by on Aug.23, 2010, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

The Land 1 of 3 – 1982 – Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

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!

Reflections of Earth HD & Peace on Earth 2009

by on Dec.28, 2009, under Christmas/December Holidays, Epcot, Parades and Fireworks, Special Events, Walt Disney World, World Showcase

ROE POEReflections of Earth HD + POE tag from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Holiday Wishes 2009 HD from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Okay… the big one. I set out to create what I hoped would be the definitive edit of this show and feel I have achieved it. Shot from almost 2 dozen angles in full HD see every detail of the show, from the barges being set in the afternoon, to sunset on the lagoon, to evening on the Promonade. See the full show in every detail, from lasers and fireworks to fountain details and earth globe closeups; using multiple composites and keys I`ve captured all at once all the show details the human eye sees that a camera normally can`t. Audio wise is a new stereo clean live pyro mix with source score. And there`s more! After the main show is the 2009 Peace on Earth tag, again in HD and again shot from over a dozen angles with a clean live pyro and source score audio mix.

A research project that turned into a full video. With the help of Craig Mathieson and John Werner, ex WED employees who helped design the original Imageworks, see the layout of the original upstairs level of the pavilion and also each and every original exhibit. See what changed during the rehab of 1990-1991 and how the layout altered, then see each new exhibit. See the original fountain garden of 1982, what has changed, then as a bonus go into the Magic Eye Theatre; see 4 minutes of Makin’ Memories with source audio – the only known video recording of the preshow, and then see the very rare Dreamfinder 2D introduction to Magic Journeys by Michael Jittlov that was never used and never shown to any guests. And finally, see a remastered copy of the first 12 minutes of Magic Journeys, shot live with source audio.

Reflections of Earth Mega edit

by on Sep.13, 2009, under Epcot, Parades and Fireworks, World Showcase

Reflections of Earth Mega edit from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

A project that I did to test my edit system and to showcase some of the smaller details of Reflections of Earth. It turned into a long, multi camera extravaganza. The Main show, with multi angle video and a source audio / live pyro mix showing every last detail of the show including laser effects, building lighting, launchers…. everything! It was also my intention to have a closeup of the Earth Globe on screen at all times showing its full video. Picture in Picture, Chromakeying, duel frame…. I went over the top to show every show detail as it happens.

PLUS! As extras,
Forth of July tag, with full multi camera video and a good, clear live audio mix
Holiday Tag, with full multi camera video – again with globe closeup for whole show – and a source audio / live pyro mix
New Years Eve Tag, with multi camera video and a great, clear live audio mix

33 minutes long. Enjoy!

Next, see how Centorium became Mouse Gear, what happened to the Epcot Discovery Center, Ice Station Cool, Stargate and Sunrise Terrace.

See what used to be where, and what isn`t there anymore. Next is a look at the Innoventions fountain shows, the fountain and stage history, and a look at key fountain shows; The Rocketeer from 1995 with no plaza canopies, then present day shows of Surprise in the Skies (night), Iron Will (night), Fanfare (theme from DisneySea) (day), Celebrate the Future (day) and Standing in Motion (night with one hell of an electrical storm backdrop!)
