Hi folks. My name is Marc and I live on Brisbane's southside. We've been doing a light display for several years as well as organising a lights competition in our suburb (we came second in 2011). Up until now, our light display has been pretty static. This year, we decided to look at dipping our toes into the world of animated lighting. I strongly suspect we're going to need a lot of help along the way. We have a lot of existing lights, but I suspect we'll need to buy a lot more to make this work. Our current lights include quite a lot of sets of LED strings and LED icicles purchased from Big W. There's also a lot of frame type items (my wife has a bit of an obsession with DealsDirect) as well as some inflatables which the local kids seem to love. Last year I set up a laser with a small speaker, but could only have it pointing at the driveway, so few people saw it. Despite working in the IT industry, I'm no tech genius. My eldest son (30) has offered to do the programming while middle son has volunteered to be in charge of fog and lasers (apparently). So that's the history, the future is up to us and with your help, we're hoping to go one better in this years' comp. I'm looking forward to a fun and (hopefully) not to expensive journey into the world of animated Christmas lights.
