DREAMFINDERS: Circle-Vision Director Jeff Blyth Gets Creative in 360°

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

From the mountains of China, to the plains of Kenya and even Moscow’s Red Square, filmmaker Jeff Blyth has focused his camera on all sorts of wonders of the world. Well…more like cameras… nine to be exact.

Throughout his career, Blythe has directed six circle-vision films for Disney, including Portraits of Canada, Wonders of China, The Timekeeper, and Reflections of China. But that’s just scratching the surface as Jeff chats with Nathan about the technical struggles of shooting a full 360 degree image for Circle Vision, his time in Africa filming the Disney feature “Cheetah” and how you can find his work in both The Shining and Blade Runner.

As a very special treat, Jeff has also worked with Nathan on a director’s commentary track for WDWNT’s 360° presentation of his EPCOT film “Reflections of China.” Be sure to check that out!
