World of Color
I wouldn't normally tout a theme park attraction on this blog, but I thought this was worth a mention. The weekend before last I had the honor* of attending a "dress rehearsal" of a new nighttime spectacle at Disney's California Adventure called "World of Color". The show takes place on the water in front of the big Ferris Wheel and is quite spectacular. If you've seen Fantasmic or the water show at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, it's kind of like that only an order of magnitude greater. Articulated water spouts, colored lights, lasers, fire bubble, video projections, the works. The show lasts about 30 minutes and never gets boring. At many points during the show they project footage of Disney and Pixar films onto sheets of mist, including some of my work from WALL-E. For some reason, I got a bigger kick out of seeing my stuff on display here than I do on the big screen! Go figure. Anyway, I highly recommend checking out the show if you visit Disneyland/DCA. And if you sit in the front row, you might want to consider bringing a raincoat or a poncho because YOU WILL GET REALLY FREAKIN' WET. You've been warned.
*one of the many perks of working at Pixar, the best being working at Pixar.
