Photo Memories #10, Epcot Center's Horizons Pt 2.

Hello and welcome back to Photo memories #10, part 2 of
Epcot Center’s Horizons
. Below is a shot of the future from the 1950’s. I
always referred to it as the neon city.


Our next stop is the desert farm Mesa Verde. To fully appreciate the
above orange harvester section, spray some orange air freshener and take
a deep whiff (to this day, every time I smell that orange scent I think
of this scene). This was the Soarin of it’s time.


Next is the harvester control module and hovercraft. You get the
opportunity to fly this back to the Future Port at the conclusion of the
ride (you could choose between Desert, Undersea & Space endings).


The next transition scene features the cat and jumping fish (a similar
effect could be found on the retired
Disneyland
attraction Mine Train through Nature’s Wonderland). Finally we
see the family preparing for a birthday party in the futuristic desert
kitchen.

Please stop back soon for Pt 3 of the
Horizons
Photo Memories extended series.

Photo memories #9, Epcot Center's Horizons.

Hi everyone, welcome to my photo memories #9 featuring part one from
Epcot Center’s classic attraction Horizons! I hope you enjoy the photos.


 

The photo above was taken shortly after Epcot Center opened and Horizons
was still under construction. Above is Jules Verne from the "Looking
Back at Tomorrow" scenes.


The scene of the man in the moon above reminds me of a similar scene in
the new version of Journey Into Imagination with Figment. I will post a
photo comparison in a future edition.


I always loved the retro look of the robots in this section of the
attraction. It looks like the one on the right really has his hands full.


I will be releasing my latest DVD title featuring Horizons very soon.
Please check back for details. The Horizons attraction was always a
favorite of mine so I have been working extra hard to make the DVD I
always wanted but could never find. The process has involved editing
multiple video recordings of the attraction from 1991-1998, scanning
classic Epcot photos (over 1000 scans from 47,000+ images) for this and
the other pavilions for my
Epcot 25th Anniversary series
, color correcting and dust removal,
sometimes pixel by pixel of the Horizons photos for the slide show (very
painstaking & time consuming work but the end result really makes the
photos come to life). As I have such an abundance of great footage and
Images, I will again be offering a standard edition, companion
collection title and a 2-disc set containing everything.

As always, if you want to request a future DVD idea, Photo Memory topic

A Salute to Roy Disney at the Philadelphia Film Festival.

I had the great pleasure last week to attend ‘A Salute to Roy Disney’ at
the Philadelphia Film
Festival
with my old friends
Jim Hill
& Nancy Stadler,
Tim Devine
& my wife Florence. Mr. Disney was being honored with the
Inspiration Award and interviewed by legendary film critic
Leonard Maltin
. It was a very enjoyable presentation covering Roy’s entire
life and career with Disney. Below are some photos from the event

.
 

The evening began with a fantastic montage of classic Disney animation.
Next Mr. Disney was presented the Philadelphia Film Society’s
Inspiration Award.


Leonard Maltin interviewed Mr. Disney about growing up as a Disney, his
work at the Disney Studio, Fantasia 2000 and his non Disney Interests.


Mr. Disney was surprisingly candid as he spoke about his troubles with
Michael Eisner
and the Disney Board of directors.


At the conclusion Roy posed for photos with his award and thanked
everyone for attending. I had the pleasure of speaking to both Mr.
Disney and Mr. Maltin after the event and they were both cordial and
forthcoming. Mr. Maltin commented that he was happily surprised to see
the Disney
Treasures
DVD series continue as he was previously informed it was
coming to an end. It was a great night that I wish every Disney fan
could have attended.

For more photos and a complete review of the event please check out Jim
Hill’s great article
