EPCOTs 40th Anniversary – A Megamix by Martin

by on Oct.01, 2022, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World, World Showcase

EPCOTs 40th Anniversary – A Megamix by Martin.mp4 from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

15 years ago I created an audio mix celebrating the history of the park, with no idea how popular it would be.

For the 40th anniversary I’ve revisited the idea and spent a lot of time expanding and improving on the original. Better quality. More source. More content. At almost an hour long, this soundtrack is a journey from the past to the present and – I hope – touches on every main show, attraction and genre of entertainment the park has had, some well known and some more obscure.

Like 15 years ago, I purposely didn’t lay the tracks in chronological order. I thought it’d be more fun to have a few surprises and play “guess the show/attraction”. I will post a full track listing afterwards (there’s well in excess of 100 main topics and numerous sub topics)

Laserphonic Fantasy 2022 edit by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

A little something I’ve wanted to revisit for a while now. With more footage than previously, that I’ve cleaned up a little, here is a multi angle edit of EPCOT Centers 1984 to 1988 lagoon night show. Audio is a source score / live ambiance mix. Additional footage by Mike Patino, RetroWDW, Steve W and Theme Park Vistas – used with my thanks.

Pirates of the Caribbean – Martin’s 2021 Ultimate Tribute part two – Orlando

by on Aug.07, 2021, under Adventureland, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World

Pirates of the Caribbean – Martin’s 2021 Ultimate Tribute part two – Orlando from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Continuing this series, start by taking an in depth look the history of the Orlando version of this attraction, how and why it was built, how it was designed and laid out, how it differs from Anaheim and a look at the major changes made since 1973 including the original treasure room scene in full.

Next take a walk into Adventureland for a complete tour of the attraction including both queues in full and a full multi angle ride through including each scene in full, followed by a tour of Caribbean Plaza.

I was gifted 70 gig of 4K footage mainly shot in 2017 that I could use so long as I released it in 4K, so as well a 1080p version this is my first edit also in 4K. Audio is a source / clean live mix leaning more towards full source.

The footage was also shot in 2017 specifically to capture the original auction scene in full – as it is presented here. I’ve purposely edited this to capture the attraction as it was at that time. Part one (Anaheim) features the new auction scene with Redd in full.

60 minutes long.

Continuing my new series, see why Orlando got Big Thundermountain, how the design was changed from Anaheim, and how it was built. Then see the major changes made over the years and then take a full tour of the interactive queue and a multi angle full ride through. Take in the mountain from various angles, the Riverboat and the railroad, take a ride at night and then see how Tokyo’s version was designed, the changes made for it and also take a ride on that version too. Phew!

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

C33
Colin Chardavoyne
Jeremiah Good
Peter
Steve Frearson
Tim D Ellison
Tony

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.
