FAR Out! Creative Direction

FAR Out! Creative Direction was established in 2008 with the purpose of providing two important and invaluable services to the themed entertainment industry and the museum world.

The first is to assure as a director that a project’s core concepts have been organized into a well-defined storyline that provides a clear vision to be followed during implementation. Further direction is provided to assure that the proper technologies have been identified and explored for their seamless integration and support of the established storyline as well as providing his talents as a giant screen film maker in the production of such special venues.

The second is to provide continued directorial guidance for the effective delivery of an experience or story that maintains the initial concept and vision of the client. On-site direction will guide the integration of all show elements, sculpting them into an exciting product by maximizing the full potential of all supporting technologies with the speciality format film media.
