Paper May Fold into the Waters of ‘World of Color’

posted on March 19th, 2010 by Valarie Sukovaty, Disneyland Public Relations


Paper and water don’t seem like an ideal match, but throw in animation and it works in a very cool way. One type of art form being considered for “World of Color” is paper animation. Local Glendale, California artist Megan Brain has created 3-dimentional paper sculptures of Disney characters that are turned into models or puppets with computer animation. The result is very fun and very unique when it is projected onto a giant water screen. Heather Hust Rivera will give a more in depth update on “World of Color” next week, but in the mean time, take a look at this video and see for yourself.

We’ve booked a trip for April, I’m really hoping they will at least be testing this so we can see it!!! If we miss it I will be so disappointed!

I think that the paper sculpture idea is really cool, but I wish that instead of exaggerating the character’s features, I wish that she would have just drawn the characters exactly as they look in the movie. I get that she is making it her own, but when I go to Disneyland, I don’t want to see anyone else’s interpretation of the Disney characters, I want to see the versions that I saw in the movies.

Justine – If you prefer to see the characters as they appeared in the movie, maybe you should just watch the DVD instead. The great thing about World of Color is that it will bring to life characters in a way we have never seen before.

The art of animation – whether it be paper or computer – all of it should be appreciated. The show will look wonderful with the paper animation.

Really love the results the artist was able to achieve. I think it is interesting that the World of Color show is going beyond what you would expect from a Disney show by incorporating different styles. Looks like I need to plan a trip to Disneyland.
