Ever wondered how imagination becomes reality with the beloved attractions at Walt Disney theme parks? Want to understand how design influences how we have come to perceive “The Happiest Place on Earth?” Join us Wednesday, April 19th at 6:00 pm as we host former Senior Show Designer for Walt Disney Imagineering, Don Carson. He has directed projects like Splash Mountain, Mickey’s Toontown, and Blizzard Beach. Following his time as an Imagineer, Carson has applied his design skills to computer games, the theater, and other media. Carson’s focus is bringing design principles, such as the uses and advantages of composition which allow the artist to control the audience’s attention, to projects all over the world. Don’t miss this exciting talk in which Carson will discuss his career in theme park design, the role of design in other mediums, as well as give us an exclusive look into new work for favorites like Harry Potter, DreamWorks, The Muppets, and Disney!
