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.

Universe of Energy – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute

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!

Ellens Energy Adventure HD – Ultimate Tribute

Go back to 1996 to see the changes made to Epcots Energy pavilion – both inside and out. See the big problem in the summer of 1996, why the original show returned from the dead, and see all the issues of showing the old show with the new infrastructure including a non-Radok preshow.

Back to present day, have a look around the exterior of the 2009 pavilion, then see the full preshow shot multi angle and flicker free with a clean live / ALD audio mix. Walk into Theatre One, and begin the trip with a full theatre one show shot multi angle and flicker free with a clean stereo live / ALD narration audio mix. Journey through the diorama for complete multi angle / clean live audio coverage, arrive in Theatre Two for the K-NRG radio loop, then see the full Theatre Two film again shot multi angle and flicker free and again with an ALD/clean live audio mix, followed by the Theatre One finale transition and films, again shot Multi angle, flicker free with clean live / ALD audio. Take a look around Theatre One as the lights come on, then exit the pavilion for another look around during both day and night. 56 minutes long.

Universe of Energy – Ultimate Tribute

Travel back before Ellen to the 1982 Energy pavilion. Full concept section from the mid 70`s to 1978 to 1980. Full design construction section with an animated look at the original Diorama effects and ride layout. Then walk into the pavilion for the full Radok preshow with source audio. Load in theatre one and see the entire multiplane theatre one film with a remixed audio track. Full multi angle ride through of the original Diorama with a remixed soundtrack, full theatre two holding audio with multi angle video, and full multi angle theatre two film, again with remixed audio. Then travel onwards for the full spectacular multi angle finale with full source audio. Exit theatre two and cross to Communicore and have a quick tour of Energy Exchange. Regarding the theatre remixed audio tracks; as anyone who has tried to record dialogue in the theatres it`s difficult to not get any of the other 600 guests making noise; using multiple tracks these tracks have virtually no guests noise on them. Also, theatre one dialogue tended to record `muffled` and theatre two had a lot of reverb; I`ve eliminated these issues as much as possible too. 56 minutes long.
