EPCOT: Cultural Preservation & Celebration

This motion graphics composition explores the rich history of cultural preservation and celebration behind The Walt Disney Company with a focus on EPCOT's World Showcase. It explores the first instances in which the message of global harmony took center stage and then transitions into the history of EPCOT and the construction of this permanent World's Fair.

Development

When research on EPCOT was completed, it was decided that the history of World Showcase would be the point of focus. Several storyline ideas were created and the best one was scripted for voiceover. With the script completed, storyboarding began. Each of the main frames in the composition can be seen in the storyboards, which were referenced extensively during production.

It really is a small world after all

With Walt Disney's "it's a small world" being the starting point of this video, and of the company designing spaces that promote global unity, it was the perfect fit for the visuals as well. It was decided that Mary Blair's iconic small world aesthetic would dictate the look and style of the video.
