A music teacher from California has lit up his entire property, added a 17-foot guitar, and set the entire thing to a Star Wars mash-up. #starwars #christmas #abc #lightup @ABC
The five-minute lightshow — which, by the way, would put most professional stage crews to shame with its precision and choreography — involves about 100,000 lights and 12,500 lighting channels, according to the creator. Revel in the magic, and just be glad you don't live next door.
Star Wars-Themed Christmas Light Show Is So Excessive And So Amazing
Best of Star Wars Music Christmas Lights Show 2014 - Featured on Great Christmas Light Fight!
Here's my tribute to my favorite songs on Star Wars! The display has been featured on ABC's The Great Christmas Light Fight and twice on ABC's Good Morning America. I sequenced the show using LOR, mixed the music/sound effects with Digital Performer, and filmed it using a 35' lift at 3am :) This is now my second year decorating. I built all the props using wood, metal, acrylic and corrugated plastic. I am a music/teacher director for a living (COVA Conservatory in Oakland and Centerville Presbyterian Church in Fremont), hence the massive instruments! If you look closely (especially during the Cantina song) the instruments are playing the real notes! The beams can be seen for miles but I went out of my way to avoid shining the beams on houses and flight paths. The neighbors are very supportive especially since I use the display to raise money for the poor and homeless through my church. The guitar is 17', the piano is 19' and the drums are standard. About 12,500 channels running around 100,000 lights. Also, Come by and see it in person on the corner of Lafayette and Ruschin in Newark most nights from 6-10pm. Because of the light beams on the roof, I turn off the display in heavy rain. Fair use for educational purposes. Merry Christmas everyone!
