Walt Disney's Contribution to Society
Walt Disney's Early Life
Walt Disney was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1901. As a young child, he had an early interest in art and would often sell drawings to make extra money. He pursued his dream and studied art and photography at Mckinley High School. This passion for cartoon drawing and animations would soon spark a new revolution in the early works of media
The Beginning of his Career
In 1918, when Walt was only 16 years of age, he began his career in commercial art. Although his first attempts were not successful, he persevered and carried his dreams in his suitcase to Hollywood.
Walt Disney's first success was the series called "Alice Comedies." This made him a well known man throughout Hollywood, which benefited his business immensely. On December 21, 1937, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the first full-length animated musical feature, premiered at a theater in Los Angeles. This famous film was a hit, and it is still considered one of the greatest and most influential monuments of the motion picture industry. In the next few years, Walt Disney Studios created other distinguished animated classics such as Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, and Bambi, most of which are still known and watched today.
Disney's Goals and Dreams
Walt Disney also had another dream of his own. He wanted to create a safe, clean, and fun theme park where all his animations came to life. This dream was fulfilled in 1955, and the famous parks still stand today.
Walt Disney's Acomplishments in TV
Besides being a world known cartoon designer and artist, Walt also became huge in the television industry as his Disney Company began television production in 1954. His company was among the first companies to present full-color programming with his Wonderful World of Color Program in 1961.
Media Used to Spread the Cause
Disney's Impact On Our Modern society
Walt Disney was not just an amazing artist. He also shaped the way many of us think today. For example, most of us know all of his famous cartoon shows like Mickey Mouse, the princess movies, and many others.
The Little Mermaid:
Here we learn the difference between right and wrong.
Lion King: Here, we learn many moral values like "evil never wins,".
Aladdin: We learn that love can go above all socia classes.
Pinocchio: We learn life lessons, like to not lie, or to be good.
Have you ever watched the movie The Little Mermaid? Aladdin? Pinocchio? Or the Lion King? These movies are more influential to us than what we think. For example, most of these movies, that we have been watching since we were young, have taught us the difference between good and evil, it has taught us the hardships and benefits of love, and taught us hundreds of lessons.
Many of Disney's productions have changed the way we all think. When we were little, we were entertained with stories of faries and princesses. These stories taught us from the early age many universal themes like love, good and evil, and the difference of social classes, which were combined many times in just one known film.
Disney has affected since us the early age
The media used to spread Walt Disney's creativity was first sparked in drawing and designing cartoons. However, as these drawing became more popular, they were eventually made into full-length color cartoons, which are still played in television.
Today, Disney Channel has become extremely popular. Other companies, like Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network have been accused of stealing Disney cartoon ideas, but the cartoons have still been proved as originals.
Walt Disney's Legacy
Walt Disney had a very famous saying," All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them, and "If you can dream it, you can do it." This showed that this man was hardworking, imaginative and creative, he was honest, inspirational and was motivated by the world around him, which set and example to be followed by other companies. If in the following 20 years Disney is not as popular, it is guaranteed that other companies will follow in his footsteps and create creative stories with meaning and purpose, that captives the attention of both children and adults. Walt Disney has had an immense impact on the way our society thinks, and will always be an idol.
