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.

by admin on May.05, 2018, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

The Land – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute – Three of Three 2005-2018 from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

The third and final brand new look at The Land pavilion. Start with a look at the changes made in 2005, how the Soarin’ theatres were added and how the ride system works. Following the rededication take a full tour in HD of the pavilion. Board your boat for Living with the Land, with hopefully the best quality and most complete video coverage of the 2005 version of the ride. This is accompanied by hopefully the best, cleanest and most source-like audio soundtrack available, recorded from private boat rides for clean ambiance and source quality mixes of music and narration.

Next up take the trek to Soarin’ for the full original preshow and mainshow, with again hopefully the highest quality audio and video possible.

Join a Behind the Seeds tour for highlights of the walk through the ride areas for an alternate look at the greenhouses.

See the additions made for Soarin’ Around the World, the addition and placement of the third theatre, then the highlights of the new version of the attraction with an emphasis on the ride system.

Finally take an extended view of the rides show scenes from The Garden Grill restaurant.

Ellen’s Energy Adventure – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute

by admin on Dec.02, 2017, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

Ellen's Energy Adventure – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

A colossal and technically challenging project, 12 months in the making. My intention, as always, was to capture every detail of the attraction in the highest audio and video quality possible.

Starting in the mid 1990s, see the proposals for the Energy pavilion refurb. Then take a detailed look at the summer of 1996 Universe of Energy hybrid version and the changes made for Ellen’s Energy Adventure.

Fast forward to 2017 for a shot in 4K, mastered in full HD complete tour of the pavilion. Starting outside for a look at the building this is followed by a walk past the entrance mosaic and into the preshow theatre.

The preshow is presented in full, with a source quality audio track, and each screen was tripod shot separately for complete control over placement and alignment and to allow me to composite and position each projection perfectly for the best quality and to cover all the details.

Next, walk into theatre one and board your travelling theatre for the main show, again each screen was tripod shot separately for the best composite positioning and quality. With a source quality audio track.

And so we then travel into the diorama. I make no apologies for the amount of coverage here, I aimed to cover every detail, every effect, every animatronic. Stunning low light 4K video captured this I hope. With a new clean live audio mix.

Moving into theatre two, hear the full KNRG news report in source quality as the travelling theatre re assembles. Watch the whole theatre two film, again each screen was tripod shot for full quality and flexibility. Each screen was also straightened and re composited to achieve their correct appearance that was impossible to shoot from the ride vehicle. With a source quality audio mix.

Finally, travel back into theatre one for a tripod shot finale, and then take in the architecture details as you exit. See the changes made to the pavilion since 1996, and take a lights on walking tour of the diorama during the last public ride. Ride a full locked off time lapse tripod trip through the diorama, and finish with a look at the pavilion at night.

Given the changes ahead I wanted to capture as much of the pavilion and attraction as possible. I hope I achieved this in this 84 minute edit.

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 – Martin’s Complete Ultimate Tribute

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.

After unloading, walk into Transcenter for a full tour. Highlights include a full multi angle Bird and the Robot show with clean live audio and a full widescreen multi angle, tripod shot The Water Engine show with source audio.

67 minutes long.

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!
