Ice Age: The Exhibition
Embark on a scientific journey with the popular Ice Age movie characters - Manny the woolly mammoth, Sid the sloth, Diego the saber-toothed tiger, and of course Scrat the prehistoric squirrel through a series of immersive Pleistocene ecosystems. Renowned paleontologist Dr. Lindsay Zanno is our field guide and challenges visitors to join her investigation into the ice age. Each gallery features hands-on interactives that use scientific techniques to help build a strong picture of the Pleistocene world to promote an understanding of our planet’s changing climate.
For this European traveling exhibit, Brave New Pictures created two large format 4-D theater shows with 5.1 surround audio, a series of field station touch-screen videos + display menus, digital interactives, gallery soundscapes, original music, and television commercials. In addition, BNP worked with 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios to facilitate the repurposing of animation originally used in the Ice Age films. BNP replaced the backgrounds of layered files with newly created scenes that support the exhibits’ narrative, while coordinating translation and recording of foreign language voice replacement for these well-known characters.
