Daniel Goldenshtein ’12 writes, “I’ve recently worked on several nighttime spectaculars at Universal Studios Hollywood in the magical Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I had the privilege of working with incredibly talented designers, technicians, and engineers to bring to life the four houses in Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle. We brought holiday cheer and joy in Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle during Christmas in the Wizarding World. Most recently we explored the darker undertones of the film franchise by bringing the ominous Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle to life nightly, topped off with an awe-inspiring finale featuring an aerial drone effect.”
