Typical Pylons

We know many of you are at home for the next few weeks and we wanted to get a few new episodes and films out as quickly as possible to keep you busy. In this mini-episode, the team interviews Gene Brignola and gets the inside scoop on the original Pylon Fountain at EPCOT Center. From how was conceptualized, designed, manufactured to installation! You’ll never believe what the pylons actually represent and the time that went into creating it.

Be sure to click the notification bell too, that way you are alerted when we post.  Finally, be sure to check out Vimeo if that is your thing, as we will post there as well. This past month we have posted a great resort tour from The Disney Channel, The original DVC Resort Tour, and a great Innoventions commercial from the mid-90s.

As a bonus, to accompany this episode we have released a great new video from 1980 Sea World. This was shot on Super8 with sound! You are going to love this vintage footage that looks amazing – especially the Whale & Dolphin show.

That was a project, to say the least. Incredible, genuinely gifted entrepreneur.

Looking at the pylons in the negative (rifles) is soooo cool….hopefully the new ones will be the same…You guys give us so much to checkout the next time we go. Not just to ride the rides, but really take a closer look at things we don’t think about!!! Can’t wait until I go in June…

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
