Sven The Swordfish



Dutchy's, Tairua, Aotearoa NZ


Sven the Swordfish is a hand-made animatronic sculpture of a life-size swordfish that was made specifically for my brother's fishing and diving shop, 'Dutchy's'. I gifted Sven to him with a short video for a promotional scheme called "What's in my Tummy Timmy?", a game show where customers could guess what would be in Sven's tummy to gain prizes and discounts on Dutchy's products. This series consisted of a single Christmas-themed pilot episode. Unfortunately Dutchy's did not adopt the promotional scheme but Sven still hangs in Dutchy's today for people to interact with.
