BlakeGravitt Posted May 12, 2011 Share Posted May 12, 2011 With the upcoming "On Strager Tides" it would seem that Pirates are back in popularity. The movie has gotten some good reviews so far. I am a sucker for these movies and this is what my Halloween has been based on for the last three years.Just wondering if anyone had some display/prop ideas they were kicking around. Any sequences done to POTC soundtracks?Last year I had the perpetual drinking pirate, made from a fountain pump and rum bottle sitting in a wooden barrel, a mechanical moving ships wheel with Cap'n Skully attached, pirates swinging down from the roof on ropes, a cannon "fired" with a red floodlight among many other things.The cannon was built into a pirate ship. It was a PVC cannon that "fired" with a red flood synchronized with cannon fire on the song, on the other side of the yard was a wooden half-barrel planter filled with water and red submersible LEDs. I also had a pnuematic solenoid fired from LOR to splash the water towards the sky as if a cannon ball was just dropped into the water. It made for a really cool effect to have LOR timing the cannon, pause, and then the water splash with the LEDs illuminating the water. I took a video but the quality was very poor, can barely make anything out. The dog loved the splashing water though!Any ideas or thoughts on how to make a "Stranger Tides" Halloween would be appreciated and any other Pirate props. Movie comes out May 20th, so that should help.Cheers,Blake Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
