  3. Projector Protector

    Halloween Props
    Has anyone put their projector outside and if so how did you protect it from the weather? My thought was to get a large storage container, attache it upside down to a small table that is staked into the ground and cut two holes in the container. One hole is to be covered with plexiglass and...

  5. Electronic/Software: Free and DIY Halloween projection video loops

    Halloween Props
    This is my first attempt at a Halloween projection video. I was playing with various techniques and just getting comfortable with the video editing software. It has no audio, and is meant to be one of several loops that I'll use in the days leading up to Halloween. Feel free to use this in...

  8. Prop Showcase: Most Successful Addition?

    Halloween Props
    So after working diligently on my mausoleum facade over our screened in porch complete with ghosts and ghouls being projected from inside... it turns out that the goofy projection of the singing jack-o-lanterns was the most wildly popular. As in parents yelling, begging, and finally dragging...

  10. Atmosphere Effects: Test of Ghostly Apparitions DVD using Polaroid / Mitsubishi XD500U projector

    Halloween Props
    Thought I'd start a separate thread for tests of the Ghostly Apparitions projection effects DVD using my Mitsubishi XD500U projector. The only two "usable" projections for me--since I aim for mild and spooky vs. startle / scary--are the "Head of the House" (may complement Rona the Ghost Maid...
  11. Lighting: Test of Polaroid / Mitsubishi XD500U using Dminor's Rona Ghost Maid projection effect

    Halloween Props
    Here are a few test videos using my "new" (refurbished off eBay) ~2,200 lumens projector I got for less than $100 with free shipping, having less than 500 lamp hours. It's a model we were discussing over on another thread--a used Polaroid from Amazon. Although one is branded Polaroid and mine is...

    Halloween Props
    I am planning to rear project an AtmosFearRx ghosts dvd through my large set of crypt doors/wall. The wall will sit in front of our garage. One door will be open, the other closed. The projector will project from within. I'd hope that the material used as the projection surface would not be...
  13. Atmosphere Effects: WXGA video projector - any good values on new or used models?

    Halloween Props
    I'm downsizing my physical Halloween yard haunt prop collection in anticipation of moving to a lot smaller house (with a lot less space for storage and a smaller lawn). The idea is to do even more video projections. I also want to get a projector that can serve double-duty for a (modest) home...

  16. Electronic/Software: Downloadable Projections?

    Halloween Props
    Looking for a shadow killer window projection. I like Hi-Rez and atmosfearfx but I need it in a download as I need it for an event this Saturday (10/13/12) and they only sell DVD versions. Anyone know if there are any other places that sell similar window projections but as a download? Thanks...
  17. Electronic/Software: Ghost Sighting

    Halloween Props
    Here's a Pepper's Ghost Illusion that I am thinking of revisiting this year. This example is a loop of Madame Leota from the Haunted Mansion projected onto plexiglass from underneath by a flattened out laptop. I was thinking of putting this in a mini mausoleum to hide the plexiglass edges.
  18. Lighting: DG-747 Digital Galaxy projector. Do you own one? Better model for similar price?

    Halloween Props
    The DG-747 Digital Galaxy projector seems to be good for Halloween applications due to its low cost (~$300), relatively high lumens (~2500), and low cost of replacement bulbs (~$20 to ~$30). Resolution is 800 x 600. The copy on the projector says it is "HD compatible" but 800 x 600 is not HD. So...
