Sometimes we even impress

ourselves :D

This is the new video effect we created for 2010.  It is a singing statue, inspired by the Leota statue at the exit of the Haunted Mansion.

The statue is one of what we call our multi media pieces (we use both foam and monster mud techniques).  It is supposed to look like it is an unfinished sculpture - with just the head and part of the upper body completed.

The song that she sings is a edited version of "The House is Haunted" originally recorded by Mel Torme.  A good friend of ours, singer, actor, writer (retired newscaster) Margie Boule' was kind enough to record the song for us with the help of her good friend Steve who created the music track helped us record the finished version....which is amazing. 

The first time we heard it we went....."well that just moved our haunt up a few notches....we are going to have to work harder to keep up! :D"

We then filmed Margie in ghost makeup (she had been a ghost in a production a few years ago) and then husband edited it for the projector.

So here is a close up of the singing bust from our 2010 display.  The video does really not do justice to how great it looked in the yard.  Wish all of you could have been there to see it :)  This will have to do.
