Laserphonic Fantasy 2022 edit by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

A little something I’ve wanted to revisit for a while now. With more footage than previously, that I’ve cleaned up a little, here is a multi angle edit of EPCOT Centers 1984 to 1988 lagoon night show. Audio is a source score / live ambiance mix. Additional footage by Mike Patino, RetroWDW, Steve W and Theme Park Vistas – used with my thanks.

WDSP – From Disney MGM Europe to Disney Studios Paris by Martin

by on Mar.05, 2022, under Backlot, Disneyland Resort Paris, Front Lot, Parades, Fireworks, and Shows, Production Courtyard, Toon Studio, Walt Disney Studios Park

WDSP – From Disney MGM Europe to Disney Studios Paris by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

To mark the studios park 20th anniversary here is an edit that goes back to the original plans for Disney MGM Studios Europe park, takes a detailed look at them and why things changed. Take a look at the revised plans, and then go back to 2002 for a full tour of the park as it was when it opened. Plenty of multi angle video and source audio of full experiences of Armageddon, Rock n Roller Coaster and Cinemagique, plus highlights of Motors Action, The Magic of Disney Animation, Studio Production Tour, Behind the Magic tram tour, Disney Cinema Parade and Animagique. There’s also plenty of looking around the park as it was when it opened.

This is also my first video where I’ve chosen to narrate as opposed to using text the history section. Call it a test. As I’ve said this could be the plan moving forward, but still using text for facts and figures – and I won’t be talking over the actual park sections or attractions.

Disneyland Paris – September 2021 by Martin

Disneyland Paris – September 2021 by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

The last for now of my trip videos, something I’d prepared for family and friends before we caught covid and so a video that’s finished and ready to share – given the popularity of my last few trip videos I hope you enjoy this one too. In September 2021 we were lucky to enjoy 3 nights and 4 days in Disneyland Paris in the lovely autumnal weather. Take a look around the nice Hotel Cheyenne and enjoy highlights of both parks when they were relatively quiet before the winter season began.

Disneyland Paris November 2021 trip by Martin

by on Dec.22, 2021, under Disneyland Park (Paris), Disneyland Resort Paris, Walt Disney Studios Park

Disneyland Paris November 2021 trip by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Given the popularity of our DLP 2020 trip video I was considering releasing this too as a Christmas treat. A tour of the resort and both parks with a look at many attractions in the winter of 2021, and six friends meeting after several years for a big birthday celebration.

Over the last week Michelle and I have both been suffering hugely from Covid. To say it’s not nice is beyond an understatement. So I’d like to show this edit not just as a tour of the parks in winter but also as a reminder to enjoy every day you can. Don’t take anything – or anyone – for granted. And please be safe.

The timeframe – and testing – suggests we caught covid back in the U.K. and not at Disneyland Paris. We found DLP to be a safer environment than anywhere back home in the real world.

Disneyland Paris Christmas Season 2021 by Martin

by on Dec.04, 2021, under Disneyland Park (Paris), Disneyland Resort Paris, Walt Disney Studios Park

Disneyland Paris Christmas Season 2021 by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Hot off the press! Only shot this week! Start off in Hotel New York – Art of Marvel to look at the holiday decorations then walk over to Disneyland Parc for a look at the amazing decorations from the entrance to the castle. As night falls cross to Walt Disney Studios for a look at the decorations there, then it’s back to Disneyland for a look at the breathtaking night time decorations.

Then – Mickeys Dazzling Christmas Parade. The all new parade fantastic at night time. First, take a front row view and take in the full parade as it passes along the parade route, shot multi camera with a clean live audio mix. Follow the parade into central plaza (the hub) and see the full four stage show stop performance with Sleeping Beauty Castle as a backdrop. Next follow the parade down Main Street for a highlights showing of the Christmas tree lighting ceremony. All video is still of course multi camera.

Finally leave Town Square and return to Hotel New York via Disney Village to see the holiday decorations at night.

Happy holidays!

Pirates of the Caribbean – Martin’s 2021 Ultimate Tribute – part four Paris

by on Oct.09, 2021, under Adventureland, Disneyland Park (Paris), Disneyland Resort Paris

Pirates of the Caribbean – Martin’s 2021 Ultimate Tribute – part four Paris from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

A huge project that’s been a real labour of love for me. See why the Parisian Pirates is considered by many to be the best and most lavish version of the legacy rides. Go back to the origins of the ride, how it was changed from previous versions, how and why the storyline was altered and how it was designed and laid out and built. Also take a look at all the major changes made since 1992. Then take a full, shot in 4K tour of the attraction from outside, a detailed look at the queue, and on to the lavish load dock. I took care as much as possible to make each shot appear how the ride does. Not too dark, not too bright. Experience a full, huge multi angle edit of the ride covering every detail. Similarly I’m quite proud of the all new source and clean live audio mix I’ve slaved away at. Disembark, browse the store, walk outside, then take a full tour of Captain Jacks restaurant. Jump on the steam train to see the ride from the railroad, then take a look around the expanded attraction area at dusk. This ones been a project of passion for me. I started editing it a year ago and ended up with footage from 15 rides over 2 separate trips. I hope you think it was worth it.

Continuing this new series, see how the third version of the ride was designed and why it isn’t a clone of the Disneyland version but a hybrid of both Anaheim and Orlando. Walk into the attraction and take a full multi angle ride through with a source / clean live audio mix.
