Imagineering Imaginations Contest!!

In the late half of last year, I met three crazy talented people from other majors at my school, and we all were interested in competing in Walt Disney Imagineering's Imaginations contest, which was to design and develop a concept for an attraction to pitch to the company (based on a prompt they gave us). Long story short, I got to do a bunch of boarding and animatic-making, character designs, and concept sketches, and we all pitched in to create a presentation and were selected as one of the six finalist teams to stay a week at Disney Imagineering and pitch our ideas to the Imagineering executives! We recently just finished the contest and placed second in the final judging.


Unfortunately, even though I got word that someone was interested in having me stay for an internship opportunity this coming summer, I had to be considered ineligible since I already made the choice to take a leave of absence from school so I could take a full time job at a studio for a year (not that I didn't want to go to the studio, but just wish I had a clone of myself so I could do both!) Ah well, working right across the street from the Imagineering campus is a pretty good consolation.
