The industry veterans at LifeFormations in Bowling Green, Ohio were tasked with developing a twenty-four minute multi-media theater show, Kalila Adventure, at the Ancol Dreamland in Jakarta, Indonesia.
LifeFormations’ scope included the design and production of twenty-three animatronic characters. It includes a Weigl based control system for the pre show and main show lighting (which included 75 fixtures), video (with 12 track audio) and 256 digital outputs for the animatronics, rain and wind effects, curtains, and mechanical lifts.
Utilizing the open Weigl protocol, they deployed a user control interface via touchscreen to provide easy operation for the theater staff.
A single WEMC-1 ProCommander and eight DIO-32 D-Commander output modules were leveraged to create a unified control system. The solid-state architecture of the ProCommander allows for reliable playback and easy updates.
Animatronics and other effects were were designed and tested using VenueMagic SC+ and then downloaded to the WEMC-1 for standalone operation.
