"THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD" AT TEA SATE
Geoff Thatcher, our founder and chief creative officer, moderated a panel on Friday Sept. 27 at the 2019 SATE Conference from the Themed Entertainment Association. Entitled "The Greatest Story Ever Told," it explored faith-based attractions for the audience inside Seattle's Cornish Playhouse. From the Grand Mosque to the Vatican and from the Museum of the Bible to Singapore's Haw Par Villa, Geoff and his co-presenters Yael Coifman from Leisure Development Partners; Jonathan Alger from C&G Partners and Andrew Bagley from BONCOM discussed how when it comes to cause-driven experiences, faith is arguably the biggest cause of them all. The goal of the session was to bring together a marketer, architect, writer and number cruncher to spark a conversation about what the themed entertainment industry can learn from those who strive to tell the greatest stories ever told.
WELCOME TO SAVANNAH
We are excited to announce our big move from Ohio to Georgia. Our new creative studio is located on historic Abercorn Street in midtown Savannah. This new location puts us close to the things that inspire us most: family, talent, the beach, a great university, food, trees, a wonderful climate and aviation hubs in Atlanta and Charlotte.
This rendering of our studio is by Zoe Thatcher, one of our first "creative principals" who has now moved from St. Louis where she spent the majority of her time designing dance costumes to work out of our Savannah Studio fulltime. Zoe's work for Creative Principals has involved everything from costume design for the Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi grand opening to uniform design for Quest, an indoor theme park in Doha. We are thrilled she is now working for us full-time.
