    I don’t know if I want to visit or build a scale model of the park

    Tilt shift videography is probably the only thing that could make Tomorrowland Speedway look fun and exciting.

    Of course, once you ride it, reality sets in.

    How metaphorical. So this is how Disney views it’s attendees?

    You know tilt shift goes mainstream when Disney shows up at the party.

    This isn’t tilt shift.

    Tilt shift produces a tight DOF. The top and the botom are just blurred. You can tell from a couple of scenes. Particulary the boat coming towards you at 1:38 and the parade going past with the fountain in the bg but still in the center at 1:55. The flag at 0:48 would not be blurry.

    This is however done very well.

    Some spots don’t do so well with the effect, but definitely showing up at the park, the mine ride, and the go-karts all looked appropriately toy-like. Night parade not-so-much.

    That’s not so true. Disney has a history of being pretty innovative.

    I like how they avoided filming any of the long lines.

    Wow my love of tilt shift majick momentarily overcame my general dislike of Disney! But one of my favorite parts was the parking lot filling up, so it didn’t really depend on the actual “attractions”.
