Multimedia Effects in the Haunted Mansion workshop
Instructor: Chris Weisbart
************WINNER BEST SPECIAL EFFECTS CLASS – 2012**************
Sunday October 26th, 2014
Arguably the most multimedia-rich experience at Disneyland is the Haunted Mansion, and although over 40 years old, it still leaves visitors scratching their heads as to how the effects were produced. In this 3-hour workshop, Chris Weisbart, multimedia artist, hardware hacker, (and lead artist of last year’s Alvarado Caverns and Mystery Theater), shows how the Disney Imagineers created this incredible attraction and discusses different ways you can use some of the same techniques at home for your own ghoulish Halloween effects. Included in the class will be a collaborative construction of one of the more interesting effects in the ride: the floating head of Madame Leota!
