Event Description

From building full theatrical sets to small amusing displays, Fuller Street is your one-stop shop... just ask the team behind the Benji: Netflix Original Movie. They had a great idea for their Hollywood premiere: to make it dog-friendly! For this screening, guests were allowed to bring their dogs as part of the experience. The parking lot was converted into a "barking lot," and our client wanted something to replicate Benji’s actual dog house to give the premiere a more authentic feel. So they sent over a few rough sketches, some size, and colors, and we figured out the rest!

Our carpenters were able to assess which materials would work best and the fabrication began. Since this display would be at the entrance of the red carpet in a 20'x40' space, our client needed it big, really BIG! We used 1/4 luan subflooring to make the wooden shingles for the roof, and we used construction grade composite wood siding for the walls of the structure. To accompany the dog house, our client wanted to add a playground slide so our team was able to find a pre-owned slide and retrofitted it for this display.

Overall, we were happy with how the final product came out, but our client was ecstatic! Benji’s Dog house stole the show immediately as guests arrived, and served as a highlight for social media interaction that is still being talked about!
