Howl Haven and Scareab PointHalloween Walk-throughs
Oak Island Creative called on us to help visualize theming concepts for two walk-through areas transforming a public park into a fun, immersive adventure for the whole family during the Halloween season. One was a timeless Egyptian tomb, complete with stilt-walking mummies, and the other a tongue-in-cheek village populated with
werewolves. In the end, the concepts were simplified to accommodate limitations on time, space and budgets, but were still a howling success.
We have been privileged to help visualize the sets and action sequences for many of these both in America and abroad.

To replace the popular Terminator 2 show at Universal Studios, Renaissance Entertainment worked with some cutting-edge technology to create a 4-D experience like no other, with practical set pieces arising from the stage floor to slide and rotate in sync with a high-resolution wall-to-wall LED display. We drew up detailed storyboards to help visualize the action and its integration with these elements.
