It’s a story so unbelievable, it has everyone wondering what really happened. The documentary film “Catfish” bills itself as “a reality thriller that is a shocking product of our times… a riveting story of love, deception and grace within a labyrinth of online intrigue.” But the media and moviegoers alike have questioned the validity and truthfulness of this Sundance Film Festival favorite. The film follows Nev Schulman, a 24-year-old New York City photographer who becomes entangled in an internet relationship with a Michigan family that includes an eight-year-old art prodigy, her beautiful older sister, Megan, and her mother, Angela. Nev’s filmmaker brother, Ariel, and friend Henry Joost document the budding virtual love affair between Nev and Megan and embark on a road trip to discover the shocking truth about the family.

DisneyChannel.com Offers Halloween Costume Augmented Reality Experience

This month, DisneyChannel.com lets users celebrate Halloween early with its “October Takeover” initiative, an augmented reality experience that gives kids the chance to be a virtual character from eight popular Disney Channel series.

A multiplatform digital and programming event, Disney Channel’s October Takeover starts online at www.DisneyChannel.com/Halloween where kids, with their parents’ permission, can digitally recreate themselves in virtual Halloween costumes representing some of their favorite Disney Channel characters such as “Hannah Montana,” Agent P from “Phineas and Ferb” and Sicky Vicky from “Sonny With A Chance,” among others. Trying on a costume is as easy as sitting in front of a webcam or uploading a photo. The Halloween-themed site instantly adds a costume over the image and allows webcam users to create a 15-second video. Participants have the opportunity to have their videos and photos featured on Disney Channel’s site or on-air throughout the month of October.

Disneyland Cast Members Celebrate Disneyland Hotel’s 55th Birthday

The Disneyland Hotel in 1961. Photo courtesy Disneyland Resort.The Disneyland Hotel was built, owned and operated by Walt Disney’s friend Jack Wrather in 1955, opening just about five months after the Disneyland Park. In 1961, the Disneyland Monorail was expanded to allow transportation between the park and the hotel’s guests, making it the first monorail to cross over a public street. It wasn’t until 1988 that the Disneyland Resort acquired the hotel from The Wrather Corporation.
