I love that effect and had the same idea as you--my window videos would look really cool through those boarded up windows. Very cool....!

I'm going to start working on a boarded up window effect made from foam. 

inspiration from here:

has anyone else tried this?  i want to give the windows the boarded up look but still leave enough "show through" so that my window videos are visible

I thought I would share the link to the motor we used in the half toe pincher coffin and the breathing grave prop for anyone who is interested.Motor

My top 3 would be:

  • Graveyard Columns
  • Cloaked Ghosts
  • and I can use a peeper as well

I will always talk lighting.  Currently I am using a 32channel system and I am looking to add another 16 channels to that this year.

I like grave stone peeper too.  No hang man for me, but I would come to the make n take anyways.

Lori & Mark - I dare say his daughter had a "scream"... It is a great video, For the MNT I am into the cloaked ghosts, I need a gravestone peeper, and a kicking mech for my hangman prop.

Comment by david smith on March 28, 2016 at 3:40pm

My top 3 would be the cloaked ghosts,fcg, or the cauldron creep (been tryin to get one built for years,lol)

Comment by Lori on March 28, 2016 at 1:48pm

Mark, that sounds cool.  My youngest does set construction for CCHS theater productions. He's done lighting and sound too, but I can't get him to program my talking skulls.  Go figure.

Watching your video has given me some new ideas for next Halloween.  Let's see if I can pull it off.

Thanks Lori. She had a great time, as did her three friends. This year she's getting serious with makeup and will be doing all of the principal actor's makeups for Frankenstein at her high school, so this Halloween ought to be pretty interesting! Lots of actors in great makeup hopefully...
