Pursue your creative passion, explore arts and entertainment career options, and learn from leading artists and arts professionals during Wintersession 2021. Our January Arts and Media Seminars – JAMS! – offer students the time and space to try something new that would not be possible during the fall or spring semesters.
A collaboration with Garrett Parrish (MIT '17) Associate Production Designer at Walt Disney Imagineering, this two part workshop will begin with a session about environment, queue and attractions design and technology, using Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance as case studies, and continue with an exploration of parade and nighttime spectacular technology, such as floats, projection mapping, fountains and lighting. Expect some hands-on activities. The sessions are a set, but you can opt to take one or both.
Session 1: Technology and Theming in Lands and Attractions
Session 2: Creating a Nighttime Spectacular
