Christie Brings Canada’s Wonderland Mountain to Life with Spectacular Projection Mapping Show

Millions of visitors flock through the gates of Canada’s Wonderland, just north of Toronto, Canada every season and since 2011 – the theme park’s 30th anniversary – Christie® technology has been mesmerizing visitors with ‘Starlight Spectacular’ – a 9 ½ minute projection mapping display that brings Wonderland Mountain to life each evening.
.
Four Christie Roadster S+20K 3-chip DLP® projectors equipped with Christie Twist Pro™ display fire breathing dragons, the changing seasons, ripple effects in a kaleidoscope of colors, and a mountain that appears to crumble – among other imagery.
.
“Wonderland Mountain is the centerpiece of the park and for our anniversary last year, we wanted to do something unique in Canada. Once we knew it was technically feasible, we hired Tantrum Design and Visual Effects to provide the content,” said Doug McBoyle, manager, technical and event services, Canada’s Wonderland. “This is the second year of the production and we are looking at some major and exciting changes for 2013.”
.
Projecting on a mountain, with its intricate curves and juts, presented a unique set of challenges but Christie technology proved more than capable. McBoyle said his biggest concern was making sure the content would look clean when projected onto the irregular surface.
.
“We looked at different options but Christie has the edge with its Christie Twist Pro package,” said McBoyle. “Christie Twist Pro was the key selling feature because there is such an uneven surface on the mountain filled with edges and obstructions.”
.
A single license of Christie Twist Pro™ supports an unlimited number of projectors per array and offers unlimited grid lines, advanced edge blending and blends masking. The optional software upgrades also features rotate and flip capabilities, gradient previews of edge blends, and a brightness uniformity controller.
.
“Without Christie Twist Pro, we wouldn’t have been able to develop or create the images we did. The Twist Pro solidified our ability to project coherent images on the mountain. The software has the convergence points we need to get a nice and even projection surface; it is amazing how clear and how aligned the projected images are.”
.
McBoyle said the park wanted to give people eye-candy and have them walk away saying, ‘I have never seen anything like that before … that was amazing.’
.
“We wanted to create the perfect kiss goodnight where the guests walk away feeling good about what they just saw. And I think we achieved that because the performance gives them 9 ½ minutes at the end of their day to regroup, see a spectacular show and then go home having had a great day.
.
“I can’t emphasize enough how the Christie staff of Dave Muscat (Sr. Director of Sales, Canada) Geoff Chick (Central and Western Regional Sales Manager) and Kyle Killing (Field Application Specialist) really came to the table. Without them, we wouldn’t have been so successful. Christie’s Canadian office and manufacturing facility is just two hours away and that was a huge deal for us. Not only is the Christie product great, we have manufacturers’ support so close by.”

ASC to Honor Dean Semler with Lifetime Achievement Award;Rodney Charters, Robby Müller and Curtis Clark Will Also Receive Tributes

LOS ANGELES (November 2, 2012) – Dean Semler ASC, ACS; Rodney Charters, ASC, CSC; Robby Müller, NSC, BVK; and Curtis Clark, ASC will be honored by their peers during the 27th Annual American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) Outstanding Achievement Awards to be held February 10 at the Hollywood & Highland Grand Ballroom. Semler will receive the 2012 ASC Lifetime Achievement Award; Müller will be presented with the International Achievement Award; Charters gets the Career Achievement in Television Award; and Clark collects the President’s Award.

“We are thrilled to be honoring this extraordinary group of artists,” says ASC President Stephen Lighthill. “Each of these individuals has made an indelible impact on our profession, and the industry as a whole.”

