When EPCOT Center opened in 1982, it utilized over one and half million feet of film to produce over four hours of shows. These films, totaling more than 73,000 feet of finished product, represents the work of 16 production crews in more than 30 countries and nearly every state in the USA.
Reflections of China (shown above) which was formely known as the Wonders of China, was produced by Jeff Blyth using an enterly Chinese film crew to shoot the first major American production inside modern China. The Circlevision cameras were taken to areas of the country normally considered inaccessible and in many cases the only way to bring in supplies and equipment was on camleback. In the Annui providence, the three hundrend pound circlevision camera was carried on the shoulders of the crew up 16,700 steps and precariously perched on the steep slopes of Haunghson Mountain.
Reflections of China takes audiences to the 6000 mile long Great Wall, to witness the fabled Mongol horsemen on the wiry steeds, to the seldom seen Tibet and even inside the Forbidden City.
