It all started with syncing Christmas lights to music and the past couple of years it’s migrated to Halloween much to the delight of the folks trying to sell Halloween colored Christmas lights. It’s the sort of spectacle that I’d love to do myself if A) I had a house and B) I had the talent, neither of which I posses. Still, they’re fun to watch.
FIrst up is the Thomas Halloween 2013 show featuring one of my current favorite songs Sail by AWOLnation:
Or, if you prefer, something a bit more in-line with the season This Is Halloween from A Nightmare Before Christmas:
Not to be outdone, here’s Thriller by Creative Lighting Displays out in California:
The Hallett’s light show isn’t as elaborate as some others, but does feature some cool projected animation in addition to a 10 foot singing skull:
One more light show that incorporates a touch of projection mapping as part of the show:
It’s really amazing how much this has taken off over the past several years. There’s a lot of people out there devoting a massive amount of time and effort in designing and setting up these light shows. Whole house projection mapping appears to be the next big thing, but I couldn’t find any good examples from this year.
One of the best examples from last year is Bates Haunt’s 2012 show which runs a good 20 minutes:
The folks behind Bates Haunt have tutorials on their site showing how they do it for those of you interested in trying your hand at it.
If you’ve seen some cool Halloween displays this year, even if they’re just static, leave a comment and tell us about it. If you can link to pictures or a video that would be even better.
