Parades and Fireworks
A simple 6 camera edit of the October 2014 version of Epcots nighttime extravaganza. Shot in full HD, this video concentrates on the ongoing upgrades to the show made over the last year – especially looking at the new pyro shells used, the upgraded syncrolite and pavilion lighting, and a taste of the new lasers.
October 1 2012 in full. Arriving at Epcot at sunrise, see the lines outside the park and then rope drop. Sample the park atmosphere, see the crowds in World Showplace for the speeches, then see a part of the 3pm rededication “moment” at American Gardens Theatre. Go inside the Odyssey, and then watch the fall 2012 version of Reflections of Earth shot in multi angle HD with a new source music / live pyro mix. Following the regular show is a full multi angle edit of the special 30th anniversary tag, again with source music/ live pyro. Finally, as crowds leave cross an almost empty park for the end of an amazing day. 46 minutes long. Enjoy!
Okay… the big one. I set out to create what I hoped would be the definitive edit of this show and feel I have achieved it. Shot from almost 2 dozen angles in full HD see every detail of the show, from the barges being set in the afternoon, to sunset on the lagoon, to evening on the Promonade. See the full show in every detail, from lasers and fireworks to fountain details and earth globe closeups; using multiple composites and keys I`ve captured all at once all the show details the human eye sees that a camera normally can`t. Audio wise is a new stereo clean live pyro mix with source score. And there`s more! After the main show is the 2009 Peace on Earth tag, again in HD and again shot from over a dozen angles with a clean live pyro and source score audio mix.
A project that I did to test my edit system and to showcase some of the smaller details of Reflections of Earth. It turned into a long, multi camera extravaganza. The Main show, with multi angle video and a source audio / live pyro mix showing every last detail of the show including laser effects, building lighting, launchers…. everything! It was also my intention to have a closeup of the Earth Globe on screen at all times showing its full video. Picture in Picture, Chromakeying, duel frame…. I went over the top to show every show detail as it happens.
PLUS! As extras,
Forth of July tag, with full multi camera video and a good, clear live audio mix
Holiday Tag, with full multi camera video – again with globe closeup for whole show – and a source audio / live pyro mix
New Years Eve Tag, with multi camera video and a great, clear live audio mix
33 minutes long. Enjoy!
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!
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!
Epcot`s 2nd show for WDW`s 25th Anniversary, running May 1997-September 1999. This show was also known as IllumiNations 98. Multi camera, source music / live pyro mix, and a walk out to the 1997 GE exit display.
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.
Laserphonic Fantasy – sent to me by Steven Lerman. I`ve enhanced the video so the darker parts are watchable, but this is a great single angle video of part of EPCOT Centers history, recorded 1987/8. Source audio mix.
Full history and multi camera parade with full source audio (not park CD version)
