    Default First Year with a show.

    No videos yet, tried recording some with a drone tonight but I wasn't happy with the result.

    Below are just a few pictures I wanted to share with the community. I did a 64 channel ac display, all from scratch.

    Drum set and reindeer look awesome at night.

    Intro - What is a Santa Claus
    Christmas Medley - Maynard Ferguson
    Sugar Rum Cherry - Duke Ellington
    Hit the Ground Running - Gordon Goodwins Big Phat

    My latest video attempt was at dusk with the lights @ 10% still not great.

    It is soooo frustrating. I have posted elsewhere in the forum and reddit if anyone has any tips on capturing it. What a pain in the ass!

    I used an app called "FiLMIC Pro" on my phone. I think it cost about $10, but it lets you modify many settings on your phone camera. Not compatible with all phones, but there is an evaluator app that lets you check if your phone is compatible. It took some messing with the settings, my show runs at 20% brightness. The high density star tends to blend together when fully lit, but other than that I am happy with the results. BTW this was my first year.

    Here is a link to some videos of my show taken in total darkness in Alaska. Not perfect, but better than the stock camera app.
