I have to preface this by saying that I am quite the fan of whimsical. Whimsy appeals to me almost always, so it’s quite obvious that I would be in love with Disney’s whimsical and celebrity-driven campaign the Disney Dream Portraits done by celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz.
Perhaps my love of Disney stems from growing up in the Golden Era of Disney animated movies, as well as my relatively close proximity to Disneyland. Even in my twenties I am always ready for a trip to Disneyland.
Of this group, my favorite picture is Jack Black, Will Ferrell, and Jason Segal as the Hitchhiking Ghosts from a Haunted Mansion. Brilliant idea.
Kudos to Disney for coming up with such a rapturous campaign that garners attention and is thoughtfully put together. Great marketing!
Here is the follow up to my original posting about the Disney Dream Portraits by Annie Leibovitz. I think that the Evil Queen and Mirror are my favorite since Olivia Wilde does a pretty amazing job emulating a cartoon character.
In my humble opinion, this is one of the best marketing campaigns of all time. Such a fantastic job of bring fantasy to reality, which is what Disney does best.
Consumption absolutely terrifys me. Whenever I think about the fate of our planet I must admit I get a bit panicky.
I get a little worried. I realize how blissfully unaware the north american population espicially is of where our goods come from and go to. I watched the story of stuff and my fear has only increased. It seems that consumption is the root of many problems considered “crisises.” Corporations are forcing this consumption by making products meant to break and keeping prices low by taking short cuts that harm the enviroment and the workers. I sometimes ponder the thought what if we just went back to local community living. Everything you used was from your area, would it be better? Have we progressed pass the point as a society than we were supposed to? Those are theological questions for a later time. What is important is the people living in this cycle. The people, our planet and our future which are all seen as expendible.
Greetings, Tumblr patrons. I joined a social justice class in my school this year and it has presented me with a couple of complexes. First let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am youngish, naive and completely undecided. I live on a horse farm and I have had a pretty good life. At one point we were definitely poor, but we always have had a house and currently we are doing great. I feel I have always been privileged by having two parents that love me and a close knit family. With these issues I am learning about in social justice I think I almost do not have the right to have a opinion because I have led such a privileged life. Very few of these issues I am hearing about, I have never experienced. Politically I am right in the middle. This leaves me in the middle on many issues. I try to understand the issue from every angle. After looking a the issues through different lenses I become even more unsure on my opinion on the topic. From this class I really want to gain a perspective that I can follow through with action. This class has opened me up to some great scores of social justice new. It has been taking over my life a little bit. My favorite story I have read so far was about the pope saying gays and abortion are not the church biggest concern. i think this a baby step towards tolerance. I guess that is my perspective tolerance, respect and understanding. http://www.takepart.com/article/2013/09/19/pope-said-something-dope-church-needs-stop-fixating-gays-abortion
