Amazing Magic Kingdom Tilt-Shift Video

Disney Parks released an amazing Magic Kingdom Tilt-Shift video. All the beauty of it is coming from the "miniature" effect. Everything and everybody on the video are real but it looks like a model that would have been animated in "stop-motion", the famous 1960's special effects technique. For those of you who wouldn't be familiar with the SFX technique, in stop-motion the object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence.

In fact, this great video was created from a series of photos snapped inside the Magic Kingdom Park by David Roark, manager of creative photography for Disney’s Yellow Shoes Creative Group. And if you want to discover how he did this incredible "miniature" effect i suggest you read his interview on the Disney Parks blog.

But first, let's have a look to this amazing video!

This is fun. I happen to have a screensaver from Uniqlo (the japanese cloths brand) which uses the same technique, but with images of Japan.
