    Re: Disney Imagineering Question

    Thanks everyone! I have typed a page and a half of an idea but afraid to share it due to some people may taking it.

    Also: I can draw but like if I think of an Idea I cant draw it because I dont have a picture of some sort next to me to look at.

    Re: Disney Imagineering Question

    Who's gonna take it? Really? That's what cracks me up about some people on this board, being protective and secretive with their ideas because they want to use them "when they get to WDI". Don't be silly. It's not a big deal to post them on the internet, I have yet to see ANY ideas posted around here get fully realized in the parks. I wouldn't be that worried about someone taking my ideas; it would be quite obvious that if they did steal something, you back it up with the original source. Chances are slim anybody here gets into WDI, and chances are even slimmer that you get to implement your ideas and have them come to full fruition; you're gonna get assigned to someone else's project. But the ideas you have now, if you fully develop them with concept art and good documentation can make good portfolio pieces.

    This is sadly, very true.
    This is a great post, overall though, in ways of advice.

    It's the sad truth, but you should still follow your goal. You don't want to end up working at a balloon stand somewhere when you're 80 wondering "what if I persued my dream?" Some food for thought...

    Re: Disney Imagineering Question

    Ok...let me set a few things straight..and if you still have more questions...PM me

    First of all you don't exactly have to be the best artist..but you do have to know to show your ideas..whether with a computer or other way.

    Secondly..there is one Lanscaping Imagineer...she is in charge of designing horticuture and hardscape. She does all the new designs, but then hands them over to horiticulture to take care of. She relies a lot on the Lanscape Design Specialist in Horitculture to find the right plants. So it is the 2 of them that work together a lot of times. You need to know your plants very well and know what works and all. School is always good, but you definitely need experience..especially if you want a job designing..not just planting. There are many levels in the horiculture dept. If you have the knowledge and all.. you can come in at a higher level or atleast work your way up pretty well.

    Besides all the knowledge..you have to have a good work ethic. You need to be able to bring something new to the table but also know how to stay within the story line.

    As for Valley Crest..they don't do much for designing anything at the park...you will see them doing the landscape at the parking structure and areas outside of the resort. They are subcontracted by Disney to do that stuff. They just maintain the outside areas of the resort.

    Hope this info helps...and remember...just PM if you have specific questions...

    I know, it's nice, I've seen his work too. Thing is, mine is pretty good too, and I don't mind competition from the best. He's probably a slightly better artist than I am, and has done some really cool Disney inspired models and stuff that I've never done, but I've got lots of other skills.

    I was one of the best students in my year in Architecture at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and did my thesis project on themed design. I have done construction documents for probably over 100 buildings and designed over 30 more in my career and I'm still a young man, having worked in architecture since I was in high school. My sister and I also developed a mini casino in Washington State, a themed project which I designed completely, everything from graphics to architecure to interior design.

    I recently had an interview with BRC Imagination Arts, so I know some people in the industry have been pretty impressed with my portfolio. Anyway, I think Nautilus and a few other MCer's are really talented and I honestly very much hope we both get our dream job and get to work together one day.

    Re: Disney Imagineering Question

    Lots of competiton going on I see haha.

    Thanks Key for that info.

    Also how should I design a portfolio? Like what If I had an Idea then they build it? Like if someone had an Idea of an Ariel ride and they are building it? Do you just take it off your portfolio?
