The Atlantean Code has been cracked!
12.06.2013
In IMAGINAERUM - THE MOVIE we hid a secret message in one of the scenes with Gem and Ann (check out the painting on the wall of old Thomas' room). Now the code has been deciphered by STEFANO MANGONI from Italy.

This is an incredible achievement since we thought this secret would remain with us for years!

As promised in the secret message, he will be rewarded with "a Treasure", which includes a canvas of the IMAGINAERUM album cover artwork signed by the whole band + 2 concert tickets with a backstage access + Meet & Greet with the band to any show he wants to come on our next World Tour 2015 - 2016.

Huge congratulations, Stefano!!

NIGHTWISH


Below some thoughts from the Italian master detective:

"Well, I was watching IMAGINAERUM for the second time because the first time I watched it with subtitles so I didn't enjoy the movie fully. So the second time I focused on the wonderful images.  
 
Then I saw it, the Atlantean code.  
 
I recognised immediately the code because when I was little I learned it and used it to write secret messages with my friends and a diary. Atlantis is one of my favourite Disney movies ever.  
 
Then I took a screenshot of the code but at first I thought I couldn't decode it because it was very tiny. It took me a couple of days to discover that the frame was upside down.  
 
Then I spent an hour translating the single words one by one. It wasn't very easy because the screenshot was a bit pixeled (I bought the DVD version of IMAGINAERUM so the quality is a little bit lower than on the blu-ray) and because English is not my first language.  
 
When I translated the first line "To find a treasure be..." I got so excited  that I had to wait some minutes to recover myself from the emotion of realizing that I found something "big"!  
 
The morning after I ran to the postal office and sent my mail to the shown address immediately.
 
This has been a great experience!"
