Exhibiting at Power-Con 2016: Unique Movie Cars

Unique Movie Cars has a surprise coming to Power-Con that really has bite!

Why should you be excited? Well, for four decades the Sciortinos have been harmoniously designing and building cars and props for the movie and television industry. Ninety percent of the cars and props that are seen on TV and movies today as well as virtually those in all of the popular 1980’s and 1990’s TV series and movies have been built by this father and son team.

Because of the reputation they’ve built in the 40 plus years in business work seeks Mario and Mike out. It often requires a lot of research, if they have to duplicate an old Texaco truck for a scene, it means a lot of late nights finding pictures and information so they can be very precise with the duplication process so it will fit the science flawlessly.

Although Mario and Mike retains a number of employees, the Sciortinos may have to hire more, depending upon what projects they are working on. For example, fo the TV series V.I.P.E.R. for which they designed the “STAR” of the show “The VIPER DEFENDER,” they only had 40 days to get 14 principal cars and 200 non-principal cars completed with a work force of 25 people.

One thing’s for certain if you’re watching a movie or TV show and there’s someone driving off a cliff or into the sunset, then you can bet that it’s a car Unique-ly made for the scene by Mario and Mike Sciortino. And what they will be bringing to Power-Con really dives into what He-Man fans love.