Semler earned his first narrative credit for Let the Balloon Go in 1976. He went on to earn critical praise for his innovative camerawork on a string of successful 1980s films, including Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, The Lighthorsemen, Cocktail, Young Guns and Dead Calm. In 1984, Semler won an Australian Film Institute Award for Russell Mulcahy’s thriller Razorback. Semler went on to earn an Oscar® and an ASC Award in 1991 for his magnificent imagery in Kevin Costner’s directorial debut Dances With Wolves. In 2007, his work on Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto earned him a second ASC Award nomination. Semler is a Member in the General Division of the Order of Australia, appointed by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for services to the arts, an honor bestowed upon him by his fellow countrymen. The sought-after cinematographer has collaborated with such seminal directors as George Miller, Peter Segal, Randall Wallace, Roland Emmerich, Tom Shadyac, and Phillip Noyce, among others. Semler’s nearly 70 feature credits include such memorable films as City Slickers, Last Action Hero, Waterworld, The Bone Collector, We Were Soldiers, XXX, Bruce Almighty, The Alamo, Get Smart, 2012, Date Night, Secretariat, Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut In the Land of Blood Honey, and the upcoming Parental Guidance and Maleficent.

“Dean’s creative prowess is seemingly limitless,” says ASC Awards Committee Chairman Daryn Okada. “His long list of impressive credits has defined a generation of cinema. Dean is consistently innovative, and is always outdoing himself from film to film. While we recognize his tremendous contribution to our art form, we will keep an eye on the future and highly anticipate what he will create next.”

Müller is a native of Holland, and spent five years as assistant to Dutch cinematographer Gerard Vandenberg. His collaborations with Wim Wenders began in 1969 when they made the short Alabama: 2000 Light Years From Home. The two went on to create such classics as Summer in the City, The Scarlet Letter, Falsche Bewegung, Kings of the Road, Alice in the Cities, The American Friend, Until the End of the World and the 1994 Palme d‘Or winner Paris, Texas. Müller has earned Independent Spirit Award nominations for Best Cinematography on Down By Law (1986), Barfly (1987), Mystery Train (1989), and Dead Man (1997).The list of Müller’s seminal credits is long and includes Lars von Trier’s Dancer in the Dark and Breaking the Waves, Alex Cox’s Repo Man, William Friedkin’s To Live and Die in L.A., and Jim Jarmusch’s Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai.

Charters is a graduate of the Royal College of Art in London. He began his career primarily working on documentaries. He spent 15 years traveling the world — shooting in locations such as the jungles of South America and in the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Charters eventually segued into the narrative world, shooting features and television. The New Zealand native earned a Gemini Award nomination for his work on the telefilm TekWar in1994, and grabbed two Emmy® nominations for his work on the acclaimed FOX series 24 in 2005 and 2006. Charters has brought his talent to the sets of such notable series as Nash Bridges, The Commish, M.A.N.T.I.S, The Pretender, Roswell, Shameless, Dallas (2012), and Nashville. His television movie credits include Deadly Vows, Conundrum, A Ring of Endless Light, Sounder, Pixel Perfect, A Very Married Christmas, An American Girl on the Home Front, Night Life, and Washington Field. In addition to shooting, Charters is a member of the Directors Guild of America, and has directed 11 hours of episodic TV.

Clark’s feature film credits include such critically-acclaimed narrative films as The Draughtsman’s Contract, Dominick and Eugene, Alamo Bay, Extremities and Triumph of the Spirit. He has hundreds of commercial credits working with cutting-edge directors and ad agencies. Clark has served as the chairman of the ASC Technology Committee, which both investigates and influences the development of emerging technologies that impact filmmakers. Under Clark’s leadership, the ASC Technology Committee has become an important industry forum that has achieved a series of notable successes including its collaborative work with the Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC (DCI) to produce standardized evaluation motion picture content for assessing the performance of DCI standards-based digital cinema systems. The Committee has also developed a groundbreaking cross platform data exchange for primary RGB digital color grading referred to as the ASC CDL (Color Decision List). The acceptance and implementation of the ASC CDL by the industry has been widespread, and it’s been recognized with a 2012 Primetime Emmy® Engineering Award.

