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.
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!
After 8 years and over 500 productions with Full Flood Inc. as an Assistant Lighting Designer to Bob Dickinson, Bob Barnhart, and the quintessential Southern Gentleman who is Ted Wells, I have decided to venture out on my own. Highlights with Full Flood include the tremendous honor of preparing the lighting plots and orders for such shows as the 2002 Salt Lake City and 2004 Athens Olympic Opening Ceremonies, Superbowl Halftime shows with Aerosmith, U2, The Rolling Stones, Prince and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and eight straight years of Oscars, Grammys, Emmys and Tony Award shows. I am immensely grateful for the time spent with such fine designers, crews, and production staff and wish Mr. David Thibodeau the very best in his new role.
