lightning mcqueen’s racing academy

 I was approached by Pixar’s Theme Park division in April of 2018 to do some storyboarding work on an upcoming attraction for Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Disney World.

Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy, coming to Orlando Florida in Spring 2019, is an experience where Lightning McQueen teaches rookie racers what being a champion is all about.

Some of my work for the project can be seen in the 2018 Disney Channel Holiday special “Disney Parks Presents a 25 Days of Christmas Holiday Party.”

I storyboarded 10 minutes of acting for the experience’s Lightning McQueen animatronic. I also storyboarded pop-up videos of other Cars characters, who will be animated in 3D and will appear on a screen in the final experience.
