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 2007 FullHD – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute

by admin on May.06, 2017, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

Spaceship Earth 2007 FullHD – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

The next in my completely new Futureworld re edits series and the third in the Spaceship Earth trilogy. See the changes made in 2007 and then take a full multi angle, full HD complete ride through. Great low light photography hopefully shows every detail of this amazing ride. The visuals are coupled with hopefully the highest quality, most complete audio mix available in the fan community, with possibly the clearest and most complete animatronic dialogue available to date.

Afterwards take a full tour of Project Tomorrow and a look in the Siemens Lounge, Base 21.

Spaceship Earth 1994 – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute

by admin on Apr.08, 2017, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

Spaceship Earth 1994 – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

The second of my completely new edits and the second in the Spaceship Earth series.
After seeing what changes were made in 1994, take a full multi camera ride of the whole attraction using new and re rendered footage, all of far better quality than my original edit. Virtually every separate video clip has been tweaked and cleaned as much as I can. This is matched by a new high quality audio mix that has far more source audio than previously available.
After unloading, walk into Global Neighborhood for a tour and then take the same tour five years later in the “New” Global Neighborhood.
Finally see the changes made around the attraction for the Millennium.

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.

New Fantasyland WDW – Martins Ultimate Tribute – Part One of Two

by admin on Sep.03, 2016, under Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World

New Fantasyland WDW Martins Ultimate Tribute 1 of 2 from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Another colossal project charting the history of the New Fantasyland project. Starting with 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea closing follow proposals that never happened for the lagoon, and its removal. See what happened in the interim, and then the original NFL plans, both before and after the changes. With before and after pictures see the land grow from the ground from start to finish.

Then take a wall through the construction wall for highlights from the soft opening of Enchanted Tales with Belle. See the layout of this attraction, and also Ariel’s Undersea Adventures : Voyage of the Little Mermaid, before taking your place outside the planters for the first soft opening of the land to guests. Follow the crowds to Mermaid and take a full HD tour of the queue with the first guests to be admitted. Then take a full multi camera HD, mostly source audio ride on the attraction as it appeared on opening day.

After exiting, peek inside Ariel’s Meet and Greet, Bonjour Gifts and Gaston’s Tavern on opening day too and then take a tour of Be Our Guest restaurant too.

The Great Movie Ride – Martins Ultimate Tribute

by admin on Feb.13, 2016, under Disney's Hollywood Studios, Hollywood Boulevard, Walt Disney World

The Great Movie Ride – Martins Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

A colossal project that has ended up better than I could have hoped. Starting with the origins of the pavilion in the mid 1980s see how it developed through concept art and plans in a full concept and construction section. See the layout of the pavilion and how multiple ride vehicles run at the same time, how the pavilion was built, and how the interior sets and props fit in.

Following the grand opening take a look at changes made over the years, including the original preshow shot in full in source like quality and the original and 2014 finale films also in source like quality.

Then take a full tour of the TCM sponsored pavilion, shot in full HD for the highest quality. Look around the exterior, the window displays and the courtyard. Walk the queue taking in all the decor and display details. See highlights of the new preshow – shot on tripod – as Robert Osborne introduces each movie genre, then take your seat for a full 36 minute ride, shot from multiple simultaneous HD angles for every detail, every show scene in full and for complete coverage and with excellent low light footage too. Both hold-up show scenes are also covered in full from multiple simultaneous angles, and finally the new finale movie is shown in full from start to finish in source like quality.

Add to this possibly the most complex multi track stereo audio mix I’ve attempted to date. Audio is almost exclusively source or induction for the best possible quality of every audio detail, effect, score and narration.

A mammoth 83 minutes long. Enjoy!
