Ok I had this gemmy prop lying around that i haven't used it is a gemmy fcg that has a ghost attached. I took off the ghost and added some of my candles and got this. I think I will like it even with the annoying sound and plan on triggering it with a light on a motion sensor.

Halloween71, When I first glanced at this I was sure I wasn't going to like it, but once I watched the video, I have changed my mind. The movement is excellent. Will you upright the candles some way? I attempted a flying crank candles rig this year too. I have video of it only during the day and it was a little breezy which ruins the effect I was shooting for. I am trying to copy the Harry Potter candles and give movement to some of them. Here is my video in the wind. Ended up taking them down before I got a chance to film them at night in low wind conditions. There is a vid of the flames in my photobucket.

I agree with indianaholmes
I thought that was going to be dumb but wow! Very cool.
I have three of those things that I packed away in boxes because they are pretty cheezy with the ghosts.
Now I have to think of all sorts of things to hang on them including candles!

Where did you find the candles?

Also, you could probably disable the speaker on the mechanism.
I did that on some moving books props that I bought last year.
I hate the guy saying the dumb little ryhm as the books move in and out.

Halloween71, I forgot to say that I successfully disabled the speaker on it but simply opening up the section with the speaker (I believe it's one of the end sections) and simply snipping a wire... voila! Cheesy sound gone!
