We had a very interesting side project this past Spring/Summer. Kurt applied his photography technique and style to the Disney Infinity figurines. Disney Infinity is a video game that features Disney, Pixar and Marvel characters.
After getting Disney's blessing and a box full of figurines including some that haven't been released, Kurt went to work immediately, cutting them from their base and building props. Apology to collectors, Baymax had to get a new foot: Kurt had difficulties getting him off his base and accidentally cut it off!
As props go, Buzz Lightyear got himself a space rocket, Mickey is working his magic broom, Wreck-It ralph is pulling the wires at a video arcade, Maleficient is appearing out of a green flame and Mr. Incredible got himself a bucket and cloth and is ready to do some clean up!
The result of this project is a series of images featuring Disney Infinity characters shot on location in the real world environment. The scenes were photographed indoor and outdoor in Gooseberry Falls State Park, Two Harbors, Duluth, Minneapolis, St Paul and New York City.
Some of the shots were done with the gracious approval from business owners, THANK YOU to Adventure Zone, Amazing Grace Bakery & Cafe and Toys for Keep in Duluth, HiFi Hair & Record, Magers & Quinn Booksellers and The Foundry Home Goods in Minneapolis, Lil'Dog Car and Pet Wash in Two Harbors and Frames Bowling Lounge in New York City. We picked those businesses because they look neat and the people there are nice.
