Lilo & Stitch title sequence

The title sequence for Lilo & Stitch, is full of beautiful special effects. As the director of special effects on the film, I had to design and direct a wide variety of special effects for this sequence. Subtle, realistic reflections of the Hawaiian dancers on the floor, elaborate water surfaces, splashes and waves, a couple of very challenging underwater 'looking up' scenes, complete with lens flares, bubbles, backlit effects, and refracted light dancing in the shallows....it was a fantastic experience made all that much better by the fact that we flew to Hawaii for a research trip!
