Christmas Lights Gone Wild!

This Christmas display is jaw-dropping awesome, although I would have to kill the guy if he were my neighbor!

So do you think this is real or photoshopped? I'm almost sure it's still-action manipulation.

Awful !! Don't think it is a montage though, unfortunately I think it is real, and agree with you, poor people those who happen to be his/her neighbour.

You wrecked my bandwidth... that vid wasn't even mine! ;-)

The song from the vid was Wizards in Winter by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

raniday...

Take a look at the last line on that page... the link is there. I thought the same thing at first, too.

I had had the same problem but the video worked from Racc Iria's link (without saving ! )
But what fun the video is and set to the music great, it must of took ages to make,I dont think photoshopped but animated some how, but i do agree i wouldn't like to live by the house when all the lights are on ! ! ! ! ! This christmas lighting has only really took of here over the last 4/5 years, and houses done to extreme are rare and get a visit ( with the grandkids of course )

Thanks, guys. I'm glad I didn't miss it. It's extreme and tacky, and I love it You have to admire the ingenuity and energy it took to set that up. No, I wouldn't do it to my house, but if it were somewhere nearby, I would drive to see it............unless they were my neighbors, and then I would fuss.

Now I have had neighbors that I would have been more than glad to rig up my house that way, have it play from say dark to 10 or 11, every night between T-day and xmas

To try a similar effect, I could maybe generate key frames with Phototoshop. What software do you recommend to generate between frames and to synchronize with music?

I use ProShow Producer extensively for doing videos similar to this one. The less expensive "Gold" version is capable of this too. It can be found here:
