CUTTERS HELPS SHOWCASE DISNEY MAGIC

CHICAGO - Cutters (www.cutters.com), with locations in Santa Monica and Chicago, recently completed work on a package of spots for Disney Parks Worldwide that illustrate the magic that takes place at Disney theme parks everyday. Conceived by agency Leo Burnett/Chicago, Dreams mixes everyday footage of children with fantasy imagery that only a child could dream up.

A boy on a fishing trip finds himself amidst a pirates' battle. Children bouncing on a bed fly away like Peter Pan, and a little girl opens her door to find a grand palace ceremony.

Tarsem of @Radical Media directed the project, which was edited by Cutters' Chris Claeys into a :60 and two :30s using an Avid system. Betty Jo Moore assisted on the edit.

LA's Blur provided animation. Tom Sparks of Alteration Services in London and Chris Kreynus and Brian Higgins of Soldesignfx produced visual effects.

The spots feature sound design by Chicago's Another Country. Groove Addicts in Chicago provided the fantasy-themed music track.
