The audio and sound design for the largest indoor theme park ever built (at 153 square meters) was no small feat. Bringing dozens Warner Bros. Looney Tunes, DC Comics and Hanna-Barbera rides and attractions to life as part of the Ears Up Sound Design team for Thinkwell was an opportunity of a lifetime.

Dubbed “a 20 minute love letter to Universal’s fans…from action to animation”, this exciting, new water/pyro/projection show at Universal Orlando’s lagoon is as immersive sonically as it is captivating visually.  The lagoon was completely re-imagined in the summer of 2018 for this “kiss goodnight” from Jurrasic World, Fast & Furious, ET,  Dream Works, Harry Potter and finally the Minions.  Jon was called on by Thinkwell, the show’s producer to wrangle the 96 speaker sound system and to mix the soundtrack on-site which combined music, dialogue and sound design from over 20 different films along with original custom music by Carl Johnson.

USS’s 2,700 seat Pantages Theater has been transformed year round into a “Sesame Street” live theatrical experience with 3 new shows starting Halloween 2017 with “Trick or Treat on Sesame Street”. The Christmas season will warm hearts with “Oscar’s Grouchmas” and in January 2018,  Elmo and company celebrate the power of imagination with “Elmo’s TV Time” as “Jim Magination” and the beloved Sesame St. characters transport the audience into the most incredible TV shows they can imagine.  Jon Baker Productions produced the soundtracks and directed the Muppet voice talent for all 3 shows.
