Didn't realize that the last post was back in JULY! If you are reading this (or for myself later...) I will be posting more stuff after we go "LIVE" with the show in just a few short days.
It is 6am Sunday morning. That is not unusual for me on a Sunday morning. What is unusual is the fact I have been up almost every day this week at 3 and 4am (normally get up at 5am during the work week) to sequence. Honestly, not even to sequence...just to change over sequences. I will post some of the stuff from Halloween, since I really added a good bit from last year. Thought I was going to be ahead in having so much stuff done ahead of time. Maybe I am. We will know in a few days. I honestly had hoped to have EVERYTHING done by now...but no.
Few Quick Lessons learned before I go back to moving sequences over from last year's setup;
You can never start to early. Especially on sequencing. Probably won't be able to do but maybe ONE new chart because I started so late.
If you do a Halloween show, incorporate as much as possible into that show for your Christmas Show. Maybe.....every single Christmas Tree will be GHOST next year ;-)
Take better notes! For example, I started putting up my "Spiral Tree". Well I had plans on incorporating a new design that one fellow here in GA used. Went into a panic when I couldn't see how in the world I was going to get the strands up on the tree without a taller ladder. Found a forum topic I had been a part in and then it hit me....YOU WERE GOING TO DO THAT TOO! Oh well.
Click on the September archive and then click on comments to see all of the 2009 display blogs. I am going to start blogging with a "Title" and also put the post into the blog so it can be archived by month. Should have done that to begin with. If you are new to this world of "Animated Displays", I suggest you not only read mine, but other blogs. They will help you learn NOT to make the same mistakes others have.
