Mapping the House (Keynote)

      This video will take you through the steps of mapping out your house. Make sure you have your housing complete and secure. If not.... you will have to do it all over again if it moves. This will take some time. Make sure you have a comfortable place to work. When it is cold... I have been known to pull my car up in the yard and run the HDMI through the window to enjoy the heat of the car while I do the mapping.

Mapping a house - Bates Haunt

      This tutorial reveals one of the tricks behind my award winning projection show. I first started using this technique in 2003, and it is the same technique used by Disney to do all of their recent projection shows like "Magic the Memories and You" and "Ghost Galaxy". Decided to finally release it. All you need is a projector, laptop, and a full screen drawing program of some sort. A "3D trace" of a 3D surface is created which makes it easy to place any kind of creative content in exactly the location you want.
