CT Enters the World of Ninjago™

30 November, 2015

CT commissioned for video element for LEGO™, ‘Ninjago and The Realm of Shadows’ at LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort.

LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort has now made it possible for fans of the hit TV series “Ninjago – Masters of Spinjitsu” to enter the world of Ninjago™.

The famous building block toy company brings to life a Japanese style puppet show allowing visitors to join the courageous Ninjas on a mission to protect a YinYang Dragon. The sensory immersive experience, entitled LEGO™ ‘Ninjago and The Realm of Shadows’ scripted by award-winning Hollywood movie writers Kevin and Dan Hageman (who also wrote The LEGO Movie and the Ninjago™ TV series), utilises the latest in video mapping technology and 4D special effects.

Creative Technology (CT) was commissioned by the producers Red Thread Solutions to design and install the video element and work with the content company Artists In Motion in putting the scenic element together. Providing a fully mapped projection onto a 30m wide theatre set and stage floor, CT used eight channels of the newly released version 6 of Dataton WATCHOUT.

To ensure that the project was seamlessly produced, CT brought in well-known Singaporean Watchout expert Kentie Heng to handle the programming and mapping.

CT also supplied eight Barco CTHD 61B projectors to project the content onto the mapped area.

“LEGO™ Ninjago & The Realms of Shadows” shows daily at the Lego City stage at LEGOLAND® Malaysia.

“CT's clever use of pioneering 3D mapping in a theatre setting capitalises on one of the key strengths of the new WATCHOUT version: creating a complex effect with an uncomplicated approach,” said Fredrik Svahnberg, market director at Dataton.
