Wonders of Life – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

The last of my completely new Futureworld re edits (but not the last from EPCOT Center) sees a huge, 100 minute long detailed look at the 1989 pavilion.

Start with a look at early designs and proposals for the Health and Life pavilion, how the final design was arrived at, laid out and then built.

Walk into the pavilion and take a full multi angle tour. As well as vintage 80s and 90s clips, much of this footage was shot early and late in the day of the pavilions last day of operation to show unobscured views of the interior. This is a detailed tour of the inside, walking pass Pure and Simple, then walk through the exhibits of Sensory Fun House and arrive at…

Cranium Command
Walk the queue and see the holding area displays. See the full preshow in high quality, steadily shot and stabilised in an empty theatre with screen flicker greatly reduced and an ALD audio track.
Walk into the main theatre, take your seat for a full, multi camera complete mainshow edit, partly tripod shot, again with all projection flicker greatly reduced and with a new stereo source quality audio mix.
Leave the Cranium theatre and cross over to…

The Making of Me
Take your place in the queue for the Birth Theatre, then take your seat for the full movie presentation. This unobscured video was tripod shot, keystone corrected and flicker eliminated. Audio is a clean live and ALD mix.
Walk through Coaches Corner, MET Life Styles and then head for….

Body Wars
Walk the whole main queue with all three complete preshows in source quality. Proceed to the waiting area and watch the whole load video, again in source quality. Board body probe 229 for the full, unobscured main ride. Video was steadily shot with a bonus of the ride motion base disabled, enhanced and is flicker free. The side screen was similarly shot and is overlaid as needed. Audio is a new stereo source quality track.
Exit the ride into Frontiers of Medicine and then enjoy…

Goofy About Health.
The whole show presented as a multi screen edit with each screen shot separately and a clean, enhanced live stereo audio track.
Take a look at Anacomical Players, take a last look around and then see the major changes made over the years. Phew!

Next we move to World Showcase.

The Living Seas – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute

by admin on Jul.07, 2018, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

The Living Seas – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

The next in my series of completely new edits. Starting with an in-depth look at the pavilions history, and the original 1978 “The Seas” pavilion, see how a “hybrid” version developed and would have looked before coming to the 1986 version for an in depth look at its design, layout and construction.

Next, take a look outside and then walk in for a look at the queue and exhibits before reaching the holding rotunda for a faithful and accurate high quality recreation of the original United Technologies preshow one. Proceed into one of the preshow theatres for a new, high quality edit of the original “The Sea” preshow with ALD audio.

Leaving the preshow, browse the hydrolator hall before your descent, again with higher quality multi angle video and source / clean audio.

Arriving at the sea bed, again take a look around before boarding a Seacab for a multi angle video, higher quality audio ride with Commander Fulton to Seabase Alpha. Take a complete tour of the seabase, the divers lockout chamber, all six exhibit modules, J.A.S.O.N. and the viewing area. See both versions of The Coral Reef restaurant and take an authorised, accompanied tour of the United Technologies VIP lounge.

Finally, see the changes made to the pavilion over the years. 72 minutes long.

Journey into Imagination – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute

by admin on Sep.09, 2017, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

Journey Into Imagination – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

The next of my completely re edited EPCOT Center videos, the first in my Imagination trilogy, and another massive project.

Begin with the origins of the pavilion, from the EPCOT Arts Pavilion and Discovery Bay to the duel ride floor Imagination proposal. See how the pavilion developed, how the pavilion and ride were laid out and how the ride system worked, and how it all came together for opening – or not.

Next walk into the original Pavilion for a detailed look at the open atrium lobby complete with wall mural coverage. Board your ride vehicle and take a full, multi camera journey through the original attraction. Enhanced and cleaned up multiple angles show every detail. Each projection has had flicker minimised or eliminated. See each show scene in full, complete with a brand new stereo audio mix featuring more high quality and source audio than previously available.

After unload take the stars or the elevator up to the Imageworks for a full tour of the original interactive playground of the future. Then take the escalator down to the Magic Eye Theatre for a look at Makin’ Memories, Dreamfinders Chase as source quality, and then enter the main theatre for Magic Journeys in full – shot on a tripod with a polarising filter to minimise the duel image effect and with screen flicker greatly reduced. With a stereo source soundtrack.

After the movie ends, take a look around the fountain garden and camera store. Finally, see what changes were made to the pavilion, including the early 90s overhaul of The Imageworks and take a tour of version two of the upper floor.

Another huge labour of love. 88 minutes long.

World of Motion – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Continuing my brand new re edits of EPCOT Center, see the history and origins of the Transportation Pavilion. See it develop in the GM pavilion, how it was designed and see how the pavilion, ride and exhibits were laid out.

