This was a passion project of mine. I started my entertainment career at the age of thirteen performing in the Christmas parade at Disneyland in California. I’ve been obsessed with being a part of live entertainment ever since, particularly parades. I worked in the Disneyland Entertainment Department while attending college. So, it felt like my life had come full-circle when I was working on this project. The timeline was insane, the budget not huge, but we pulled it all off. While my opinion is highly bias, I do believe this is one of the better theme park parades / spectaculars ever produced. It is truly engaging and fun to watch.
I spent over a year and a half on this project, nine months of which were on-site in Seoul. Working with the international cast and production team has been one of the highlights of my life. I would love to do another project like this!
