EDM/Dubstep RGB LED Christmas Light Show (2018)

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).

Power Chat – Mains Layout (2018)

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.

This was shot with a Lumix GH5 http://amzn.to/2AlvY1x with an Olympus 12-40/2.8 lens http://amzn.to/2jxPPTe, both rented from a local camera store. The video was filmed in 4K about 15 minutes after sundown with the following camera settings: sensitivity set to 3200, shutter speed set to 60, aperture set to f11, white balance set to incandescent.

This was the song I sequenced “live”, well, on video anyway. I let xLights choose random effects and edited some of them afterwards, but if you watched the earlier video, you’ve seen how the sausage was made! LOL!

This is the first time I have used a talking head in my display. It was a neat skill to learn and I hope I’ve done it justice.

Song: Christmas Dubstep [Rewind Remix Release]
Music provided by Rewind Remix: http://tinyurl.com/rewindremix
Artists: Dany​Vin

This is my oompa loompa song for 2017. It’s a medley of two songs I created on my iPad. The first is EDM (Electronic Dance Music) and the second is dubstep. They don’t have anything to do with Christmas, but are neat to program the lights to. The third is from Dany Vin and is a short Christmas dubstep song. I hope you enjoy the show!
