Tilt Shift Me at Disney Land, Paris.

Tilt-Shift is one of those photo techniques that has been really hot with still photographers for some time now. Lately I have seen a few video pieces that incorporate tilt-shift, but usually the end result is mediocre. It probably has something to do with the subject matter. A tilt-shifted Toyota just doesn’t work.

This commercial for Disney Land Paris, does work however. Shot under the direction of Céranne Gantzer, Disney Land is transformed into a miniature world, and the tilt shift effect heightens the magical feeling that Disney Land is supposed to give you. The saturated color, the re-timed frame rate, the shallow focus all lend themselves so well to this video piece.
