This short clip
found on most of their DVDs [this one specifically from their Haunt Makeover DVD] shows their most advanced effect. [Don't be fooled by the fact that this is YouTube. It is actually by the same company.]
If you can succeed in making the structure at eye-level for all ages, you can make a head float in mid-air! Now, in this video, they show the structure in a window, which probably isn't the best use of the product, but it may work in some places. If you want your head in a more open setting, you could probably find a way to disguise the TV, and you could put a box around the plastic sheet.
Knowing this trick, you can work about the technical hassles and begin the fun! Decorate around it, or make a sÃƒÂ©ance scene with some actors!
There is one DVD that does
provide guidance for a Hollywood-level Haunted House that utilizes their products using this trick and many more. There are other DVDs that actually give you the material to work with, such as talking heads, singing heads, giant eyes, and even circular crystal ball illusions [you can use the above trick, but with a circular object behind the plastic for the circular image]!
They also offer 9 QUALITY
Environment FX CDs [which I don't really need, but whatever floats your boat] and a CD of the songs that are sung by the heads [some are actually catchy] for the younger of the audience.
You could argue that putting giant eyes [one on each of two TV sets] in your windows could be a bit cheesy, but these are quite HQ, and they look kind of creepy.
Anyway, I'm curious to clarify if you said you got one of the DVDs from Big Scream TV, or if you got a random, crappy one. If you're asking about these as a newcomer to this
company, than my answer is ABSOLUTELY YES
! These DVDs have AMAZING
quality. What the heads say in the DVDs that I do
have is PERFECT
for trick-or-treaters, and this series is especially designed for true yard haunts like ours. I will say once again that I have yet to buy anything other than the three volumes of the talking heads, which are AWESOME
but I plan to buy the rest later this week, and I'll reply when they come in the mail. Right now, however, I have very high expectations and a gut feeling that they will be fulfilled.
