Joy To The World – Go Fish – RGB Pixel Light Show (2018)

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.

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).
