I worked with IP holder Legendary while serving as Attraction Designer, Media Art Director and Concept Artist on this media dark ride. This ride opened in Jakarta as part of the Trans Studio Cibubur indoor theme park.
To set the tone for creative intent and action, I created the initial storyboard and then this animatic for the opening media scene on Road Rage. I then oversaw a dedicated storyboard artist and guided our media vendor on previsualization and final media and sound synchronization while coordinating deliverables though the ride vehicle animation and our ride vehicle vendor.
Below is an early previsualization animatic I created, set alongside the final ride through video. I used this previs model as a basis for collaboration with our media vendor and sound designer to ensure that each media sequence matched up with intent and the ride vehicle programming.
