Given the motion, and the limited colors, this would be something that could be done in Flash.How hard would it be to film/edit something like this yourself? Even if I had $250 to spare, i do not like the video they use. What software would you use to turn a video of someone into a shadow?
It just occured to me that flash is $599, so unless your planning on using flash for other things like singing pumpkins, talking busts, etc. than $250 is a good price!It sounds fairly easy... i'll look into buying flash tomorrow!
Flash Pro! It costs more on Adobe's site. I have CS3 and it it's learning curve is significantly better than Flash Cs4. Plus, It's cheaper. If you can, try and find a Flash CS3 trial download and well...try it out. There are plenty of tutorial online to help you if you get stuck.Is that for flash lite, or professional? How hard is the learning curve? I've been wanting to do a haunted bust with a projector also, and I just acquired 3 projectors, so it sounds like even for that much money it may be a worthwhile investment, assuming I will be able to learn it fairly well.
I'll give it a shot sometime next week. I'm currently working on some 3d stuff for a client so, I'll get around to working on it soon. If anyone has any grayscale video footage they could send me, that would be great! I don't have a camcorder to film the scenes.Well, if anyone is able to reproduce this effect...

I wondered the same thing while watching the Lunatics Lightning... but if the shadow was from a real window, would it be slanted or straight?
I don't know, the lightning strikes are a good startle effect, but on the other hand, it looks more realistic to have subtle window light.Or even better... Do a "Ring" type approach, where she starts out in the distance walking in an odd way, then in the next flash she's RIGHT IN FRONT of you!
Will you be having the window visible all the time, or only when the lightning strikes?
