We have just finished putting the final touches to this video. Jackie has been burning the midnight oil reviewing the rough clips before she came upon the idea of having two videos to cover Disney. One that would be based around the E ticket shows of each park, namely Fantasmic and Aladdin and another that would be a kind of tour of the parks. On this trip I lost a day of filming due to having to rest due to illness, which meant I had less coverage than I would normally like to have. This video therefore is a gentle introduction to the two contrasting parks in California. I have to admit there is something very special about the California MK. Despite its diminutive size, once you enter the gates it really is like entering a whole new world metres away from the freeway. There is also an added feeling as you stand in the town square and look up at the apartment above the fire station that this is the original home of Disney. I particularly like the lightness of touch and scale here on Main Street and the grand old buildings of New Orleans square, this has to be the best looking area in any Disney Park. We flew into LAX on a KLM flight. On our final day as we enjoyed a meal in the Encounters restaurant in the middle of the airports parallel runways we managed to get some footage of our outbound plane arriving on a wet New Years eve, just shows what juggling the footage around can achieve as this scene now opens the video, quite apt when you consider the music.With regard to the music the track has quite high dynamics so you may need to notch up the volume a touch. Subwoofers and a good set of speakers will help get this music across as the composer intended.
