Boardwalk Empire : How they recreated Atlantic City

Boardwalk Empire is the new high-budget TV series on HBO, directed by master director Martin Scorcese. As usual with HBO the quality of the TV series is as good as a Hollywood movie, and so were the special effects to recreate an early last century Atlantic City.

The short video below shows how they did - nothing new technically speaking, but it's so well done that i thought you might enjoy to have a look at it. Go ahead!

Happy New Year to all Disney and more readers !

Hello Everyone! That's it, we're in the last hours of the year - actually from where i'm writing you we're already in 2011(!) and i send to all of you my very best wishes for this new year!

In terms of Disney fan great new rides will open this year - can't wait for DCA's Little Mermaid or the new Star Tours 2 and HKDL will get its own Toy Story Playland! Highly awaited movies like Pirates of Caribbean On Stranger Tides and Cars 2 should be memorable, too.

But who say new year say Season's Greetings card and a friend of mine Imagineer sent me this old WED Enterprises - now Walt Disney Imagineering - Season's Greetings card which is a nice way to end the year and begin a new one!

Again, all my best for 2011!
