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.
The complete film, from walk in to walk out, shot in full HD from 2 angles for full coverage of all 5 screens and the new digital projection system now in use for solid, sharp images. This system does produce some minimal flicker in parts on recordings. With a source audio track.
Now the attraction is closed for its makeover, go back to the mid 90s for an expanded concept, design and construction story and why the attraction opened 18 months later than planned.
Then, mastered in full HD, take a trip around the outside of the pavilion followed by full multi angle coverage of both the standby and Fastpass line exhibits.
Next, see the full preshow with split screen main and side monitor with an ALD audio track.
Follow the line through load, then take a full multi angle video, clean live and induction audio ride with a picture in picture LCD monitor.
This is followed by full postshow coverage, a look at changes to the pavilion and ride since 1998, and a tour and ride at night. 60 minutes long.
A high definition edit of Epcots China Circlevison show, shot from 2 angles to cover the whole show with a source quality score and clean live narration.
Finally, the complete 1982 EPCOT Center Imagination 3D movie, shot by Mike Lee at Widen Your World on a tripod with a polarising lens. With his permission, I joined both parts into one file, synced up the full stereo source audio track and removed 75-80% of the screen flicker. To preserve quality this is an MPEG file, not divx.
In this final part of The Land Ultimate trilogy, go back to 2005 to see the pavilion being totally refurbished. See the layout and decor changes, and how the Soarin’ buildings were added and where. See Soarin’ being constructed, its origins and how it works, then after its dedication take a look around the pavilion. This is followed by a full multi angle video of the current version of Living with the Land. Next, walk the line for Soarin’, watch the preshow and take a full ride with flicker-free high quality video (freely available) and source audio, followed by a walk of the exit line. 48 minutes long. Enjoy!
The second of my re edited trilogy, looking at the changes both to the pavilion and the attractions during the first major Futureworld overhaul. See the changes made to the interior, both in layout and decor. Then take a full, multi angle video and live/Induction audio ride of the 1993 version of Living with the Land. This is followed by a walk into the holding area for Food Rocks, and a new high quality and in-full multi angle, source quality audio edit of the show. Next walk into the Harvest Theatre for a look at the preshow to The Circle of Life, followed by the presentation in full with high quality video and an ALD audio track. Presented in full DV quality, 4:3. Running time 54:30
Here we go, the first of a brand new history trilogy. I thought it was time I covered this pavilion properly and group all the attractions in the correct time period.
Travel back, way back, to 1975 to see the origins of a pavilion based on the Land in the EPCOT Theme Center. Move through 1978’s Ecology pavilion and see how and why the direction and design changed, including early designs for the 1982 pavilion. This is followed by a full construction section of the pavilion itself and the interior attractions, through to October 1982. Next, is a full 1982 layout tour of the pavilion and the various attractions within.
Take a tour of the original Kraft pavilion, shot in the late 80`s and early 90`s, the food court and the farmers market. This is followed by a full multi angle video ride on Listen to the Land with a good live audio mix. Next, line up in the holding area for The Kitchen Kabaret, with the whole show presented as a new high quality multi camera edit with full source audio. Once the show has ended, enter The Harvest Theatre and watch in full Symbiosis, with a clean live audio mix.
65 minutes long, with parts 2 and 3 to follow soon. Enjoy!
