MAKING OF ALADDIN THE MUSICAL

Direction and shoot
3 x 5 minute TV Episodes
Behind The scenes tv series
The Walt Disney Company granted all our wishes when they asked Vamonos to produce a Behind The Scenes TV series all about their musical extravaganza, Aladdin, which would be broadcast on Disney Channel.
The turn-around was fast, so we needed to hit the ground running. Our idea for the series was that our presenter, Sammy Moore, had been granted three wishes by the Genie of the lamp and he uses them to find out exactly how Disney took all the magic of the original animated movie and brought it to London’s West End. We developed the idea into 3 x 5 minute episodes which saw Sammy Moore going behind the scenes to interview the stars and production team behind this theatrical jewel. The shoot schedule was tight - filming all three episodes in two packed days, but luckily, like the Genie himself, the Walt Disney company used their magic to give us access to almost everyone involved in bringing this spell-binding show to life.
The post-production went smoothly with Vamonos handling editing and Graphics in-house. For the final audio mix, we used the brilliant Audio studio, Offset Audio in London.
All in all, it was a magical production, we think the Genie would approve!
