To help launch the movie Pixels, traction 3d fabricators created 3 separate Pac-Man structures for placement on billboards around LA. Each Pac-Man was over 19' 6" tall, weighed over 2000 pounds, and was internally lit by a custom LED track lighting system.
In order for each Pac-Man to glow, traction 3d fabricators used translucent fiberglass to make each piece, allowing the LED lighting system to illuminate the interior segment of each piece. The final painting and finishing process for each piece took multiple days, with only one artist painting all 3 Pac-man structures, to maintain visual consistency, while disguising the tremendous amount of structure required to secure the pieces to each billboard.
