Disney's The Little Mermaid was Eagan Summer Community Theatre's first major foray into using projection design a more immersive alternative to traditional scenic drops. Through subtle movement, refracted light effects, and computer-generated ocean landscapes, audiences became fully immersed in an underwater world. To achieve as cohesive an effect as possible, I worked closely with the scenic designer, charge artist, and lighting designer throughout the design process.
