Still More Multiplane

A few more images of the Archives Multiplane Camera.
I took these last week...

Were you able to score any close-up shots of the photos on the wall?

One of the images on the wall (with the many small photos) is pictured in the first posting of last month's "Multiplane Week." This to me was the most important historic document - the other images are largely simplified examples, publicity stills and the first page of the patent which I covered in its entirety. Thus, I did not feel that that warranted wholesale copying off the studio walls...

How were you able to post these images without catching hell from Disney legal?

Well, whit, let's not forget that there are VERY few people left around that actually care about this wonderful invention. Some of the folks within the company that feel as I do about it actually commented to me that they love the attention I give to it, as the Multiplane camera so obviously needs tender loving care. I would think that the Disney lawyers, whom I respect mightily (except for their judgment on Mike Barrier's last book!), would naturally be much more interested in pursuing folks that infringe big-time on their character copyrights, a thing I would never do myself. The materials posted on my blog are instructional, for educational purposes only, to raise the awareness of the wonderful things that happened at the Disney studios in its early glory days!
One could argue the point that I am doing the studio a favor by posting things so they don't have to spend neither the time nor the money to do so themselves...
