'Behind the Attraction' Director Issues Apology to YouTube Star for Copying Work on 'Tower of Terror' Episode

‘Behind the Attraction’ Director Issues Apology to YouTube Star for Copying Work on ‘Tower of Terror’ Episode. There have been many complaints over the years about Disney, and its many branching studios or companies, using stolen or uncredited work from artists and small-time creators, and rarely do we even see an acknowledgment by the entertainment conglomerate, let alone an apology.

This week YouTube star from The Art of Engineering channel, James St. Onge, shared that Behind the Attraction series director Brian Volk-Weiss reached out to him personally to right the wrong after an oversight led to one of James’ images of Tower of Terror being used in the episode featuring the famed attraction without his permission or credit. St. Onge share that the two had a productive conversation and the famed Disney director issued a formal apology on behalf of Disney, Volk-Weiss’s production studio Nacelle, and Seven Bucks Productions, which is overseen by Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia.

The conversation highlight was shared by James St. Onge via Twitter when fans of his work caught the oversight sharing that he wanted to set the record straight and that the pair had worked out agreeable terms regarding the use of his image, giving St. Onge credit where credit was due.
