Originally we started out as a collector who sold over eBay. One day a buyer messaged us about creating a Lifesize Statue for their collection. Sharing mutual interest in the concept we were persuaded into designing this 1:1 Scale concept. After unrealistic costs as well as turnaround time our company ended up taking a loss & refunding everyone who bought the same concept including the initial buyer. During the pandemic this gave our entrepreneur & founder an opportunity to fine tune the concept whilst working on other commissions. This catapulted our company to achieve growth in not only our clientele but our inventory. As it gave not only range on what we could design but ultimately what requests were about to come in... Today Movieland has grown with new customers submitting commissions on a daily to weekly basis for their collections, businesses, museums, movie libraries, residences & restaurants. With over $100,000 in concepts & $30,000 invested it's rapidly growing it's clientele soaring to new heights in the aspect of creating lifesize statues & special effects. Looking back while moving forward our founder agrees that the fate of the pandemic led to the dawn of a new vision for Lifesize Statues & Special Effects. Prior to all of this, the founder's mother worked for the world famous & now long gone Movieland Wax Museum in Buena Park, CA. During that time she was good friends with the late Henry Alvarez (Henry Alvarez Wax Productions). Our founder also worked for the late Richard Tomasello who owned Advanced Packaging & Crating. Richard had crated a full size animatronic of King Kong for the RKO release. Our founder would visit Richard when he crated & shipped Ferrari's as well as WWII planes across the globe as a teenager.
I was introduced to the wonderful world of painting by my grandfather, a muralist in central Mexico. I was perhaps 10 years old the first time I saw my grandfather paint. I was mesmerized by his ability. He was painting, from memory, our favorite Disney characters for my brothers and I as gifts for us. As I was watching him, I thought to myself, "I want to do that, I think I CAN do that!" That was the beginning of my passion for drawing and painting.

Calvin Hoff creates art from recycled magazines - repurposed scraps of color and texture. His palette is created as he rips through many magazines at a time, surrounding himself with stacks of pages that find their way into file folders. At times the scrap he thinks he needs is impossible to find. Improvisation then becomes the name of the game. Sometimes the best effects are the result of happy accidents. Calvin enjoys incorporating recognizable images into his collages. Have fun playing “Where’s Waldo?” Enjoy the big picture, but take a closer look to discover what’s hidden.
