ORLANDO, Fla. - An independent filmmaker and Full Sail University graduate has managed to make an entire movie at Disney parks without park permission or getting caught.
"Escape From Tomorrow" premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
While studio cameras can't escape detection, scenes from
"Escape From Tomorrow" were shot with small cameras that a lot of tourists already carry around their neck.
It's not hard to find the countless home movies of Disney vacations on YouTube.
In fact, because so many families document trips with cameras, it made it easier for a fake family and director to film "Escape
From Tomorrow" on Disney properties.
In a clip on the Internet Movie
Database, the cast and crew explained how they blended in.
"I didn't even see the
director; he was texting and calling and then we had an AD that was far. I wouldn't even know where they were," actor Elena Schuber said.
A trailer shows a snippet of the black and white
movie, which tells the story of a middle-aged man unhappy with his life and his interest in two teenage girls he meets while on vacation.
In an interview posted online by the Los Angeles Times, director Randy Moore and the main actor explained how they talked about scenes while staying under the radar.
such scene appeared to be shot while riding "It's a Small World."
"We could take one actor individually instead of trying to huddle as a group,"
One of the actors said if anyone forgot a line, Moore had the script on iPads.
The movie is expected to be shown in select theaters around the country starting
Jennifer Guhl at the Enzian Theater said the Enzian does not have plans to screen the movie at this time.
