Trans Studio taps RLH Enterprises LLC & Garner Holt Prodns for Special Effects Action! opening Dec 2011 at Trans Studio Bandung in Indonesia

San Bernardino, California, USA — RLH Enterprises LLC and Garner Holt Productions, Inc. have been signed by Trans Studio to create the special effects and show action systems for Special Effects Action!, a spectacular new live action special effects show at Trans Studio Bandung in Indonesia.

The show will feature live fire effects, spectacular water effects explosions, and massive show action systems which will send cars exploding over twenty feet into the air and crashing back down almost at the audience’s feet. “Trans Studio is pulling out all the stops to produce an audience experience that will equal special effects shows at major theme parks,” said Garner Holt, CEO of Garner Holt Productions, Inc. “Our company has been working closely with RLH for several months to identify the latest effects technologies for Disaster Zone! This amazing show will attract visitors throughout the region and the world.”

Because the sets and props are being built in Indonesia, the project requires close coordination between the American companies and their Indonesian counterparts. Rick Hardenbrook, principal of RLH Enterprises is responsible for design collaboration and seamless integration of the show. “I’ve enjoyed working with Budiman Wijaya, Director, Trans Studio and his team on many different projects over the years,” said Hardenbrook. “Their designers’ unique vision combined with the technical expertise of RLH Enterprises and Garner Holt Productions promises to make this a signature attraction.”

“There has never been a special effects and stunt show like this in Indonesia and we felt we needed to work with an experienced creative team of developers for this particular attraction. We have had a long time working relationship with Rick Hardenbrook (RHL Enterprises LLC) and were very confident that he would be the top man to help develop our “Special Effects Action!” show in Indonesia, “said Budiman Wijaya. “Trans Studio has already set a new standard in Indonesia for family entertainment, and now the entire nation is looking forward to seeing what magic we will wield this coming December.”

The special effects spectacular is scheduled to open on December 15th, 2011.
