About nWave Studios
nWave Studios, an associate company of StudioCanal, is the first fully
integrated digital studio in the world specializing exclusively in the
production and distribution of immersive stereoscopic/3D films. The studio's
history dates back to 1994, when it was founded by Ben Stassen and D&D
Entertainment Group, an independent TV production company. The Belgian company
quickly established itself as the world's leading independent producer and
distributor of specialty films for location-based entertainment and
institutional venues. Over the last 15 years, nWave has become a leader in
these market segments, having handled the sales and marketing of an impressive
catalog of 50 plus titles (e.g., "The Little Prince 4D," "African Adventure
3D," "Volcano Mine Ride," "Turtle Vision 4D" and "Haunted Castle 3D"). In
2008, the company produced its first feature-length 3D animated film, "Fly Me
to the Moon" ($50M in box office gross), followed two years later by "Sammy's
3D Adventures" ($85M in box office gross). In 2011, nWave secured a
co-production, co-financing and worldwide distribution deal for four new
feature-length 3D animated films with Paris-based Studio Canal. nWave Studios
is headquartered in Brussels (Belgium) with a satellite office in Los Angeles
(Calif.). For more information: http://www.nwave.com
