Shanghai Disney Resort

Sorry I've been of the grid for a while. Here's a couple links about some of the work I've been doing for the past year in Shanghai, China. As Art Director for Adventure Isle this has been the experience of a lifetime. Our park is scheduled to open June 2016. Hope you all get to see and enjoy it as much we had installing it, cheers!

Updated with video links to this project I art directed and installed. Really cool to see the comparison between the old and new show. Lots of memories with the joint Disney/ GM Team I worked with for the last two years... , Enjoy!
