Pentafour Software (Pentafour) has struck an alliance with Iwerks Entertainment (Iwerks) to develop a motion picture simulated theme park ride–film based on the ‘Sinbad’ feature film. The film would be distributed to theme parks around the world.
Iwerks is the one of the world’s leading full-service providers of high-tech entertainment systems, support services and film-based software in giant screen, ride simulation and specialty venue attractions.
Pentafour specialises in 2D/3D animation, special effects for the film and broadcast industry, multimedia based IT solutions and computer business tutorials (CBT). The company has executed various 2D/3D animation projects for large US companies like Funimation Productions (for Cyboar), Improvision Corp (Sinbad) and Rich Animation (King and I).
The large database of animation and characters built by Pentafour on Sinbad and other production will help establish a shorter production schedule and economical production budgets. The theme park film based on ‘Sinbad’ will be distributed initially to at least six parks in the US who will own the film for five year’s. These theme parks will finance the film while Iwerks will retain distribution rights of the film. Each 14-minute film, featuring a new story line and new animation with the same characters, is expected to generate revenues of $ 4 m.
