I mentioned this DVD in a thread
last Halloween, but it's a really cool product so I like the idea of starting a dedicated topic for it. Here were my thoughts...
is made with the intention of projecting onto a large sheet placed over your house windows. If you don't have the hardware for projecting, this video of creepy cool animations would look fine even just playing on your TV. I really like the animation style and themes chosen for this collection:
A quality product, I must say. If you like the illustrated style of these animations, you should be pleased.
Just be aware that there are 2 animations on the disc, each about 2 minutes long. And 4 extras that basically repeat one of the scenes on a loop (spiders, ghosts, etc).
The entire animations are shown in the sample videos on the site, so don't expect a ton of footage you can just sit down and watch. But for it's intended purpose of projecting in your window on Halloween, a 2 minute animation is probably long enough for passing trick-or-treaters. Wouldn't want it to be too engrossing, or they might set up lawn chairs and turn your front yard into a makeshift drive-in theater.
I had a couple Halloween functions last October and had these animations looping on the big TV the whole time. I love it. Hopefully I'll own a digital projector some day so I can use it (and similar products) on the windows as intended!
