Hollywood Wax Museum Secures Perception NYC to Produce Tribute to Hollywood

March 9, 2011

The Hollywood Wax Museum has selected Perception NYC to develop an original short film that celebrates Hollywood’s cinematic storytelling. Live action segments were recently filmed in Los Angeles and the piece is currently in production at the award-winning agency’s New York studio.

The concept is to bring viewers right into the screen as they fly through climactic moments in movies across genres ranging from Western to Sci Fi and Romance to Horror. The film combines live action with dynamic visual effects and a stirring original score that will keep viewers engaged through every second.

“Perception is uniquely qualified to bring our vision of a Hollywood Tribute to the screen,” says Tej Sundher of Kuvera Partners, owner of the Hollywood Wax Museum. “Their visual effects make fabulous eye candy, and the way they’re designing the transitions is clever and really riveting.”

This year, Perception was nominated for a Sports Emmy for its work on a series of image spots for the NBC Sports Championship Season. The multi-disciplinary agency also created the title sequence for the Marvel epic adventure Thor and crafted the unique environment for the opening and end scenes for the National Geographic Channel’s reality series “Alaska State Troopers”.

Spearheading the Hollywood Wax Museum project is Perception’s Emmy-nominated VFX director Peter Gagnon. The Wax Museum is also collaborating with accomplished composer Jay Flood to produce the original score that will be performed by a live orchestra. Wood has written music for prolific films, television shows and video games, including Transformers (2007 and 2009), A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010), Sims 3 (2009), The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), and over 40 episodes of Desperate Housewives.

According to Sundher, "We are thoroughly enjoying our partnership with Perception NYC and look forward to the debut of our Hollywood Tribute. The film will definitely wow visitors and add to the value of our museums as cultural and entertainment landmarks."
