Brad Doolittle, creative designer and FX engineer at Vala's Pumpkin Patch in Gretna, Nebraska, designs and builds the family fun halloween animatronics. His expertise brings Vala's figures to life with better precision and fluidity. Some of the GilderGear he uses are Br-miniBrick4, Br-miniBrick8, Sd-10, Sd-25 and Sd-50/40.
Brad is one of the six full-time employees at Vala's Pumpkin Patch and he has a lot of hats to wear. In the off-season, he mainly develops concepts for new attractions and then builds them. A short list of what one project might entail would be metal fabrication and design engineering, pneumatics, electrical wiring, programming, audio recording/mastering, writing, sculpting, molding, painting, construction, and set design. As Brad says, "That's my job. And I love it."
Vala's Pumpkin Patch in Gretna, Nebraska will be celebrating their 30th anniversary as a family-friendly, farm experience this upcoming season. Vala's Pumpkin Patch is one of, if not the, largest Pumpkin Patch / Fall Festival in the United States today and sees 250,000+ guests go through their gates every year. They currently have well over 200 acres of pumpkins and attractions and hire 700 employees during the six-week season. They are planning to "branch out" in the next few years. With all of the attractions, shows, shopping, and food, it's almost impossible to see it all in just one day.
