Wonders of Life – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute

by on Aug.04, 2018, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

Wonders of Life – Martins Complete Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

The last of my completely new Futureworld re edits (but not the last from EPCOT Center) sees a huge, 100 minute long detailed look at the 1989 pavilion.

Start with a look at early designs and proposals for the Health and Life pavilion, how the final design was arrived at, laid out and then built.

Walk into the pavilion and take a full multi angle tour. As well as vintage 80s and 90s clips, much of this footage was shot early and late in the day of the pavilions last day of operation to show unobscured views of the interior. This is a detailed tour of the inside, walking pass Pure and Simple, then walk through the exhibits of Sensory Fun House and arrive at…

Cranium Command
Walk the queue and see the holding area displays. See the full preshow in high quality, steadily shot and stabilised in an empty theatre with screen flicker greatly reduced and an ALD audio track.
Walk into the main theatre, take your seat for a full, multi camera complete mainshow edit, partly tripod shot, again with all projection flicker greatly reduced and with a new stereo source quality audio mix.
Leave the Cranium theatre and cross over to…

The Making of Me
Take your place in the queue for the Birth Theatre, then take your seat for the full movie presentation. This unobscured video was tripod shot, keystone corrected and flicker eliminated. Audio is a clean live and ALD mix.
Walk through Coaches Corner, MET Life Styles and then head for….

Body Wars
Walk the whole main queue with all three complete preshows in source quality. Proceed to the waiting area and watch the whole load video, again in source quality. Board body probe 229 for the full, unobscured main ride. Video was steadily shot with a bonus of the ride motion base disabled, enhanced and is flicker free. The side screen was similarly shot and is overlaid as needed. Audio is a new stereo source quality track.
Exit the ride into Frontiers of Medicine and then enjoy…

Goofy About Health.
The whole show presented as a multi screen edit with each screen shot separately and a clean, enhanced live stereo audio track.
Take a look at Anacomical Players, take a last look around and then see the major changes made over the years. Phew!

Next we move to World Showcase.

Star Tours HD – Ultimate Tribute

Star Tours HD – Ultimate Tribute – 1 of 2 from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Star Tours HD – Ultimate Tribute – 2 of 2 from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Now the US versions of the original attraction have closed, here is an edit that was six months in the making.

Start way back with the history of attempting to use a motion base as an attraction, then see the developing relationship between George Lucas and Michael Eisner. Follow the ride planning, with a full concept and construction section for both parks. See the Disneyland opening, and changes added over the years. Next see the original Disney-MGM exteriors and also changes made over the years. This is followed by a full tour of the Disney’s Hollywood Studios exterior as it was before closing and a look at the differences to the preshow and boarding area layout. The take a full look at the Disneyland queue and preshow areas, again just before closing, shot by Chris Bales.

Next is the full multi camera, mostly tripod shot preshow in both the lower and upper rooms. All droids, Starspeeder effects, video wall, details, everything – both the R2D2/C3P0 and GT-4T and GT-9T preshows are shown in full from multiple angles, with source audio. Wander through the line taking in the details, arrive at load and watch the overhead monitor as your flight to the moon of Endor is prepared, followed by the safety video – again tripod shot with source audio. Next walk into your speeder for a split screen full ride using source ride film and incabin coverage of REX, the side video screen and the in-cabin effects. This is set to a new stereo source mix of the ride audio, remixed to bring the score forward more and with added incabin audio effects to sound just like the attraction did.

Finally, exit the Disneyland ride and walk into the store, then exit the Orlando version and walk into the store too. Finally, take a look at both closed attractions as the adventure gets ready to continue.

65 minutes long. Enjoy!

Dinosaur at DAK – Ultimate Tribute

by on May.18, 2010, under DinoLand U.S.A., Disney's Animal Kingdom, Walt Disney World

Dinosaur at DAK – Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Go back in time 65 million years, or to the mid 90`s to see how Animal Kingdoms opening E Tickets developed and how the indoor EMV attraction came from an outdoor family ride. After a full concepts and construction section, learn the story to the ride with a lot of story and ride details often missed by guests. Then it`s on to a time travel trip circa 1998 for a recreation of the original Countdown to Extinction, with multi camera video including long missing visual effects and the original audio narration that was changed at park opening. See the changes made over the years, then take a modern day trip on Dinosuar including a look at the Rotunda show, full preshow with ALD audio, a look around the research facility and finally a full ride with multi camera video and an induction / clean live audio track. 33 minutes.
It`s fast. It`s a blast. It`s in the past!

Mission SPACE – Ultimate Tribute

by on Apr.19, 2008, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

Mission SPACE – Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Go back to 1978 to see the origins of EPCOTs Space pavilion. See how Journeys in Space evolved, and how it was nearly built twice. See the Horizon connection, how Horizons nearly stayed with us and then how the building itself nearly stayed, and then see Mission: Space be announced, built and finally dedicated.

Take a full tour around the exterior plaza, then a full tour of the queue and holding areas inside. Queue for the ride, see all the preshows, then experience the full ride with fullscreen, clear video and a new clear inride audio mix. Walk around the postshow area and gift shop, and see what changes have been made since 2003. Finally, take a peek in the HP VIP lounge too.
