“Fly Chongqing” – Sunac Theme Park Flying Ride

Additional Themed Entertainment Work-Samples

 

WONDERS OF MARS – Flying Theatre EXCERPT “Craters to Home”

Sound design and music by Dan Wool

This is a stereo mix of a work-in-progress flying theatre experience excerpt. The round video, formatted for a 180º domed-theatre, is rough and in various states of unfinished. The VO (closed captioned) describing a Mars mission that showcases the planets landscapes, has not been recorded. The sound design and music is fully developed, and final as a demo.

Another excerpt “Dust & Meteors” is here
Video of WONDERS OF MARS full Ride is here

 

“Wormhole to Mars” (Work in Progress) – Dark Ride

Sound design and music by Dan Wool

This is an excerpt of a preliminary work-in-progress for what would have been a rather complicated dark ride, that is now indefinitely on hold. The visuals are all rough animatics. The client-approved score is more developed than the sound design for this now abandoned dark ride project. The voice recordings are all temp.

Video of the full ride is here.
