Synn Preps New Short "Staff Entrance"

The studio is readying production on a new short film called "Staff Entrance," a nerdy comedy from the mind of director Paul Pengelly (of The Synn's holiday themed hit "Sleighed"). Obviously, we don't want to reveal much, but we'll say that it involves wizards and a club scene. Here's some photos from a recent pre-production meeting. The movie itself will begin shooting early next month.

Synn Studios Assembles 'The Avengers'

Recently, the Synn's own Nick Montgomery helped compile this special extended trailer for Marvel's upcoming summer blockbuster, The Avengers. Nick used footage from Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, and Captain America: The First Avenger, as well as clips from The Avengers trailer and Super Bowl ad. We think you'll agree, that Nick did a fairly impressive job putting this together. Check it out below:

Scenes From Fan Expo 2011

Once again, Synn Studios took up residence at the National Fan Expo in Toronto this year. Taking time to promote both our Instant FX service and the upcoming second season of MIND'S EYE, there was a lot to see, and do, and talk about at the Synn Studios booth. Check out the slideshow below to get a look behind the scenes.

Check Out INSTANT FX This Weekend at Fan Expo

For the last month and a bit, Synn Studios has been taking a service call INSTANT FX on a test run at conventions across North America: From Polaris in Toronto, ON to GenCon in Indianapolis, IN, to Wizard World in Chicago, IL.

What is INSTANT FX? Just as it sounds. The visual effects team of MIND'S EYE will film you in a 10 second clip, then add the visual effect of your choice and deliver it to you on a USB key in about 30-40 minutes on average. In the time it takes to order a pizza and have it delivered to you, INSTANT FX can give you a video clip of you throwing a fireball, brandishing a lightsaber or getting teleported away a la STAR TREK.

Check out the demo reel here:

INSTANT FX also does photography. You can have your picture taken against the green screen background and have the background of your choice added (and potentially a simple effect like fire or an energy ball as well). You can check out a slideshow of stills below:

This weekend INSTANT FX will be back in Toronto at The National Fan Expo. So if you're planning on attending, make sure to visit the Synn Studios booth, where you'll also be able to learn more about the upcoming season of MIND'S EYE and meet and greet with series' stars.
