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.

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.

Unfortunately because of Dubai geographic location for many of us we won’t be able to experience Dubai Parks & Resorts Ghostbusters Battle For New York (GBI Blog Post, May 6, 2016) in person.

Fortunately because of technology and theme park specific web sites, we can at least somewhat visually experience what its like to “battle” ghosts there.

Theme Park HD recorded for ghostheads (and theme park attendees) about a 5 minute walk through of this trackless Ghostbusters ride.

It might seem a little unusual to associate a national pizza chain with Ghostbusters. As in the past they would have gone together because of dialogue in Ghostbusters II. Just like in the 80s, bustin’ makes Ghostbusters hungry. Even if you aren’t a Ghostbuster, you probably at times enjoy eating pizza while watching Ghostbusters!

Today Business Wire, Papa John’s, and Ghostbusters announced a delicious partnership. Papa John’s pizza will not only be part of next month Ghostbusters (2016), they’ll have a limited product offer and Ghostbusters (2016) related pizza box. Prior to Ghostbusters (2016) release related marketing with TV spots.

Press release after the jump.
