    Smile Re: Allain Littaye - Lights Camera

    Greetings from the real Hollywood, California ! ! !

    Another fine article by Monsieur Littaye.

    The only things that I thought looked weird were the painted-on palm trees in front of the Hollywood Hills - kind of ruins the illusion; the El Capitan Theater, which Disney owns in Hollywood would be behind you or on your right side if you were looking up towards the Hollywood sign, so technically it's on the wrong side of the street; The Sorceror's Hat peeks out above the architecture they're trying to pull off.

    I for one think the one-sided facades will be more interesting to European guests than the DCA visitors who come from Southern California. It doesn't work at DCA because it's not a real set on a real movie studio and it just comes off as fake. In Europe, I think as long as there's an emphasis on 'learning about film-making' at the park, it works.

    Certainly not the best imagineering can do but a world of difference from what was there before.

    Looks better than DCA's Hollywood Pictures Backlot.

    Its definitely better than what was there before. I'm just disappointed in the total execution. It looks great from the correct angle, but it appears that all you have to do is move a bit to the side and you can see that its all just facades. Now if they find a way to make it feel natural by theming it as a movie set then maybe it will work. It still just seems way beyond what both MGM and Universal have pulled off with their theming years ago.

    Absolutely.

    What people who have never been to DSP can't comprehend is just how concrete and desolate the park looked like. DCA is TDS compared to this mini-park across from the most detailed, beautiful MK of them all.

    This may not be great stuff, but it is many worlds better than anything previously done here.

    A great start hopefully to bigger and better things.

    The view from right outside Studio One doesn't look very impressive. The way Tower is partially obscured by the 'La Terrasse' building and the billboard... yeah, not so good.

    And I don't mean the fact that Tower is partially obscured, I mean the particular way in which Tower is partially obscured. Just not flattering to Tower at all.
