  1. Electronic/Software: Audio for random props, media player?

    Halloween Props
    For those who have multiple sounds coming from multiple props, what are you doing? Not talking about custom programming all hooked up to computer, etc. Just want to add sound to 2-3 props and have the speaker right by that prop. For example my rocking chair that moves, I want to have a speaker...
  2. Grr… Went from 3 to 1 fog machine

    General Halloween
    Figures, just when I thought I was going to have 3 fog machines this year… A couple of months ago, I tested our main fog machine and it was fine. The cheap 400W Chauvet and the 1000W no-name brand I got from Goodwill had seized up, so I put a 50/50 vinegar solution in and ran them, which...
  3. Scariest scenes in horror movie history

    Horror Discussion
    My picks 1. The Ring - I saw her face, the cut away to Katie in the closet. 2. The Conjuring - Christine sees something in the closet and wakes her sister Nancy to investigate. The audience doesn't see what it is, nor does Nancy, but what Christine sees and describes is terrifying. 3. The...

  5. Electronic/Software: Noisy jaw servo

    Halloween Props
    Anyone have any suggestions for cutting down the noise that the jaw servo makes in talking skulls? When I slow the speed down a bit on the other servos in my 3-axis skull they are much quieter, but if I slow down the jaw servo I figure it won't be sinked up well.

  8. Suggestion on fogger timer...

    Halloween Props
    Hello everyone. I hope this is the correct section for this... I recently bought a Rosco 1500 fog machine for $10 at a surplus store. I knew nothing about it, but it felt solid and then I found out it is, or was at one time, a very high-end theatrical fogger. It works incredibly well, spitting...

  11. Electronic/Software: Problem with Spooky Town 2011 Gothic Mansion

    Halloween Props
    Has anyone else picked up the Gothic Haunted Mansion 15199? We took one home and plugged it in. Looks great, but when we turned the volume all the way down, just to have the lights with no sound, there was an annoying high pitched squeal. It was there with the sound up, just harder to hear. We...
