“Imagination” – New York Energy Zone
The signature theatrical production “Imagination” at the New York Energy Zone is a 3D “Magi” presentation directed by the late Douglas Trumbull. Mr. Trumbull was an Academy award-winning special effects maestro. His SPFX credits include 2001: A Space Odyssey, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Blade Runner. BPI was the Executive Producer, Script Consultant, and Post Production Supervisor for the film featuring the historic Nicola Tesla on a mind bending time travel adventure. The story looks at the development of electricity and how the New York Power Authority is building for the future of power conservation, generation, and distribution.
The production was filmed using Trumbull’s patented “Magi” system where guests view the 3D production at 60 frames per eye, per second, for a stunningly realistic effect.
BPI also completed the media design and creative content overview for all of the New York Energy Zone exhibits in Utica, NY in collaboration with Scott Wood Design. The media components included multiple hands on digital interactives, multiscreen videos and immersive presentations. BPI’s distinct media design focused on a holistic guest centered experience.
