  • [Question] Special Effects Question

    Does anyone know the secret to those candles on the OUTSIDE of the Haunted "Nightmare Before Christmas" Mansion? How did they get the "candles" to twinkle so realistically?? It's extraordinary!

    I believe it is a series of LED lights that go off at pre-programed times very quickly. This is not uncommon to other fake candles that you can find in your local store but the Disney ones seem to use more LED lights than the common 2LED system and have much more precise dimming timings per LED that flashes.

          Either they made them
          or purchased them and put a Disney spin ("magic") on it

          To that end I'd like the Internet community to join me in reminding the Disney company that "it all started with Walt." As you can see below we've created some T-shirts, plus a few simple graphics that you can copy and paste into your websites to let folks know how you feel.

                Here are the exact candles that Disney uses for both HM and HMH.

                Rosco US : Prop and Scenic Products : Candles

                They flicker on their own, no fancy boxes or computer programs.

                If you interested in the pumpkin's that Disney uses up and down main street and around MHM, These are the pumpkin's they order.

                http://www.funkins.com/TheFunkinPatch/

                However some of the pumpkin's on HMH are custom, but not all.
