F/X, as the name connotes, are presentations of wonder and imagination.
Water F/X can be as simple as simulated rain, as delicate as blooming "water
flowers" or as technically demanding as a "geothermal geyser",
dynamically erupting with water, mist, steam and sound effects. STO
has specialized in developing water F/X that seize the viewer's attention,
be it a thrashing, submerged aquatic creature, a floral pattern of
shaped water, a soaring water column or surging, whitewater rapids.
design forte is combining engineering skills and creative imagination
to develop these water F/X. Testing and "mock up" models
are used as a tool to achieve the necessary perfection of these magical
awarded by Disney, MCA, Universal, Opryland, Caesar's Palace, Windsor
Casino, etc., have produced water displays that are exact technically
and visually spectacular effects.
