Learn about former Disney Imagineer Tim Delaney's creative vision.
The new Titanic – 12,450 Feet Below exhibit “takes people to the ocean floor, a whole new world and a mysterious, awesome place to be,” states Tim Delaney, lead creator of the exhibit. “There, visitors can better appreciate the fascinating human drama and incredible technical story of how Dr. Robert Ballard found Titanic, as well as the powerful impact on the crew’s and public’s imaginations.”
Delaney, a former Walt Disney Imagineer, and Dr. Ballard first met over 30 years ago. They collaborated on EPCOT’s Living Seas Pavilion back in 1985 and have been great friends since then. Now they’ve teamed up to bring a one-of-a-kind, interactive experience that celebrates Titanic’s glorious beginning, examines her undoing and reveals the jubilant moment of her discovery.
As principle of Tim J. Delaney Design Inc., Delaney offers his clients world class creative expertise. During his 34 years at Walt Disney Imagineering, Delaney led teams that designed and constructed over $1.2 billion of Disney Parks and attractions worldwide, including Anaheim, Orlando, Paris and Hong Kong.
Delaney’s many accomplishments and awards include the 2002 Ray Bradbury Award for Lifetime of Creative Excellence and the 1996 THEA Award for Best Attraction: Space Mountain at Disneyland® Paris. He graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design, and is on the Steering Committee for Art Center's Legacy Circle, an alumni-led group of volunteers committed to supporting students through financial contributions; all funds raised are distributed to students through Art Center scholarships.
