This week on the occasion of the Walt Disney Studios Park 9th anniversary, and to celebrate the upcoming Disney Magical Moments Festival opening on April 6th, Disneyland Paris released a never-before-seen video of the resort, shot using the amazing “Tilt Shift” technique.
The tilt-shift technique takes photographs, usually from high vantage points, using selective focus and perspective control to give the impression of a miniture model. All the photographs are then stitched together and edited to create the illusion of a short movie. Post production will then do the rest, oversaturating colours to reinforce the model impression, working on contrasts and even further blurring images.
“A Magical Day at Disneyland Paris” shows vignettes of both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park, including favourite attractions such as Big Thunder Mountain or the new rides in Toy Story Playland, shows and daily parades, including the Fantillusion Parade, from sunrise to nighttime entertainment and fireworks.
More than 125.000 still photographs were taken during the shoot in the parks, although only 4.000 were used in the final edit, over a period of seven months.
