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.

by admin 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!

Ellens Energy Adventure HD – Ultimate Tribute

by admin on Feb.24, 2010, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

Ellens Energy Adventure HD – Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

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.

Pirates of the Caribbean and The Big Thundermountain Railroad WDW – Ultimate Tribute

by admin on Aug.15, 2009, under Adventureland, Frontierland, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World

Pirates of the Caribbean and The Big Thundermountain Railroad WDW – Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Here is the first of a multi part WDW Adventureland and Frontierland history series. It made sense to produce a video showing the history of these 2 attractions since they are both connected, and indeed exist, due to the third attraction also featured in the video – the never built Thunder Mesa and Western River Expedition.

Beginning in the late 60`s see the designs and proposals in detail for Thunder Mesa and its 2 E Tickets, Western River Expedition and Big Thunder Railroad. Follow the plots and concepts of both rides, plus the Mountain, before arriving in 1971 and the reasons behind and the designs of Pirates of the Caribbean. Following this is a full concepts, layout and construction section of the Orlando version, followed by a full multi angle enhanced and remastered edit of the 1973 ride with a new stereo source audio/clean live audio mix. Next, see the history and design of Caribbean Plaza and then jump forward 5 years for the reasons behind and full concept and construction coverage of Big Thundermountain Railroad – and how Western River was nearly built again.

Follow the design and layout of Big Thundermountain, and take a multi angle trip aboard the wildest ride in the wilderness. Next, follow the changes made to both attractions since 1973 and 1980, then see what took place in Pirates of the Caribbean during its major 2006 refurb. This is followed by a full multi angle, stereo source/clean live audio mix ride of the current attraction including full queue coverage. Finally, take a tour of modern day Caribbean Plaza, see the additions made for The Pirates League, what parts of Thunder Mesa were actually used and finish with a night time ride on Big Thundermountain.

85 minutes long.

Spaceship Earth 2007 – Ultimate Tribute from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

Here is my longest single attraction edit to date. Travel back to 1984 and see every major change made to the attraction. The differences between Perrin and Cronkite, Cronkite and Irons, and Irons and Dench. Also see changes made over the years to the post show area.

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.

The full multi angle ridethrough of the Cronkite 1986 attraction, with a look at the changes made.

Spaceship Earth `82

by admin on Dec.30, 2005, under Epcot, Future World, Walt Disney World

Spaceship Earth `82 from Martins Videos on Vimeo.

I have to point out I’ve simulated some of the ascension, space and descent scenes (using various methods from smoke guns at work to photoshopped still images being videoed to making my own monitor footage) but the results are all based on period sources and descriptions from 1982-6. Together they should show what Spaceship was like to a guest on October 1st 1982.

Now the vid – starting at the concept stage from when the ride was mainly behind a domed building, track the development through design and construction to the dedication ceremony. Then take a 1982 multi angle ride, using re -edited Cronkite version video footage interspersed with the aforementioned clips I produced. Features a restored 1982 recording of the full Vic Perrin voiceover too.
