EPCOTs 25th Anniversary Part One from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Experience October 1st, 2007 in all its glory again. Begin the day outside the park, then enter the turnstyles at 8am. Join the crowds heading for the fountain, and soak up the atmosphere before rope drop. As the park opens, rush to the stage, watch the crowds build, and enjoy the entire re-dedication ceremony, all in multi angle video and remastered audio. Then take a tour of the 25th exhibition, with details of some of the more unusual art on display and see what the Conversation with Marty Sklar had to offer. As the skies darken, take refuge from the deluge and end up in Odyssey for the C25 dessert buffet. 55 minutes long!

EPCOTs 25th Part Two from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Dodge the downpour and take the walk to Italy to watch IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth in all its multi camera, source score/live pyro splender. This is a new edit of the show I`ve made from Octobers footage. Then watch the once-only 25th tag again with multi camera angles and source score/live pyro. See the 25th laser projection on Spaceship Earth in full, and watch Jim McPhee pop by to say thanks to the fans. Then take a walk around Showcase south after the park has closed listening to the live vintage music playing. Back to Italy for the show hardware float-past followed by the Inferno barge burnoff, then leave the park in the early hours of October 2nd with no one else inside! This video runs for 32 Minutes. Thanks to C33 and Horizons for the RoE tag audio recordings. Enjoy!

Japan at EPCOT – Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Take a look at concepts and construction of the Japan Pavilion. Take a tour through the gardens and the pavilion, and see the story with concept art of the never built Meet the World Carousel Theater show. Then see the entire identical show from Tokyo Disneyland in a multi angle video, but with the original English soundtrack. Finally, see other never built concepts for the pavilion.

Canada – Ultimate Tribute v2

by on Jun.14, 2007, under Epcot, Walt Disney World, World Showcase

Canada – Ultimate Tribute v2 from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

A re edit of my previous video, this features an expanded concept and construction section and a quick look at the shops, restaurants and entertainment of the pavilion over the years. The main feature is a complete re edit of O’Canada! ALD narration, and an enhanced live show recording – recorded in an EMPTY theatre. Absolutely no other guest noise! Apart from a slight echo on the quiet instrumentals it could be source!

SSE 86 180 top re creation

by on Mar.22, 2007, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

SSE 86 180top re creation from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Inspired by a very interesting and revealing thread in the WDWMagic.com forums, here is an as-good-as-I-can-make-it re creation of the top of Spaceship Earth from the Cronkite era. Starting in the Cinema and TV lounge scene, take a multi angle video and new audio journey through The Computer (boys room) and the Office, the Hi Tech Communications Center and into 180top itself, with enhanced video, complete with original Earth projection, satellites and astronauts in full, the space station with animatronic robot arm control girl at her window, then the full descent with laser effects and wonderfully stylised early 80`s projections of the Tomorrows Child finale. It doesn`t quite have Industrial Light and Magic standard effects, but this should give a good idea of how the second half of the attraction appeared to guests in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Some footage from jefflangedvd.com with thanks.

IllumiNations – The original – Ultimate Tribute

by on Dec.19, 2006, under Epcot, Parades and Fireworks, Walt Disney World, World Showcase

IllumiNations – The original – Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Go back to 1988 and see GEs first night time EPCOT Center show. A quick `backstage` section shows the hardware and how it was used, then enjoy the full show with high quality mutli angle video (5 angles this time!) and full source audio.

The video has a pyro fx overlay mix for the audio too, since that seems more popular than pure music.

Enjoy!

The Living Seas – Ultimate Tribute

by on Aug.05, 2006, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

The Living Seas – Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

The Living Seas – a tribute 2005. Lots of concepts, 1978 and 1980 WED promos, construction, full walkthru looking at the queue and holding areas, full `The Seas` preshow film, Hydrolators, Sea Cabs and full tour of Seabase Alpha in 1990, plus a look at recent changes.

Changes:
Enjoy the ALD audio in The Seas preshow, and I also added a few seconds of concepts – a curious hybrid design of The Seas and The Living Seas.

Universe of Energy – Ultimate Tribute

by on May.31, 2006, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

Universe of Energy – Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Travel back before Ellen to the 1982 Energy pavilion. Full concept section from the mid 70`s to 1978 to 1980. Full design construction section with an animated look at the original Diorama effects and ride layout. Then walk into the pavilion for the full Radok preshow with source audio. Load in theatre one and see the entire multiplane theatre one film with a remixed audio track. Full multi angle ride through of the original Diorama with a remixed soundtrack, full theatre two holding audio with multi angle video, and full multi angle theatre two film, again with remixed audio. Then travel onwards for the full spectacular multi angle finale with full source audio. Exit theatre two and cross to Communicore and have a quick tour of Energy Exchange. Regarding the theatre remixed audio tracks; as anyone who has tried to record dialogue in the theatres it`s difficult to not get any of the other 600 guests making noise; using multiple tracks these tracks have virtually no guests noise on them. Also, theatre one dialogue tended to record `muffled` and theatre two had a lot of reverb; I`ve eliminated these issues as much as possible too. 56 minutes long.
