I have Animated Lighting's Haunted House In a Box Pro, which allows me to use Animated Lighting's Animation Director sotware. It's a awesome controller and having the ability to do custom shows is very flexible. To see a video of a test run for this years halloween show click here:
Each light represents a colored flood light in front a prop or a tombstone. The two floodlights that simulate lightning will be aimed at the house. The orange netlights will be on bushes in front of the house. The pirate ship will be a pirate skelleton and a treasure chest in front of a tombstone. The two crows will be atop tombstones, and the blacklight will be for a UV reactive hanging ghost. Hope you enjoy the video of AL's Haunted House In a Box Pro.
I buy Animated Lighting stuff too. But I don't have haunted house in a box. I just buy the controllers and software and go from there. Here is my video I have for my crypt. I put the controller in the roof of the crypt. I think I might have to add more lights this year.
Very nice GPS. I wish I could spend that kinda moulah as well but that would be what 1300.00 CDN... its hard enought to rationalize 40.00 for a skelly for me. Besides, my hubby will have to get new axles for his jeep If I got that and Ive been fighting that for 1 year now....I would love to see the finished product. make sure you post a vid after Halloween!
Thanks everyone for the kind words. I will diffinately will be posting a video of the final show with all the props up. I am currently working on another show for halloween that is a medley of different halloween songs. It came out great. As soon as I finish the programming I'll post a video of that show with my little practice light setup. It really helps to have something set up where you can experiment. Animation Director has a really cool feature called the visualizer which lets you see what your show would look like. You can import a picture of your house and draw in where the lights will be and the visualizer will show you what your show will look like. So far I haven't had a chance to play with it, but it looks real cool.
