The Little Mermaid

  • Lunt-Fountain Theatre, New York City, 2008

Video design for Disney’s original production of the musical on Broadway.

Sven Ortel created a mixture of hand drawn and original high definition underwater imagery to integrate tightly with George Tsypin’s design and Natasha Katz’s lighting. Through an innovative projection technique and the translucency of the set pieces, the imagery is seen on different surfaces from different angles entirely in focus to mimic the quality of light underwater.
