Ghostbusters: ATC Concept Art

gbsatcopentrapconceptart

Senior Illustrator Shae Shatz worked on Ghostbusters: Answer The Call concept art. Recently Shae Shatz shared twenty Ghostbusters: ATC illustrations at the Ghostbusters section of her site.

From Shae Shatz:

GHOSTBUSTERS WAS AN AMAZING OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH A GREAT GROUP OF TALENT. UPON WORKING WITH PRODUCTION DESIGNER JEFFERSON SAGE, WE QUICKLY FOCUSED ON DEVELOPING A VISUAL LANGUAGE FOR THE GHOSTBUSTERS EQUIPMENT. STARTING WITH THE RAT TRAP, WE WERE SEARCHING FOR SOLUTIONS THAT WOULD SUPPORT GHOSTBUSTERS MODEST ROOTS THROUGH OBJECTS THAT WERE BUILT OUT OF REPURPOSED AND OFTEN HEAVY-DUTY ELECTRONICS. WITH THESE PILLARS IN MIND FELLOW ILLUSTRATOR ANNIS NAEEM AND I WERE COLLABORATING CLOSELY TO CREATE CONSISTENCY BETWEEN THE OBJECTS HE WAS DESIGNING AND THE ONES I WAS MAKING.

With respect to Shae Shatz we won’t share any additional concept images at our site. We highly encourage ghostheads to spend some time at Shae Shatz Creative.

Ghostbusters ATC Roleplaying ID Cards

pattytolanrpgidcard

In 1986 West End Games published Ghostbusters™ A Frightfully Cheerful Roleplaying Game. One of the things this one of a kind Ghostbusters game book came with were ID cards for the Ghostbusters, Janine, and Dana. Sorry Louis.

That was pretty much it, (that I know of) until a new Ghostbusters movie was released during Summer 2016.

If you or your RPG buddies have been waiting to add the newer Ghostbusters and didn’t because of lack of equipment cards the wait is finally over.

Playmobil (US) and Ghostbusters Mania present the press release for Playmobil’s Ghostbusters play sets!

Over the last few weeks there have been many rumors about paranormal events and eerie apparitions. Now ghosts and spooks everywhere have to take care: the PLAYMOBIL Ghostbusters are finally here! The Ghostbusters Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore have just moved into children’s play rooms to join forces with their fans small and large. They are ready to go on the hunt for ghosts!

Lately there have been reports of mysterious noises, strange sightings and floating pieces of furniture in the PLAYMOBIL universe. Green slime started to appear everywhere! These inexplicable phenomena caused quite a stir and many speculations – even the police were at a loss to explain them. Up-to-date accounts seem to verify, ghosts are responsible for the commotion: the Ghostbusters™ Firehouse sounds the alarm! Luckily, rescue is at hand as the Ghostbusters reach any location in a heartbeat with their Ecto-1. Whether Slimer or Terror Dogs, the iconic parapsychologists can track down any ghost with their PKE meters, no matter how well it is hiding. With the Ghostbusters’ equipment, ghosts can be discovered and captured anywhere from the play room to the kitchen cupboard, and even in the attic. But wait! The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is still haunting the city…will the Ghostbusters manage to defeat their strongest enemy to date?

Ghosts everywhere beware! The PLAYMOBIL Ghostbusters are supported by countless little Ghostbusters in the real world and with their proton wands and traps at the ready, the hunt for ghosts can now commence!

Heide Park Resort Ghostbusters Content

Pascal Hendriks, an honorary Ghostbusters: Dutch Division (Facebook) member visited Heide Park Ghostbusters 5D (German Language) ride. Pascal filmed and shared the Ghostbusters area from Heide Park (German Language).

This is just the exterior Ghostbusters part and not the actual 5D ride. Which wouldn’t be in 5D if we could just watch a video, spoiling a ride experience for ghostheads.

Ghostbusters Dimension (GBI Blog Post, May 12, 2016) from The Void was originally exclusive to New York City. Ghostbusters is international and so is hyper-reality. Nearly a year later so is Ghostbusters Dimension,

Currently if you’re in Utah or you know Dubai, your wait into the Ghostbusters Dimension is over!

ahugoawardlogo.jpg

Tor.com (as opposed to giant slors dot org) wrote and shared the Hugo Awards finalists for various science fiction media and respective categories. Ghostbusters: Answer The Call is in the category of “Best Dramatic Presentation – Long Form” Which is personally interesting as I never think of Ghostbusters being ‘typically’ dramatic.

Ghostbusters, screenplay by Katie Dippold & Paul Feig, directed by Paul Feig (Columbia Pictures/LStar Capital/Village Roadshow Pictures/Pascal Pictures/Feigco Entertainment/Ghostcorps/The Montecito Picture Company)

Ghostbusters: ATC is up against genre movies such as Arrival, Deadpool, and (Star WarsRogue One. Interestingly all those movies are also competing with Netflix series, Stranger Things and Hidden Figures, a movie based off a book, which was written because of real people who could have worked here if GBI had been established in 1965.

Ectomobile Workshop Manual To Be Published

gbsectomobileworkmanual

Ghostbusters International has had an Ectomobile workshop manual for the last few decades. It has been brought to our attention since the jingle of the year 2000 we should make our expertise available to franchises and car enthusiasts. Like a great peace talk debate, (over delicious sponsored food and beverages) how we were going to accomplish this was up on a lift for years. At least since our 30th anniversary the solution was already in our libraries.

Our also successful associates at Inside Editions knew just what to do. To make a technical manual about an iconic car more enjoyable we brought Troy Benjamin and Marc Sumerak along for the ride.
