The film industry seems to be one sector that is always elevating to new heights, forever in search of its next great iteration. Every new year in film brings with it an all-new era in film and videography excellence. One of the most beloved and prominent film empires in all the world is Disney. This is a film studio that got its great start with animation classic ‘Snow White’ in 1937. In the years since, the animation studio went on to create perhaps the longest (and still ongoing) streak of cinematic success ever to emerge from a film studio. Beloved by generations, Disney is a company that continuously brings the magic to the people. With each new film, it has further cemented its position as a glowing empire in the world of film. Renowned, even infamous, for its animation sensations on the big screen, Disney has grown to become a leading competitor in live-action films, and now, with the wake of digitalisation ramping things up, computer generated imagery as well (CGI).
Many of Disney’s newest films are powered by this computer-generated videography, as well as some of the world’s most impressive filming skills to date. Disney has been a company to inspire for generations. Nearly a hundred years since its humble but promising beginnings, Disney has now made more films than any other film company current in existence. And now, thanks to the latest developments and further advancements of cinematography and videography, new companies are embracing the new frontier in film, reaching for the stars the same way that Walt Disney did all those years ago. Companies are coming out of the woodwork (think companies like San Diego Video Production), heralding the same promise that Disney first did. The key difference? The age these companies are entering. Today, the world of film is more digitally-focused, with technologies driving much of the magic we see and hear as viewers and listeners.
Disney has gotten to the point now that it has several films in production at any given time, but even still, 2019 is already proving to be the film empire’s biggest cinematic year in a long time. There are ten Disney films scheduled for release this year, with a few of them already having their cinematic release in early 2019 (‘Endgame’, for one). Of course, this raging cinematic outpour is partially due to Disney obtaining other film companies (Pixar, Marvel, Lucas Film, Fox, National Geographic Partners, etc), but nonetheless. The larger the team, the bigger the films – and the more of them too. Apart from animation fixations like ‘Toy Story 4’ and ‘Frozen 2’ due out later this year, most of this year’s Disney cinematic release arsenal is powered by CGI videography. Live-action peppered (or completely saturated, in some cases) with CGI videography has become the new norm for Disney, and this year is the perfect showcase of its varied talents and skills in the world of cinema and film.
Disney has mastered the art of CGI videography. Once a film technology that was semi-realism at best, CGI has evolved to become a stroke of cinematic genius – when it is used right. And perhaps no other film company does CGI as well as Disney these days. From the CGI power in previously released films like ‘Tarzan’ and ‘The Jungle Book’, to new films set for release later this year – ‘The Lion King’, for one – Disney has proven time and again that it is capable of mastering new film technologies, while keeping its age-old magic alive. As we propel ourselves further and further into the digital age, we find ourselves facing a new era in film and videography. CGI has been a prominent feature in some films for quite some time now, but in the last few years it has effectively kicked into high gear, with Disney becoming one of the most masterful in terms of its adequate use.
Disney is a film studio that has earned its place as a leading empire in the world of film. With the release of its first feature-length film in 1937 (‘Snow White’), Disney began to establish itself as a maker of magic. Today, this same title holds true, as Disney continues to bring cinematic sparkle to our screens and into our hearts. The film industry has never been as advanced or as competitive as it is today, yet Disney still firmly holds its place at the top of the industry. Having acquired multiple successful film companies over recent years, Disney is now also a powerhouse. Now, as we enter the digital age, Disney is again leading the way, this time with CGI videography power. This year alone, Disney is releasing up to ten films, and most of them are powered by CGI videography. Films from the Marvel universe, the Star Wars realm, the National Geographic wonderland, and the Disney and Pixar vaults, are gracing our screens, and as viewers we are revelling in the stunning visual effects. This is a new frontier in film, and Disney is driving its development and further advancement.
