Client testimonials

  • Sorawit Songsataya - The Interior, a moa / Auckland Art Gallery
    "My experience working with Human Dynamo's team was memorable. I could see the passion, care, dedication, and attention to details from everyone in the team. What I appreciate the most is the willingness to listen, to contribute knowledge and skills most appropriate to the task, and the respect and integrity everyone has towards the art."

  • Andrew Stewart of Te Papa regarding Te Taiao | Nature exhibition.
    "I found the team at Human Dynamo to be exceptional in their focus, commitment, and production quality; taking a mix of photographs, photocopies and preserved specimens to create fish models that looked as if all they needed was water. Some of the older models that were re-painted and re-worked I had thought were beyond salvage, but the end result was spectacular. Problems were overcome with innovation and talent. It has been a pleasure to work with such gifted and passionate people."

  • Neil Kirkland Regarding Avatar (2009)
    "You wouldn't believe the number of people who (unprompted) came up to us and said that these were the best sets and props that they had seen anywhere. Many of these people were experienced 'Hollywood types'. The words that came up again and again were 'quality' and 'workmanship'. James Cameron in particular, was very appreciative of your efforts."
