Hurry Home – Lunar New Year Celebration’ at Disney California Adventure Park

Water Show  +   Lights  +   Amusement Park

In this project we had to create content for several water-based surfaces. The quality of the images needed to be compliant with Disney standards, so the challenge was to bring vivid colors to the diluted surface. As there were several water surfaces distributed along the space, we had to create synchronization tasks in order to display the show with its proper water surface.
My role was to bring all motion artists together and make sure we were heading to a common vision given by the director and Disney Executives.

We had to illustrate some famous characters of Disney with magic and harmony, as well as to create a new cheerful and naive character — the little lantern.

One of the highlights of this year’s Lunar New Year celebration at Disney California Adventure park is “Hurry Home,” a delightful, six-minute pre-show presented just before each evening’s performance of “World of Color.” “Hurry Home” follows the journey of a Little Lantern character, returning home for the annual celebration of good luck and fortune. The short is accompanied by a stirring, musical score, created by Academy Award-winning composer Tan Dun (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”).
