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.

WEDWay to Peoplemover Martins Ultimate Tribute

by admin on Aug.06, 2016, under Magic Kingdom, Tomorrowland, Walt Disney World

WEDWay to Peoplemover Martins Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Another huge project…. full of WEDway!

Beginning with the origins of the ride, look at how Tomorrowland developed and how the WEDway route was refined. See the development of the ride system progressed, how it fits into Tomorrowland and how it actually works. Next is a full concept and construction section, followed by a recreation of the original 1975-1985 era ride. Using vintage footage take a multi angle trip around and through the whole ride including Mission to Mars, RCA Space Mountain with Home of Future Living and If You Have Wings, set to the original Jack Wagner spiel. I’m hoping this audio track, whilst certainly not perfect, is one of the clearest and most complete mixes available.

This is followed by a spin on the original Star Jets.

Next up is a full multi angle night ride on the 1985-1994 ORAC-1 WEDway. This includes RCAs RYCA-1 and Delta Dreamflight. Audio again is I hope one of the clearest and most complete version of this spiel, mixed from front and rear car recordings so nothing was missed.

See the changes made in 1994, then take a full daytime multi angle ride on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority TTA Blueline. Again, audio was specifically recorded with a directional microphone from both the front and back cars, and again I hope this is one of the best and most complete recordings.

Following this is a full multi camera, HD spin on the Astro Orbiter.

This is followed by yet more – a HD, multi angle daytime ride of the 2009 Peoplemover with audio again mixed from front and rear cars. I also with this edit attempted to use more unusual camera angles to differ from the many ride throughs already available.

And still there’s more! A daytime off ride look at the Peoplemover as it travels around the various parts of Tomorrowland.

For anyone still watching, next up is an in depth look at the WEDway proposed for Lake Buena Vista, E.P.C.O.T. and Communicore. Then look at and ride the WEDway at Houston Airport and the WEDway derived line in Washington DC.

And finally….. a night time HD multi angle ride around Tomorrowland of today.

Each section is set to contemporary Tomorrowland music of the time. 87 minutes long.

He’s back to change the world! Walk into Epcot’s Magic Eye theatre for the full 2010 preshow in source quality.

Then take your seat in the main theatre for the full mainshow, recorded several years ago in Disneyland without a recording ban. For best possible quality and to capture the magic for posterity, this was shot:

In HD
Widescreen
With a polarizing lens for 2D
On tripod
And then was colour corrected and processed with several filters to reveal as much detail as possible and to eliminate almost all visible flicker.

With stereo source audio.
