“Chick’s unique creative and technical expertise was one of the keys to our success”
Universal Studios hired Chick Russell as head writer and visual effects producer for “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey”. He delivered an ingenious script and produced a flawless motion control shoot with the Harry Potter cast and crew in London. Chick’s unique creative and technical expertise was one of the keys to our success.

Excellent collaborative team member, good leader, knows every step of creative process and executes well at all levels.

“Extraordinary ability to provide Creative Direction”
I’ve come to rely on Chick Russell’s writing and visual storytelling expertise. Not only has he demonstrated considerable initiative, intelligence, and creativity, but also an extraordinary ability to provide creative direction. Chick has shown superb interpersonal skills when communicating with museum staff, guests, and, most importantly, funders. He is particularly skilled at collaborating with organizations to develop a vision that connects with, and motivates, target audiences.

“Has a way of bringing a story together in an entertaining way”
We used Chick on several projects including the TEA and AAM award-winning Action! An Adventure in Moviemaking and U-505 Experience exhibitions. Chick has a way of bringing a story together in an entertaining way without losing the core of its meaning and significance. Amp it up at certain moments, dial it down at others…he can get in that guest’s head and know when to do either. Can’t wait for another opportunity to create something new with Chick.
