Default New to forum - hatbox ghost projection help needed

Hello folks

New amateur Halloween freak. I have an idea that I was trying to explore. I would like to make my version of the hatbox ghost as people leave my yard. I was wondering if anyone hard experience with computer generated images. I'm not sure if I would need two projectors so the heads ca reappear in the box. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi drjim,

What a great project.

I assume you've seen this video,
I'd check out Darren Perks Hatbox Ghost mask at Dynamic Design International.

I assume you'll only project animated eyes on the mask and project the entire head (with animated eyes) in the hatbox.

You'll want to make sure you can get a single projector to focus on the mask and the hatbox given they're in different planes (i.e., the hatbox is at arms-length from the mask). I suspect two projectors will be easier.

Do you plan to (mechanically) animate the ghost's body (i.e., will the mask and hatbox be moving)?

After further consideration, I'd definitely pursue internal projection with the mask.

Default Internal Projection

Hi drjim,

Any luck with your Hatbox Ghost project? Someone on the HauntForum must be using internal projection. Anyone?
