Once again Ted Ferreira and Bill Johnson at the CD+M Lighting Design Group presented me with an amazing opportunity- this time to come and spend six months onsite as the lighting designer for rides and attractions at the “Worlds Largest Indoor Theme Park” in Dubai. Lighting design and programming for attractions at IMG Worlds of Adventure included Avengers Battle of Ultron, Hulk Epsilon Base 3D, Spider-Man Doc Ock’s Revenge, Thor Thunder Spin, The Velociraptor, Forbidden Territory, Adventure Time Ride of OOO w/ Finn and Jake, and the The Haunted Hotel.
The Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. (Scientific Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network) is a completely immersive experience that brings visitors into the world of The Avengers. Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. is an interactive exhibit experience that allows visitors to participate in a simulated recruitment as if they were being trained as agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Visitors of all ages are granted S.H.I.E.L.D. access to the official S.T.A.T.I.O.N. headquarters and taken deep into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here they will have open access to a vast array of intelligence files, classified studies and experiments that explores the history and scientific origins of Marvel’s The Avengers. Visitors will also be given unprecedented access to some of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s most highly guarded artifacts such as Captain America’s Birth Pod, the Tesseract Portal Device, Loki’s Scepter, a hermetically sealed Chitauri and more, recovered after the Battle of New York.
NASA, the Science & Entertainment Exchange (a program of the National Academy of Sciences), Neuroverse, and Thwacke are all collaborating on the Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. Exhibition visitors will get the chance to map out the stars to find Asgard, learn to operate Iron Man’s suit, witness the neurological effects of Bruce Banner’s transformation into the Hulk, and physically test themselves against Captain America.

Many thanks to Eric Gradman and Christian Chaudhari at VIRSIX for having me to up to light the new Great Forest Challenge at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound WA. Its an innovative and immersive take on the themed attraction- a sort of walking dark ride crossed with a full scale life-sized video game that was great fun to do. I hope it’s a much of a success as it appears to be! Congrats, all!
Big thanks to Ted Ferreira and Sean Whitaker at CD+M Design Group for sending me out as the onsite LD for three weeks at Legoland, Malaysia. Running around a theme park is indeed a great deal of fun…

Yet again Ted Ferreira calls with one of the most intriguing projects ever- to previz and create custom animation of the exterior architectural LED for the new Ferrari World Theme Park in Abu Dhabi.
I couldn’t imagine a more amazing project to work on. Thanks again!
Mediocre video and pix to follow!
I was quite fortunate to be sent to the Beijing on behalf of Ted Ferreira and Patrick Yu at CD+M Design Group to focus and document the grand opening of the Happy Magic Water Park inside the Olympic Water Cube. It was a distinct privilege and an honor to be involved in such a project, and I would again happily drop everything and head to Asia in a heartbeat if the possibility arose. Thank you Sunny and Patrick for your kind hospitality and I hope to work with you both again in the future!