Next is a full construction section, charting its progress from ground break to opening.

And then take a full multi camera, detailed full ride from walk in to exit. All material has been enhanced where possible, all projection flicker reduced or eliminated. This is accompanied by a new source and clean live stereo audio mix.

Horizons – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute

by admin on Jul.01, 2017, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

Horizons – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

The fifth in my brand new Futureworld re-edits, and a real labour of love.

Follow the development of the pavilion from a GE fair in Futureworld west to the pavilion it eventually became in Futureworld East. See how the story evolved, the ride developed, how the track and show scenes were designed and laid out and then watch as the pavilion went from nothing to dedication in 19 months.

And then, take the trip you’ve always dreamed of in a 40 minute, multi camera extravaganza. As much detail has been covered as possible, every show scene, every projection. Each projection screen has been flicker reduced or eliminated, each shot of the ride enhanced where possible. Walk into the pavilion and begin your journey in the Futureport to see the trio of destinations available aboard Horizons One. Follow the queue and then take you seat for a continuously moving omnimover ride from the past and into the future. Highlights include complete source quality loops of all 3 Movies of Yesteryear screens, the full Omnimax loop, and all 3 ending choices in full and of high quality.

Audio wise, each animatronic conversation is clean live but is in full and with hopefully the clearest quality audio available to date. Each spiel was edited together from dozens of recordings for completeness and the best available quality. All sound effects are clean and enhanced, and the musical score and in-car narration is of course of source quality.

Many call Horizons the best dark ride ever.

I hope I’ve done it justice.

71 minutes long.

Universe of Energy – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute

by admin on Jun.03, 2017, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

Universe of Energy – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Continuing my series of my original Futureworld re edits, here is the complete 1982 Exxon pavilion, re edited and remastered for hopefully the best video and audio quality and most complete coverage available. Presented in 720p to maintain the high resolution of the graphics and plans and the quality of the original footage, and to allow the widescreen format to be fully utilised.

Start with the original designs for a solar energy pavilion, and see how the designs evolved through the late 1970s.

With designs finalised, see how the pavilion was laid out, how the ride system and the diorama effects worked and more. Watch the huge building grow from the swamps and finally see highlights of the dedication ceremony.

Next take a full multi angle ride of the original presentation. Walk into the pavilion and start with the full Radok preshow, with flicker-reduced or eliminated multi angle video rendered in 16:9 and full source audio.

Then walk into theatre one and take your seat for the multiplane projection introduction, again with all projection flicker eliminated and with a new clean live audio mix that I hope is the best available.

Things get darker as we move into the diorama, with all its original effects working. Again this is a multi angle edit with authentic clean live stereo mix.

Moving into theatre two is the whole second main show, deflickered and again with a new high quality clean audio mix. Here I’ve used the whole 16:9 tv screen to simultaneously show more than one 4:3 video clip of the 3 different screens at the same time to cover details that may otherwise be missed.

Onwards into theatre one again for the finale, the whole multiscreen reflected ending is covered in multi angle widescreen with the 4th apex screen shown in full as a picture in picture. Again I hope this is the best available finale quality-wise in the fan community. With source audio.

And then, exit the pavilion and cross to Energy Exchange in Communicore East for a full tour.

A mammoth edit!

Spaceship Earth 1982 & 86 – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute

by admin on Mar.04, 2017, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

Spaceship Earth 1982 & 86 – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

The first of my totally re edited Futureworld edits. Over ten years ago I first created my “Ultimate Tributes” and now they’re showing their age. Each one has been re built from scratch with far better quality, more footage and more angles, more art and construction material, far better higher resolution graphics and much higher quality, brand new audio mixes – with more clean live and source audio than before. Each video clip has been enhanced, cleaned as much as I can, and any screen flicker removed as much as possible.

Start back at the origins of EPCOT Center as the park we know began to emerge and the centrepiece attraction and theme developed. See how the building developed, the storyline progressed, and how the ride fits inside. Following a full construction section and dedication highlights take a trip through the 1982 version via art, models, vintage film clips and recreations and with a new audio mix. After riding take a full tour of Futurecom in Communicore West.

Next fast forward to 1986 to see the changes that were made, then walk into the building for a full multi camera ride of the Cronkite version with new footage and a new clean audio mix. See a brand new recreation of 180top, capturing the style and feeling of the complex show scene and take a descent to a brand new Tomorrows Child mix. On exiting the ride see the complete overhead Earthstation Futureworld film projection and take a look at the Worldkey Information System.

These new tributes have been a real labour of love and in production for over a year. Whilst there’s only so much that can be done with recordings of the era I hope you’ll agree they are far better than the previous versions and are some of the best available to the fan community.
