"The Lost World" 4D is Ready for Theme Parks
nWave Pictures Distribution premiered its newest 4D attraction film "The Lost World" at the IAAPA Annual Attractions Expo in Orlando (Florida, USA) in November 2013.
Produced by British animation studio Red Star and directed by Ben Smith, this epic film takes the audiences into a whole new world of adventure, 40 million years in the making. This new 11-minute 4D title is exclusively distributed by nWave and will be available to theme parks and attraction exhibitors worldwide.
"The Lost World 4D" depicts the story of Bob, a stressed executive who heads to a deserted island for a much-needed vacation. It's a perfect place to relax, with sandy beaches and coconut trees... until his paradise turns out to be home to a lost world of prehistoric dinosaurs. Fierce Raptors, flying Pterosaurs, giant Triceratops, and the mighty T-Rex all roam this hostile world. With assistance from his unlikely rescuer, Professor Lizzie, Bob sets out to escape from these terrifying predators.

Realistic Dinos and Water Splashes
"From a wild jeep ride through a dense tropical rainforest to a perilous flight above and inside this forgotten island, this adventure will offer a thrilling experience to audiences", said Eric Dillens, Chairman of nWave Studios.
"Although we designed a high-energy entertaining animated film for theme parks, we knew that to fit the mission of institutional venues, we needed to depict the dinosaurs realistically, in a scientifically accurate way, so we concentrated a lot of effort to meet that expectation," explains the film's director and Red Star's creative director Ben Smith. "For extra impact, the use of 3D creates the illusion that the dinosaurs are coming out of the screen, while the addition of 4D effects such as water splashes, vibration, wind blasts, seat drops, lighting, leg tickles and motion cues will totally immerse viewers."
The House of Magic: The 4D Experience
The company has also confirmed the Spring 2014 release of its new 4D production "The House of Magic: The 4D Experience" directed by Ben Stassen and Jeremy Degruson. The 12-minute 4D attraction film features Thunder, an abandoned young cat, who stumbles into the strangest house imaginable, owned by an old magician and inhabited by a dazzling array of automatons and gizmos.
A teaser image can be downloaded on Facebook. The attraction film is based on the characters from the company's newest feature-length 3D animated film, "The House of Magic 3D" which is set for launch this Christmas in select international territories including Belgium, France, Italy, South Korea, Singapore and Turkey, and later in the UK, Germany and Australia.
