As the CG model of Sleeping Beauty Castle nears it’s end, here are a few interactive virtual reality movies to play with. What you see is basically the final basic form, although some tweaking will be done, and an internal support structure will be created. After that, the CG model will be broken down into its many parts, unfolded, exported, and re-sized before adding graphics in Photoshop.
There are also some final renders and fly-through videos right here.
It’s finally begun, but I’m taking my time. Since I don’t have any elevation plans, I have to do this from many reference photos, hoping to get the shapes and sizes just right.
As the model progresses, I may require some help from anyone who may be visiting the park and are willing to take some reference shots for me. I’m still digging through hundreds of photos online, so I might get what I want on my own. We’ll see. In the meantime, here is a list of items that I will need in the future for artwork:
plaque above castle entrance
external locations of the stained glass story windows
oval windows (front & back views if different) on the top-most tower
Hi-res shots are preferred, but every photo helps.
I was sifting through the news archives, reminiscing over old site designs, contests, and such. Then, I delved into the archive of file on my computer, and I came across the old teaser movie for the Tower of Terror paper model. Enjoy.

Last year (I believe it was last year), I signed the Disney Experience up for site survey and analytics. Just for fun, mind you. Today, I looked at the results, and it’s very interesting to see the activity that’s been going on. Have a look . . .
