Aspiring screenwriter Randy Moore came up with the idea of shooting a movie on the fly at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. The fruit of his labors, Escape From Tomorrow, screened last night in the NEXT sidebar of the Sundance Film Festival. Various park locations figure into the narrative, according to the LA Times, including Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin, Space Mountain, a Main Street parade and Epcot Center. The black-and-white movie about a father’s descent into madness was made without cooperation or approval from Disney, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out. The movie described as “surrealistic and genre-defying” screens again tonight, tomorrow and on January 24th and 26th. It doesn’t reveal much, but here’s a clip:
