I recently viewed a video of a haunted attraction that showed some cgi technology being used in the attraction. It showed portraits that had projected characters coming to life. Did anyone else see this and can you direct me to the video footage? I'm almost positive it was on YouTube. Thanks for any help!

I've seen these cgi effects first hand went I went to the Darkness in St. Louis and I have to say they are very impressive! I guess Larry is selling them if there showing up in other haunted attractions but I havent seen where he is selling them? Maybe thats one of the things he is bringing to
Transworld this year! Very cool!

No, I don't think he is selling them. ( correct me I'm wrong, Larry ) Halloween productions designed and built Bayville Scream park for the Jeckel and Hyde Entertainment group as a top notch attraction, I mean look at that facade.... it is Hauntgasmic ;)

Kel,

All of the CGI stuff used at The Darkness and Bayville Scream Park is available at http://www.hauntedhousesupplies.com/computer_animations_CGI.htm. As you may recall, I purchased my attraction from Halloween Productions and Jim Kelly, Larry's business partner, told me that they have a guy up in Canada that produces the CGI for them.

p.s. We must meet up at TW!

Awesome Kevin! That's what I've been looking for! When did Larry add that to the site??? I must have missed the announcement! You bet, we're going to have to meet. Are you going on the Fright Tundra Tour? If not, I should be able to be found at the Crown Plaza bar area. Several people have told me to look for them there. The four of us coming to TW are also going to try to make it to the pizza place mentioned on another thread. Thanks again!

Kel,
I can't get them either, I get a page that they should be on with an option to return to the menu page. I really want to see the samples :( ...

Ya they work on the Halloween Prods. site. Some pretty cool stuff. I think I read the guy that does them for them used to work for MTV. He made the cgi mirror effects they had at the show about 5 or 6yrs ago I think. They were the ones with the rules and ect for your haunt. And then he did the commercials for a haunt as well.

Damon,

Yes! You are correct. That is the guy I was referring to. I just cannot remember his name. I thought at one time the commercials and haunt intros were available at hauntedhousesupplies.com. I know I have seen samples of the intros and commercials somewhere, maybe on one of the Hauntworld videos.

They're now working on www.hauntedhousesupplies.com but only half are uploaded. Two of them have audio for a specific client: Madam Olga and the Aging Portrait. We're changing the audio on both of those items.

I haven't announced them being added to our site yet because the update is not complete. Once we get the update totally done I was going to anounce something.

I'll let you know when all the videos work, but over half have videos now.

Oh yeah the video of the western guy with fire will be added after we change that video as well.

Larry,

Glad to know you are making the living portrait less attraction specific. Any chance the new script could feature the guy with a more ominious voice and perhaps not reference his 'vampire family'? Just sounds a little corny! Other than that they rock! Can't wait to see when the seance one in the mirror goes live.

I thought I already posted that the vampire portrait will have a different audio track...so will the Madam Olga.

We're also upload the rest of the videos of the other effects today.

JUST FYI... We have uploaded THREE more videos to the CGI page.

You can go and download them now. Count Dracula, Wolfman, and Seance Room.

Check them out.

We have a couple more to add, such as Ghostly Outlaw, Melting Man and two of them will have new voice tracks.

Larry,

Do these work on a regular 4:3 TV or do they require a 16:9 TV? I'm most interested in the seance mirror.

Well that's pretty nice looking. I hope we might see that at TW this year. I think I know how they do that, and its a really simple process- you just need a high dollar digital projector and some other stuff.
I'd like to see how its put together.

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to add my 2 cents here for what ever it is worth. The equipment needed to use CGI can be a $400.00 projector or a TV, a DVD player and a simple sound system. There are other systems available for projection Such as our VFX projection system modules. You don't have to use expensive specialized equipment. It really depends on your attraction and budget.

I was going to be exhibiting at Transworld but unfortuantly due to my Fathers recent passing I had to cancel. I will be exhibiting at Hauntcon with our VFX Modules plus all of our new products. I will be happy to answer any questions regarding how to use CGI in your attraction. The video found on YouTube is a great example on how you can use it.

By the way Larry, my hats off to you on your CGI effects, excellent work.

Any questions please feel free to e mail me at hollow3d@pacbell.net

Some of the effects are used with simple $100 tv's while others are done with 2500 big screen tvs, and others are done with projectors. Its all over the planet. While at the TW show I will be explaining all of that.

Anyone wanting any just let me know.

The video you saw in the UTUBE video...that was done by US! We did that!

Thanks Dave!

Thanks Kel,

As hard as it is to loose him I am relieved he is no longer suffering.

Since I won't be at Transworld one of the first orders of business is updating the website. I will get video and photos of all the new CGI and products uploaded as soon as possible.

I wish everyone a very successful Transworld show. Stay warm.
