Welcome to Mark Eades Enterprises

I have had two careers in my life – first as a writer, filmmaker, producer and creative consultant as an Imagineer and more in the theme park and themed entertainment business, then a second career as a multi-media journalist.

While I am currently working as a multi-media reporter for the Orange County Register, I am always interested in new theme park and web projects.

On this website, you will also find some of my creative musings about things like raising my five children, dealing with aging parents and my passions like travelling the back roads of America and railroads, particularly steam trains.

You will also find some posts about my past work.

If you want someone who knows how to work with words, photos and videos for the Internet, print, theme parks or more, give me a call.

Okay, this post is in the form of a rant. I work as a writer, and have gotten over the years very knowledgable about copyright law. Recently, a person posted a link on Facebook to a blog on their own blog about Disney. The link led to a post on their blog where they had […]
