Space Mountain WDW – Martins 1975-2020 Ultimate Tribute (Part 2 of 2) from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

In honour of its 45th anniversary here is a huge tribute to Orlandos Space Mountain.

Trace the origins back to the mid 60s, see versions that weren’t built, and follow their evolution to the final product. Take a detailed look at the design and layout of the final version, see how it was built, and then the grand opening.

Each major version, and smaller changes, are covered in detail with plenty of archive footage and new audio mixes. Eras covered in detail include:

the original 1975 RCA theme including the preshow area, load, the ride and RCAs Home of Future Living.

Updates in 1985 including the preshow area, queue, load and RYCA-1 Dream of a New World

The FedEx era from 1994 including the preshow and queues, load, SMTV, ride, postshow and the video arcade

The 2009 refurb changes, outside and inside

The chicken exit and the 2010 audio additions

And then we come to the present with a look at the exit speedramp removal, the exit diversion around the rear of the mountain, and a full tour of the Mountain as it is today, from outside, the queue, preshows, load, the ride in amazing low light quality with a source audio mix, and the post show and exit as it is minus the speedramp.

I’ve used as much archive material, both audio and visual, as possible to hopefully make this 90 minute long video a true tribute to the original Magic Kingdom thrill ride.

Seaworld Orlando’s Ignite by Martin

Seaworld Orlando’s Ignite by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Cast your mind back to the hot summer months. Seaworlds Electric Ocean Summer promotion cumulated in a surprisingly excellent multimedia show with some of the best fireworks show music I’ve heard for a long time. Fireworks, lasers, fire, lighting, fountains and projections all make up this extravaganza, shot over closing weekend from 3 angles with a source score / live ambiance mix. Also includes Extreme Beam (“the laser man”) and some preshow dancing. Enjoy!

Alien Encounter – Martins 2019 Ultimate Tribute

Alien Encounter – Martins 2019 Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

A brand new edit of the Magic Kingdoms multi sensory epic. Take a look at the planning and changes the building underwent for the attraction, then take a look and listen at version one of the attraction, why it didn’t work, and the changes made. Next walk into the building for both preshows in full, with more higher quality footage than before, then take your seats in the main theatre for the full main show, again with plenty of higher quality new footage and plenty of source side screen footage. Audio is a brand new multi track source mix.

Reflections of Earth a farewell by Martin

Reflections of Earth a farewell by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Well, here it is. Having edited this show numerous times over the last few decades here is my farewell edit. Shot in Full HD over the last five years, I pulled footage from numerous shows in an attempt to show every detail and every visual effect from wide “full show” shots to closeups.

Begin with a unique tour of the lagoon with some facts about the performance. Wait for sunset, follow the chapters of the show, and then experience the entire show one last time, from multiple angles and with source quality earth globe footage superimposed. This is followed by the post show as guests left the park.

Audio is a new source score, clean live pyro mix with subtle and not so subtle details like shell launchers, the inferno barge and burning effects along with the traditional bangs.

Phantom Manor 2019 by Martin

Phantom Manor 2019 by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

My first edit that I shot myself totally in 4K. This has enabled me to produce an edit that’s more or less how the human eye sees it. The attraction reopened earlier this year after a 15 month refurbishment and I was lucky to ride it several times in June. Take a tour of the garden and queue, enter the foyer, and take a complete multi angle tour of the attraction covering every detail. After riding, exit the crypt, take a look around the cemetery and then sample the atmosphere as darkness falls.

Audio is a mix of totally clean live and source, hopefully it is one of the best versions of the complete new soundtrack available to date.

The Hall of Presidents 2017 by Martin

The Hall of Presidents 2017 by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

The last in my five part series. See the changes made to the show in 2017, then take a look around the lobby before taking your seat for the whole show. Shot in full HD and 4K with tripod with various sized lenses to accommodate all projection screen sizes, I hope this is amongst the best quality representations of the current version of the show. Similarly, audio is a brand new ALD / clean live audio mix of the highest quality.

But please, no politics.

The Hall of Presidents 2009 by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Number four in the series, and as we move through time we move into the realm of HD and 4K too. See the changes made in 2009 to the attraction – the biggest in its history to date – then take a look outside, around the lobby, and then the whole Obama version of the show, shot with a combination of HD, 4K, and tripod. Audio is a brand new ALD / clean live mix that I hope is the best available to date.

The Hall of Presidents 2001 by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Part 3 of 5. See the changes made to the show for George W Bush, and the interim hybrid show that played. Then see the whole 2001-2009 version of the show, with flicker reduced or eliminated, multi angle video and a source / ALD / Clean live audio mix.
