Greatest Showman x Amazon

Mighty Oak worked with 20th Century Fox to promote the new film that celebrates PT Barnum’s life story.

Using Amazon’s promotional “Greatest Showman” boxes, we built a fantastical circus that opened to reveal the rogues and heroes behind corrugated curtains. To capture the whimsy and flair of PT Barnum’s world, we crafted stilt walkers, the bearded lady, jugglers, and even the strong man, using chalk and a fine point pen for each little detail.

Take a look behind the scenes of how the show came together below.
