  8. Mike i do that with 8 dmx wall washers across the house. Then i program it all in x lights. Get good 36-60 watt wall washers that are dmx controlled. I tried 10 watt ones and the rest of my light show washed the colors out. Sent from my SM-G928V using Tapatalk

  11. Hey all. As it is time to take it all down I wanted to ask a question. Usually I have very little snow on the ground to contend with and can take my display down with relative ease... This year I am stuck with snow on the ground about 8 inches worth and don't see it melting anytime soon. Any tips on getting thing taken down? It is not going to melt as we are not getting above freezing much over the next few weeks it seems and if it snows again it will just reinforce the issue.....
  12. Attached are some pics of the Castle day time and a short video at night on my youtube page...

  14. Gwennifer, I love the tech advancement in the show... Use of water/ fire etc. I have myself a hybrid RGB light show and static display and want to add some fun features to it for next year as well.... That being said... I also think that the show is pushing displays to be come too commercialized.// too much like a TSO concert.... I love TSO and their concerts... Just was at one in November.. but i think at some point there is a balance between Christmas display and full light show... Its my opinion. I love seeing the custom built projects... they are great to see light Santa's workshop on the last episode was amazing... It always inspires me to build something of my own. Last year on the projection house they had built Ice block Trees for the display and my wide asked me if i could build here a 3d castle out of those... So i did and she loves it and so does everyone else. The other think the custom built projects do is reduce the amount of copy catting i get a lot from a neighbor... He cant go out and just buy it and put it up... As far as the show goes... season one was the best because you got to see more of each house not only behind the sense but of the overall house.... now they have to jam-pack more houses and episodes into less time... You don't really get to see everything. Some of my thoughts so far....
  15. YEs that was the sticking point for my wife. She wanted to keep a static display as well because she loves always having some stuff on. I do agree with her
