Finally, the complete 1982 EPCOT Center Imagination 3D movie, shot by Mike Lee at Widen Your World on a tripod with a polarising lens. With his permission, I joined both parts into one file, synced up the full stereo source audio track and removed 75-80% of the screen flicker. To preserve quality this is an MPEG file, not divx.
Shot in both Epcot and Disneyland, here is a full multi camera record of the 1994 3D attraction.
Take a full HD daytime tour of the Epcot Imagination fountain garden, then walk into the Imagination Institutes Magic Eye Theatre. First watch a handheld video of the whole True Colors preshow with source audio. Then watch a full handheld video of the original Californian preshow with Dr. Channing being interviewed for WNN-TV. Finally, see the whole recent preshow video tripod shot in HD including the full slogan video, the full What Will You Imagine preshow and the full introduction safety video with a clean ALD/induction audio mix. Finally, walk into the main theatre for a tripod shot main show with a new stereo source quality audio mix, and both main and side screens tripod shot with the main screen having flicker removal and polarised 2D filters. To finish, walk out for a look at Epcots fountain garden at night. Main show shot in Disneyland in 2009 with permission.
50 minutes long. Enjoy!
A research project that turned into a full video. With the help of Craig Mathieson and John Werner, ex WED employees who helped design the original Imageworks, see the layout of the original upstairs level of the pavilion and also each and every original exhibit. See what changed during the rehab of 1990-1991 and how the layout altered, then see each new exhibit. See the original fountain garden of 1982, what has changed, then as a bonus go into the Magic Eye Theatre; see 4 minutes of Makin’ Memories with source audio – the only known video recording of the preshow, and then see the very rare Dreamfinder 2D introduction to Magic Journeys by Michael Jittlov that was never used and never shown to any guests. And finally, see a remastered copy of the first 12 minutes of Magic Journeys, shot live with source audio.
47 Imaginative minutes long. Enjoy!
A holy grail to many, here is the preshow from Honey I Shrunk The Audience which played at Epcot before the current version. The first 30 seconds of text are rebuilt, and after that the video is footage provided by WDWGuy08, and audio is source quality.
Finally, a remake of my Journey into YOUR Imagination and With Figment video. Begin in 1982 at the pavilions design, and the ride that didn`t open until 1983. Take a look at how the original ride worked, and the problems it had that would play a key part in the rehab decisions 15 years later. Then follow step by step how the pavilion changed in 1998-9, what was removed and what was added. This is followed by full coverage of the 1999 queue, and a new hi quality multi angle, new clean live audio mix full ride on Journey into YOUR Imagination. Next follow the changes made in 2001-2, and then walk the full queue of the current pavilion. Then take a full ride of Journey into Imagination with Figment, with a new high quality multi angle video edit and a new high quality clean live audio mix that features each part of the new One Little Spark in full. Explore the current Imageworks, and then watch split screen compasison videos of both the 1983 and 2002 rides and the 1999 and 2002 rides, showing what replaced what and what used to be where. Finally, see comparisons of the changes made in the foyer, queue and Imageworks areas and what used to be where compared to the pavilion today. 55 minutes long!
Another totally new re-edit for 2006, with much better quality video and audio, and more material. Trace the origins of the Imagination pavilion – from the never built Ecology pavilion through to Dreamfinder and Figments beginnings. Full concept and construction section including the rush to complete, what happened on opening day, and full animated tour of the pavilion, ride, ride system and Imageworks. Walk into the lobby, with complete coverage of the murals, then load for a full and complete multi angle, source audio journey, with a high quality source audio mix. Walk through the shop and take the stairs into the pyramid, then venture around the original Imageworks. Finally, take the escalator back down for a walk around the fountain garden in 1985 and 1990. 38 minutes long.
Walk into EPCOT Center`s Magic Eye Theatre. The full widescreen movie (taken from the park print but in 2D) – not the 4:3 made-for-TV version. A look at the in theatre effects, with full source audio.
Futureworld 90 – a walk around; I`ve wanted to do something like this for a while. I have so many little clips from June 1990 on tape I wanted to get them all together, you could call this EPCOT Center: everything BUT the attractions.
