Axis joins the Fun
An announcement to really get your Blood pumping!
Already a major supplier in CG and animation for the entertainment industry - in true white knuckle thrill seeking fashion - Axis are taking the theme park industry by storm! Partnering with major industry players to create the highest quality, immersive media for rides, interactive simulators, large format 3D, dome projection and cutting edge virtual reality simulators. Better check if you meet the height requirement!
Axis’ Managing Director, Richard Scott, said “The Theme Park and Attractions world is going through a really interesting stage of development with audiences wanting more sophisticated, media-centric experiences with the perfect blend of action, excitement and story. At Axis, we have a proven track record in delivering creative solutions to all three of these for our clients, and we look forward to doing the same in the attractions world.”
Scream if you want to go faster! Axis has piqued the interest of the theme park attractions space for two reasons: firstly, as a result of its high quality, photo-real animation work and subsequently, from the release of their Halo 5: Guardians opening cinematic. A segment of the cinematic is shot and directed as one, unbroken, single camera experience as it follows 4 Spartan Space Marines battling through an epic fire-fight on an alien planet. This creative concept is similar to the content in many of the top motion simulation ride films.
With a strong in-house team of technical, stereoscopic and R&D engineers in place to continue the push into new areas and providing the viewer with an increasingly realistic and immersive experience.
Jason Fairley, Head of Research and Development, comments on Axis’ potential in this field: "At Axis we aim to deliver the same creative quality and impact in our video game and features work in everything we do, so we are excited to be creating new content for these innovative and diverse platforms and clients. With the current slate of amazing projects underway, and with more on the horizon, we are excited to be working in this new and challenging environment."
With several projects already underway, Axis are soon to be true coaster heads! Watch this space.
