Brunch with Gray Frederickson & Friends
Aztlán Development will unveil their plans for Aztlán Studios on Sunday, August 2nd at Fantasy Springs Resort.  Join us for a Special Sunday Brunch with Gray Frederickson and Friends as we also commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Godfather Trilogy.
Gray Frederickson, along with his good friend Francis Ford Coppola, was involved in the production of all  three Godfather movies, winning the Oscar for Godfather II.  
The Special Sunday  Brunch will start at 1 PM on the 12 Floor of the Resort, and be a gathering of VIPs, movie and studio executives, politicians, foreign dignitaries, educators, and celebrities. Brunch will be prepared by award winning Chef Freddy Reiger, and Champagne will be provided by Coppola Winery.
Aztlán Studios, set inside the Aztlan Theme Park Resort, will be a collaborative effort of Frederickson, Aztlan Development, the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians, local colleges, and an illustrious group of movie and entertainment professionals. We will announce some of the movie projects slated for the area, including a sizzle reel on Frederickson's new documentary Unconquerable, and LIVE CINEMA produced with Coppola.   

Frederickson is from Oklahoma and a graduate of Oklahoma University. He moved back home to established an award winning film program in his hometown at Oklahoma Community College (OCCC), one of the best film schools in the country along with USC, Full Sail, and Chapman. The plan is to develop a successful formula in Coachella Valley’s East End which is rapidly becoming a world class entertainment Mecca.

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."
