Illuminations: Re-Imagined

Every night at 9pm, the lights around World Showcase Lagoon grow dim, and Illuminations: Reflections of Earth, a lights, fire, water, and pyro show springs to life.

During my internship with Disney, I took the opportunity to re-imagine Illuminations, with solely lights, omitting the fancy pyrotechnics, hydrotechnics, and special effects. These pictures are demonstrations of the stage setup I constructed.

The entire setup includes 240 lights, encompassing Elation EPAR panels, PlatinumBeam 15Rs, Clay Paky AlphaWash 1200s, Sharpys, and GLP Impression X4s. All pre-visualization was done in MAonPC using the MA2 full size console.
