Concluding our look behind the scenes of the latest Disney Dream Portraits by Annie Leibovitz, we have a video of Alec Baldwin as he prepares for his ultimate close-up as the Spirit of the Magic Mirror. Unlike the other photo shoots we’ve discussed here on the Disney Parks Blog, Alec had no costume and no set on which to stand. It was all about the face.
His photo was shot in New York City last December at the end of a long day for Alec, who came directly to the studio, somehow full of energy after wrapping on “30 Rock” for the day.
Instead of playing music on this shoot, the actual dialog and music from this scene in “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” was played – and Alec knew every single line the mirror spoke. He recited the entire scene while Annie was shooting him!
In this video, I talk to Alec about what it means to work with Annie Leibovitz, his encyclopedic knowledge of Disney film dialogue and his favorite Disney Parks memory – an early morning trip to Disneyland park after a rainstorm.
Alec was encouraged to show a wide range of emotion during the shoot, and these photos capture that range perfectly.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this peek behind the scenes of Annie’s work for Disney Parks.
Take a look back at our other posts featuring the Disney Dream Portraits by Annie Leibovitz:
Is there anyway to see all the photos from the series together in one place? Are prints available for purchase?
I just love this man He’s so funny,and cute too.
I remember there was no image of a human being in the animation at my childhood.
This Mr Magic Mirror looks mysterious and makes me full of imagination.
Those are really the best days to go to a Disney park: right after it rains! Nobody is there and it’s all clean and great smelling! LOVE it!
