Flying / Gravity Defying Attraction Visitors Picture Backdrop

Vacation pictures that appear to show the family members flying like a superhero over the area they're visiting.

A large mural of the attraction, an amusement park, city skyline, national park etc is painted on a wall as a backdrop for visitors to take pictures in front of.

The picture is rotated 45 to 90 degrees counter clockwise so the people standing in front of it can be made to appear to be flying over the area when the camera is similarly rotated to match the angle of the background picture. When the picture is viewed back at horizontal, the people that had their pictures taken in front of the backdrop while standing vertically now appear horizontal as well giving the impression that they're defying gravity.

They can strike a flying superhero pose with their arms up in the air, which when rotated, would appear in the picture to be their arms in front of them while they soar over the area being visited.

Other illusion pictures could be created by having backgrounds painted on the ground that people would lie on while pictures were taken from an overhead. (see link) The pictures would again be of the site being visited, and the people could appear to be soaring over each other, holding each other up in the air in the palm of their hand etc. They would be encouraged to be creative and I think this would be a great attraction that would cost almost nothing to create.

The background art would of course include promotional captions of the attraction on the backdrop. "Flying High Over Grand Canyon!" or "Soaring Over Waikiki" etc.

The common practice of doing stuff like this... https://www.pintere.../16325617373192774/
only on the ground or at an angle (or both) to allow these sorts of illusions to be created as postcards to help sell the attraction. [doctorremulac3, Dec 27 2020]

       Disneyland/Disneyworld offer "green screen" versions of this as one of the attractions.

       Im not seeing the thing where it looks like they're flying when you rotate the picture.   

       I'm seeing lots of Disney green screen stuff but it's just a bunch of castles and mice.

       So have cameras. People are well baked and widely known to exist as well but thanks for the insight.   

       If only I had specified these are backdrops that are turned at an angle so the vertically standing people could appear to be flying when the picture is taken at a matching angle to the backdrop then viewed turned 90 degrees clockwise.   

       Hey, there's an idea!
