A Wee Bit Wicked
Hey Haunters! I need some help for my 2015 yard haunt. I am revamping my whole look this year, my house is going to be the old mortuary and the whole front yard is a graveyard....a BIG graveyard. The front porch is going to be covered with hanging, glowing ghosts of all shapes and sizes. I am using some of the props that I have displayed for years, but there are many, many new ghosts to make, and lots of tombstones to create. Here's where I run into problems. I need to draw from my fellow forum member's experiences so I can go with the best plan for my haunt. I want to incorporate projections in my yard haunt this year. I have one Epson projector that a forum friend found for me on Craig's List and bought on my behalf. It's a really nice projector and I have a DVD player for it, so I have one projector for a singing pumpkin display near the trick or treat candy table. But I also want to have a projector for Mr. Chicken's tombstone projection on one of the tombstones in my graveyard. I just bought the projection last week, and I am super excited about it. I think that will really wow and impress people when they come to my yard, it's such a great projection. (So I need a projector/dvd player for that projection) Also I'd love to project flying ghosts or a flying ghost projection in the graveyard, a little further back so that people can't really get close to it, but only view from a distance of 5 or 6 yards. (I'll need a projector/dvd player for that as well, and also come kind of screen to play it on....maybe scrim?) Since I am new to the whole projection thing, do I have to use a projector and DVD player for every projection? (Is there an easier solution?) I'd like to hear from you guys the things you've tried and had success with, your suggestions, etc. I just need some feedback as to which direction I should go. Thanks so much for any advice you can give me.
