Yorkshire Press Feature, 2nd April 2021 reads: A Man who built Jurassic Park in his garden as a teenager is living the dream of many film enthusiasts by dealing in movie memorabilia. Andy Simpson buys and sells props from the big screen, from false body parts in Harry Potter films to outfits worn in Bond blockbusters and Artefacts from Titanic. “My product is so niche that we have to be online. It is still a small business and I am getting the word out. Obviously I would love to sell pieces such as Luke Skywalker’s Lightsaber but we’re not at that stage yet” he says. Andy, who helps care for his Father who has Dementia, said he loved his job, and his business provides an element of escapism. He hit the Press Headlines as a boy when he transformed his Parent’s back garden into a fully working Cinema and a Jurassic Park themed water ride. Andy now sources, researches and sells pieces of Film history at www.moviemaniaonline.co.uk, which he frames with proof of provenance. A dress worn by Catherine Zeta Jones in The Mask of Zorro was one of his most valuable items, fetching £5,500. “I work with Crew and Production Members. I usually get a lot of custom from Instagram. There’s a lot of detective work for provenance, which I love.” Andy hopes to hold his first auction this year.
