Experience Entertainment is the brainchild of Kim and Jimmy LeMay, proud owners of Thor – a screen accurate replica of Baby, the 1967 Chevy Impala from the CW’s hit tv show “Supernatural.”
Thor’s restoration began as a surprise birthday present for Kim, a diehard “Supernatural” fan, from her husband Jimmy. However, as the couple began to work on repairing the classic car, and posted their progress photos online, they were quickly overwhelmed by the “Supernatural” fandom’s love for 1967 Chevy Impalas, particularly for shiny, black 4-door models! Requests for Thor’s appearance began to pour in, and the car soon developed it’s own online following.
As dedicated Supernatural fans themselves, Kim and Jimmy readily understood the desire fans had to touch, sit in, and pose for pictures with the restored Impala. Moreover they realized that same need for physical contact – a need which traditional green screen photos were unable to fulfill – extended to other fandoms and genres as well.
With that goal in mind, Kim and Jimmy set out to create not just a simple fan photo op, but a complete 3D experience; built by fans, for fans. It would feature replicas of fandom settings and vehicles to pose in, cosplay pieces to wear, and even props to hold: in short everything that would help fans become a part of their favorite world. Best of all, with the help of a professional photographer, a glossy 8 x 10 portrait would be a lasting record of their experience.
Today, Experience Entertainment continues to grow with the addition of popular pieces such as a London Police Call Box, pet zombies, movie themed cars, and more. All pieces are set against meticulously detailed backdrops, cosplay and prop replicas are provided, and a professional photographer is on hand to record each fan’s unique, one-of-a-kind experience. More information will soon be available on the newest feature: appearances by fan favorite actors, with opportunities for photo ops and autographs!
