Did you know?
  • The original Rudolph did not have a red nose. In that day and age, red noses were seen as an indicator of chronic alcoholism and Montgomery Ward didn’t want him to look like a drunkard. To complete the original picture, he was almost named Reginald or Rollo.
  • The Christmas wreath was originally hung as a symbol of Jesus. The holly represents his crown of thorns and the red berries the blood he shed.
  • The three traditional colors of most Christmas decorations are red, green and gold. Red symbolizes the blood of Christ, green symbolized life and rebirth, and gold represents light, royalty and wealth.
  • Tinsel was invented in 1610 in Germany and was once made of real silver.
  • The oldest artificial Christmas trees date back to the late 1800s and were made of green raffia (think grass hula skirts) or dyed goose feathers. Next the Addis Brush Company used their machinery that wove toilet brushes to create pine-like branches for artificial Christmas trees that were less flammable and could hold heavier decorations.
  • ‘Jingle Bells’ – the popular Christmas song was composed by James Pierpont in Massachusetts, America. It was, however, written for thanksgiving and not Christmas.
  • Coca-Cola was the first company that used Santa Claus during the winter season for promotion.
  • Hallmark introduced their first Christmas cards in 1915.
  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.
  • Christmas 2018 countdown has already begun. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.

Singing Face Sequence For Ac-Dc's Thunderstruck?

Recommended Posts

Hello friends,

 

I was thinking of adding ac-dc's thunderstruck to my halloween display. But time is to short to write the sequence for the singing face myself. Anybody knows where i would be able to buy a singing face sequence for this song?

 

Cheers,

Gunther

Am I missing the link to a vid cuz I'm not seeing it. :( Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

 

You're not missing the link, it's just youtube that won't let the video play on mobile devices because it has copyrighted material (the music) in it.

The vid was awesome..great job. Can you provide me any details and guidance on learning mouth movement... maybe it should be its own thread... I bet I am not the only one who is totally lost on it...

Basically the different mouth movements are treated just like beats of music. It takes a few songs to get familiar with it. You just have to vision the position of your mouth with the different major syllables until you are able to see it as it is. Look at other sequences and play them back at a slower rate and really listen to the words and look at where the lights turn on and off to create the movements. Try not to think so much about it being mouth movements as much as beats of music. It takes practice, and time/patience. Hope this helps. Enjoy!

Steve
