WEDWay to Peoplemover Martins Ultimate Tribute

WEDWay to Peoplemover Martins Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Another huge project…. full of WEDway!

Beginning with the origins of the ride, look at how Tomorrowland developed and how the WEDway route was refined. See the development of the ride system progressed, how it fits into Tomorrowland and how it actually works. Next is a full concept and construction section, followed by a recreation of the original 1975-1985 era ride. Using vintage footage take a multi angle trip around and through the whole ride including Mission to Mars, RCA Space Mountain with Home of Future Living and If You Have Wings, set to the original Jack Wagner spiel. I’m hoping this audio track, whilst certainly not perfect, is one of the clearest and most complete mixes available.

This is followed by a spin on the original Star Jets.

Next up is a full multi angle night ride on the 1985-1994 ORAC-1 WEDway. This includes RCAs RYCA-1 and Delta Dreamflight. Audio again is I hope one of the clearest and most complete version of this spiel, mixed from front and rear car recordings so nothing was missed.

See the changes made in 1994, then take a full daytime multi angle ride on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority TTA Blueline. Again, audio was specifically recorded with a directional microphone from both the front and back cars, and again I hope this is one of the best and most complete recordings.

Following this is a full multi camera, HD spin on the Astro Orbiter.

This is followed by yet more – a HD, multi angle daytime ride of the 2009 Peoplemover with audio again mixed from front and rear cars. I also with this edit attempted to use more unusual camera angles to differ from the many ride throughs already available.

And still there’s more! A daytime off ride look at the Peoplemover as it travels around the various parts of Tomorrowland.

For anyone still watching, next up is an in depth look at the WEDway proposed for Lake Buena Vista, E.P.C.O.T. and Communicore. Then look at and ride the WEDway at Houston Airport and the WEDway derived line in Washington DC.

And finally….. a night time HD multi angle ride around Tomorrowland of today.

Each section is set to contemporary Tomorrowland music of the time. 87 minutes long.

Finally. Another HD edit I’ve always wanted to do. Start with how and why Orlando got the attraction, where it might have gone and why it went where it did. Following a look at how it fitted into Tomorrowland phase two, experience the original 1975 version in multi angle video from a combination of 1980s and early 90s footage, a remade 1975 act IV with source 1985 and clean live 1975 audio.

Next see the changes made through the 80s and early 90s, then look at the major changes made in 1993.

And then, walk into 2015 Tomorrowland for a full look around the attraction in HD. Watch a reconstructed source quality full preshow video, then board the carousel for the full attraction, shot from multiple angles in full HD with a new stereo source quality audio mix.

Shot without a recording ban. 67 minutes long.

Space Mountain 2008

by admin on Jan.28, 2009, under Magic Kingdom, Tomorrowland, Walt Disney World

Space Mountain 2008 from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

In Summer 2008 I spent a lot of time videotaping every guest area of the mountain in preparation for the refurb as a resource document for how it used to be. Walk through the main entrance, down the stairs, and take in the wall map and destination displays. Walk the corridor seeing the wall displays, then see every working display in the zigzag corridor with enhanced low light video (not night vision). Watch the safety video, take in the ambiance of load with views of the ceiling projections, then ride the mountain. Exit unload and see all the postshow details then stroll around the shop and arcade. Take a TTA Metro through the mountain under normal 102 conditions, then again under 101 worklight conditions with multi angle video. Next see all the details of the ride structure from Omega load under 101 workight conditions, ride the mountain with worklights on, then stand in Omega load as the lights go out. All with source/clean live audio and multi angle video.
