above the backdrop. His eyes would’ve followed you around the room.
Thought I would post the concept anyways, as a bit of a Hail Mary: a company called Pyramid America specializes in making 3D shadowbox frames. These feature ‘floating characters’ for the 3D look, so Vigo would be a perfect fit for that product line. The company also appears to have a Ghostbusters license too. I’m hoping they notice and consider this design.
For my concept the eyes do not sit as far back as the background, so I don’t know if Pyramid can make something as layered as this, but even if they dropped the eye gimmick a 3D Vigo poster would be coveted among many Ghostbuster fans, I’m sure.
