AveRage Joe inspired me to do my own test – a generator baseline load test.
Where do you find cells for a DIY Powerwall and what do you do with them when you find them? We’ll cover this and more in this episode!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Kicking off a new year and a new project, but this one is not lighting related. Don’t worry though, I have plenty to do with the display this year and will work on those at the same time.

A funky version of Joy To The World that’s a neighborhood child favorite. Camera is a Sony FDRAX53/B 4K HD camcorder (https://amzn.to/2Qu24CQ). Multiple camera angles mixed in Adobe Premiere.
I had some time this past weekend to work on one of the props bothering me a little. The new frame did what I wanted. After reaching a stopping point, I noticed something really bad.
This is the sequence I spent the most time on last year and added the new 2018 props to the mix. The music is two custom songs I created on my iPad. Also trying out the multi-camera feature of Premiere – I like it. I hope you do too! Camera is a Sony FDRAX53/B 4K HD camcorder (https://amzn.to/2Qu24CQ).

This is a short video on my 110v main layout for the display. I’m running one circuit and powering off most of the display after the show ends. The big switch is a Wemo Insight (https://amzn.to/2Q4X4VU) module from Belkin controlled from Home Assistant (https://www.home-assistant.io) or the Wemo app on my phone.
Message to new subscribers and completed setup. Complete walkthru and some prop construction details.

Started setting up the display this week because I have a lot to do (new stuff) and weather may not be great as we get closer to Thanksgiving. I didn’t make a ton of progress, but am set up for the weekend work.
Should I start selling this jig? I think it’s pretty awesome! I built it to help me assemble a 512-pixel, ChromaMesh 3″ CLEAR matrix from Boscoyo Studio.
