Archive for December, 2007
The highlight of 2007 in the Magic Kingdom was undoubtedly the reopening in September of the new, improved Haunted Mansion. This video looks at the changes and additions, then offers a full, multi camera experience from entrance to exit. Interior video has been enhanced to bring out virtually each detail as the eye would see it without resorting to nightvision. The audio was all recorded live by external stereo directional mic to capture the ambiance of the new sound system, and the narration was also recorded live to capture the new total surround effect. Hu-rry ba-ck!!
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!
