Episode #328 - Circle of Life





Overview:  After a renovation, Symbiosis was unfortunately closed.  Opened in its place was The Circle of Life: an Environmental Fable.  This show stretched the nature of The Land to now talk about conservation through the lens of our friends from the Lion King.

Notes: While Symbiosis was a cinematic marvel, The Circle of Life was less so, though it did reuse scenes from the original film

Episode #327 - Symbiosis



Overview:  Within the Land pavilion was a remarkable move called Symbiosis that celebrated man's creative partnership with the land. It included marvels of past and present technologies and accomplishments. I talk about this film, and what it was all about.






Notes: The film was directed by Paul Gerber, and he actually brought people to see it as a living resume.  It was shot in 70mm (large film format) and included shots from around the globe.

Episodes #325 & #326 - The Land Pavillion








Overview:  The Land is another of Epcot’s opening day pavilions in future world.  The objective was to look at the earth, agriculture, and ecology.  in the original design, the large atrium would have been an arboretum.  It featured a large mosaic, a pretty amazing film, a boat ride, and a show about food. 





Notes: The pavilion has been through three general iterations in its history, based on sponsorship. But it still kept its focus on earth-based science.
