Creative Director, Designer, Fabricator
Hall Trains earliest professional success came from his work in television commercials, where he won many international awards for his groundbreaking special effects and animation. Hall then began to focus on Natural History and Science, transforming cutting-edge science research into uniquely engaging exhibitry for the public. He has been called a pioneer and an inventor by the Journal Science. The New York Times called his work “dynamic”. The American Museum of Natural History, a regular client, describes his scale-model walking T. rex as “the most scientifically accurate model ever built of a dinosaur walking.” Over the past 20+ years, Hall Train has created over 40 major international natural-history and science-themed projects, including sculptures, animations, robots, and environments for leading museums, institutions, science centers, theme parks, and broadcasters around the world
