  • How I learned about Light-O-Rama -
    An old neighbor of mine had a large choreographed display and over time he showed me how it worked with Light O Rama. I was mesmerized just watching the lights and I just had to start a show myself.

  1. Sale?

    Just received my items today. I bought some 16 channel controllers and rs485 adapters. Ordered the first day of the sale and used the tryforfree promo. That's pretty darn quick!

  3. Summer sale tomorrow! (Whip out those wallets)

    Sorry to hear that Jaynee. Best of luck to him finding a new one!
  4. So I just looked at the LOR website and sure enough there's a big sale banner there and a price sheet. What do you all plan to get at the sale? I'm going to grab 3 residential 16 channel controllers, some spt wire and 3 more high speed rs485 adapters.
  5. Hey guys. Just edited some more videos of my first display last year and wanted to post them. Guess I'm a little late to the party but better late than never!
  6. Oldest Sequencer Here?

    I'll throw my hat in to the ring with the young guys. I'm 20. Started last year and am wondering why I didn't start earlier! I personally can't stand the obsession with mobile devices. Don't get me wrong, I love the capability of them and I do own a smartphone and a tablet, but I don't like to spend a lot of time on things that don't give me an end product. That's what I love about sequencing. When you're done you have something to show for it.
  7. "Moana" Movie theme for Halloween

    Hi msbling. I used to live in Hawaii Kai in Kaimala Marina and just moved about a year and a half ago. Are you in the neighborhood across the street from Kaimala Marina? I remember driving through there and seeing one LOR display. I can't think of another one in Hawaii Kai so I'm just curious if that was yours.

  11. What did you MAD GRAB?

    My items are estimated to arrive on the 20th. Pretty darn good if you ask me. I have to say, possibly the most satisfying thing about ordering from LOR is the absolute confidence that if there is something wrong with an item I know it will be corrected/fixed. That makes ordering large volumes of pixels a much less stressful experience.
  12. new computer

    I have a dual monitor setup as well. My primary monitor is a 1440p display, and with that really high resolution I can fit a ton more channels in SE on it than I could with a standard HD 1080p display. 2 monitors in my opinion is a must to have any level of efficiency while sequencing.
  13. So how and when did you get started?

    When I was a kid it was a tradition for me to go out in to the garage, pull all of the bins down off the shelves and get out all of the Christmas lights. I will always remember stringing them out in the living room and testing each strand before carrying it outside to hang it on whatever bush I felt like at the time. I've been decorating since as long as I can remember... and I probably had thousands of Christmas lights to hang even by the time I was 8 years old. Most kids were out in the street throwing a football around or shooting hoops, and I was that one kid spending hours and hours hanging lights. It slowly built up over the years and over time I gained a knowledge of how to create more visually coherent displays. If any of you have ever heard of a neighborhood in southern California called "Balboa Island," you'll know how I was motivated to start decorating. There are hundreds of homes all with incredible, massive scale Christmas displays, and during the season it attracted tens of thousands of visitors just to see it. Because of the sheer amount of grand displays, the neighborhood lighting contest was fierce, and I was able to win an award 4 years in a row. I had constructed 7ft tall painted wooden cutouts of a Christmas tree and a snowman, and drilled hundreds of holes through them in which to stick multi-function mini lights. The effect was spectacular and it probably won me the award by itself. By the time I moved I was decorating 3 of the neighbor's houses because of how much they liked my display. That is a time that I can never relive but I am so thankful to have been raised in that environment. It spurred so much creativity and the desire to construct and design things. Now I await the arrival of 50 strings of pixels to start getting ready for next year. How things... well haven't changed much haha.
  14. TSO - Paul O'Neil has passed

    I just looked up Carson William's display, and indeed it was the video I saw. A true classic, and the choreography still holds up today.. in face probably some of the most effective choreography that I've seen for Wizards in Winter to date.
  15. TSO - Paul O'Neil has passed

    I have not used any TSO songs in my display as I do not like convention, however the first video I ever saw of a choreographed lights display was using Wizards in Winter. I remember the first time I saw that on Youtube I was mesmerized. I was probably 12 years old at the time and I can still recall playing the video over and over again. 61... too young.
