Walt Disney – Makes Money to Make Cartoons

Sunday, 16 January 2011

Walt DisneyWe face lots of celebrities in our life, from sportsmen to politicians, artists to actors. Nevertheless, there are persons who became legendary to spell their names with breathing. And their names are rather of public than personal value. So, when saying Bruce Lee while describing a person, we want to accentuate their physical abilities and merits. When a person is called a Schumacher, it refers to quick and perfect driving ability. When we say Disney, it causes all associations with cartoons on the whole and sometimes some people get surprised to know that a real person lived some time ago named Walter Elias Disney.

Walter Elias Disney was born on December 5, 1901, in Chicago to Elias Disney, of Irish-Canadian descent, and Flora Disney, of German-American descent, in Hermosa community area. In 1906 the Disney family decided to live in a quiet place than in a bigger and developed country and they moved to the farm in Marceline, Missouri and then to Kansas-city. So, Walter spent his childhood in the rural area where he showed his liking for drawing. Elias Disney was a real worker, he worked as a carpenter, and then the construction contractor and he treated the humanitarian activity as something minor and miserable. So, he disdained the new ardor of his son to object it strongly. Moreover, the family did not dispose funds to purchase pencils, paints and papers. Therefore, the first paintings were made by the tar on the wall. When one of his neighbors paid Walter for his drawing of a horse on a piece of paper, Walter came to the idea to, William also developed his worship for trains in Marceline, due to its existence to the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway to ran through town.

In 1918 Walter Disney joined the American Army and was sent to the French Theater of War Activity of the World War I. he was, though, rejected then as underaged and dispatched to serve as a ambulance car driver for the Red Cross. On returning to Kansas-City in 1919, Disney was hired as the creative manager of the commercial studio where he created commercials along with the a cartoonist named Ubbe Iwerks. Walter dreamt about Hollywood and in the soonest time he left for Los-Angeles which seemed to be not so much hospitable as for all newcomers, though. His works were not demanded at studios he applied to. Then he was hired as an extra in one of movies though it was discovered later that the episodes with him were planned to reject. And that triggered the idea for Walter to create his own endeavor. Thus, in 1923 the cartoon studio named The Walt Disney Company appeared which will make its founder one of the most known people in the world to the time he dies, and his brainchild will become one of the chief structures in the world show-business with over a hundred of movies and 26 Oscar Awards.

The story of Walter Disney-businessman is not less captivating as the story of success of Disney-animator, director, producer and a story of a person possessed with cartoons. Walter used to say that he loved Mickey Mouse more than women. Today The Walt Disney Company has the income of many billions USD, but it was initiated when Walter expropriated an old deserted shed from his uncle Robert in Los-Angeles, added his assets of 40 USD, involved his brother Roy to his endeavor, who was just discharged from the military hospital with the remaining 250 USD. The other 500 USD was borrowed. And this money was used to start the way to great cinema. Immediately they faced the reef of show-business when in 1927 the partnering studio stole their first carton character, the smart and successful rabbit Osvald. The Disney brothers kept on moving forward obtaining the governmental order to make educational films. In the soonest time they created the new character, a mouse originally called Mortimer, but later on it was christened Mickey Mouse by Lillian Disney. The success of Mickey Mouse became the financial life belt which helped Disney climb the ship named Success.

The next big project of the studio, the cartoon Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, cost one and a half million USD for the studio to make which is incredible for the budget allocated for cartoons of that time, and three years of work. That project brought fame to Disney and around 200 million USD to the Company. And every other single project of the Company was profitable. However, Disney felt like creating something global and Disney drew sketches of his ideas for an amusement park where he wanted to see his employees spending time with their families. The idea developed into a concept for a larger enterprise become Disneyland and in 1955 in California the first park was opened to cost 17 million USD and that repaid expenses and brough higher higher than expected. After the death of the founder, The Walt Disney Company surrendered positions to some extent while in the middle of 80s the Company was re-structurized and new marketing strategy was introduced. Since then the Company put efforts to actively penetrate the market of cinematography and the sphere of entertainment on the whole.  It resulted in the annual revenue of the Company came to approximately 25 billion USD to he beginning of the new century and the personnel increased in number over 100 thousand people.  Yet, Walt Disney always stated that he never created films to earn money, bur he earned money to create films. However, he and his successors manage to match these and benefit.
