After years of running a yard haunt in Canada, once we moved, and I had to part with all my props, cemetery fencing, motorized coffins, and physical items it got me thinking about what could be next.
I have always enjoyed digital, sound, and lighting effects but what I really wanted was an every changing Halloween display. That was a bit too complicated and costly at the time, but have always hoped for the day when it would be possible.
For years I have watched the progression of 3D projection mapping (or Projection AR as its sometimes referred). Its a fascinating technology pioneered by Walt Disney with the first installation in 1969 on the Haunted Mansion attraction. I have tried for years to replicate that effect and hope to be able to upscale that experience. Fast forward to the 2000’s and 3D projection mapping is now possible but still complicated.
My goal for Freaky Farrell Road will be to explore these technologies further. Stay tuned more more updates…