Christie Demonstrates Its Leadership at ShowEast as the Most Reliable and Trusted Partner for Exhibitors Facing a Rapidly Transforming Cinema Industry

Cost Effective and Financially Accessible Solutions and Services to Deliver Premium Movie Experiences to All Types of Exhibitors are Showcased by Christie.
.
Christie today unveiled its fall lineup of reliable and economical cinema solutions at the annual ShowEast conference held at the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood, Florida. Leading the way and already shipping is the Christie Solaria One, aimed at emerging markets and community theaters whose screen sizes are less than 10.6 meters (35 feet) wide. This DCI-compliant solution is the first based on Texas Instruments’ (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) recently developed S2K DLP Cinema chipset to begin shipping in quantity.
.
“Christie is proud to offer solutions that generate positive, long-term revenues by providing customers with superior projection technologies and the very best in customer service and after-sale support,” said Craig Sholder, vice president, Christie Entertainment Solutions. “From small screens to ultra-large, premium-experience screens, Christie’s presence at ShowEast is defining the industry for 2013, with solutions like Christie Solaria One and Christie Duo, as befits a thought-and technology leader in the cinema industry.”
.
In addition to comprehensive solutions on display in Christie booth #915, Christie is a co-sponsor of the International Day activities, including its Awards Luncheon on November 5, which Jack Kline, president and chief operating officer, Christie Digital Systems USA, Inc., will address.
.
The Seven Zones in Christie’s Booth Showcase Choices for Exhibitors
Visitors to the Christie booth will have the opportunity to experience the firm’s cornerstone digital cinema offerings, whose scope encompasses new formats and technologies, backed by turnkey service and support for all of an exhibitor’s operations. Seven zones will amply demonstrate Christie’s commitment to be a trusted, one-stop shop for all exhibitor needs.
.
Zone 1: Christie Solaria One:
“The announcement of the high-value Christie Solaria One projector is indicative of Christie’s continuing digital cinema technology leadership, as the company advances the ‘democratization of digital’ trend that will end in all audiences across the globe having access to the finest in digital cinema and alternative content,” said Kathryn Cress, vice president, Global and Corporate Marketing, Christie.
.
A complete projection solution for screens up to 35 feet, it comes with a zoom lens, custom-designed Xenon lamp, and a Christie Integrated Media Block (IMB) with its own easy-to-operate Screen Management Software (SMS). The Solaria One is brightest in its class, since it projects 8000 lumens in the DCI color space, 9000 for alternative content and in its Solaria One+ variation, projects 9000 lumens in the DCI color space and10,000 for alternative content. Shipping DCI compliant in November, this affordable solution confirms that now all cinemas can make the move to digital projection. It is 3D ready, HFR upgradeable and has washable/reusable filters. Combined with the premium audio and visual playback capabilities of Christie SKA-3D, exhibitors can release the full playback potential of their digital cinema investments.
.
Zone 2: Christie Duo:
Christie Duo generates twice the brightness for super large 2D or 3D screens, allowing cinema exhibitors to offer a differentiated, premium movie-going experience to their patrons. Christie Duo is a dual-projection system using patented mirror system configurations, projecting simultaneous left-eye and right-eye images, which reduces 3D switching artifacts for better and more comfortable viewing of 3D presentations. The Christie Duo integration kit can be purchased with either a 2K or 4K Christie Solaria Series digital cinema projector or as a standalone integration kit if the exhibitor already has Christie projectors. Included in the solution is Christie DuoAlign, an auto-calibrating image alignment software and camera kit that easily aligns the images from both projectors, within seconds, to deliver a completely seamless movie experience. Low upfront costs and no ongoing revenue sharing requirements deliver a high performance and financially accessible premium large screen movie experience that exhibitors can brand.
.
Zone 3: Christie Avias-TMS:
The Christie Avias-TMS Theater Management System (TMS) provides simple and efficient centralized management of a multiplex’s entire projection operation. An interactive TMS will be showcased at the booth.
.
Zone 4: Lamp Lounge:
Christie Xenon lamps deliver a superior cinema experience, achieving longer life and lower operating costs than alternatives. Their brightness provides the brightest illumination possible, creating great 3D content projection. Xenon technology also affords the best image quality, producing light that is closest to natural sunlight, which in turn delivers the most life-like and natural colors. No other illumination source can produce light like that. Reliability is a given, with its natural gas element and ease of use aiding Xenon lamps to perform dependably, for a long time.
.
