When I did my first lighting test over 4 years ago, this is what we recorded:

Then in 2010, we recorded this:

Funny story about this clip:

We originally didn't program WoW for this project. But the client was so unhappy with what "the other guy" programmed, he tasked us with redoing the song from scratch, on site, in about 24 hours (while still attending to our other duties). Quite an adventure we had that day :)

Oh how times have changed.

I have one other video in-between but YouTube and Vimeo got picky and threw that show off.

Too bad :( It was a pretty nifty setup.

This is my video from 2010 and 32 channels. I am still going to do Wizards in 2011, but as part of a TSO only show running a few days a week. For some reason, so many of the songs by TSO contain the beat, building and action that lend themselves so well to sequencing.

I liked your video! Your house looks like it has eyes!

I think I've commented elsewhere on your Guatemalan Tree. I really like it. But it is so, so . . .professional. On the other hand, I really liked your 2007 video, Especially because it was set up INSIDE the house! Your wife must be a saint. Thanks for sharing the evolution.

Some people get tired of WoW, but the people that drive a hundred miles to see the lights are expecting WoW. It is what the customer wants. http://vimeo.com/17244044
Your're right and your version is Very Nice! Edited by BaldEagleChristmas

I went 4 years without it and added it last year and people love it. I even get e-mail from people that ask me "What is the name of the song that starts at 9:30 into your video?" and I have to tell them Wizards in Winter even though it is in the description. People don't listen to Christmas music or watch displays as much as we do and it is a new experience every year for people.

Here is mine at 9:12 in the show

Its always a favorite - and yes, I'm sick of it like everyone else ... but Wizards

is something you should play because of the overall appeal and respect for the hobby.

I'll probably do a 2011 version as well -- lol

And heres a version from 2008

I'm pretty tired of it myself but it still gets applause from the crowd so it's staying in.

WOW sets up for a big ending that makes the crowd go Wow! near the end when the music gets busy, so do my elements, they're all bouncing back and forth, spinning, flashing, twirling and running. As the song closes they shut off one at a time until the crescendo they all flash back on for a half-second then just the strobes are left for three seconds.
