EPCOTs 40th Anniversary – A Megamix by Martin

by on Oct.01, 2022, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World, World Showcase

EPCOTs 40th Anniversary – A Megamix by Martin.mp4 from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

15 years ago I created an audio mix celebrating the history of the park, with no idea how popular it would be.

For the 40th anniversary I’ve revisited the idea and spent a lot of time expanding and improving on the original. Better quality. More source. More content. At almost an hour long, this soundtrack is a journey from the past to the present and – I hope – touches on every main show, attraction and genre of entertainment the park has had, some well known and some more obscure.

Like 15 years ago, I purposely didn’t lay the tracks in chronological order. I thought it’d be more fun to have a few surprises and play “guess the show/attraction”. I will post a full track listing afterwards (there’s well in excess of 100 main topics and numerous sub topics)

Disneyland on the move by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Take a parking tram from the parking structure, then take a ride on the monorail with split screen showing the views from both sides at once, a round trip on the Disney Railroad, a spin on Autopia and a cruise aboard the Mark Twain. Then take a quick spin on the Autopia after sunset too!

Disneyland Paris 30th Anniversary with Dream… and Shine Brighter by Martin

by on Aug.06, 2022, under Disneyland Park (Paris), Disneyland Resort Paris, Main Street, U.S.A., Parades, Fireworks, and Shows

To celebrate 30 years of Disneyland Paris, the park runs 4 times a day (heat allowing) this parade / stage show anniversary extravaganza. It features dozens of performers, a parade up Main Street, 4 main stages plus the hub, amazingly energetic dancing and stunning choreography, and a pumping music track that squeezes so many songs into one show. 

Start by looking at the anniversary park decor and the Gardens of Wonder in front of the castle, then take your place for the impressively lavish parade / show. Shot in 4K from 10 different angles I covered as much of the action as possible including all 4 stages. Audio is a very good quality clean live mix from 6 sources to ensure I got each stage audio track when appropriate plus the parade and underliner. I hope you enjoy this great ambitious piece of entertainment.

Next take a peek at the castle fountain show, then as the sun sets take your spot for D-Light, the 30th drone, fountain and projection show that precedes IllumiNations, again shot multi angle with a carefully mixed audio track to eliminate as much crowd noise as possible. 

Happy 30th Disneyland Paris!

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

by on Jan.08, 2022, under Disneyland Park (Paris), Disneyland Resort Paris, Walt Disney Studios Park

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.
