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.

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

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.

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

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.

The Hall of Presidents 1971 by Martin

The Hall of Presidents 1971 by Martin from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

I was thinking about an edit of the most recent version of HoP. Then I thought about re editing the Obama video I did some ten years ago.

And so of course I then decided to do all five versions of the show to date, beginning with the original. See the origins of the show, and then experience the whole original show with flicker reduced / eliminated video and a high quality none-live audio track.
