Welcome to Regal Entertainment Group

This is a frame from an animation project I was hired to help work on back in 2009.


Regal Entertainment Group, which owns Regal Theaters, Edwards Theaters, and United Artist Theaters, wanted to have their old Roller Coaster Policy and Presentation trailer modernized and upgraded to 4k resolution. The project was managed by SmithGroup Communications.


One of the elements I created was the (roller-coaster) train's dashboard, seen at the beginning of the animation. It was built and rendered using Lightwave 3D. All the animated screens and readouts were created in After Effects as animated sequences and UV mapped onto their given "screen" areas. The finished rendered dashboard element was then comped into the final animation via After Effects.


Regal has the project uploaded on their YouTube Channel. Some of you might recognize it if you live in an area that has REG theaters.
