Motiongate Park Dubai:
Columbia Pictures Zone
In the past year, Creative Capers has been thrilled to collaborate with Sony Pictures Animation, BOSA and Dubai Parks & Resorts to create feature quality animation for a brand new massive theme park called Motiongate Park Dubai. It opened in December 2016, filled with attractions designed straight from Hollywood’s top films. Creative Capers worked exclusively on the Columbia Pictures Zone rides, producing over 25 minutes of new content for the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Water Ride, Flint’s Imagination Lab, and Hotel Transylvania. This involved coordinating 2D/Flash and CG pipelines to create high quality animation that matched seamlessly with the popular feature films.
Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs:
Motiongate Park’s “River Expedition” attraction takes place in the town of Swallow Falls where foodimals have taken over. Using the original characters from the popular movie “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs,” we produced a queue video loop to help bring this attraction to life. We created and animated cg models, painted backgrounds, designed graphics, and seamlessly edited together existing footage from the feature with new content.
Flint’s Imagination Lab
Flint’s Imagination Lab is a children’s play area that brings guests into the ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs’ universe. Through storyboarding, character design, and flash animation, Creative Capers built a 20-minute video loop that integrated clips from the original feature with new animation — seamlessly matching the high level of quality established within this franchise. Designed to be uniquely viewed within the attraction on Flint’s larger-than-life multi-screen television!
Hotel Transylvania: The Ride
Finally, we helped bring to life Hotel Transylvania: The Ride. Various animated sequences appear throughout the ride, which include main characters like Dracula, Mummy, Blobby and the Bellhop Zombies. Our work included: Storyboarding, CG modeling, Animation and Effects to seamlessly fit within the practical sets of the attraction.
