The second of two sequences I storyboarded for the Star Journey ride developed by Forrec for the Wuhan Movie Park. This sequence was challenging to envision, as a journey through the surface of a star is something I have never seen before! Inspiration came from storm clouds and a trip I once took with my father, a former test pilot for Pratt & Whitney. In the small Mitsubishi Diamond jet he was piloting, we passed between two layers of cloud that were connected by massive pillars. Sitting in the cockpit as we banked around skyscraper-sized cloud formations is one of the most surreal experiences I can remember.
This was another project where I got to help conceptualize the ride film and write the beat-sheet for the experience. The final ride vehicle design I incorporated here was by my friend and colleague Tim Flattery.
