Returning the magic!

Sadly, the Disney Company laid off over 28,000 cast members (and counting) at Disneyland and Walt Disney World due to the pandemic. There have been many initiatives setup to help cast members and in this episode we talk about shifting our current Teamboat Willie fundraising efforts to help cast members in need.

We’ll be setting up our own fundraiser with Seconds Harvest Food Bank of Orange County and the info will be available here once that is setup. In the meantime, below are some links that can help cast members:

generative art see yourself as a disney character

 Recently we found out about a website app called Toonify HD that makes you look like a Disney character. The app uses a technology called “deep learning” using a method called Generative Adversarial Networks. Deep learning can be designed to teach computers to do things that come naturally to humans. In this case, however, this app does something called “generative art”.  At its core, generative art is art created using computer code.

For approximately $4 US dollars, you can  get 10 image credits to convert using the Toonify HD algorithm. Here are some examples of the what it does:
