DreamVision lit up the sky with the largest original pyrotechnic symphony In the Southwest. The multimedia entertainment company has been producing these types of events, films and musical productions for 15 years. Although the “new kid on the block” in animation, DreamVision’s advanced proprietary CGI animation process, which has been under development for nearly 12 years, is bound to rock the market in animated films!
On June 1, 2013 in downtown Fort Worth, DreamVision hosted “Celebrate Fort Worth” that included 6 hours of music from popular oldies bands, featuring Danny and The Juniors (“At The Hop”), The Marvelous Marvelettes (“Mr. Postman”), Johnny Thunder (“Loop De Loop”) and The Drifters (“Under The Boardwalk”). The event included food and activities for the kids as well. After the sun set, the crowd was wowed with a spectacular fireworks show synchronized to “Celebration in the Sky,” an original composition by award-winning composer Rick Silanskas and performed live by the Christ Chapel Bible Church Symphonic Orchestra.
“It’s a gift to the City of Fort Worth from The DreamVision Company,” said DreamVision President Vince Silanskas as to the reason for the lavish party. And that’s not all…the company had a huge announcement to share as huge as their celebration. The big news: DreamVision is moving its global headquarters from Orlando to Fort Worth and plans to build an 80,000 square foot movie studio, expected to cost $20-25 million. Although previously announced in October 2011 that they would be moving to Dallas, the company has since been wooed by the City of Fort Worth as well as a handful of unnamed investors.
Rick Silanskas also told attendees of Celebrate Fort Worth of their intention to build a $2 billion Disney style theme park in South Africa in the next 2-4 years, followed by a park In North Texas in 5-6 years and then another park in Asia. With the North Texas DreamVision entertainment facilities, Silanskas hopes to make Fort Worth the “family entertainment capital of the world.”
Inspired by the late Walt Disney as a child, Rick Silanskas ironically turned down a job at Disney as a young man to pursue his own career aspirations. It is quite fitting that Silanskas would later team up with former Disney executive Ron Logan, who now serves as the Chief Creative Officer of DreamVision. Logan is the former Executive Vice President of Walt Disney Entertainment and founder and first president of Disney Theatrical, (“Beauty and the Beast: A New Musical”).
DreamVision produced an award-winning short in 2009 entitled “Hooked,” which showcases their new CGI process. They are planning a new film, “Unsung Hero” which they plan to premiere in Fort Worth.
Silanskas believes there is a need for film and television with positive values; he looks forward to providing content that parents can comfortably watch with their children without having to explain inuendos and adult situations. According to Silanskas, “It should be a pure, wholesome experience for the whole family.”
The company plans to open temporary offices in downtown Fort Worth in September 2013. The site for the amusement park has not yet been announced.
