Imagineers share the unusual work of adding sound to Disney attractions in this new video.
Director Michael Coleman recently contacted us about a video he recently produced about WDI sound teams. He takes us behind-the-scenes of Walt Disney Imagineering Studios to see how ride tracks, voice recordings, sound effects, etc. are produced.
See home-made contraptions designed by legendary sound designer, Jimmy MacDonald (first photo above).
See how speakers are disguised with the use of painted scrims.
Jimmy MacDonald is seen here crafting the sounds of a forest fire for Bambi using bamboo.
Even President Obama takes part in the Imagineering process.
Side note: When recording his speech for The Hall of Presidents he said, "are these like wax figures or holograms?"... "Oh robots, that's kind of cool". This is not featured in this video but can be seen here.
