The Force is Strong With This Star Wars Christmas Light Show! [Video]

This IS the rebel light show you’ve been looking for!

Since 99% of the lights are LEDs, the electricity to run the show for the entire month is about $80. I sequenced the show using LOR, mixed the music/sound effects with Digital Performer, and filmed it using a Sony A7s Mark ii and a Phantom 3 Pro. This is now my third year decorating. I built all the props using wood, metal, acrylic and corrugated plastic. I am a music director for a living (Centerville Presbyterian Church in Fremont), hence the massive instruments! If you look closely (especially during the Cantina song) the instruments are playing the real notes! Although the beams are powerful up close, they are a small percentage of real searchlights and are so widely dispersed that by the time they are up in the sky, they don’t interfere with aircraft etc. The guitar is 17′, the piano is 19′ and the drums are standard. About 20,000 channels running around 70,000 lights.
