It's been a busy season for the staff over at Dinosaur Valley Studios.
Currently they are working with three different museums within Alberta.
"We're working with the Royal Alberta Museum, in conjunction with the Tyrrell Museum, on a Pachyrhinosaurus and a smaller baby. We had to reposition the one skeleton of the baby and completely assemble the skeleton of the adult," stated Frank Hadfield, President of Dinosaur Valley Studios.
"We're also making a You Build Series, or You Build Raptors, and that's for the Tyrrell Museum. These are small raptor dinosaurs that you can assemble the skeletons of for teaching or just recreation," he added. "The third project is a replication of a cross section of a hill that shows the coal themes and different fossils that are associated above and below. This is for the Galt Museum in Lethbridge, Alberta."
The dinosaur theme work is fairly typical to what Hadfield and his staff works with.
"It's some different stuff. The wall is the first stage of an outdoor exhibit they're doing to promote the history of coal mining in the region," Hadfield outlined.
Hadfield mentioned that they are also working with a producer in Edmonton to develop an Imax film.
"That's still in developmental stages right now. A lot of these things we do we have to sign non-disclosure agreements on, so we're not really at liberty to say. Not as busy as previous years in the film industry, but exhibit wise we're flat out."
