The first of my totally re edited Futureworld edits. Over ten years ago I first created my “Ultimate Tributes” and now they’re showing their age. Each one has been re built from scratch with far better quality, more footage and more angles, more art and construction material, far better higher resolution graphics and much higher quality, brand new audio mixes – with more clean live and source audio than before. Each video clip has been enhanced, cleaned as much as I can, and any screen flicker removed as much as possible.
Start back at the origins of EPCOT Center as the park we know began to emerge and the centrepiece attraction and theme developed. See how the building developed, the storyline progressed, and how the ride fits inside. Following a full construction section and dedication highlights take a trip through the 1982 version via art, models, vintage film clips and recreations and with a new audio mix. After riding take a full tour of Futurecom in Communicore West.
Next fast forward to 1986 to see the changes that were made, then walk into the building for a full multi camera ride of the Cronkite version with new footage and a new clean audio mix. See a brand new recreation of 180top, capturing the style and feeling of the complex show scene and take a descent to a brand new Tomorrows Child mix. On exiting the ride see the complete overhead Earthstation Futureworld film projection and take a look at the Worldkey Information System.
These new tributes have been a real labour of love and in production for over a year. Whilst there’s only so much that can be done with recordings of the era I hope you’ll agree they are far better than the previous versions and are some of the best available to the fan community.
Take a look at the changes made from Maelstrom and see the layout of both the ride and the new meet and greet. Then take a full tour of the expanded pavilion, both interior standby and Fastpass lines, and then take a full ride. Shot in full HD from multiple angles with a better than live audio mix.
He’s back to change the world! Walk into Epcot’s Magic Eye theatre for the full 2010 preshow in source quality.
Then take your seat in the main theatre for the full mainshow, recorded several years ago in Disneyland without a recording ban. For best possible quality and to capture the magic for posterity, this was shot:
With a polarizing lens for 2D
And then was colour corrected and processed with several filters to reveal as much detail as possible and to eliminate almost all visible flicker.
With stereo source audio.
Recorded in full HD specifically to showcase the new effects and seven new lasers added in 2014-15. The whole show and post show shot from multiple angles with a source score / clean live pyro audio track.
Finally, an edit I’ve always wanted to do. Starting with a full concepts and construction section, trace the attractions development back to a Futureworld ride through, the changes to a theatre show and early plans. Next see how the show was designed and built, how a technological marvel operates, and the opening dedication.
Next take a full tour both outside and inside, including a full look at all the artwork, furniture and flags on both lobby levels.
Walk into the theatre and experience the full show, shot from multiple angles in full HD for complete coverage. Each rear projected piece of art was either resampled and composited or scanned from original artwork, and then re-animated to match the projected version exactly with no blur, shake or flicker. The audio was remixed in stereo matching original attraction dialogue, sound effects and stereo musical scores for a source quality stereo soundtrack. Includes the full 2007 source quality Golden Dream finale.
After the show, walk around the exterior looking at various details and finally see the changes to the pavilion since 1982, from the minor to the 1993 animatronic replacement with a side by side comparison plus a source quality complete original 1982 Golden Dream and the full 1993 version too.
Shot with a relaxed video ban. 65 minutes long. Enjoy!
A simple 6 camera edit of the October 2014 version of Epcots nighttime extravaganza. Shot in full HD, this video concentrates on the ongoing upgrades to the show made over the last year – especially looking at the new pyro shells used, the upgraded syncrolite and pavilion lighting, and a taste of the new lasers.
The whole Water Engine show that ran from 1982 to 1996 in World of Motions Transcenter. Very rare footage, provided by Widen Your World and shot all on tripod from 3 angles. Since the show was very wide with separate vertical screens, shooting this way has enabled a composite to be assembled presenting the complete show as it was originally seen.
Enjoy this little piece of the parks history as never seen before on the web
Here it is, 46 minutes of the new Epcot attraction. Look at the original versions weak spots, then see how it was redesigned and updated via concepts and construction through to opening. Then take a full HD tour of the attraction from outside, through all three queue lines, through designing your car of the future and then a full, multi angle ride with a clean / inducted audio mix. Finally, view all the post show areas. Enjoy!
October 1 2012 in full. Arriving at Epcot at sunrise, see the lines outside the park and then rope drop. Sample the park atmosphere, see the crowds in World Showplace for the speeches, then see a part of the 3pm rededication “moment” at American Gardens Theatre. Go inside the Odyssey, and then watch the fall 2012 version of Reflections of Earth shot in multi angle HD with a new source music / live pyro mix. Following the regular show is a full multi angle edit of the special 30th anniversary tag, again with source music/ live pyro. Finally, as crowds leave cross an almost empty park for the end of an amazing day. 46 minutes long. Enjoy!
The 2007 updated version of the Circlevision film, shot in full HD from two angles for maximum coverage with an ALD soundtrack.
