Through all the thousands of pounds of 'gator tail I cooked back then I never thought I'd later in life be called on to provide 10+ feet of dismembered alligator tail! Here for SyFy's Cajun RedNeck Gators  is my "tale".
If I remember it correctly this was one of those desperate Friday or Saturday night emails from the producer's office needing this 10+ feet of flexible dismembered alligator's tail on set the next week by Wednesday or Thursday or something like that. Whatever the particulars, I know it was something like 5 days from contract to completion. We were able to fabricate the model, mold it, run the copy and have it painted, shipped and on set one day early☺.
Man, what a pressure cooker those days were. Especially since I was still in the process of finishing the GhostShark animatronic which it & us were due in Louisiana on set the very next week for filming it! This was I believe just the next month after I returned from Jawsfest 2012.
Those were some SERIOUSLY Fun times!☺
