HI-REZ DESIGNS: PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN - 2011 HALLOWEEN HOME HAUNT DISPLAY VIDEO - LOS ANGELES, CA - OCTOBER 31st, 2011

This is our personal home haunt "Pirates of the Caribbean" show taking over 6 months to design, build, program, and assemble in the atrium of our home. The atrium is a 20' x 21' open space, and everything seen in the video was running inside the atrium. Yes ... this was all running INSIDE our home!

Guests would enter the front door of our home to a "holding area" to view the 7-8 minute pirate show. A barrier was created using 4 full-sized / real wine barrels (donated by our next door neighbor) so approximately 20 guests at a time could stand in a "safe-area" to watch the entire show.

Because of the relatively small space, it was not possible to show EVERYTHING running all at the same time, nor get really WIDE angles with the video camera.

All the footage was shot at AFTER the last "guest" left Halloween night, October 31st, 2011 because it was impossible to shoot video with hundreds of people visiting throughout the evening.

The entire Pirate Show ran approximately 40-45 times flawlessly to 15-20 viewers at a time.

The rear-projection video running on the back wall / glass behind are scenes from "HI-REZ DESIGNS: PIRATE ELEMENTS - VISUAL FX DVD" and can be found at: www.hi-rezdesigns.com

Will be posting detailed photos here on Halloween Forum soon.

Thanks for watching.

Really hard to describe this in words. This is something I would love to see in person. Remarkable presentation and the detail is nothing short of movie set quality. This would win best home haunt hands down. So enjoyable to watch! What's on tap for next year? lol!

I would think that your awesome display would bring a smile onto Walt's face. Congratulations on a job done to the highest of levels. Now if we could only get you and Terra to live on the same block!

We named the dog "WALT" after Walt Disney. My only regret is I never had the chance to shoot the reaction of the little kids that watched the display in action. Some screamed, some cried, most sang along, but they all SMILED ... that's until the EEL came shooting out at the end. 1 kid wet his pants ...

:)

Thank you for the kind words.

Yes we did setup the cemetery but it looked basically the same as last year with a couple additions / subtractions.

Unfortunately, due to some "technical difficulties", we never even got to setup the "ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE" are on the other part of the yard / lawn even though EVERYTHING was built and done including 8 zombies and a collapsing telephone poll.

Real shame ... will have to wait another year, but the nice thing is we can now concentrate on "details" that were overlooked or we didn't get a chance to do this year ...
