Escape from Tomorrow

By Norman Chan

The dark side of Disney World.

Remember that guerrilla film, shot at Disney World and Disneyland without permission and that was the buzz at this year's Sundance film festival? Well it's real, there's a trailer for it, and it's more weird and awesome than I could have imagined. First-time filmmaker Randy Moore spent 10 days in those theme parks with a small cast and crew, shooting this film in secret with DSLRs to avoid attracting attention. Actors used smartphones to trade notes and refer to the script, and had digital audio recorders taped to their bodies to record sound. On an unrelated film festival note, the Toronto Film Festival (TIFF) just released all of the short films from this year's selection on YouTube.
