So, I've always wanted to do a Pepper's ghost effect but don't want to do projection as I like the more realistic look you get with projecting real objects (ala animatronic ghosts in the Haunted Mansion). With that said, it seems to me the effect would be difficult to pull off outside using the traditional method like this because you would have a hard time hiding the animatronic "ghost".
However, my understanding is that when the effect was first used, it was basically "upside down" from what you usually see today and used two pieces of glass like this.
To me this, would wok great in a cemetery setting as you could hide the ghost in the front bottom portion of, say a coffin, and still create a good effect. Has anyone ever tried this effect with two pieces of glass? What are the limitations? Thanks in advance.
