 LANDMARK ENTERTAINMENT GROUP TO PRODUCE FILM
 FOR SAMSUNG'S KOREAN EXPO PAVILION
 Academy Award-Winning Team Assembled to Create
 Multimillion Dollar Simulator Experience
 NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Angeles-based Landmark Entertainment Group has been selected to design a simulator theatre and produce the film for Samsung's "Space and Aeronautics" Pavilion at the Taejon International Exposition 1993.
 The four-minute film will be the culmination of the pavilion's main exhibition "Man's Search for the Stars" and will be projected in a domed environment, utilizing an 8 perf, 70 millimeter format. Landmark will be working with Academy Award-winning companies Dream Quest Images and Metrolight on the film which will include optical motion control photography, and computer-generated images (CGI); Metrolight will be charged with creating the CGI for the film.
 Reflectone Corp. of Tampa, Fla., has been contracted to provide the four simulators for the experience. Reflectone, a major simulator contractor for the commercial airline industry and the federal government, has also provided simulators for Busch Entertainment Corp.
 According to Landmark producer Barry Kemper, "The film is set in the year 2093, when humankind and technology have reached a harmonious coexistence, sharing equal importance in the universe. The futuristic narrative will be packed with mind-boggling special effects, designed with state-of-the-art technology."
 The pavilion will be open throughout the entire Expo, Aug. 7 through Nov. 7, Taejon Science Town, in Taejon City, Korea, and will become a permanent part of the site's Science Park at the conclusion of the Expo. Located on the 26-square-mile Expo site, the Samsung Pavilion will be the centerpiece of the exposition. Landmark was commissioned earlier this year to design the pavilion structure itself.
 Landmark Entertainment Group was founded in 1980 by Gary Goddard and Tony Christopher, who have created some of the most exciting and successful attractions in the industry for clients such as MCA/Universal Studios, Caesar's Palace, Six Flags Corp., Busch Entertainment Corp. and Sanrio Co. Ltd. of Japan.
