Walt Disney’s Imagineers

Walt Disney is probably ranked among the top on the list of inspirational people for those in the creative field. He is definitely among mine.

Disney was a film producer, director, screenwriter, voice actor, animator, entrepreneur, entertainer, international icon, and philanthropist. He has been awarded four honorary Academy Awards, 22 competitive Academy Awards out of 59 nominations, and seven Emmy Awards.

He and his staff have created some of the world’s famous fictional character.

And did you know, he was actually the original voice of Mickey Mouse?

After his death in 1966, the Walt Disney Productions has continued to produce one of the best creative works to celebrate the importance of imagination.

The reason why I’m writing about this today is that I have just recently seen this video of Disney’s idea of “Imagineering” and it blew me away. Who would have guessed this much was put into a theme park?

What the Walt Disney Productions produces isn’t just some kind of cheap entertainment. They offer creativity, energy and inspiration.

      Once you’ve done something remarkable that has an immense effect on the design/advertising/media world. Just being lovely doesn’t guarantee you a spot. 🙂

    You do realize that the classic Disney movies are full of gender role enforcements right? Telling girls across the globe since a young age that they are helpless and need saving from Prince Charming’s, with the exception of Mulan who is very strong. Like what my classmate said, some of them (Sleeping Beauty and Snow White) are literally unconscious while the guy picks them up (reminds me of a house party). All lovely films regardless.

      I am well aware of that, but many of us grew up fine with those movies. It depends on the parenting and other environmental factors as well. If the society they grow up in does not support that view, I think they will just look at the movies as just… well, movies. We grew up with so many fairy tales, but not many of us still believe in one.
