Showtime Pictures, a leading operator of photography concessions at major tourist attractions, has announced BrickArt Studios, the result of a new collaboration with Photobricks. BrickArt offers a new immersive experience and revenue generator for attraction operators which provides an educational and entertaining experience for the entire family.
Neither a gift shop nor a photo concession, the proposition enables leisure operators to provide guests with a customised piece of merchandise. Visitors are engaged with the process by providing a photo of choice from their mobile device, which is then turned into a unique piece of art from thousands of single stud bricks.
Showtime Pictures says the uniqueness of the concept allows BrickArt to be positioned independently from other retail offerings, potentially as its own standalone attraction.
BrickArt Studios is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Showtime Pictures, created in a joint collaboration between Showtime and Australia-based firm Photobricks.
Photobrick managing director Eyal Rael says “Photobrick is a fun experience and the ultimate gift to every occasion. We capture life journeys, memories, emotions through a new trend. The initial response has been overwhelming, our customer enjoys an artistic and joyful moment with their family and friends in a bonding activity and celebrate together as their memory comes to life brick by brick.
“We are very excited about our collaboration with Showtime Pictures’ BrickArt Studios concept. Their thirty years of experience and reputation in the attraction industry will make this venture successful in a very short time period.”
CEO of Showtime Pictures Kemal Arin adds “As we always look into creative ways to find new technologies and revenue growth in our industry, the BrickArt Studios concept was a no-brainer.
“This is the type of product for the entire family, very artistic and engaging. Our visitors would love to take one home and remember it forever.”
Showtime Pictures recently celebrated three decades in the leisure industry, operating concessions for high-profile venues including the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and Georgia Aquarium.
