So last year around christmas time my hubby and i were looking for something new to do with our static display. Sooo we searched on the internet and found animated and said next year. So September comes this year and we decide to do it. We bought 4 controllers with 64 channels (knowing this is a big task).
We got our software and I am off sequencing. (I should let you all know we have a garden center bussiness and my hubby and said NEXT year we should do this at the store.) Come the end of october I show my brother in law what we are doing at our house using our lor software...... Next day .... we are going to do this at our store. I say sure but we will never be able to do the sequencing. My hubby finds animated lighting .com
I would like to let you all know what I have done in less than one month:
At home - with hubby
2-arches 8 channels two strands of lights each
10 mini trees with 10 strands of 70 led lights each
1- 6 foot wreath with 4 colors (each strand of lights zipped tide together)
1-16 foot star with 200 ft of C-9 Lighting
3 bushes with over 5000 lights
One 12 foot mega tree two color
Whole house lined with C-9
I am done with everything but one arch have 4 segments. We have been working on this nights after working at the store.
NOW FOR THE STORE:
With the help of 5 people
3 People are taking strands of lights and zip tying the colors together (red, green, blue etc.) each and every light on all the stands
Me and one other are wrapping trees with lights
8-arches with 8 channels each channel two strands of lights
8-mini trees 2 ft high one color (10 strands each green)
these trees will be in the middle of each arch)
8-4ft trees with 15-20 strands (red and white 4 each)
2-7 1/2 ft trees red and white (two chanells each)
2-10 ft. Swirled trees red and white (two channel each )
2-6ft trees red, white and blue ( three channels each
2-71/2 foot trees red green blue (three channels each)
2-10 ft trees red green blue with four zones (16 channels each
4- 5ft wreaths red green blue white (4 channels each)
1-5 ft tree with 30 strands of blue ( 1 channel )
stropes and spotlights (don't know numbers yet)
We have been working for ten days (8-5) and we have completed all the tree wrapping, we are now working on getting all the cords run to the twelve controllers
they will be here monday to work on the sequencing.
We had to build a room in a green house area that was dark and fire proof so, we built 70 ft by 50 ft dark theater style room that will seat 75.
I can not wait to show you all our videos which I hope to have posted after thanksgiving
Now you may understand why the newbie from Rochester, who wanted a hobbie got sick of lights in 10 days.
But afterwork today I Did finish wrapping a bush,
and now I will start sequencing my last song for our HOME show
