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.

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.

Finally. Another HD edit I’ve always wanted to do. Start with how and why Orlando got the attraction, where it might have gone and why it went where it did. Following a look at how it fitted into Tomorrowland phase two, experience the original 1975 version in multi angle video from a combination of 1980s and early 90s footage, a remade 1975 act IV with source 1985 and clean live 1975 audio.

Next see the changes made through the 80s and early 90s, then look at the major changes made in 1993.

And then, walk into 2015 Tomorrowland for a full look around the attraction in HD. Watch a reconstructed source quality full preshow video, then board the carousel for the full attraction, shot from multiple angles in full HD with a new stereo source quality audio mix.

Shot without a recording ban. 67 minutes long.

Here is my longest single attraction edit to date. Travel back to 1984 and see every major change made to the attraction.

Finally, take a full tour of Project Tomorrow.

SSE 86 180 top re creation

by admin on Mar.22, 2007, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

SSE 86 180top re creation from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Inspired by a very interesting and revealing thread in the WDWMagic.com forums, here is an as-good-as-I-can-make-it re creation of the top of Spaceship Earth from the Cronkite era. Starting in the Cinema and TV lounge scene, take a multi angle video and new audio journey through The Computer (boys room) and the Office, the Hi Tech Communications Center and into 180top itself, with enhanced video, complete with original Earth projection, satellites and astronauts in full, the space station with animatronic robot arm control girl at her window, then the full descent with laser effects and wonderfully stylised early 80`s projections of the Tomorrows Child finale. It doesn`t quite have Industrial Light and Magic standard effects, but this should give a good idea of how the second half of the attraction appeared to guests in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Some footage from jefflangedvd.com with thanks.

World of Motion – Ultimate Tribute

by admin on Apr.22, 2006, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

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

The first of my major re edits. I`ve gone all out for the best quality I can with these “Ultimate” videos. My “Ultimate” though – I`m sure with access to WDIs video and audio archives it could be better still! I`ve re digitised all the media I can; tapes, audio, even pictures at the highest quality I can for these and I hope it shows. Not to mention (hopefully) better editing and the little things like spot fx here and there too. I also have more media to choose from this time around, so I`ve managed to cover even more details. That`s the idea anyhow, here`s the blurb:

Full backstory from the 1978 Transportation pavilion to Motion. Full concept and construction section, maps of the building, ride and Transcenter, then full multi angle ride thru of the attraction with full source music & narration, and enhanced audio fx. Also features improved enhancement of the Center Core finale.

Then take a trip around Transcenter, with the Bird and the Robot show in full.
