Year in Review: Scappoose design team wows at Super Bowl
During the 2015 Super Bowl halftime show, pop artist Katy Perry kicked off her set on a giant, prismatic lion, designed by Scappoose-based Michael Curry Design Studio.
The metallic gold, 14-foot tall lion was controlled by puppeteers and gained national media attention.
Michael Currys theatrical designs have landed his studio prestigious gigs designing stage sets for top 40 pop artists like Perry, as well as the Olympics, Cirque du Soleil and Broadway productions of The Lion King.
I made it move in slow motion to compound the sense of scale and weight, Curry told the Spotlight in February. Its one of the keys of my work is doing really sophisticated sculpture, but then taking it to the next level, which is movement.
The lion took 30 people to create and captured the attention of more than 118 million people.
