In this episode I discuss the independant film “Escape From Tomorrow”, which was shot inside WDW and DLR without Disney’s permission.
Personally I have no problem with folks shooting narrative films in the parks. Just check out Youtube. People do it all the time. Some are film companies trying to make a name for themselves, others are filmmakers trying to get their foot in the door. None of them go looking for distribution at film festivals or expect to turn a profit from their films beyond, maybe, scoring a job by showing what they can do.
The director of “Escape From Tomorrow” displays a complete lack of respect for the parks, and the people who visit them regularly, he does this film without permission and expects to be rewarded and paid for not getting caught. I make it pretty clear how I feel about this guy, and what Disney should do about it.
Then I talk about what Disneyness is. Some people call it Disney Magic, others don’t even have a word for it, but I talk about what it is to me, and how it works.
