|Aztlan Studios - Bringing Film Making and Film Makers to the Desert
“It is our plan to design the theme park specially to integrate the movie production and guest experiences,” said Mark Stuart, CEO and Master Architect of Aztlán Development. “This includes a compelling recreation of an ancient Aztec city complete with accurate representations of the temples, water features, houses, floating gardens; Ulama ball fields, a Zocalo market plaza, and features to facilitate both ancient rituals and modern day concert events for up to 10,000 guests.”
Feature sets within the park will be designed to accommodate film production and park guest participation! One of the sets will be a dive tank which will be used for a Track-Diving Adventure, but will also be used for any underwater filming our photography. Another example includes multiple projection domes with programmable back drops, special effects and transition sequences that becomes a feature attraction within the site’s Pyramid Complex.
“We will start out with an 8,000 sq foot state-of-the-art sound stage with cutting edge cameras, projection, editing rooms and classroom settings,” added Stuart. Everything will be specially designed to encourage guests to view and students to participate with top filmmakers.
Besides developing our own collateral material and 3-D video for the theme park, we hope to create an environment where the students, as professionals, are building the sets, creating the lighting, controlling the sound, and starring in their own productions. There will be six live entertainment stages (100 to 10,000 people) throughout the theme park for all forms of entertainment. There will be hands-on opportunity behind and in front of the cameras. Everyone, students and industry professionals alike, will have a chance to experience, learn, discover, and perhaps, be discovered."
