The Legend of Walter Elias Disney
Walt Disney - the father of the Disney animation studio - is recognized worldwide for his dedication to the film production industry. He has contributed to mankind’s countless innovations in making new types of movies, bringing each animated character to life with rhythmic movements and vivid sound effects.
Although love and happiness are two factors that contribute to the Disney brand, the founder's own childhood did not have those two factors. Walt Disney's childhood was a series of days when his father was often beaten by his father. Walt and his brother suffered many beatings from their father every time they did something wrong.
To escape his father's brutality, Walt began to paint. The colorful pens quickly became familiar items of the young boy. Under Walt's writing, life is no longer harsh and dismal, but instead is filled with love and pleasure - this is the world in which Walt hopes to one day reside.
Walt's daily activities revolved around boxes of crayons until the outbreak of World War I. Walt was 16 years old at the time, joined the Red Cross, and was sent to France to fight. The process of working in the army, many times standing between the boundary of life and death made him love and appreciate life more. Walt still dreams of creating a happy world, but all he can do is draw.
After the war, Walt moved to Kansas City, Missouri, and worked at the advertising animation production company Film Ad Co. Working here gave Walt many valuable lessons. The young man is fascinated by the colorful cartoon characters that can move. From this moment on, Walt wanted to create his own characters.
The first step was to turn his garage into a studio for Walt to unleash his creativity. From the original borrowed equipment, Walt produced animated short films. The first product brings the pride and happiness of the young manufacturer.
However, it was nearly impossible for Walt to convince theater owners to release his films. In the midst of the film market with countless carefully invested products at that time, Walt quickly failed. As a result of the constant loss, Walt had to sell his apartment, live in his office, and sleep on the cold bench. At that time, he had to do everything to survive.
Walt came up with the idea of creating a character based on the image of a mouse that lived with him in his office in Kansas City. "A specific mouse assisted me in cleaning up leftovers while I slept; our connection went beyond that of great friends, and it inspired me to start a film production firm in my name," Walt explained.
Mickey Mouse, a beloved companion of millions of youngsters all around the world, was created right here.
In 1955, Disneyland park was born, quickly becoming a tourist attraction. Dubbed the happiest place in the world, Disneyland is the embodiment of things Walt has dreamed of in the past. Disneyland became a child's dream, giving Walt more than a million dollars in revenue.
Not satisfied with what he has, Walt wanted to expand this wonderful world for all children to enjoy, so he bought more land near Orlando to build the Walt Disney World kingdom. The work is the whole heart of a talented film producer. Unfortunately, Walt has yet to see Walt Disney World complete when he died at the age of 65 from lung cancer.
Throughout his life, Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse were considered deeply influential icons of American culture. Currently, each film produced in the Disney studio is accompanied by the founder's own signature and is welcomed and loved by millions of people around the world.
After the success of the film about Snow White, in turn, other long films such as Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, Bambi ... were born, capturing the hearts of millions of world audiences.
Not only the productions of feature-length films, but Walt also made animated films in the form of documentaries such as "Treasure Island", "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea". Soon after, a series of cartoon characters Mickey Mouse appeared, making Walt's name stronger. Thanks to his contributions to the animation industry, Walt is highly respected and respected by Hollywood film critics.
