Illuminations 25 A and B by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Following on from last months illumiNations, here are both versions of Walt Disney Worlds 25th anniversary show. Each show features multi angle video and a source score / live pyro audio mix. Video is of its vintage but I’ve cleaned it up somewhat.

IllumiNations 1988-1996 by Martin

by on Jan.09, 2021, under Epcot, Parades and Fireworks, Walt Disney World, World Showcase

IllumiNations 1988-1996 by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

A re edit I’ve wanted to do for a while. Go back to 1982 and follow the history of Carnaval de Lumiere then New World Fantasy, then take a detailed look at Laserphonic Fantasy. This is followed by a look at the changes made in 1988, and then the whole original IllumiNations show, shot from multiple angles with a source score / live ambiance audio mix. Video is of its vintage, but I’ve done some cleaning up and enhancements to improve the quality.

Rise of the Resistance – Martins Ultimate Tribute

by on Dec.05, 2020, under Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disneyland, Disneyland Resort, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, Walt Disney World

Rise of the Resistance – Martins Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

A huge edit, in the making for nearly a year, of one of Disney’s most advanced attractions. See the origins of Star Wars expansion in Orlando, how the land developed, and the development of the attraction.  Follow the ride from entrance to exit in an animated hi resolution and highly detailed plan, how it works, and how it was built.

Next walk into Orlando’s  Batuu and walk an empty standby line before a multi angle preshow one, then board your transport for a multi angle, multi picture preshow two ride. Take in the destroyers hanger and interior, experience preshow three and then board your ride vehicle for a multi angle, full ride offering viewpoints from both vehicles. Exit the attraction and see the area – and ride changes – at night and then compare both ride vehicles viewpoints in a synchronised split screen ride through. All video was shot in HD or 4K and audio is a huge live / clean / source quality mix.

Given the events of 2020, this edit would not have been possible without the help and generosity of the following to whom I am extremely grateful:

Attractions Magazine
Darth Vader 92 Productions
Jeff Lange DVD / Mousesteps
WDWMagic
WDWNT

49 minutes long. Enjoy!

Spaceship Earth 1982 Martins 2020 Edit

by on Sep.05, 2020, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

For the attractions 38th birthday, here is an updated version of the original version of Spaceship Earth. With new footage, for the first time a complete representation of how the attraction looked for its first four years is now possible. Quality is what you would expect from the mid 1980s and early 90s, and a lot of footage is from the 1986 version for clarity, but everything is true to how the ride looked in 1982. Similarly, for the first time using a combination of recordings, the complete Vic Perrin (yes, it was Perrin) narration is now possible to hear. Previous recordings have had words, sentences and complete sections missing or inaudible but this live mix includes the complete original soundtrack. Again, quality is not perfect but the entire original narration is now here.

Space Mountain WDW – Martins 1975-2020 Ultimate Tribute (in two parts)

by on Jan.04, 2020, under Magic Kingdom, Tomorrowland, Walt Disney World

Space Mountain WDW – Martins 1975-2020 Ultimate Tribute (Part 1 of 2) from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Space Mountain WDW – Martins 1975-2020 Ultimate Tribute (Part 2 of 2) from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

In honour of its 45th anniversary here is a huge tribute to Orlandos Space Mountain.

Trace the origins back to the mid 60s, see versions that weren’t built, and follow their evolution to the final product. Take a detailed look at the design and layout of the final version, see how it was built, and then the grand opening.

Each major version, and smaller changes, are covered in detail with plenty of archive footage and new audio mixes. Eras covered in detail include:

the original 1975 RCA theme including the preshow area, load, the ride and RCAs Home of Future Living.

Updates in 1985 including the preshow area, queue, load and RYCA-1 Dream of a New World

The FedEx era from 1994 including the preshow and queues, load, SMTV, ride, postshow and the video arcade

The 2009 refurb changes, outside and inside

The chicken exit and the 2010 audio additions

And then we come to the present with a look at the exit speedramp removal, the exit diversion around the rear of the mountain, and a full tour of the Mountain as it is today, from outside, the queue, preshows, load, the ride in amazing low light quality with a source audio mix, and the post show and exit as it is minus the speedramp.

I’ve used as much archive material, both audio and visual, as possible to hopefully make this 90 minute long video a true tribute to the original Magic Kingdom thrill ride.

Alien Encounter – Martins 2019 Ultimate Tribute

by on Nov.02, 2019, under Magic Kingdom, Tomorrowland, Walt Disney World

Alien Encounter – Martins 2019 Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

A brand new edit of the Magic Kingdoms multi sensory epic. Take a look at the planning and changes the building underwent for the attraction, then take a look and listen at version one of the attraction, why it didn’t work, and the changes made. Next walk into the building for both preshows in full, with more higher quality footage than before, then take your seats in the main theatre for the full main show, again with plenty of higher quality new footage and plenty of source side screen footage. Audio is a brand new multi track source mix.

Reflections of Earth a farewell by Martin

by on Oct.05, 2019, under Epcot, Parades and Fireworks, Walt Disney World, World Showcase

Reflections of Earth a farewell by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Well, here it is. Having edited this show numerous times over the last few decades here is my farewell edit. Shot in Full HD over the last five years, I pulled footage from numerous shows in an attempt to show every detail and every visual effect from wide “full show” shots to closeups.

Begin with a unique tour of the lagoon with some facts about the performance. Wait for sunset, follow the chapters of the show, and then experience the entire show one last time, from multiple angles and with source quality earth globe footage superimposed. This is followed by the post show as guests left the park.

Audio is a new source score, clean live pyro mix with subtle and not so subtle details like shell launchers, the inferno barge and burning effects along with the traditional bangs.

The Hall of Presidents 2017 by Martin

by on Aug.03, 2019, under Liberty Square, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World

The Hall of Presidents 2017 by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

The last in my five part series. See the changes made to the show in 2017, then take a look around the lobby before taking your seat for the whole show. Shot in full HD and 4K with tripod with various sized lenses to accommodate all projection screen sizes, I hope this is amongst the best quality representations of the current version of the show. Similarly, audio is a brand new ALD / clean live audio mix of the highest quality.

But please, no politics.

The Hall of Presidents 2009 by Martin

by on Jul.06, 2019, under Liberty Square, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World

The Hall of Presidents 2009 by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Number four in the series, and as we move through time we move into the realm of HD and 4K too. See the changes made in 2009 to the attraction – the biggest in its history to date – then take a look outside, around the lobby, and then the whole Obama version of the show, shot with a combination of HD, 4K, and tripod. Audio is a brand new ALD / clean live mix that I hope is the best available to date.
