Jim Hill and I are doing a new video series with former Imagineer Jim Shull. The pilot episode, on how Magic Carpets of Aladdin came to be, is available for preview here.
Jim Shull was Creative Director of Imagineering until retiring in December, 2020. He conceived, designed, and helped implement Aladdin rides around the world. Future episodes of the show will focus on other attractions Jim worked on, including Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and more.
If y’all watch the show, please provide feedback in this thread. Thanks!
I listened. I don’t think I missed the visuals. I believe that each time a photo was mentioned, Len gave a very helpful description so the audio stood up on its own. My feedback is to say that you should continue similarly for visuals in future shows.
It was wholly interesting. Great show @len
Seems like the magic carpet ride was an absolutely perfect fit for Adventureland, MK - needed extra capacity and the extra row provided for that meant that the vehicle had to ‘do’ something else other than go up and down. I can’t imagine ‘believing’ that it is a carpet ride if it didn’t tilt. Necessity made it perfection
‘Camels made from real gold from Eisner’s personal stash’ lolololol
Also, RIP Disney Quest I did get a shot on the Aladdin VR before it closes and I was really really bad at it
Oh and also, I didn’t know that live action Aladdin had a sequel in the works. I wonder if last nights shenanigans will have affected that
Make a choice on how you want to have your background and stick with it throughout the multiple video calls you had. (Blurred or unblurred). It becomes distracting.
LT, your video was a bit washed out with the lighting. JS’s video worked. His lighting was softer. JH’s was darker in his cabin, but it worked.
JH is a great storyteller and historian. I love the stories and the details he researches and comes up with. I am a huge fan of the Jim Hill Media Network of shows/podcasts. Since this is a video series, we need to get JH to look at the camera a little more and sit on his hands.
I can see the Adobe Stock watermark during the credits.
You need to charge for this! This is great content that took up a lot of valuable time. Maybe put it as part of Band Camp or add in a bunch of advertising to monetize it.
